Married: Colleen + Casey

Colleen and Casey were so contagiously happy on their wedding day! Red Lion Inn was full of gorgeous flowers, beautiful details, and the couples loving friends and family.

The vine for the floral details were hand picked from Colleen’s back yard!
Some special little guests added to the entertainment 
Coleen sent Casey and awesome gift bucket full of all his favorite treats =)

Married: Bryan + Lauren

I met Lauren a few years ago through the town Kids Klub. My kids loved spending the day with Miss Lauren and we got to know her and the Miss Kim at the Rec department. One day the ladies mentioned that they had looked me up (from the name on my checks) and were  following my page. A short time later Lauren announced that she had stuck my business card on her bureau mirror as a hint to her then-boyfriend! Hilarious! fast forward a little bit and Lauren’s mom tells me that Bryan is planning to propose. We captured the whole thing and did their engagement session too. Over time we became friends and my whole family loves Lauren and Bryan – they’re two of the kindest, most loving people you can ever hope to meet. High school sweethearts who have been together forever, now they both spend a lot of time caring for kids (Bryan is a teacher at a high school and Lauren runs several of the Park and Rec programs). Lauren even assisted me at many of my wedding last year when I was pregnant, so she got to know the behind-the-scenes aspect of this crazy business. It’s been so exciting helping with the wedding plans and hearing all the details. It’s hard to believe the day came and went so quickly, but it was certainly magical and beautiful. I couldn’t be happier for these two and feel honored to have watched and captured a piece of their love story.

Congratulations Lauren and Bryan! Here is a peak at their gorgeous wedding day at Bittersweet Farm <3

Lauren and the ladies had a great house for getting ready before the wedding.

Kat spent some time hanging out with the guys at their hotel suite.
These two were a riot all day long!
With everyone at Bittersweet, Bryan and Lauren got to see each other for the first time that day.
They were SO EXCITED
Not going to lie, I may have possibly shed a tear too =)
Now it’s time to get married! This old door was from Lauren’s grandfather’s house
Lookin’ good Bry!

Some special touches
Double trouble
The new family!
Gorgeous group
Since Lauren and Bryan are high school sweethearts, and Bryan’s a teacher, a bus from their town made it’s way to Bittersweet!
This might be my favorite photo ever. The boys’ faces are priceless!
It was simply beautiful in the evening light
A little magic filtering through the trees
There were so many awesome DIY details, including these signs Lauren and Bryan stained and painted. 
I am obsessed with the ladder shelf Lauren’s dad made for their escort cards. If it would have fit in my car I might have tried to bring it home!
These cupcakes looked amazing
Lauren wanted the flowers to loo like they were just brought in from a field. So pretty
Their first dance
Seriously it was such an amazing day, and I’m a little sad it’s over! Love you two and we are so very happy for you. xoxoxo

Married: Keisha + Benjy

Friday I trekked up to the gorgeous Glen Magna Farms to celebrate Keisha and Benjy’s wedding. Talk about a picture perfect June day! The gardens were in bloom, the sun was shining, and it was a perfect evening. Keisha and Benjy decided to have an intimate day with only their closest friends and family, and it was awesome to be a part of it!

Beautiful Keisha
Her father was blown away by his little girl all dressed up
Benjy and his brother getting ready
The garden at Glen Magna is a gorgeous spot for a ceremony.

Jumping the broom!
Pretty, summery details outside on the veranda and back lawn
A little fun with the cake!
This family knows how to have fun – Keisha’s father was one of the most animated  I’ve ever had the chance to photograph!

Married: Nathaniel + Danielle

After a week of cold and rain the sun came out and summer arrived just in time for Daniel and Nathaniel’s wedding. “Peep and Babe” celebrated with all their friends and family amidst much laughter and happiness. It was so much fun to spend the evening with them =)

I LOVED Danielle’s dress – the high neckline and all the lace was so elegant.
Some last minute speech preparations
We did a little first look with Danielle’s father
They had a lovely ceremony at Holy Family Church, which happens to be where I grew up and went to school, and also where my babies were all baptized! 
Mark wasn’t exactly sure what was going on, but he looked awfully cute in his tux
Here comes the bride =)
Over at The Villa we had a beautiful evening for some photos on the golf course
Inside was looking beautiful for their reception
Party time =)
Congratulations to you two – I hope you had so much fun!

Married: Beth + James

Some wedding days go off without a hitch, while others seem to have every possible obstacle thrown in the mix. Given all they had to deal with on their big day Beth and James took it all in stride and never stopped smiling. Their love story covers long distance relationships, deployments, college, grad school, and plenty of life changes, but through it all they stuck together and you can see they are meant for each other. Congratulations to a wonderful couple!


The day dawned grey, cold and rainy, but inside sparkled with Beth’s pretty details.

I joined the girls for a cab ride from the hotel to the venue to finish getting ready. 5 minutes into the drive, our cab started smoking and overheating! We jumped out and hid under a random overhang while we waited for another car to pick us up. Many brides would be sobbing by now but Beth just laughed it off!
Things were a little more peaceful at the venue where James was working on his finishing touches.
When the girls finally arrived safe and sound it was a mad dash to get dressed and ready for Beth’s two first looks – one with her dad and one with her husband to be.
They were so happy to see each other =)
Time to get married
A good looking group!
We braved the freezing wind and rain for a couple minutes
The reception was full of beautiful touches
So happy! xoxo
