Let’s make a recipe for an amazing wedding.  For the ingredients, you’ll need an incredible couple who are super fun and are madly in love with each other. Without this ingredient, your whole recipe falls flat.  Then you add really close friends and family who show a lot of emotion.  Next, you need to add an awesome setting. Say…a beautiful open place by a river.  Stir in a large dash of incredible wedding planners, beautiful flowers and other details, delicious food, cool favors and loud music.  Lastly, pour in a heaping full of really fun guests to share the day with.  Put all of these ingredients together, stir them up and you have a meaningful, joyful party with lots of laughter and tears.

That’s what happened on Oct. 27th.  My wonderful clients (now friends) Laura and Dan tied the knot and you’ve never seen anyone so giddy about it (as you’ll see in the photos below).  I seriously had an amazing time documenting this beautiful day.  Yes, the wind was blowing some seriously cold air on everyone but that didn’t deter anyone from having a blast!  We just did everything much closer to each other!:)

Fun side note:  I’m proud to say that the VERY first time Dan saw Laura was in a photo that I took at her best friend Haley’s wedding! So, in a way, I’m responsible for these two love birds coming together! At least that’s what we’ll say, okay?:)

Check out some of my favorites from the day below!


Okay… if there was a reward for cutest ring bearer of the year… Westley would easily win. No contest. This won’t be the last photo you see of him.:)

Heart breaker…

Dan and Laura, thank you so much for having me at your wedding. It was truly an honor be a part of it.  You two are amazing together!
