I’ve known Paige since middle school. One of her cousins (who’s also in the bridal party) has been my best friend since sixth grade. I spent a good bit of my middle school summers at my best friends house, and we often got to play with Paige. Her parents also gave me my first job as a grocery clerk at Nutter Fort Foodland
Fast forward to 2011.. I fly in from Miami to shoot a wedding that Paige attended. At some point during the reception Paige came over to say hi and we started chatting. She asked me what I thought about the groomsman Heath. I told her I thought he was cute and seemed really nice, and to go for it! And she did! I’m happy to say from that night on they have been inseparable.
Paige and Heath were engaged in 2012 and wed in 2013 at the 4T arena in Bridgeport, WV. I was so honored to be a part of their day! Paige had to have been the most relaxed bride I have EVER shot. It was obvious that all she wanted was to marry Heath and everything else was second.
Anyone that knows Paige (or has stalked her on social media), knows that she LOVES Miranda Lambert. Paige’s wedding inspiration came from Miranda and Blake Shelton’s laid back country wedding (I swear I started writing this blog post weeks before they announced their separation. Sorry Paige).
Wait until you see the bouquet Paige’s mom and sister made for her!! …
All the girls had on white button up shirts with their initials on them. Button up shirts are a must to avoid messing up hair and makeup.

I LOVE this first kiss photo!
Gorgeous bridesmaids! Can you believe their dresses are from Target?!
Paige, you were such a beautiful bride.
I’m obsessed with the brooch bouquet her mom and sister made her.
One of my all time favorite photos.
The 4T arena is such a unique venue! I highly recommend it!
