Angie & Logan: Married

I am completely smitten with Angie and Logan's thoughtful, unique, and romantic wedding day. I loved how they chose for the day to reflect their values. The details and moments of the day were infused with compassion, simplicity, and sincerity - three of my favorite characteristics in a couple and a wedding celebration. I will never forget brushing away tears to photograph the processional, breathing in the sweet pine scent during the ceremony, and escaping barefoot into the quiet woods for a few portraits with the bride and groom. Angie and Logan, thank you for allowing us to capture these memories and for being the kind of people that I am proud to call family and strive to be more like.
I loved the handmade bags and jewelry that Angie gave to her bridesmaids.

Simple yet stunning bridesmaids dresses that can be worn again.

I loved this ceremony spot nestled among the trees.

Angie and Logan donated to clean water projects in honor of their guests and had a "Coins for Clean Water" well that the children enjoyed dropping pennies into.
Taco salad bar, sundae bar, and cupcakes made up a savory and sweet menu.

Jeff & Julie: Married

With another new addition to our family this year, I got behind on my blogging. I'm hoping to get caught up before next wedding season, and today I would like to share some details, moments, and portraits from Jeff and Julie's wedding day. Jeff and Julie's day seemed so familiar to me as I was shooting, and I quickly realized that many of the details, colors, and locations felt similar to my own wedding. Jeff and Julie began the day getting ready at Calvary Baptist Church, and the wedding celebration was held at the Amish Door Banquet Center. We felt so at ease photographing this sweet couple among their kind friends and family members. Jeff and Julie, we are a little more complete for having met you this past year. Your kindness has touched our hearts, and we can't wait to watch your family grow and blossom in the future.

Jeff and Julie's daughter, Olivia, is one of the cutest and funniest little girls I have ever met.

I loved these pictures of her grandparents that Julie attached to her bouquet. One of the prettiest and most sentimental details I have seen.
