It was the most popular wedding date of 2011 – 9/10/11. Jessica and Jimmy had been planning it for over a year and hadn’t thought about anything else for months. The days leading up to the wedding Jessica barely slept. She tends to be a bit type A, and gets pretty stressed when she’s trying to make things perfect. Jimmy is the ying to her yang, calming her and steadying her when life gets to be too much. Jessica took on more of the elements of planning than most brides, creating the bouquets, boutonnieres, invitations, programs, and decorations all herself. To say she was overwhelmed would be an understatement. But this was the day she’d be marrying the man of her dreams, and you simply don’t take that lightly! So when the day arrived, there was nothing left to do except make her dreams come true. Enjoy Jessica and Jimmy’s wedding day!

He’ll be the first to admit she’s his soulmate. She’ll be the first to admit they are perfect for one another. She makes him feel important, needed, and that he’s complete. He makes her feel cared for, adored, and like a princess. She’d dreamed of the day where she would find this amazing man to care for her and they would be married outdoors and dance the night away under the stars. And the day was finally here. Enjoy Kerri & Colin’s wedding.
Lindsey & Greg were married on a warm Saturday in late August. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and a gentle breeze swept through the grasses and the trees. It was just as they had hoped for, and it was beautiful. There is nothing more amazing than witnessing a bride walking towards her future, or a groom watching the woman he’ll grow old with as she steps towards him. It’s so simple, yet so much lies under the surface. Memories of what was and what will be, not exactly the beginning, but definitely the start. It’s love. And it is beautiful. Enjoy Lindsey & Greg’s wedding day.
Pre Bridal sessions were a staple of wedding photography in years past. A portrait of the bride would be displayed at the wedding reception and would then adorn a wall in the bride’s family home. Modern day Pre Bridal sessions have often been replaced with Trash the Dress sessions where brides can get down and dirty and get more unique looks without having to worry about ruining their dress. Either way you look at it, any excuse to wear your wedding dress beyond just the day of is a good one. I personally love a pre bridal session as it gives a soon to be bride the opportunity to basically have a trial run before the wedding day. Jessica’s pre bridal helped her fine tune her birdcage veil and figure out some issues with her dress, but the best part was that it put her at ease on her wedding day.
There’s just something about a small town, down home wedding that is quaint and charming. It just feels a little like coming home. Even if you didn’t grown up in a small town, you probably can remember having to be home when the street lights came on, Sunday suppers, church potlucks, and all the comforts of simplicity. Katie & Ray’s wedding day had that feel. The guests were all family – and not just the blood kind. I mean the kind that if you needed a hand remolding your house they’d be there, if you were sick they’d come by with a casserole. The music during the ceremony was provided by guests singing from the hymnals, the appetizers at the reception were made by the bride and her mother, and the theme… was love. Enjoy Katie & Ray’s wedding.
