“The day will be as perfect as you make it. Things will probably go wrong, and you can’t let that ruin your day. In the end, you’re with the person you want to be with the rest of your life and that’s what matters.”
Chelsea wrote these words herself in an email to me weeks before the wedding. This couldn’t be more true and it is the very best attitude you can have toward your wedding day. Did it rain throughout their day? It sure did. Did it time out perfectly and turn into a blessing in disguise? Yes and yes. You can look at the forecast on your wedding day and dread rain showers or you can look at it as a way to clear out the golf course and have it all to yourself for sunset portraits (and do a happy dance when the sun peeks out for five minutes). The wedding day and everything that can go “wrong” is all about perspective. At the end of every wedding day, all the centerpieces and invitations fade away and you’re left with you and your husband or wife.
Besides perfectly time out rain showers, this wedding was full of good vibes and happy tears all around. A first look with dad, emotional toasts from the best friends, and video shoutouts to mom and dad during the father-daughter and mother-son dances had guests wiping tears all day long. These two have tackled distance and military deployments and deserved every single moment of this beautiful day. Congratulations to you both, Chelsea and Mitch!

You're nestled up by a fire at your family cabin, lakeside, with only the stars to accompany your sweet conversation over hot cocoa and Blue Moon.
Family, friends, and twinkle lights. Windblown hair. Hiking boots for adventurous photography. Cozy moments for just the two of you.
A dirty hem from dancing and making memories...
and smiles you just can't wipe off your faces.
