Hayley and Riley got married on a beautiful Saturday in February out at Cricket Hill Ranch in Dripping Spring, Texas. These high school sweethearts had been waiting for this day for a long time! Iʼm honored to share it with you.
Heartfelt Wedding for High School Sweethearts
Intro to the couple: Hayley and Riley are the true definition of “high school sweethearts”. Riley was a high school football player and asked Hayley to prom. They even wore coordinating outfits in their high schoolʼs color of green – I saw the picture! Fast forward a few years and they both have graduated from college AND both attended grad school. Since they already accomplished all these things together, doing the rest of life together seemed like a pretty darned good idea, right?
Hayleyʼs three older sisters (who are TRIPLETS, by the way) were part of her amazing bridesmaid court who wore the perfect shade of Lavender and surrounded Hayley with love and support all day long. Hayley wore a stunning gown by Willowby by Watters and it fit her perfectly. Riley and his groomsmen were decked out in blue suits with tartan plaid bow ties. We DID have a bow tie gone rouge! But Rileyʼs mom actually made one out of some leftover fabric just minutes before the ceremony.
A Sunset Ceremony Under the Oak Trees
Their wedding day started out overcast and windy. And even though the threat of rain was long past, we all longed for a golden sunset for these two genuine people. As Hayleyʼs dad walked his youngest daughter down the aisle, the sun peeked out from behind the clouds as if timed just for them. When she met Riley at the altar and these two souls, who have known each other for so long, promised to make it forever the sun streamed through the trees as if to surround them in golden light. After their vows, they made a gorgeous exit to their reception, complete with an extra kiss down the aisle.
Hayley and Riley, Iʼm so honored to have been part of your long-awaited wedding day. Wishing you all the best in love and life!
