justin and hannah met in the community living project that they both called home. he had his eye on “the new girl”, but she was otherwise attached, so he exercised patience and waited until the right time to pursue her. and once it was right, it was right. they had lots in common and worked hard to create a solid foundation in their relationship, dating for a couple of years before making the decision to be married.
the way they speak to each other is very tender – they are both gentle and don’t love having all the attention focused on them (though you wouldn’t have known that from the PDA show they put on at the reception ;). i have a soft spot in my heart for these two and know they have an incredible future ahead of them.

josue & lauren. there was something about this day that felt so much more about two families uniting than just two people. despite being spread over three countries, they came together, melding traditions and sharing spiritual heritage, supporting this beautiful couple whose bond is unmistakable. the warmth in the room was tangible. it was such a beautiful celebration of a pair who has committed to love each other in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer (probably poorer), until death parts them. now booking for select dates in 2015. give me a shout!

this one was a labor of love for me. pierre and carmen are two of the gentlest and kindest humans i have ever met. our paths first crossed a couple of years ago and every interaction i’ve had with them since, as individuals and as a couple, has been laced with a grace and peace which is hard to explain in words. this was evidenced on their wedding day as they chose to care for others before themselves (we practically had to force carmen into her dress because she was so busy helping everyone else) and even took the time to write personal notes to each guest, highlighting how their lives had been impacted by them. this day was a true celebration of where they’ve come from and where they’re headed.
p.s. for a glimpse back at the early days of this sweet couple, see if you can spot them as guests at beth and mark’s wedding, which was in the same venue 2 years ago!

a blind date gone terribly, terribly…right. 20 minutes in and sean was sold on this red headed sommelier, vowing that this would be the last first date he ever went on.
and what a way to celebrate, on sean’s parents’ beautiful estate, friends and family coming in from far and wide on a beautifully warm (ahem, hot) afternoon. freckles, cowboy boots, great wine, comfort food, a champagne sabre, cute kids and a rocking party into the night all under a big white tent.
thanks to all the wonderful vendors: venue: private estate | tent: classic party rentals | bouquets: thrifty foods morgan crossing | cupcakes: thrifty foods and tracycakes | dj: beyond sound | caterer: drew cooks | second shooter: lexa bergen

he was a masters student from california, she a local girl making a switch from nursing school to do a semester at regent. it started at orientation…they checked each other out, he asked her on a date, they talked for an hour and that was that.

these two are a funny pair, bonded together by a love of brown shoes and inappropriate jokes, they are clearly meant to be together. their engagement was short, their wedding small, but their love is big. a glimpse into their delightful day…

this wedding was a little bittersweet (for me) because it’s the third and final wedding i will get to attend and photograph for this family who is very dear to my heart. i am so honored to have been a part of so many big and beautiful moments in this family’s history and david & kristina’s day was no exception.
kristina’s mom has always wanted to see one of her children married in the darling chapel down the road from their house and with kristina, her wish came true. and since david has been enthralled by the magic of flight from a very young age, it only made sense that their reception would be held at the airport and their entrance to the party would be made in a plane flown by his grandfather.
kristina prepared almost all of the sweet little flight themed details single-handedly, from the map paper airplanes to the baggage claim seating chart to the chevron table runners. the vintage planes hanging from the ceiling of the museum were the perfect backdrop.
mans family, i love you all! thanks for inviting me into your lives.

these guys sure know how to keep things interesting…both graduating from university a mere month before the wedding while planning a move across the country for bethany to pursue a masters degree. so it’s no wonder they wanted to keep the wedding comfortable and relaxed, which they certainly did. it was a gorgeous day, overlooking the river, surrounded by their dearests – just as they imagined.
