Blake and Kody were married this past weekend at The Manor in Rockwall which is part of The Springs Event Venues in Rockwall. Blake is a wedding planner that I’ve know for years and always loved working with him. When he got engaged, he called and asked me to photograph his wedding, I was so honored. I loved seeing him so happy with Kody and Kody’s kids, Cruz and Sofia.
Blake and Kody met online and talked for several days. They eventually met up for a date at a nearby restaurant and they’ve been together ever since. Kody proposed in Vegas while we were there on a work trip. Blake had NO idea this was going to happen. Blake, Kody, and one of Blake’s groomswomen went out to the Bellagio. Kody dropped to one knee and asked during the fountain show! They then spent the night celebrating with work friends!
The Manor in Rockwall looked AMAZING! With Blake being in the wedding industry, I knew he would have the most perfect decor. He certainly let his team take over and made it look gorgeous! I loved the navy blue and orange, the centerpieces, and the cakes were a showstopper!
Blake and Kody kept it traditional and chose not to do a first look. I’ve never seen Blake so nervous and emotional and knowing just how much he is love, makes me so happy. The kids love him so much which just makes it all around the best relationship. Kody walked down the aisle with his mom, then the kids came, and then Blake made his entrance. Kody was fighting back the tears and so was Blake. Their vows were so beautiful and then Blake added vows to the kids and we all lost it. I don’t think there was a dry eye with his words to Sofia and Cruz. Cruz came and gave Blake a big hug, and told him he was too hot and wanted to play in the sprinklers 🤣. Blake and Kody exchanged rings and then it was time to seal it with a kiss!
The reception started off with their first dance and then it was time for dinner. After dinner, we finished up the other wedding formalities like cake, toasts, and parent dances, then it was time to P A R T Y! DJ Chris Brown had that dance floor packed all night and they turned it up!
They left through a tunnel of sparklers and ended the most perfect night. Kody, thank you for loving my crazy friend and showing him what true love is. You and your beautiful kids are in wonderful hands with him and I know you two will have such a happy life.
