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!

Allison & Nate {married}

From the very beginning we knew this wedding would be a very big deal. We knew it would be surrounded with joyful friends and compassionate family. We knew that the details of the day would be exquisite, the music festive, the palate delectable, and the ambiance enchanting. What we DIDN’T know was even more appealing than what we did. Like how Allison was glowing when she stepped out of the limo and on cloud nine the entire day, or how when Allison would see her dad for the first time that day they would both shed tears of joy, or that when Allison’s parents would escort her down the aisle Nate would gaze at her with barely a breath whisper “Wow.”. Sometimes it’s the things you never expected that leave you astonished and with a smile from ear to ear and with memories that will last a lifetime. It was a day that wedding magazines and blogs are written for, an example of elegance, tenderness, and devotion. Enjoy Allison and Nate’s Wedding Day!!!!

Chelsey & Derek {Wedding Day}

Some couples have a love that everyone sees. That is so vibrant, that has such a spark that it can’t be missed. Chelsey & Derek have that kind of love. He adores her with every part of his soul. When he looks at her, when he kisses the very tip of her nose, when he grabs her and tells her he loves her for no reason at all. The way she respects him, is loyal to him, the way she can’t wait to grow old with him by her side. This is visible by just being around this couple. They are dynamic and cheerful by themselves, but together they have something magical. And their wedding day was polished, and radiant just like them! Enjoy Chelsey & Derek’s wedding day!!!
