I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.
I’m so excited to share my first wedding of 2017 with you!!
Stephen was a groomsman from a past wedding, so I was ecstatic when Emma contacted me about shooting their wedding! You guys, I have never had so much impatience about a wedding day getting here. I could. Not. WAIT. for their day!!!
Fun fact for you- I had three couples at this wedding! Past, present, and future Darling Brides! It’s the most wonderful and humbling blessing when I know that people are so happy with their experience that they want others to experience it too. What an amazing job I have!!
Stephen and Emma are literally the cutest people on the face of this earth. They’re so easy to photograph, and I’m not entirely sure they weren’t super models in a past life. They worked hard on all their wedding plans, and it definitely came together beautifully!
The ceremony was held in their gorgeous church and the reception at Station 67 (you’re welcome, guys, for giving you the suggestion 🙂 ) Up until the very morning of the wedding day, there was an 80% chance of rain. When I woke up that day and checked my weather app, I wanted to leap for joy! It went from an 80% chance down to 0% literally overnight! This must be what heaven feels like for wedding photographers.
I laughed all day long (especially during the Father of the Groom’s speech), cried during the best man’s speech (that was a first), and sobbed during the father daughter first look (as usual.) It was the best way to start off my wedding season!
Stephen and Emma, I can not even express to you how amazing it was to document your day! I wish you all the happiness in the world!!
