Covan & Cydni // Married // Canyon, TX
So I first met Cydni at a the Permian Basin Bridal and Quincenera Expo this year, she told me she was excited to book me and for some reason I do not remember her mentioning that her and Covan's wedding would be HARRY POTTER Themed!!! So When I walked in to start shooting I was AMAZED!!! I thought I was a huge HP fan but NO!! Cydni is a Hufflepuff and Covan is a Ravenclaw.
The Wedding ceremony was on the beautiful West Texas A&M campus in Canyon, TX. The university has this small beautiful little chapel with the coolest entrance so of course I had to use it for my dress shots! Cydni got ready in one of the smallest room ever but we made it work!! After the ceremony we walked around campus with the newlyweds and their wedding party. I was pretty amazed by how beautiful the campus was and why I had never seen it even though several of my friends attended there.
When we moved on to the reception you walked in and instantly was greeted by Hogwarts! from the music to the floating candle above our heads we were transported into JK Rowlings magical world! Their grand entrance was awesome as they walked in their Hogwarts robes. Covan's best man started the speeches with some stories of their times together and stories of when Coven met Cydni. His best man, Tim had one of the coolest radio personality voices I had ever heard. Now when Cydni's best friend Sarah took the mic we were greeted with stories of their fun times and their love for Disney, which ended with a song. She sang "Covan Kissed the Girl" inspired by the Little Mermaids "Kiss the Girl."
When their first dance began I can honestly say I squealed with excitement! They danced to One Direction's "18." If you know me you know how much I LOVEEEEEEE One Direction so I thought that was super sweet! The night went one with parent dances, a dollar dance and even an anniversary dance which I LOVED. The winners had been married for over 50 years (GOALS!) can I can honestly say that their wedding was one of the funnest wedding I have ever had the honer to photograph. SO MUCH DANCING!! I loved every minute of it!
Congratulations Covan & Cydni. I wish you a Happily Ever After!
