Lily and Johnson. Johnson and Lily. Both were all smiles throughout the entire day. Even at the weeee hours of the morning starting at 6 a.m. these love birds were ready to take on the day and become husband and wife. Its definitely been a long time coming. These high school sweethearts have been waiting nearly ten years to say “I do” and their moment has finally come.
We started out our morning at home of Lily’s parents. Before Johnson can see Lily, he had to make his way through the bridal party to get to her. While Johnson was making his way through – Lily was getting dolled up. The girls we’re too brutal to Johnson and his groomsmen – besides they needed to buy some time to make sure Lily was perfect!
Lily and Johnson, we are so thrilled for the two of you as you start the next chapter of your lives together. Your wedding day unfolded exactly as you imagined and all the beautiful details that you created definitely made your day that more special for you both. We wish you all the joy, love, and happiness in the world and have a wonderful time on your honeymoon in Fiji and we look forward hearing about it! ~ Cam&Tracy

Lily’s gorgeous wedding dress! And we do have to add that she did the wiring herself on that hanger.
Cute little bling on the bottom of her shoes!
A big thanks to Bea Tran from Flowers by Bea for giving the guys and gals some awesome florals to sport for the day!
Because Lily and Johnson saw each other prior to their western ceremony they decided to do a first look with her traditional white gown. Here she is anxiously waiting to get to the Arboretum to see her groom.
Besides Lily – the peacocks are the main attraction here at the Arboretum!
First look time!
The entire group looking gorgeous!
Lily, you were absolutely stunning that day.
Lookin’ FIERCE you two!
And the perfect thing about first looks is having all the time BEFORE your ceremony to do your pictorial session. You end up being calm, cool, and collected before saying your vows. Most importantly, you’ll have plenty more time to hang out with your friends and family during your cocktail hour at your reception. Its definitely a WIN-WIN situation. 🙂
We cannot forget to mention all the DIY that Lily and Johnson did for their wedding. From the pomanders, to the hangers, water bottles and just so much more – they did all themselves. Incredible.
After the ceremony, we all headed out to the East Gourmet Seafood Restaurant for their reception. Gotta love the bobble head cake toppers and the Groom’s cake next to it.
We love candy bars!! And also a friend of Lily’s made those adorable mini cupcakes on the left.
And we’ll end the post with this photograph of their first dance. There is something so right about them. You can just tell that they are so in the moment here and truly in love.
