once upon a time there were two beautiful sisters whose family was friends with that of two handsome brothers. the oldest sister fell in love with the oldest brother and the four of them stood side by side last year as an amazing wedding took place that would forever unite the families.  and as wonderful as the story would be if it stopped there, imagine how much more incredible it would be if there was more…

her eyes were the first thing that caught his attention but before long, he realized there was much more to love about her than just her sparkling beauty.  so he made up his mind to ask her out.  excited over his interest but knowing the truth, she broke the news to him that her parents wouldn’t let her date until she was 16.  no big deal, he thought…her birthday’s only a month away.   true, but the birthday she was about to celebrate was only her 15th which meant he’d be waiting more than a YEAR for that first date.  but as the old saying goes, anything worth having is worth waiting for, and after eight long years of waiting, last weekend marked the day that she finally became his.

the last time we did this whole wedding thing together, i was the one wearing the big white dress and she was the little beauty who stood beside me with baby’s breath in her hair. we’d spent the previous four years with our lives intimately intertwined: birthday parties, ballet recitals, and countless hours of time in her home. they weren’t just the family i babysat for; it was much deeper and more meaningful than that. they were my home away from home and the family through which i learned to be a wife and a mom.

tears filled my eyes over and over throughout catherine and paul’s wedding day. it was hard to believe that little girl whose hand i held on my own wedding day 14 years ago was standing before me with such radiance and joy; but even more than that, i cried with the peace of knowing how intentional and beautiful her life to paul would be because of how intentionally and beautifully their parents had prepared them for a lifetime of gospel-centered marriage. i PRAISE GOD for you, my sweet friends, and i eagerly wait to see how he will work in and through your lives in the years to come. i love you so dearly!

beauty and brawn…that seems to be a running theme in their relationship. from his on-the-field kickball game proposal with a sparkling diamond to the impromptu football game at their beautiful engagement session, they seem to be experts at treasuring the delightful within the daily. so with anita of AK brides (and a host of other incredible vendors) at the helm, it was wonderfully fitting for them to incorporate those same characteristics into their spectacular wedding day last weekend at woodrow hall and regions field.  congratulations, jenn and chandler, on an amazing first day of marriage!!

their wedding was the perfect blend of old and new, longstanding family tradition and unique ideas. julie found her stunning wedding day ensemble of dress, belt, and veil at the always amazing carriage house weddings, and then hothouse design studio added a twist of family legacy by incorporating the lace and buttons from her grandmother’s wedding gown onto her exquisite bouquet. but thomas’ side of the family had some fantastic additions to the day as well, including having his late grandfather’s saber from the royal british navy flown in from england for the cake cutting. take all of this, add beautiful weather, fabulous vendors, and some of the sweetest families and friends on the planet, and you have the recipe for a perfectly perfect wedding day.  THANK YOU, julie and thomas, for including me in your magical wedding.  it was truly a delight at every turn!

the torrential rain and wind was an unexpected surprise that day, but having worked with several of these incredible people before, i knew that we’d be just fine. we squeezed in shots where we could, and i think the true beauty of the day was evident despite the unpredictable weather. congratulations, dr. and mrs. trim on a wonderful first day of marriage!!!

the only thing more wonderful than getting to meet and work with incredible clients for the first time is getting to reunite and work with them again sometime down the road.  jessica and john were married last summer in one of the most beautiful and emotion-filled weekends of which i’ve ever been a part; therefore, as john’s brother and best man, chase had already spent time in front of my camera lens.  but as i now know, chase would soon be taking center stage as the groom himself when he asked sydney to be his wife.

storyboard053

sydney met me at the door of what’s soon to be the home that they share together with a big smile and an even bigger hug. it was obvious from the first second that i would ADORE working with her. gracious, kind, and loving, her outward beauty is rivaled only by what shines from within. when chase arrived home from work, we spent some time shooting at their house and then finished the evening at chase’s parents’ home (remember jessica’s bridal session?).   i know their wedding is still more than a year away, but i can hardly stand the wait.  check out the photos below…you’ll understand why.  i love these two!!!

i wrote about it after their engagement session and every word of what i’d hoped came true. anna and forrest had an incredibly beautiful wedding thanks to the amazing family and friends they had surrounding them throughout the day (AND thanks to the fabulous team of vendors that they’d assembled to create a day of beauty). it was a tremendous honor to join anna and forrest for such a special day and to have the sweet privilege of documenting the first day of the rest of their lives together. congratulations, my friends!!
