Gabby and I go way back! I did her senior pictures, then her and her sisters pictures in a sister shoot, then I did her Sister Abbey's senior pictures, they referred her cousin to me, and now I get the pleasure of shooting her engagements and Bridals this month and her reception in the fall!
I am LOVING her and Joey's story! They met in high school in emergency response class, and decided they were into each other. They didn't graduate as high school sweethearts, instead they went their separate ways for a while, and he is now a Marine stationed in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
He was able to come to town this week to visit for Independence day, and since Gabby was planning on moving to North Carolina to be with him any way, they decided that they wanted to elope to Vegas! They stayed in a nice Hilton hotel, and (this is the best part) wearing just jeans and a t-shirt, they went to a drive through church (yes, a drive through- they didn't even have to get out of the car!), called "The Little White Wedding Chapel", this is the same church Britney Spears got married at, and said their "I do's" and became Husband and Wife!
I couldn't have done it better myself! What a fun story to be able to tell their kids and grandkids one day.
Not to mention that the grand total of this wedding ceremony was $56.00! Can't beat that!!
I am thrilled about these announcements and even more thrilled to be able to have these wonderful, and FUN people in my life!
