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! 

AMY + MICHAEL | ENGAGEMENT

Have you ever clicked with someone so fast that you suddenly knew you were practically the same person?!  Well, this happened to Amy and I.  We instantly bonded over everything wedding, coordinating and planning a year or so ago. When she met Michael and introduced him to our small group, there were no questions that they were meant for one another.  I was honored to be apart of their proposal and engagement. Thanks for allowing us to celebrate this special season in your life! I'm glad we are fast friends and we can share in this time as you prepare for marriage. 

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'..... ;) 

BRITTANY + CASEY | WEDDING

A year ago these love birds flew to the Dominican for their beach, destination wedding.  Their closest friends and family joined to witness the two exchange vows ocean side.  Twelve months later, Brittany threw on her lace dress (that she had shortened so it could be worn again) and Casey put on his linen suit to celebrate their one year anniversary milestone! As we were snapping pictures, I asked them to relive the day.  Their example of marriage is one to be noted -- with Christ as center they have continuous joy, service and mutual respect and unconditional love for one another. They are such dear friends to us and we are thrilled to walk along side of them and encourage them as they give their second year of marriage a shot!
