Adam & Monica // Married!

The rain pattered on the roof and splashed into puddles that had quickly formed. The crowd all rose to their feet as the bride emerged from her tent. There was only a brief moment where she had no cover from the rain. With her dad by her side, and a roof now over her head, she began her decent down the aisle. Tears filled everyone’s eyes with joy as the couple met at the end of the aisle. Although the wedding didn’t take place outside by the giant willow as they had originally intended, it didn’t matter. Monica and Adam were getting married. Rain or shine.

Shane & Jourdan // Married!

She stood hand-in-hand with her mother, butterflies filling her stomach. As the curtains pulled back, the bride was revealed to the room for the first time. Shouts and cheers of approval quickly erupted and was soon accompanied by tears of joy. Everyone’s faces gleamed with pure happiness.

Throughout the day, tears were no stranger to this wedding. You can truly feel the love and support that everyone has for Shane and Jourdan. And for good reason! These two are so genuine and kind hearted… and madly in love.

Aaron & Alex // Married

Two years ago, I was there encouraging Alex to go talk to the guy she thought was cute at her 21st birthday. They hit it off instantly.

I was there as their relationship grew. First listening to Alex talk about her crush on Aaron and eventually listening to her talk about him with ease while love glistened out of her every pore. I knew they would get married someday, there was no question about it.

Last December, I was hiding behind my winter coat’s hood as they looped around and around the ice skating rink. As Aaron knelt down on one knee and asked Alex to marry him, I was there taking photos and gleaming with excitement for my friends.

Row6
Three months ago, on their two year anniversary, I was with them yet again as we did their engagement photos.
A few days later, Alex called me, warning me immediately that the call was TOP secret. My heart fluttered with excitement.

They were planning to invite all their friends and family to a backyard wedding shower. Once there, they were going to announce to their guests that they weren’t going to be getting married next year anymore…

They were going to get married right then and there instead.

I  was so honored to share yet another huge step in my friends’ lives with them and capture all the love, surprise, and excitement.
Congrats you two  :)
