BRONSON + ALISHA | WEDDING

This was the wedding of the year. The one we had been looking forward to since Bronson + Alisha reached out to us over a year prior to their wedding day. Alisha was like a little sister to me [Cassie] back in the day. So you can imagine the real emotions I had as we served her + husband-to-be.  And I'd be lying if I say I didn't cry that day - because a) Alisha looked incredibly breathtaking + beautiful + b) Bronson's reaction to his bride EVERY time he saw her was as if he was seeing her for the first time. Like the things you see in movies but BETTER. I can't make this stuff up! You're love for God, for others + for one another was so palpable...it's how we know your marriage is going to be a great one! You two are gems.  A man + woman striving to honor Christ in your marriage + that's a huge part of what made September 30th so memorable. :) xxoo

JUSTIN + KAYLA | WEDDING

Justin and Kayla have become dear friends over the past year.  Justin and Zac (Cassie's husband) went to college together and Kayla and Cassie hit it off right away! When Kayla and Justin were approaching their one year anniversary, she mentioned she'd love to put on her dress again and take some 1 year celebration photos! AND of course, we are all about celebrating EVERYTHING and ANYTHING! So we set a date, arranged for a stunning floral bouquet (S/O out Studio C Floral) and found a perfect location to take the shots. Give us ALL the bright, bold and beautiful flowers, a stunning 'bride' and dapper 'groom' and watch the magic happen. :) Enjoy a few of our favorites from this past weekend and also give some sweet anniversary wishes as they relive their wedding day! Hugs!

LAUREN + MARK | ENGAGEMENT

So many feelings right now! 

Lauren + Mark were on the ball with choosing some PRIME locations to shoot their engagement photos.  [Sidebar: I love, Love, LOVE when couples select a location or two or three that reflect who they are.] So when Lauren said, "let's meet here", I was ALL about it! So much to see in this session :) 

Is it not obvious how much he cherishes her? Awwwww...It is totally evident! I know their July wedding will be nothing short of incredible! Can't wait for next year, Lauren + Mark! You two are the greatest! 

KATHRYN + SAGE | WEDDING

Kathryn+ Sage asked us to be a part of their day + though it was a short in time, it was not short in love + detail! This Monday afternoon wedding highlighted soft greens, peaches + coral colors which made me swoon...and the florals were so gorgeous and beautifully put together that any bride would have been proud to carry them down the aisle.  The wedding was filled with sweet, thought out + memorable touches, yummy punch + local honey for the guests to bring home.  My favorite moment will always be when this stunning bride walked through the double doors of this historical building + Sage saw his wife-to-be for the first time that day.  TEARS.  It truly was 'the best day ever'! Thanks for allowing us to celebrate your sweet love for one another! 

KRISTEN + DAN | ENGAGEMENT

An early Saturday morning drive through East Texas was well worth it to spend time with these two! Engagements at their family's lakehouse property will be a forever memory for them...and for me! Congrats Kristen + Dan on your engagement! Words can not express how beautiful your friendship is with one another + I can't wait to see how you continue to serve each other in your marriage! November 5th, come quickly! 

CHANTEL + JOSH | WEDDING

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'..... ;)
