In regards to their secret wedding back on April 3rd, 2015: "With Bobby joining the military, we knew he'd be stationed in Cali. We knew we wanted to get married down the road so eloping sounded way less stressful than being long distance for anymore time(it had been 2 years at that point). Bobby had always wanted to have a big wedding in the backyard, so keeping it under wraps was our way of still having the fun that comes with planning a big wedding. And a bonus ended up being figuring out what it meant to be husband and wife without the outside pressures of social media, etc" -Haley
Fast forward to December 31st, 2016 where Haley and Bobby rang in the new year in style celebrating their "I-do's," making them public in the family's backyard with all their friends and extended family. The backyard by the way, was converted into one of the best and dreamiest of venues I've ever seen! Kudos to the family and their event planner, Elizabeth Marcou for making it so amazing! I am so happy to have gotten the opportunity to spend time with these two and all their people as we counted down the end of 2016 and started 2017 off with a bang!(Literally with all the sparklers and fireworks!)
Lastly, a huge shout out and thank you to my friend and amazingly talented photographer, Jo Julia Ramsey for shooting with me and giving up her NYE to do so!
Without further ado: Check out Haley and Bobby's special day!
A very special thank you to all the vendors who helped to make their day so special! And enough cannot be said to thank Bobby's parent's for their role in hosting on their property and putting so much time and effort to convert it into an unbelievable venue space!
