Some weddings leave me feeling energized, refreshed and so extremely happy and full of love. Sofia and Caleb’s wedding was one of those magical days! Even though their wedding was the last Saturday in July, it was not hot! Did you read that right? Not hot! It was insane. All of us kept remarking about the beautiful weather. Sofia and Caleb were in awe of their gorgeous wedding day weather. It was such a blessing.

Sofia and Caleb were the most amazing bride and groom ever and their wedding was stunning. Just wait until you see all of their photos below. They were both visibly nervous before their first look. Once they saw each other though you could see all their nerves fall immediately away and it was replaced with true happiness and joy. They are seriously the most adorable couple ever and the way they interact together is beautiful.

Their wedding ceremony was one of the books. Caleb’s eyes welled up with tears as his gorgeous bride walked down the isle to him. It was truly touching and I think we all cried a little with him. The sermon was beautiful and had the whole crowd inspired to love deeper.

After the ceremony everyone headed to the Rhatigan Student Center at Wichita State University for their reception. The ballroom was decorated beautifully and filled with Sofia’s Friends and family. There was biscuit bar full of fruit, jams, and honey. It was seriously the best thing I had ever seen! The guest all loved it too. The dance floor was filled with energy that was contagious and the evening ended with a send off where the guest tossed sprinkles at Sofia and Caleb as they ran to their car.

Sofia and Caleb, thank you for letting me be part of your amazing wedding day. I wish you all the best and hope you have many extremely happy, blessed years in your future.
