Kari & David {married}

I wouldn’t say they are opposites – because the connotation sounds conflicting and disagreeing. I would say that their differences compliment the other perfectly – one picks up where the other leaves off without effort. Both have many similarities as well, both are kind and loving, cherish their families, and both are just plain adorable. They love one another wholeheartedly, and look out for one another in a caring and involved way. Their connection is true and unfaltering, so it was no question why we were so excited when Kari contacted us with the news that she and David were engaged. Having the pleasure of capturing her brother’s wedding a couple years ago, we always enjoy working with familiar people. When those people just happen to be kind to boot – you know it’s going to be a great day! Without disappointment, it was a flawless, laid-back, joyful day – one that you have to check out!! Enjoy Kari & David’s wedding day!!

Nicole & Zane {married}

In one word? Charming. But one word, would never encompass who Nicole and Zane are individually. As a couple, in one word? Adorable. But a million words could never encompass who Nicole and Zane are as a couple! We see plenty of people who are in love, and all of them show that love in different ways. But Nicole and Zane have the love that songs are written about, novels are created for, and movies are based on. It’s one of the best loves I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. They know what they have is special, and are thankful and appreciate for finding something so special. They are truly, wholeheartedly, soul mates. And they have IT. The thing that everyone searches for and prays to find. We love them for nothing more than their authentic-ness, because their fearless open hearts make them so genuine. They inspire us. To be better, to be kinder, and to project the love and happiness that they do. How awesome is it to inspire two people in love, who see love daily, to be better at love??!! But they are just that… in one word – inspiring. But one word would never encompass all that this couple is. And just like their love, their wedding day holds so much more than words – a million words – could ever say. You have to see it and feel it. So enjoy this visual glimpse into one of the most amazing days ever…

Erica & David {married}

The rain was light on the windshield as Erica’s bus slowly made it’s way down the lane to Hidden Lake Winery. She’d gotten ready at her parent’s house and now with bridesmaids in tow, she was ready to start the wedding day. While Erica and her family and friends were being photographed and laughter and joy were filing the air around them, David sat stranded in the middle of a crisis. 100 feet in front of his bus while on the way to the wedding, a horrible car accident occurred in front of their eyes. The entire interstate had to be shut down, helicopters flown in, and as David and his groomsmen helped remove injured children and parents from their cars the only thing he could think of was how badly he needed to get to Erica.

Whitney & Tony {married}

Whitney and Tony are amazing people. There is a million other ways to describe them, but all the words we could use would derive from amazing. So it makes us extra sad that we didn’t get to spend more time with this couple other than their wedding day. If you don’t recognize this couple from their engagement session post it’s because we were not fortunate enough to do one for them, which means we didn’t get to share their love story. But a story this good needs to be shared, so enjoy Whitney & Tony’s wedding day and the story that brought them there! …

Lindsay & Neil {married}

It’s pretty easy to see a couple’s love on their wedding day. The day is all wrapped up in love, it’s all about love. Love of a family, love of friends, love of faith, and the reason you are there – love of a couple. But on the moments in between, the moments when no one is watching, the moments that reflect love the deepest, sometimes you see it and sometimes it’s not as easily found. On Lindsay & Neil’s day the moments in between were hot. As in sweltering 107 degree temperatures outside hot. They took it in stride with smiles on their faces, but by the reception it had all caught up with Lindsay. There were guests to mingle with, cheers to be had, and much partying to do – but Lindsay sat sick in the walk in cooler of the kitchen area. And right by her side, patiently helping her was Neil. He could have mingled, cheers’d, and partied, but instead he provided comfort and strength where it was needed most. U true testament to the couples character, they got through it together, lifted one another up, and ended up enjoying the rest of the night. They still mingled, still cheers’d, still partied – and they did it all together. The theme for the summer may be “hot”, but the theme for the day… was true love. Enjoy Lindsay & Neil’s wedding day!
