I looked forward to Shannon & Sam’s wedding day for so long. It wasn’t because it was my last wedding of 2019 or because of the incredible vendor team I was a part of. I was so excited for this day because I couldn’t wait to play a part in Shannon & Sam’s love story. […]

Katrina & Mark’s wedding day was the cherry on top of an incredible stretch of fall weddings! From the moment we arrived, there was a sense of peace embodied by contagious joy—the look on Mark’s face when he saw his bride for the first time says it all. I don’t think I will ever forget […]

The wind may have blown my bride’s veil off of her head as soon as she began her walk down the aisle, but that may have been the only fluke for Andrea & Max’s day. In fact, as I think back on this rural barn wedding, only the words “so much fun” come to mind! […]

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is watching how beautifully my couples are celebrated. It’s such a weightlessly joyful feeling to see family & friends rally around two people in love.

  This morning I was reminded of a simple truth: I don’t have to do what I do, get to do this. I get to share in & serve my couples on one of the happiest days of their lives, I get to use my gifts & abilities to create lifelong memories, & I get the opportunity […]

I recently heard the number one thing people remember about weddings is the temperature—whether they were hot or cold. While this might be true, I have a feeling Megan & Cody’s friends & family will never stop talking about how great it was to be a part of this celebration. The father of the bride […]

        I am struggling to find words to share about how special Jess & Grant’s wedding celebration was last Saturday. It wasn’t the immaculate details that left me captivated nor the perfectly planned wedding day timeline that made the day easy. The thing I will never forget about Jess & Grant’s wedding […]
