I don’t know where to begin with Mackenzie and Dave! They are truly one of the sweetest and kindest couples you will ever meet. When we met in New York City last year for their engagement session, we had the best time walking through Central Park together, connecting about life and careers and family. We shot from sunrise until lunch and enjoyed coffee and pastries together at one of Dave’s favorite local places. I immediately felt a connection with them and couldn’t wait to celebrate them in September at Coxhall Gardens.
It was a perfect fall day for them, which is exactly what they had been hoping for. Mackenzie is a nature lover and loved the garden feel of Coxhall while still being able to showcase some lighter colors in the floral design. Her best friend from high school even used some flowers from her own garden to create an indoor garden for the couple. Their day was sentimental and meaningful – the couple chose to have one person each in their bridal party and the bride spent the morning getting ready with her sister and mom. Mackenzie’s late father was honored throughout the ceremony in a candle that was lit on the altar, and her brother read a speech that Mackenzie’s father had written for her wedding day before he passed away. It was beautiful to see the deep love their family has for one another and the legacy that has gone before Mackenzie and Dave as they pledged to continue in the same journey of life and love together.
Mr. & Mrs. Ayres – we love you! Every minute of your day was special, thoughtful and brimming with joy and happiness. We count ourselves so lucky to have been the ones to celebrate alongside you and document these eternal moments for you. Hope you enjoy our favorites of the wedding and that they bring a smile to your face as you relive your perfect day!
