There is something so beautiful about early morning light. And I just love when brides are willing to get up and ready so we can enjoy it. With Kait’s bridals it could not have been more perfect. The light was simply divine! And with the end of summer winding down, there was a crisp air around. I wasn’t quite ready to be chilly, but it makes me excited for all the fun fall things coming up! I was so incredibly in love with Kait’s dress. She had told me how she was going to go with the every popular lace fit and flare, and I am so glad she went with this dress. It was so incredibly beautiful and it fit her like it had been custom made. I loved all the details work and every little element! This location too was absolutely amazing. We barely had to move at all with 360 views all around!

Oh my goodness! I am so excited to be showing off these bridals. As you will remember, Jane and Carter were the winners of the BEST DAY EVER giveaway that I held along with Kale Fitch Films, Jacki Miller Photo + Design, Alex Crabtree Hair and Makeup, Thanksgiving Point, Olivia Nelson, Refined Vintage Events, and Urban Chateau Floral last spring. And can I just say that I can’t imagine a more wonderful, more gracious, and more deserving couple to win. All I have heard from Jane and Carter through their entire wedding process is how much they appreciated all the hard work that everyone had done for them to make everything so beautiful.

I absolutely love this giveaway each year, and I love when such a wonderful couple who are so grateful are the winners! It makes all the hard work well worth it.

The day of the bride & groom session was such a fun and exciting day. These two were so giddy to see each other and it made me so excited to be able to capture the first look of them along with Kale. It was simply perfect. And both of them looked absolutely stunning. One of my favorite moments of the shoot too was when Jane saw her bouquet. She could not have been more happy and more in love with it! It was such a pleasure to be a part of this shoot and I am so excited to be showing them off!

So like I said in her engagement session post, I have been waiting for Elna to get engaged and married for over three years. I knew from the moment I met her that she was just the type of wonderful someone that I had to be a part of her wedding. And it has been like a dream come true. She is the most caring and wonderful person and when you are around her you can’t help but feel happy and excited about life. She has such a quirky personality and there is nothing but a good time to be had when she is around.

Case in point…when Elna and her mom pulled up for her bridal session I was expecting a car, maybe an SUV to accomdate her dress. But no…they pulled up in a full sized U-haul. I couldn’t stop smiling and giggling to myself. It was just the perfect hilarious touch to get our session off to a good start. And every moment of the session after was absolutely perfect. First off, she looked absolutely amazing. I was dying over every detail of her gorgeous dress, her amazing look, the floral, absolutely everything was perfect.

And for those of you who are swooning over her bouquet, let me tell you a funny story. The day of Elna’s bridals her florist had a freezer mishap and all of the floral went bad, so her amazingly talented and quick thinking florist pulled this bouquet together out of florals growing in her own backyard. Can you believe it!!! When she told me the story, I was honestly expecting a pitiful little bouquet, but when she showed it to me I was WOW’ed!!! It was so incredibly perfect and beautiful! And wait until you see the floral from her wedding! Just goes to show, that when you hire true professionals they will let nothing stand in their way of making every detail amazing!

So enjoy the bridals! And while you are at it, make sure to check out all the wonderful vendors who participated…

Its always fun when you find a NEW LOCATION! And even better when you have a great couple along for the ride. These two were absolutely wonderful and we had such a great time at their bridal session. They were complete naturals in front of the camera and I am so excited to show off their beautiful bridals. Hope you enjoy!

This girl. I just love her. She is so wonderful and beautiful and amazing. Being a part of her wedding has been such a wonderful experience. One thing I frequently learn about my brides is that they have had to fight for love. Life isn’t always easy and perfect, and so when they find that perfect love they have been searching for they are so joyful about it and so grateful for it. Its such a wonderful experience to see that in a person’s life. Chelsie was married this past weekend and it was such a wonderful and beautiful day full of so much excitement and appreciation for the beautiful future that lay ahead. I am so happy for her. And so excited to show off her gorgeous bridals!
