Imagine a couple dating that drives halfway EVERY night to meet before bed for a good night kiss…That’s the kind of couple that Bill and Simone are. Bill’s sister told us that cute little story before their wedding ceremony and let me tell you – it’s so incredibly obvious that that’s just who they are. Bill and Simone have the sweetest, most endearing display of love that we’ve ever witnessed. It was easy to tell right away that there was a natural chemistry between them and we weren’t surprised to see this manifest itself in love and laughter on their wedding day.
Bill and Simone Armendarez were married at the Kentucky Wesleyan Tapscott Chapel in Owensboro, Kentucky. Before the ceremony, we started right away shooting some detail shots. This wedding was full of soft, romantic touches – our favorite! Simone’s dress was a photographer’s dream! It had the most beautiful undertones of blush and was decorated with tulle and lace! We can’t leave out Bill, though! He looked so handsome and was oh so calm throughout the whole day! Once we finished up with our detail shots, we moved onto the “first look”.
We set Bill up on the steps of the Tapscott Chapel. When Simone tapped Bill on the shoulder and he turned around, our tears were almost instant. It was a heartfelt sight to see. Bill gave a quick glance up and down Simone, smiled, and kissed her instantly. His eyes immediately lit up when he saw her smile. Their laughter and giggles was adorable to watch and it was one of the most touching first looks we’ve ever captured. We can’t say it enough – the honor, love, and admiration that these two have for each other is unreal!
Their wedding ceremony was perfectly tailored to them as a couple. When Simone started to walk down the aisle, the song “At Last” by Etta James started to play. The audience immediately broke out in giggles and Bill cracked up the entire time Simone was walking toward him. We love a couple with a great sense of humor. And those flower girls? Talk about adorable! Once the ceremony ended, we proceeded to get all of the family photos snapped. We then convinced Bill and Simone to meet us out on the front lawn and cozy up under the sunset. We’re not ones to pass up a good sunset backdrop. Guys, their laughter was CONTAGIOUS! They are seriously life goals!
Once the sun had set, we made our way to the Homebuilder’s Association for the reception. The reception was filled with lots of wine, friends, family, and some delicious food! Their first dance was TO-DIE-FOR! I don’t think one set of eyes moved off the two of them the entire song. Bill and Simone know how to have a good time – those two danced their little hearts out!
We had so much fun celebrating Bill and Simone on this special day! Their love for each other was a true show-stopper. Check out some of their shots to catch of glimpse of this once-in-a-lifetime love. Enjoy!
