You Are What I Couldn’t Find.
The day started early for the bride squad and Emily -as they arrived at the scene at 7:25 am! Of course, there was plenty of water and Gatorade waiting for them as their beauty routines began. The ladies needed to stay hydrated for the day ahead and for all the dancing taking place -and Boy! They danced their feet off!
Emily was ready at 12:00 pm and headed to the ceremony -which took place at the Brick barn. It is always cute to learn that the groom does not see the bride until the ceremony. For all the people claiming romance is dead, Emily and Cody sure proved them wrong. The look in Cody’s eyes as they caught the first glimpse of his bride was invaluable.
When Cody and Emily officially became Mr. and Mrs., they headed back to the reception.
A “Grupo Norteño,” which literally translates into “Northern musical group,” was already there, cheering the guests and setting the mood for an unforgettable afternoon. A photo booth was also installed on the patio, and so the fun continued!
Not only we got to witness such powerful emotions, we actually got a high five from one of the youngest guests a beautiful little girl. How cannot we love what we do?
The Wedding of Cody & Emily
How can one describe a wedding by calling it “cool” without diminishing its relevance? In all truthfulness, Cody and Emily’s wedding cannot be labeled any other way. The whole day reverberated of good vibes, chillness, but above all, warmth. I’m reminiscing a super sunny day, a sense of familiarity and an honest love between all the attendees you could actually feel. The love the guests have for the newlyweds was palpable, and the look in Emily’s eyes told them all she’d waited her whole life to experience this day.
Yes, there were stunning flower arrangements at the pool, and Emily looked like royalty in her laced dress. The couple looked ravishing as they cut their cake under a luxurious chandelier. But despite all, like in the movie, loved ruled that day.
Ahhh the Music
- Emily and Cody decided to make an entrance with style; both groom and bride wore sunglasses, and they marched upon while “Dreams” by The Cranberries (Dolores, you are missed! RIP). If there’s an upbeat song to celebrate the commencement of the rest of your life, this is it.
- Then, for their first dance as a married duo, Emily and Cody requested “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys. Three facts we want to highlight about this iconic song. First, did you know when the Beach Boys released the song, it was considered taboo to have the word “god” in song lyrics? (It was in 1966, if you were wondering). Even so, it was an immediate hit.
- The second fun fact is that the song has been used in pop culture often. I am sure you all remember the unforgettable scene at Heathrow Airport from the movie “Love Actually… is all Around,” in which we learn that despite what the media tells us, love is the number one ruler.
- Finally, we thought the song was the ideal way to depict Emily and Cody’s union. This wedding reflected the true meaning of getting married! You could see people dancing, holding hands, a daddy carrying his little girl, a mother enjoying dessert while a stroller was next to her.
We’d like to give a big ol RunMC shout out to the friend who caught the bouquet like a pro!
