Hello, everyone!

We are so excited to share some of our favorite images from Sarah and Jared’s wedding at The Old Post Office in Evansville, IN! These two (and their families and friends!) are just SO much fun! Sarah and Jared were referred to us by one of our past couples (shout out to Jessica & Eric!), so we already knew they were going to be awesome 🙂 Sarah is from Indiana originally, and Jared is from California. They met online while living in California, and had their first date in Napa. Fitting, because they love the NorCal region just about as much as they love each other! They love exploring and hiking around the area, and Jared even proposed at one of their favorite hiking spots along the Sonoma Coast. So awesome!

Their wedding back home in Sarah’s hometown of Evansville was such a sweet celebration! It was so fun to see the families come together. Sarah was especially excited to see everyone come together and have a great time at the reception, which they certainly did! Sarah found her wedding dress while visiting Spain, and I am completely in love with the lace. So gorgeous. And those sparkly bridesmaid dresses–incredible! Scroll down to see just a few (ok, a lot!) of our favorite images from the day!

We are so excited to share some of our favorite images from David and Elizabeth’s Legacy Farms wedding! This is an extra special one for us, because David is my (Jen’s) cousin. So to be celebrating with family while also getting to document all the joy of the day was just so amazing! David and Elizabeth are super laid back, and their wedding was the perfect fit for them. A chill celebration with friends and family in a beautiful setting! They’ve been together for 6 years, and they have such a sweet, easy going manner between them. I especially loved their first look! There was also an unforgettable moment during the ceremony when there came the realization that the rings did not make it to the ceremony! The Legacy Farms team swooped to the rescue and Chris came in with the hand off haha! The best part was everyone still smiling through the unplanned moments–they just make the story better!

On to some of our favorites of the day!

Congratulations, David and Elizabeth!! We are so, so happy for you all, and it’s so fun to see the family growing 🙂 Thank you so much for having us along to document all your celebrations, it was such a joy to be there with you all!

Happy Monday, and happy (early) Independence Day!

Today is Brittney and Nick’s one month-a-versary, so that seems like a pretty good time to share some more of our favorite images from their joy-filled Scarritt Bennett wedding and Houston Station reception! We have had such a great time getting to know Brittney and Nick throughout their wedding planning process. These two are just so sweet together, and are a perfect fit. We love how intentional they were with their planning, and how much care went into every single detail (my personal favorite: their watercolor crest featuring their dog, Owen, and the chapel!). Brittney was just so excited for every little part of the day, and they really did soak in every moment!

Brittney and Nick met in college through mutual friends on spring break, then realized they were both from Clarksville and actually went to rival high schools growing up! From the moment they met they were inseparable. They are the perfect balance for each other, and just have so much fun together! Leading up to the wedding, Brittney couldn’t wait for their first look and to know they day had finally come that they were getting married. And Nick couldn’t wait to be announced into the reception as husband and wife! It was such a beautiful day full of sweet moments and emotions–keep scrolling to see some of our favorites!

Congratulations, Brittney & Nick!! We are so, so happy for you both and had such a wonderful time celebrating with you and documenting all these sweet moments. There was just so much joy in your day, and we loved getting to witness it! We hope you’re loving settling in to married life!

Happy Monday!

Talking with Katie about her wedding day, one phrase that stood out to me that she used was “pure joy.” The way Katie and Art were so excited to see their story come together, for their families to join as one, to celebrate all love, and just to see the joy of the day was so inspiring. The day dawned hot and humid (hello, Nashville!), and gave way later to heavy storms, but “pure joy” was still the perfect way to describe every second! The rain made it perfectly imperfect in the most beautiful way, in the way that only life can be. Staring down a possible forecast of rain for your outdoor wedding can be daunting for any bride, but Katie shared the sweetest story with me about how she came to have peace about whatever would happen and to find the joy in it. I won’t even attempt to re-tell it, but I just love how intentional these two are about their lives!

And that’s pretty much why we love Katie and Art! We had the best time getting to know these two through their wedding planning and their This is Us engagement session in Chicago. They planned an incredibly sweet wedding ceremony at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, followed by a super fun reception at Ruby! There were nods to Art’s Ukrainian heritage, and tons of laughter and love. With so many incredible moments it was pretty much impossible to narrow this down to a reasonable number of images, but here are some of our favorites from the day!

Congratulations, Katie and Art! We are so incredibly happy for you both (and Saidee!!), and were honored to be there to document your wedding celebrations! Thanks to you and your families for being so sweet and welcoming, and such a joy-filled inspiration!

Also thanks to the absolutely incredible team who helped make it all happen! Special shout out to Kelly and her team at Kelly Dellinger Events for being so on it with the rain plan!

Thank you all for stopping by the blog and sharing in the joy! We’ve had an incredible spring and will have more weddings to share as we get caught up during our short summer break! Then more awesomeness coming your way later this summer and fall! If you’re a bride planning your wedding, and you don’t want to have to worry about if your photographers know how to handle if it rains on your wedding day, we’d love to chat with you!

Happy adventuring!
