Dreamy. A word I openly overuse when describing wedding days – but I’m over here struggling to find any word that can describe Val + Tanner’s day except DREAMY.  Truly – the venue (The Enchanted Barn is forever one of my favorite venues – I married there myself!), the couple, the details were all incredible. But […]

Today I’m sharing a bit of Ethan and Lexie’s beautiful outdoor wedding at the Willow Pond Bed and Breakfast. Their day wasn’t without a couple challenges (a 100 degree day to work with), but they took it in full stride and created an absolutely perfect day. Every minute of their day spoke to their unique […]

Today I’m sharing a little bit of the behind the scenes of the wedding I helped shoot for Dani Stephenson Weddings. Whenever I get the chance to join her on a wedding day, I know I’m in for an incredible day. Kyler and Brittany’s wedding at the Lageret was just that. Every detail of their […]

“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 […]

As I had previously shared, last summer I chose photographer, Dani Stephenson, to capture my favorite moments of my own rustic wedding. I loved every minute of the planning, that day, and how I can now endlessly relive it through the photos she gifted us. Photography has always tugged at my heartstrings and this past […]
