Denny + Paige: A Love Story

The Garden in the Woods is a magical place and was the perfect backdrop for Denny and Paige's whimsical wedding.

Paige and Denny had so many fun and personal details to their wedding, including incorporating adorable DIY animal themed center pieces.

Paige's highschool ceramics teacher married them and used Dr. Suess's
"The Sneetches" as inspiration and for a really great vow holder (is that a thing?  It is now!).

Check out the beautiful arch way where the ceremony took place!  The groom let us know that they hand threaded the blue garland for hours and hours.  It was worth it!

We love the brides unique hair and stunning sense of style and the groom is looking dapper in his paisley tie!

Of Love and Softball

We love it when our couples incorporate those special little details in their weddings that tell their unique love story.  Patrick and Lindsay did an amazing job of this!  We had the pleasure of shooting both their engagement photos and their wedding and boy did they hit it out of the park (see what we did there?)!

This sweet couple met playing softball. When Patrick proposed to Lindsay, he did it in the spot where they had their first conversation- the softball field parking lot. They even chose that very field as the backdrop for their engagement photos!

So naturally, they carried that theme into their wedding. Check out the amazing softball-signing guest book from their special day.

The details didn't stop there!  How amazing are these custom Nike's the bride had made in honor of her new last name?

And this floral crown she wore was to die for!

We were all heart-eyes for that bursting color combination of sage green, dusty lavender and plum purple.  Just stunning.

Boy were we ever feeling the love with this huge bridal party!  There were four groomsman and 12 bridesmaids, who worked hard at decorating this beautiful day for Patrick and Lindsay.

And who could forget their sweet golden retriever, Sly, who played a special part of their special day.

Thanks to Lindsay and Patrick!  It was an honor to be part of this gorgeous day!

Colten + Michelle

image.jpg

We are so excited to share another love story with you today!  Meet Colten and Michelle! This sweet couple met on a blind date through a mutual friend.  The sparks flew so high on that first date that Colten declared to his matchmaking friend he was going to marry that girl!

image.jpg

After a second date with each of their dogs in tow, Michelle said they were "attached at the hip!"  Soon they moved in together, and rescued their dane-lab mix, Keira.

Colten followed through with his declaration exactly one year after rescuing Keira, who carried the engagement ring to Michelle on her collar. Of course Keira will be the ring bearer at their vineyard wedding this summer.

We had so much fun with them on this dreamy sunset engagement session.  And oh what a romantic, rustic setting!  Congratulations Michelle and Colten! We can't wait to capture your special day!

Reflection

As we sit here on the last day of 2015, we can't help but be filled with joy and gratitude at all that we were able to do this year, and all the weddings we attended and photographed. Each and every wedding was different, special, beautiful, and heart warming. We wanted to take a quick jaunt down memory lane and look back at a few of our favorite moments over the year. Happy New Year!
