One of the best things about running this business is the pure joy that we get to bring into our couples lives. To be able to show not only just them, but the rest of the world their love and friendship. The legacy that they have created together. But, unfortunately, the truth is that there is just two of us. Just Shauna and Jordon… and because of that, sometimes that means that we have to do the hardest thing for someone with a servant heart to do….
You see, as our business continues to thrive, dates and spots become more limited, which means that scarcity occurs, resulting in couples who inquire with us to have to be turned away, all because their date was already taken.
Unfortunately, Cara and James were one of those couples for us in this last year.
So when the time came to plan for our Cooney Classroom, and we asked who would be interested in modeling for us, we were so elated when Cara and James volunteered. Because if we couldn’t photograph their wedding, the least that we could do for them was to give them the most amazing’y stunning faux wedding photos with us as they prepare for their wedding this month.
So that is exactly what we did.
Angelina with The Apostolic Wife did it yet again on day two by turning Haus 820 into a complete floral dream by bringing in the most incredibly vendor team to bring this Parisian floral magnificence to life. From beginning to end, Blooming Flower Art did the most incredible and exceptional job. The cascading blush, pink, and peach florals were the absolute perfect backdrop and touch to their golden bicycle. And as if that wasn’t enough… they had the cake table, with the best smelling and absolutely stunning cake by Anna Hightower absolutely dripping in some of the most stunning and beautiful florals.
It was a floral dream.
When Cara walked out in her gown from The White Closet with her hair and makeup completed by Jasmine Jefferson, holding James’s hand, tears immediately filled our eyes. We knew that this moment was such a special one, and the level of pride and love for images that were about to be created for them was a gift that could no the replicated.
A gift that we were so proud of.
A gift that was brought to life by all of the amazing vendors that we were so thankful to work with. From the beautiful table scape designed by Angelina (and completed with beautiful chairs yet again by A Chair Affair) to invitations from Shine Wedding invitations to the Louboutin shoes…
Every last detail was perfection.
Cara and James, even though we won’t be able to physically be there on your wedding day, we hope that no matter what, that these images can be a light and blessing in your image. That when you look back on them, that you are reminded of the love, joy, and friendship that you share. That when you look back on these images, that you think of the pure excitement that you felt leading up to your wedding day. The eagerness to marry your best friend. That when you look at these images, you are always reminded of the reason that you chose one another. We hope that every time you look at these images, you are reminded that you are a Cooney Couple, because we will forever be cheering you and your love on, and we absolutely cannot wait to see you two at our next date night, and all of the future date nights. Because in our hearts, you are and always will be a Cooney Couple, and that is something we are so proud to say.
Hugs and lots of love,
Shauna and Jordon
