Circle M City Wedding – Jonathan and Aubrianna are Married!

This was my first Circle M City Wedding, and it was a really different place to shoot a wedding. The old west town mixed with the newness of Jonathan and Aubrianna’s married relationship was a stellar mix. These two had a blast and a day like no other!

About the Couple

Where did your wedding take place?

Circle M City

What was your favorite moment on your wedding day?

right before I walked down the isle when I looked at my dad and said “my nerves are gonna make me puke” luckily, I did not. 

What was the most helpful piece of advice you received when it came to planning your wedding?

Two pieces of advice. One of them we heard all through out being engaged “something is going to go wrong” it really helped prepare us for the things that did go wrong. The second one was about 30 minutes before the ceremony, my nerves were at an all time high and one of my longest friends grabbed me and said “when you reach the beginning of the isle & you see Jonathan at the end of it, you won’t be able to walk to him fast enough” and oh boy was she right. 

What was the biggest reason you chose Dave Shay Photography on your wedding day?

You’re confident in your work, your price is truly, truly worth what we paid for, you have such a great sense of humor, and you really cared about delivering the best of the best to your clients
