Cameron and Kelsey are married!! It was a romantic and beautiful summer afternoon as these two said, “I do” under the weeping willow trees at Pond View Farm. Cameron and Kelsey shared a sweet First Look and were full of joy when we were taking their portraits. The slate blue bridesmaid dresses and poppy flowers in the bouquet made for simple and classic details. Kelsey’s mom also hand-cut all of the circular menus on the plates and designed the craft beer sign! It was an amazing day!
Chris and Lindy are MARRIED!! The forecast was calling for rain and they were nervous they would have to have the ceremony inside, but it decided to clear up right before Lindy walked down the aisle! When these two are together they are in their own little world and it is beautiful to watch. They had a morning wedding which meant it was only fitting to have brunch for lunch! The custom omelet and pancake/waffle bar was delicious. It was an amazing wedding!
This is always such a fun post to put together! I love looking back over the year and re-living all the sweet moments at each wedding through the images. I was pregnant this entire wedding season which made things interesting! As my belly grew each month, guests loved to make comments and give advice at each wedding. It was always entertaining!
This was our last wedding of the year and it was one for the books! Thomas and Kristen got married outside on the most beautiful fall September day. They exchanged letters before the Ceremony without seeing each other and it was adorable! After the Ceremony, we took portraits in the golden field and even got a few shots with the owl that was on site that day.
John and Emily are married!! There was a lot of sweet anticipation leading up to this day. These two were so excited to become husband and wife and now they are officially Mr. and Mrs. Winkler! John and Emily tied the knot under the weeping willow trees on a beautiful summer day at Pond View Farm. There were many tears of happiness in the crowd as John and Emily shared their vows! It was a wonderful celebration.
Taylor and Courtney are married!! It was the hottest wedding thus far, yet these two had the best day ever celebrating their love. Taylor and Courtney were so excited to become husband and wife and their ceremony was gorgeous under the weeping willow trees. We took married portraits around the farm and then they danced the night away with their friends and family.
It was a gorgeous summer day on the afternoon that Emily and Brian tied the knot in the beautiful gardens of The Anrtim 1844. All of the white and green floral details went perfectly with their soft and romantic palette. Emily's bridesmaids hadn't seen her in her dress so that was a fun surprise! Brian and Emily then shared a sweet First Look under a tree with green vines wrapped around it. It was the perfect setting!
This was a wedding for the books! Kevin and I traveled to Louisiana to capture Steven and Clare's big day. These two shared a tearful First Look and we had the opportunity to take portraits at the most beautiful farm with Spanish moss! They tied the knot at St. Michael Catholic Church and had a wonderful ceremony. Steven and Clare celebrated with family and friends at their reception at the Grand Marais with an exciting popper exit. It was the perfect day!
Brian and Rose are married!! Our first wedding of the season and it was amazing. These two tied the knot at Grey Rock Mansion under a beautiful gazebo with flowers wrapped around it. Their friends and family were so excited to celebrate with them from countries as far as Korea! It was a wonderful celebration.
What a year! Looking back, 2017 was an incredible year and God provided in big ways. Having Payton, continuing to work with amazing couples, learning how to run a small business and be a mom, and fun trips with Kevin. I am also continuing to realize that there is joy to be found in the day-to-day. Slowing down, being present in each moment.
This is always a fun post to share each year! There is a lot that goes on at each wedding to create the images you see. You will see everything from veil throwing, bumblebees flying around, and blocking the sun with a reflector in this post. This year I even shot a wedding with a broken toe! Nothing can stop me from capturing your beautiful day.
Our last wedding of the year was a windy yet beautiful success! Joe and Emily tied the knot in front of family and friends at The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, New Jersey. It was a chilly and windy day but that didn't stop these two from having an amazing time! I love when my couples take the risk of going outside for portraits when it's not ideal conditions. It is always worth it!
This was the second Wayson wedding I shot this year and it was a dream! Joe and Kristine tied the knot on a beautiful fall afternoon overlooking the water at The Oaks. The weather was gorgeous just like these two! Dusty rose bridesmaid dresses and white and green florals paired perfectly for Joe and Kristine's fall day.
Rob and Alyson are married!! Their nautical theme wedding at Herrington on the Bay paired perfectly with the warm September day. Robbie was emotional a few times before the Ceremony because he was so excited to marry Alyson, including right after their sweet First Look! These two tied the knot (literally!) under the floral archway and palm trees with friends and family around.
Walker's Overlook was the perfect place for Greg & Rebecca to tie the knot. This venue is beautiful with the line of trees, charming house, wooden fence, and open tent reception area. It is gorgeous! It was sentimental to me as well because my sister got married at Walker’s Overlook last summer.
