Babe alert! Amiright?! Miss Stacy made for such a gorgeous bride. From her white Toms wedges to her stunning bevel set engagement ring, she was more than a little prepared to rock out her wedding day. The fantastic hair and makeup efforts of Lily Adkins made her absolutely stunning for her big day!

Oh yeah, her friends and family really love her. There were more than a little tears once she was all put together!

There are no words for the moment her father saw his daughter for the first time as a bride.

In no time at all, the bases were loaded, and Stacy was ready to head down the aisle. Like that(!) she was Mrs. Sikes, and Tyler couldn't have been happier about it.

Between the birch logs that Tyler cut himself and the gorgeous stylings of Your Story Event Planning, their reception was totally on point!

Despite the rain, we headed outside for some of the formal shots of the day. Everyone was able to stay in high spirits despite the relentlessly drippy sky!

The time to celebrate had come, and their guests were anxiously awaiting their arrival. The energy could be cut with a knife is was so thick with excitement!

This sweet and dapper grandfather prayed before dinner. He stirred all of our hearts with the way he spoke of his wife.

When the maid of honor opens with, "I never had brother, but" you know that the sweetest words are about to follow.

Their first dance had a "mushy with a hint of victorious" vibe. Kisses, laughter, and fist pumping abounded.

We slipped outside for some portraits of the two of them. The rain in no way lessened their ability to look totally enamoured with each other. The gorgeous florals provided by Alaskan Floral and Wedding brightened up the otherwise dreary exterior!

I asked Stacy if there were any more shots she wanted and she said, "Oooh! Photograph my friends!" She called them over, and I snapped a few shots of these two soon-to-be newlyweds. It was such fun, spontaneous moment of love. :)

It was clear that these two loved their parents and their parents loved them. These were some of the most animated parent dances I've seen in a while!

We danced, we socked, we ate things. There was *so* much fun to be had at this wedding, and I think it's safe to say that everyone got a piece of that pie!

Stacy and Tyler, I can't thank you enough for letting me be the one to document you wedding day. It was just so freaking wonderful/fun/awesome/goofy. Best wishes as you start your lives together MARRIED!!
