Matt & Misty

A Downtown Paducah & Walker Hall Wedding

This was a fun wedding! Matt & Misty did not stop smiling or laughing all. day. long. Apart they are calm and relaxed, but together they are even better. I think that’s how you know you’re suppose to be with someone…when you’re fine without them, but you’re 10x better when you’re with them. As soon as Misty is with Matt, she is completely relaxed and she knows she’s taken care of. When Matt is with Misty, he literally doesn’t stop smiling. They laugh and have so much fun just being together.

They had so much support from their friends and family on their big day. There were sweet moments with their parents and their siblings and it was obvious everyone was excited. They’re the babies in their families, so it was fun to watch their older siblings surround them with love and excitement! Enjoy some of my favorites from their special day in downtown Paducah!

I told him to look over his shoulder like a bride does when she’s getting dressed (jokingly) and his best man immediately made that face. These guys are goofballs!

Misty’s niece literally gasped when she saw her in her dress! How sweet!

I just love a good first look! Matt’s smile says it all!

Love Emily’s shot below!

Em also did great with the guys pics too!

The best man joked about putting Misty on the giant yak and she said, “Come on, let’s do it!”

 Sweetest first look with dad too! The love Misty & Matt have for their nieces is adorable! Look at Matt with these two!

Matt had this message put into Misty’s dress. It’s based off of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”!


The littlest “flower princess” literally RAN across the room for her reception introduction! So cute!!

Remember how I said they love their nieces…they surprised them with a special Moana dance!
