Addison + Kayla

I can't believe how dang beautiful this wedding is - every detail is gorgeous. From the center pieces to the guest table to the beautiful floral arrangements, everything came together to make it feel like a woodland dreamy world. This is also one of my favorite first looks - Addison is speechless and adorable. This couple is so fun and goofy and sweet and I can honestly say their personalities make this video, I just facilitated it coming together. Thank you so much for letting me capture your beautiful selves.

Stu + Rachel

Oh goodness, for whatever reason it's taken me awhile to get this video finalized -- okay, I know the reasons -- travel, life, sleep, being busy. But every moment I sat down to work on this story, I worked with such a huge smile on my face. This couple is SO FUN! Like SO DAMN FUN! By the end of the night, the photog and I were having drinks with these two dancing next to them on the dance floor. So, yeah, they kind of rule. And on top of that, they are gorgeous and adorably committed to each other -- I mean 7 years and counting! Even after a first look, the look on Stu's face as his bride walked toward him was unlike any I've ever seen. His Lips quivering -- my heart swooning -- all of our eyes tearing up. What an amazing day. Another point to mention, because it does not get explained in the video, is they did a wine box capsule type thing in the ceremony. Stu and Rachel each wrote a letter to each other, and then each of their parents did the same. They put all the letters in this wine box to be opened on their 5th anniversary. UNLESS, they are having a hard time (which occasionally happens in marriage) so hard that it requires opening up the box to remind them of why they entered this road together in the first place. I think that is so wonderful and unique and special and I hope more couples do sweet crap like that. 

The cherry on top, was getting to work alongside great vendors, including the other half of the dream-team Melissa Marshall - because she rocks. And shoutout to my second shooter - Kristen Leach! 

I hope you all enjoy watching as much as I did capturing !

Brady + Christy

I dare you to not cry listening to this groom's poetic vows. They are so dang cute. I'm pretty sure the whole room shed at least one tear listening to Brady and Christy express their love for each other, I know I did. 

They were married on a Saturday morning at Southwind Hills. Complete with a donut tower cake and other brunch must-haves, every detail was perfect. Southwind Hills did a fantastic job on the floral arrangements, check out the arbor !!! It's easy to see how adorable this couple is, young love at its finest! Obviously, they are drop dead gorgeous but they are also two of the absolute sweetest people I've worked with! Bonus, I shot this wedding with Melissa Marshall Photography and I feel like we always pull off beautiful work together!

Shawn + Abbey

Obviously, Shawn and Abbey are two of the most beautiful people ever but they are also some of the most genuinely good-hearted people. Their wedding was gorgeous and not just because it was at the {always stunning} Southwind Hills, but their love just oozes out of them. And yeah, oozes works here. The Enchanted Forest was the perfect place to say "I do" , even with the cicadas singing, the setting was truly a mid-summer's night's dream. So thankful to have captured this day!
