Guilford Yacht Club Wedding | Meggie + Brian

What a beautiful day we had for Meggie and Brian’s Guildford Yacht Club wedding last August. They really had the perfect day which usually you think in mid August it would be super hot. We got so lucky and had a gorgeous breeze day. I was so excited when they told me about this quiet little park over looking the water way across from the venue. We decided the first look and portraits had to take place there. The guys showed up in the biggest truck form the marina. We all had a good laugh when they pulled up and all the guys jumped out of the back of the pickup in suits. I must say Meggie was one of the calmest brides to date. I think me favorite part of the day was jumping on the boat and taking a quick spin with them out on the water. I mean its not everyday your couple arrives to their wedding ceremony by boat. We had a lot of laughs and even a few tears throughout the day. The reception was no small feet filled with exciting dances including an irish dance by the grooms relatives. We ate delicious food and yummy cake (Everyone knows I shoot weddings for the cake). They ended the night under the sparkler lined sidewalk with their friends and family. A little birdie told me this sweet couple is expecting a new little one this summer and I could not be more excited for them to move into this next chapter together. Congratulations to you Meggie and Brian on the new bundle of joy.

Awesome Vendors who made the day great!

Buttonwood Farms Surprise Proposal | Conor & Becca

When I first got the call from Conor with his plan to pop the question to Becca and he wanted to do it on the first day of Buttonwood Farms Sunflower for Wishes. I was over the moon with excitement. I mean who doesn't want to be a part of something like this. Sharing this very special time with Becca and Conor was so much fun. You can just see how much love they have for one another. Before leaving them I felt like I was an old friend. The best and most favorite part of our portrait session was when they decided they had to take a photo in front of the cows because Becca is going to be a large bread vet. Well little did we know that one of the cows was going to become the focus in the background and photo bomb them. It was so great and perfect timing. So earlier in the week Conor and I made the perfect plan on google maps. lol Best thing ever when your planning something from several states away. Conor told me he would be flying in the night before the big proposal so I would go there a few days before and check out the lay of the land. We were able to walk the route he would eventually take Becca on that Saturday morning. It was a gorgeous day. The two of them walking through the path enjoying all the beautiful sunflowers which by the way is Becca's favorite and then right before they reached the end of the walking path he turned her and dropped to one knee. Instantly Becca burst into tears with excitement. It was simply magical and I couldn't hold back my tears watching it all unfold before my eyes. He picked out the perfect ring for his sweet bride to be and she LOVES it. Thank you again Conor for choosing me to create these beautiful life long memories for you and Becca to cherish for years to come.

Charlestown Rhode Island wedding | Lynn + Steve

Have you ever wondered how long it takes to find the love of your life? Well Lynn & Steve found each other in a bar one night on a whim. If you sit with these two and their family for 5 minutes you will see how perfect they are for one another. I felt the love in that living room during their intimate ceremony at their house. I was so excited to learn that Lynn is a bee keeper and how they incorporated a honey tasting during the ceremony. I've never seen that done before and it was so great. The officiant was so wonderful and had such an elegant delivery during the ceremony. I think my favorite part was the maid of honor was a granddaughter of the couple. She was so adorable and did such a wonderful job holding those rings and keeping them safe for when the time came to give them to the bride and groom. I am so happy with the way this wedding turned out and hope to do more intimate weddings in the future. Thank you again Lynn & Steve for allowing me to share in such a beautiful and intimate ceremony to start the rest of your lives together. I know you both have a bright future ahead especially now that you will share it with your true love.

Country Outdoor Wedding with a pond | Katie & David

Katie and David chose to have a beautiful rustic wedding at The Retreat at Bradley Pond in Tallahassee Florida. This place was gorgeous! Seriously an amazing venue. The Retreat at Bradley Pond, nestled beneath majestic canopy of oak trees and Spanish moss, and is one of Tallahassee's favorite venues for a wedding. There is so much history there its incredible. There is an unlimited opportunity to take some amazing pictures between the beautiful pond with a small intimate dock to the old country store and Grist Mill that has graced the area since the 1920's. I had a ton of fun getting to know Katie and David. They sure know how to work hard and you can tell they put a lot of work into planning their perfect day. Katie even made every guest their own personalized mason jar to take home. Oh and I can't forget how amazing both their rings look. I am obsessed with them. The couple even took some time out of their day to take a stroll to the country store and ride on the hand made swing. Over all their day was pretty epic. I would highly recommend having a rustic wedding at The Retreat at Bradley Pond! Thanks again to my awesome second shooter Andrea for being there with me. You rocked it girl and I hope we get to shoot another wedding together in the future when I come back to Tallahassee for another wedding.

A Country Farm Wedding with Horses

I want to start by saying Brianne... girl you looked STUNNING!

It was such an honor to have been a part of such a fantastic day. Marc and Brianne were such a joy to work with, so much so that I feel maybe they need to write some sort of guide for future bride and grooms. It was smiles and laughter all day... That is what a wedding day should be!

Listening to the bride and her girls singing beautiful hems upstairs while they were getting ready was just magical. You could hear the beautiful voices all the way outside the farm house. The groom started to tear up with excitement that this special person was about to be his wife!

We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous day. With the fear of thunderstorms before the ceremony began, Brianne was not stressed one bit and had faith the skies would clear and surely they did right as the bride was about to walk down the isle!

None the less we were able to step outside the gorgeous farm house to grab some beautiful portraits with the horses. These two should be models I swear I could have photographed them all evening...

Once again, Thank you so much for having me a part of this special day! You two looked so happy and in love and it truly warmed my heart!
