Mr & Mrs Thacker: The Wedding | Conway, Arkansas

Ashley and Mikel are different than most other couples. And, I can't really put my finger on what exactly it is about them that sets them apart, but they just....are. They look at each other differently. They speak to each other, and about each other differently. And, to be honest, every couple has something unique and special about them and their relationship that makes them perfect for each other...but these two? It's pure MAGIC. 

Ashely and Mikel were married on March 18th, which happened to be the dreamiest spring day, ever. Their wedding was perfectly planned with gorgeous florals, lovely attire for the bridal party, a handsome groom, and of course Ashley is an absolute STUNNER....but when I think back to that day there is one part that I will personally never forget. The feet washing. For future reference, if any of my couples ever do this again during their ceremony, I can only assure you that I will be WEEPING like a baby behind my camera the entire time. It is such a humbling, selfless, and spiritual gesture and I know that because of that, this wedding is going to stick with me for a long time. The whole day was emotional, actually. There were so many moments of happy and excited tears..I just can't convey enough through my words how incredibly grateful and honored I feel to be able to beautifully document days like this. Days that you know two families are coming together forever. Things will never be the same. And that's powerful. And now these families have these photos to look back on and show off to the generations to come, and thats not something that I take lightly.

Congratulations again and again to Ashley and Mikel! I can't thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your big day, and wish you two all the happiness in the world!!
