Jennifer & Nate {Wedding Day}

She wasn’t settling for anything less than butterflies. The kind of love that makes you a little weak in the knees. And when she finally came across her old high school buddy Nate, she just knew. He wanted someone to nurture and care for. To value and cherish. And no one looked at him the way she does. It’s a love so close you barely know where one ends and the other begins. They are molded together and simply made for one another. Her hands were shaking as she walked to him, and tears gently rolled down his cheeks as he read the card she’d taken all morning to write. There was no denying that they had what it takes to make love last forever. And today was the day to do just that. Enjoy Jennifer & Nathan’s wedding day!

10 sixteen

We took a self portrait at the end of the night with our Kodak 4MP camera. We sat on the chair in the bedroom of that log cabin, and while that entire day was a blur – that moment is etched in my soul. I remember feeling that nothing in the world was ever going to shake us. That whatever we wanted, we’d achieve. Ambitious and determined. That THIS was the beginning of something great. When I look at all the little moments within the past 7 years since that instance, I think of achievements, conquering life’s difficulties hand in hand, little gestures to lift one another’s spirits, and the fact that if we took that self portrait today – I’d still feel that this was the beginning of something great.

Kari & David {engaged}

September 7th 2002, she noticed him sitting by the bonfire after homecoming. She initiated a conversation and that very moment changed the rest of their lives.
It started as friends and eventually, he asked her out. They went on a double date to a movie, only… he didn’t pay. It was strike one. Strike 2 would come later in the car when she realized David sings loudly and horribly when he drives. She looked out the window trying her best not to laugh as he belted out song after song. By good fortune – strike 3 never materialized.

Nicole & Zane {Engaged}

They rode the bus together growing up, but the circles they ran in never crossed. She finally took a second look at number 48 while he was out on the football field. She made sure they officially met one another and as fate would have it, #48 gave her a ride home that very night. They were both nervous, so much so he froze when it was time to try to kiss her. She though it was sweet and he was being a gentleman, so she agreed to another date.

Nicole & Eric {Engaged}

She was working at the Knotty Pine and he was a regular customer. That is, a regular customer on the days she was working only. She watched him from the kitchen and would hide and giggle any time he saw her staring at him. She thought he was cute, but didn’t know he thought the same.
