I love this photo :) when you think about it, there is so much emotion behind what's going on here. She's about to see the person she's going to spend the rest of her life with... and he's about to see her in a wedding dress for the first time. All the months of planning have come down to this one moment in a way :) really thankful I get to do what I do

My bed is calling my name. P.S., been up since 4 am to go to the flower market. I was so tired today, that when I went to the bank to deposit a check, I stood in line for 25 minutes... AT THE WRONG BANK. As in, not even a bank I even bank at..... the lady at the window had to tell me I didn’t belong there. Sooooooo.... good night😴
Switching it up from babies and weddings to FOOD because it’s DINNERTIME! My sous chef (lookin’ at you @patterson_films 😉) is finishing up some butternut squash lasagna because #vegetables, while I nurse a hungry babe. What are you cookin’ up in the kitchen tonight? 🥘👩🏼🍳 . . .
Side note, how much do you LOVE this family style plate at @calistogaranch!?

#traveltuesday takes us back up north to Cobblestone Farms. Those Traverse City sunsets don't disappoint. I can't wait to get back up there next summer!
Destination weddings are exhausting, but oh my stars, they're also gorgeous, stunning, and all the other words I realize I gratuitously overuse, except this time I really, truly mean it.

Aren’t these just the bravest (and the cutest) kids!?
It was snowing up a storm and freezing cold outside but these three managed to look like they were having fun.
Double tap if you’d love to look that cute in a snow suit.
I'm totally on board with the @pantone color of the year, Ultra-Violet. While I am consistently drawn to deep, rich colors, I kept wondering why it seemed soooo familiar. And OH (duh) it's because my #batchelorbride Steph was savvy enough to incorporate it into her own wedding day!⠀
Custom shaped acrylic drink stirrers that doubled as escort cards // The stirrers were placed in gold rimmed champagne flutes (with bubbly of course) and they made for the prettiest Sip & Be Seated display. 🥂

gotta brag on my girl @maddierayphoto for a sec - she second shot for me back in the fall (which was a weird role reversal because i’ve been in front of her camera myself and i admire her work SO much!) and captured some seriously awesome shots throughout the day, like this one. i always recommend a second shooter for my wedding clients because you’ll get the benefit of multiple perspectives throughout your day - one person can only be in so many places, but with two, it’s hard to miss even the tiniest details - more keepsakes in the long run!
so grateful for friends who share their talent, advice, and time 🖤 check out my story for more great stuff Maddie got!
