Bailey and Thomas met as neighbors at their apartments. The two would see each other outside and sit on the steps and talk for hours and hours. Soon they would find reasons to go outside just to spend time together and over the course of the years developed a friendship that would turn into an unfailing love. Thomas actually asked Bailey seven (yes-seven!) times to be his girl but she wasn't quite ready until that 7th time. In my opinion, I think she knew that loving Thomas would be forever, and that agreeing to be his girl would be agreeing to be his everything.
She is. She is his everything.
The two decided to do a first look and I asked Bailey to share what that moment was like for her:
"As soon as I walked out of my bride room and rounded the corner to see him standing on that bridge with his back to me, I lost it. I could barely keep it together. As soon as I saw him all the stress from the day just went away, and I hadn't even seen his face yet! When I finally got to him and got to turn him around, I couldn't stop the tears from forming. He was already crying and I don't believe I've ever felt more beautiful or loved than in that moment. I knew that I'd have nothing to worry about the rest of the day, because that was all I needed right there."

Bailey and Thomas,
I am so grateful to have been a part of your wedding day. It was an honor and I don't believe I've been so emotional at any other wedding. The way you look at each other, so full of trust, love, loyalty, is inspiring. It's almost like you need each other just to simply breathe. I can't wait to watch your precious family grow.
