Dylan & Camri

May 3, 2018

River Island Country Club | Porterville, California

Dylan and Camri Wedding took place at the beautiful River Island Country Club Wedding in Porterville, California. Wow this was a gorgeous golf course! With a river wandering thru and the surrounding hillsides made this spring time wedding the perfect backdrop for this sweet couple.

Dylan and Camri have known each other since high school, and were always good friends. Ironically they began their relationship a few years later while Dylan was living in Texas. He stepped in as a daddy to Camri’s daughter endearing him to her all the more. Pretty neat watching this family together.

Life sometimes throws you a curve ball when you least expect it.  It shows a whole lot about a family how they handle unexpected  challenges together.  Camri’s grandmother unexpectedly passed away just one day before the wedding.  It was very inspiring how each family member rallied to make this important day special for Dylan and Camri as well as honoring a very special lady.  As much as I know your sweet Grandma would want to be with you, I know she would be so proud of each you and how you handled this past weekend.

Despite the emotional hardships, there still was a whole lot of joy infused into this special day.  Little laughters of nieces, nephews, and cousins playing, amazing supportive bridesmaids, and funny groom mens.  Every bride’s dream is to witness their Groom in such a sweet first look as Camri came down the aisle. I have heard a few amazing speeches over the years but I have never heard a matron of honor rap her speech! Bethany had everyone in giggles with her personalized rap to Ice, Ice Baby.

I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and joy together, Dylan and Camri!
