Married: Jen + Denille

Jen + Denille had a picture perfect evening to celebrate with their closest family and friends! From the perfectly styled decor to the cotton candy sunset, the setting and the brides were simply stunning. SO happy for these two and honored to share some favorites from their lovely wedding!

Married: Chris + Kristi

Last weekend I got to spend time with some special people coming together as one big family. I first “met” Kristi over social media, when I heard that she and Chris were attempting to pull together their wedding in just a couple of weeks so that Kristi’s father, whose health was failing, would be able to walk her down the aisle. It was touching to watch people come together to make this day happen, and though it was not without road bumps, Kristi’s dad walked her down the aisle and danced with her at their reception. For two families that have gone through many challenges what an amazing celebration bringing them all together! Here is a peek at their emotional wedding day <3

This little peanut was just the cutest thing!
Chris and Kristi have some seriously gorgeous children!
Chris’s parents were so sweet
The kids did a great job!

Married: Dan + Alice

Dan and Alice are just the nicest people you could ever want to meet! They celebrated their wedding on a stormy but beautiful day at Hyland Orchard. They made friends, family, and fun the main focus of their day and the relaxed atmosphere made every moment enjoyable! Here are some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding <3

Dan and Alice had a first look where they exchanged cards – it was so sweet!
I love watching Guests’ reactions, especially family members. Clearly so much love for these two from their parents
I just love the way the wind played with Alice’s veil <3
I know people always want sunshine and blue skies but I am a huge fan of moody clouds and stormy skies =)
These rings are just amazing and so unique
Parent dances always make me tear up!
Probably the happiest cake cutting ever!
Hyland does an amazing job with the outdoor entertainment. Any time s’mores are involved I’m there!

 

It was a perfect summer day for this awesome couple! Congratulations Dan and Alice!!

Engaged: Tom + Caitlin

There is nothing better than getting to be a part of a friend’s special moments – I love getting to spend the time with people I care about and documenting their lives! Caitlin and I met freshman year of high school and have kept up for the last 20 years (ummmm we are old!) and I could not be more excited for her to marry Tom next year! We spent an evening at the local family beach – they even braved mud and weeds for me! Congratulations Tom and Caitlin!! xo

Married: Megan + Grant

If I could sum up Megan and Grant’s wedding day in one word it would be HAPPY. Everywhere we looked people were smiling and relaxed and the joy was contagious! You could see personal touches in every aspect of the day. Thank you to Rory for coming along and helping me out!

No one could say it more perfectly than Megan’s father did in the closing sentences of his speech, when he quoted the bride: “‘Dad, he makes me laugh everyday.’ Isn’t that what it’s all about?”

Enjoy some favorites from the beautiful, happy wedding of two wonderful people <3

The Frog Prince =)
Megan and Grant wrote letters to each other and when I was going through images I noticed they were reading at almost the exactly the same time. I love seeing them side by side.

While I spent time with the ladies getting ready, my colleague Rory was with the guys in their cabin.
Grant’s wedding gift from Megan – cufflinks made from a Predators puck!
I love seeing the reactions during first looks!
Could you ask for anything better?
Picture perfect families
Married, and oh so happy about it!
Some cocktail hour fun
Some heartfelt words
Yes I agree little man, it looked delicious. How awesome is the cake topper? It was 3D printed from their engagement photos!
Party time!
Huge congratulations to Megan and Grant! Thank you so much for having me part of your day <3 You are just amazing together!
