Everything about Samantha and Matt’s Cameron Estate Inn wedding is seriously wedding goals! This was absolutely one of my favorite weddings of the season. It’s so hard to even say that because EVERY wedding I did this year was a total blast. But, this wedding had a few special moments that really stole my heart.
I knew the day I met Samantha that we were going to be fast friends. Plus, she was completely understanding of the fact that I showed up to the WRONG Starbucks for our client consult! (she’s the best, seriously!) When I finally got to meet Matt during their engagement session, I knew that their wedding was going to be so so special. I had the best time getting to explore Matt’s family property, and getting to know them more. I also got to meet their two insanely adorable children too. those two cuties give me some serious baby fever, let me tell ya!
Their wedding day started out like any other, but Samantha chose to opt for a first look with her dad. I’ve probably said it a thousand times but FIRST LOOKS WITH DAD ARE THE BEST! This moment is such a personal one, and I highly recommend it for all brides.
One of the special moments I referred to for Samantha and Matt’s wedding day was a moment during their ceremony. As with most traditional wedding ceremonies, Samantha and Matt exchanged rings. But, to everyones surprise, they had planned for their daughter to also receive a ring as well. Guys, i’m a sap at every wedding but this moment had me SO choked up!
Another unique moment was when Samantha got to face time with her brother, who was deployed at the time of their wedding. I loved that we were still able to get a photo of the two of them “together” even though he wasn’t able to be there in person.
Last but not least of my favorite moments during this wedding, was when Samantha and her father broke it down for their dance together! They had us all tricked, starting out with a sweet slow song, and then they busted into a full on boogie to “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire! I enjoyed every moment of this wedding, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these guys and their sweet family!
