Mike was not Shay’s definition of the perfect man. And the first thing Mike remembers about his future wife?

She made fun of his sunglasses.

Yet as friendship blossomed, so did love, laughter, and budget Tuesday night movies.

This artful play of romance and play was evident at their Riverway Golf Course wedding, captured by Clint Bargen Photography.

Romance was on display in the blush chiffon bridesmaids skirts, bride Shay’s elegant braided updo, and white string lights hanging above tempered wood tables. Metallic accents, meanwhile, added a modern and playful vibe, with brassy plates, silver utensils, and even the glitter-embellished bodice of the bridesmaid gowns. Mike, in a crisp navy blue suit, was both classic and modern.

As for the bride? A braided, messy  updo was playfully elegant, and paired with matching sterling silver earrings and necklace. The illusion lace cap sleeves of her gown paired well with sweetheart cups, an embroidered bodice, and fit and flare silhouette.
