Jenni and John had the most intimate and beautiful wedding. There’s something just different about an elopement, so personal, so special. Being in their presence felt like a true gift. These two are sweet, and kind, and so passionately in love. Photographing their day was truly so much fun for me.

If you’re teetering on whether you want a Winter Wedding or not, I vote YES. I love them!! I mean how dreamy and romantic is this!? Ahhh.

Congrats you two!!

Kelsey + Seth Married 1

Kelsey and Seth – Not enough good things to say! Gosh I just truly loved being a part of their day. I really think my words would do no justice to their wedding. I want you to look at these photos and just feel their love! Kelsey and Seth have a really unique love, and truly incredible friends and family, they are just amazing people and I think it shows so much in their images. You can almost hear the laughter, the tears, the toasts, their words. I felt such an intense amount of love on their day, and it resulted in some of my favorite photos, ever. Oh and P.S. if you didn’t see their Rehearsal Dinner, go back one post. you won’t regret it! Congrats again Kelsey and Seth!! XOX

KelseySethRehearsal 1

Seth and Kelsey’s rehearsal dinner was something out of a dream. The sunset on this night was truly the most gorgeous sky I have ever seen. Have you ever seen something so beautiful you’re literally almost frozen, just in complete and total awe. I had to almost remember I was shooting, it was truly that breathtaking. I was overwhelmed with how gorgeous the entire setting was. The sky, the venue, the couple, all completely beautiful… but their love, the most beautiful.

This weekend was one I will not soon forget. As soon as their family and friends walked into their rehearsal each guest introduced themselves to me, all their family, their bridal party, I felt so welcomed and warm. Getting to know Kelsey and Seth and see their genuine connection was so inspiring. Photographing the events of their wedding was a highlight of my year. And since their wedding Kelsey and all the ladies in her and Seth’s family came to my wreath making event and we got to spend another weekend together! That makes us all officially best friends, right!? Love this couple, their love, and truly just who they are. Enjoy some of my favorite photos!

Amanda and Bryan Married 1

Amanda and Bryan, SO MUCH FUN. They got married in November 2018. It was a cool, crisp Fall day. There was *a little* rain, but nothing we couldn’t handle! I truly feel that the cloud cover just added to the romance of their day. These two are laid back, happy, and just so in love. I fit right into their group and felt like family. I truly love Fall/Winter weddings. I prefer cold over hot, and this day was really just a dream for me to photograph. Have fun scrolling through their wedding, and be sure to look at the awesome vendors at the bottom of this post!
