Once upon a time, on a stifling mid-August day, a charming young man and a beautiful young lady pledged their love and made a life long commitment of marriage to one another [can you tell I've been watching too much TV?]

Anyway... I love love LOVEEEE weddings.  And when I get to be behind the scenes capturing all the couples memorable moments, details of their day and 'firsts' as husband and wife, I'm elated!  This wedding was especially close to my heart because it was in Minnesota, set in the greenest of the green Minnetonka orchards, the apples just beginning to make their gorgeous, red debut! And let me tell you: everything about Josh + Chantel's day was beautiful, from the worshipful marriage ceremony to the tasty Famous Dave's BBQ to the intentionality of the farmhouse tables and burlap, everything was picture perfect [everyone swoon here].  And though it was the second hottest summer day in MN [yes, this current Texas resident thought it was almost unbearable], J + C had the biggest smiles, the best attitude and the most joyous hearts and love for one another.  Congratulations you two! Honored to be a part of your day and in the words of the groom, this wedding gets 'a hundred percent' in my book! 

And they lived 'apply-ever after'..... ;)
