Sometimes that best part of a wedding day coming together is capturing the love and support friends and family have for our couples. Their story started at Hannah’s home with the girls getting ready. Hannah put her dress on in her room which was so incredibly sweet. It was hard not to cry when her dad saw her for the first time. Next we headed to the church. My favorite moment was watching David have a big embrace with Hannah’s father – so much emotion! After the ceremony we headed back to the family farm for photos and for an informal cocktail hour. Another favorite moment was seeing the two drive off in a four wheeler together – you don’t often see that on a wedding day! I loved photographing them walking on the side road together with just a kiss of light on their hair. In the background you can see orange daylilies in bloom and they matched her bouquet. Then we headed to Pebble Creek for their fun reception. I love how they included lanterns on their tables and an ice cream bar! Thank you to everyone who made their day so much fun! Hannah and David we wish you two all the very best!

Q&A with the couple:
What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Most memorable was seeing David standing there and the interaction between my Dad and David. It was so clear that they cared so much and have a great relationship. It was overwhelming tosee the amount of love and support from our family and friends. Another favorite moment of mine was getting ready with my mom. I’m so thankful for her being there and getting to spend all that time with her. She is truly my best friend and it means everything to me that we had so many happy moments together!
Any advice for future couples?
Be sure to take a minute alone and sit back and enjoy it. It goes so so quickly so savor every second you can with your loved ones.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Funniest moment is a hard one! One really funny moment was when my Dad got his snowmobile out to get a picture with David’s friends! They love “Larry the Enticer”! Another amazingly fun moment was the father/daughter dance… We were having so much fun and wanted our guests to have as much fun watching as we did dancing! Songs from the Reception: Our first dance: “You make it look so easy” by Eric Church and Father/daughter dance was a mash up of: “What a wonderful world” by Louie Armstrong, “My house” by Flo Rida, “Timber” by Kesha and Pitbull, “Shake it off” by Taylor Swift, “1000 miles” by Vanessa Carlton, “Call me maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, and “Can’t stop the feeling” by Justin Timberlake.

Spring Debut!

I am so excited to be an aunt again! My younger brother and his wife are expecting a baby boy this April. He will be the first on that side of the family! My family is big into baseball. My brother has been working his way up through the Cardinal farm system as a talented left-handed relief pitcher. This year he made the 40-man roster and recently left for Spring Training in Florida (pitchers and catchers report sooner than the rest of the team to spring training). Baseball and a little newborn – what could be better for a fresh start this Spring? We had the chance to take a few images for their maternity session just before he left. Our studio has wonderful barn wood that reminded me of the old cow barn on my Grandmother’s dairy farm. And my brother who was born and raised in Kentucky – well he is a bit of a country boy. The bat and glove even have my brother’s name on them. Congrats to Dean and Jaq – I couldn’t be more excited to welcome a new teammate into our fun family! Auntie Brenda will be sure to teach him how to play board games when he is older!


Something New Bridal Open House

Last week we were invited to join in a bridal open house. Deanna from Fresh Events created a unique event and asked us to showcase our new bamboo print.

“This open house was a great success! The concept of ‘Something New’ is to allow brides and vendors to do what they aren’t able to do at bridal shows. Brides can see brand new ideas for their wedding but to also experience those elements and how those elements could actually be a part of their special day. Fresh Events is a company that helps couples incorporate personal style and personality into their wedding. That takes connections with a lot of different vendors and a lot of thinking outside the box!” Deanna
