Where do I even start with this wedding?! This was by far one of the most emotional and beautiful weddings that I have ever had the privilege to shoot.
Shortly after they were engaged, Billy, Lacy, and their family received tragic news that Lacy’s mom, Karen, had been diagnosed with cancer. During their engagement months, their family experienced many ups and downs with Karen’s health — and at some points, were unsure of whether to continue the planning process or not. But being the fighter that she is, Karen wanted them to keep planning.
About one month before the wedding, they received positive news on Karen’s cancer. On their wedding day, Billy and Lacy were able to not only celebrate their marriage, but celebrate life!
Ps – almost everything for their wedding was DIY! Billy, Lacy, and their family poured their hearts, souls, blood, sweat, and tears into hand-crafting nearly every single piece of their wedding. In fact, during those long months of cancer treatments, Karen actually HAND-MADE Lacy’s beautiful wedding gown. What a truly special day!
