We are just so, so happy to be sharing some of our favorites from Lindsey and Dana’s Bridge Building wedding in Nashville, TN with you today! We have had the best time getting to know these two throughout the wedding process, from planning meetings, to their epic adventure engagement session at Lindsey’s family’s cabin in Wisconsin, to the wedding day. The way they welcomed us and invited us in to documenting these moments for them is such an honor, and we have loved every second of it!

Saturday was rainy, gray, chilly day, but that wasn’t about to slow down any part of the celebration! Lindsey and Dana met in San Diego, where Lindsey was living at the time and Dana was visiting from Nashville. After doing the long distance dating thing for awhile, they ended finally together, and eventually ended up back in Wisconsin, where Lindsey is from. When planning their wedding, they knew it had to be a Nashville destination wedding–to go back to their favorite city and a place that holds so many memories of their early relationship! They were so excited to share their city with all the friends and family who traveled in for the wedding. The Bridge Building, with it’s amazing views of the Nashville skyline was the perfect setting, and everyone partied the night away to Lindsey & Dana’s favorite band from their days in Nashville, The Chris Weaver Band. One of my favorite details was the “cheese cake”–a cake literally made from Wisconsin cheese. Amazing! It was a day full of emotion and excitement, quiet sweetness and lots of laughter. But we’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story:

Family adventure photos

It’s Colorado adventure week on the blog! Tuesday we shared some of our favorites from our adventure session with Cara & Adam in Denver, and today we’re excited to share some favorites from our runners up in our giveaway, the Asarias family! We met up with this sweet family for a mini adventure session at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, which is just an absolutely awe-inspiring place. Kandra’s application caught my eye because of their love of exploring as a family. Jon is in the military, and with his schedule, they haven’t had as much time to explore together as they would like (although hopefully more time soon!).

We had the best time exploring a little bit of Garden of the Gods! These three have such a sweet love for each other, and I love the way Jon so clearly adores Kandra and C. We did a short bit of hiking and soaked in the sun on a gorgeous evening–these photos make me want to go back right now! On to a few of our favorites:

Colorado adventure session

Colorado, with all it’s majestic mountains, holds a special place in our heart. So we are SO excited to share these images from Cara & Adam’s Colorado adventure session with you today! Cara & Adam were the winners of our adventure session giveaway, and it just so happened that our session fell very close to their anniversary–so even more reason to celebrate!

Cara’s application caught my attention because we share the feeling of how the mountains call us to better stories. She wrote about their favorite outdoor adventure: “Anything that puts us in the mountains… where the realization of how small we are compared to the grander stories of the mountains comes to life.” Cara & Adam are also dreamers (and doers) who are currently chasing their dream of starting their own wing sauce company (so freaking awesome!). We had the best time getting to know them as we hiked through the Red Rocks near Denver, taking in all the prehistoric beauty surrounding us. After Red Rocks, we headed to one of their favorite evening hiking (and biking) spots at Green Mountain, which was absolutely incredible! These two are so inspiring, with a beautiful story and a love for adventure. We can’t thank them enough for sharing their story with us, and letting us join them on their adventures!

Lots of laughter, unparalleled joy, rainbows, and dancing the night away in the rain. That pretty much sums up the epic-ness of Whitney and Jesse’s wedding day in Lexington, KY!

I first met Whitney years ago (ok, first I typed out”several” then realized it’s been over TEN years!) at Aldersgate, a church camp in eastern KY where she was my counselor one year, then we were on staff together. I heard her many times speak of her dreams of her future husband, and know that he was a person she prayed for often. To see her with Jesse, and see the way they complement each other and go so well together, is so beautiful! These two have such a heart for the Lord and each other, and it was amazing to be there to celebrate with all their friends and family as they vowed forever.

Their wedding day was so perfectly THEM. Whitney got ready at her parents house, and they were married at her home church in Lexington, Southern Hills. The ceremony was at Champion Trace Golf Club, which was stunning, and although it may sound silly to say, just felt so much like Lexington–like home. A rainbow appeared during dinner, and towards the end of the evening, rain started falling on the dance floor–but it couldn’t stop the party! Everyone stayed and danced in the rain as long as possible, before sending Whitney and Jesse off on their way!
