Despite a little rain, Jessica and Anthony managed to make their Ivey Spencer wedding day shine with joy. An overcast sky did little to dampen the happiness of this beautiful couple, and all the gloomy clouds did was make Jessica and her beautiful bridesmaids stand out even more!

In the morning, Jessica prepared for her big day alongside her best girlfriends, in a gorgeous, grand room with an amazing terrace. The ladies sipped mimosas in lovely silk robes, shared laughter, and helped Jessica get into her beautiful, lacy gown to prepare for one of the biggest moments of her life. The maids slipped into sweet, soft pink dresses, accented by pink and white bouquets.

Meanwhile, Anthony and his men suited up on the lower level of the same building! It took some care to ensure the boys weren’t getting a pre-wedding peek at the girls above! The men took their look to the next level, with black suits accented with shimmering silver ties (a black tie for Anthony, of course!)

Though the ceremony was meant to be held outside under the gazebo, the rain forced our party inside the ballroom, which was just as beautiful, and much dryer! This cute couple couldn’t stop smiling at each other as Jess headed down the aisle to meet her love and join together in matrimony! Their happiness was contagious and soon, the entire room was all smiles and grins as this twosome said their vows.

Once the rain halted we were able to snap some outside shots afterward, off the terrace of the gorgeous building. The red brick provided an amazing backdrop for the wedding party. Jess and Anthony simply oozed happiness as we walked the grounds and enjoyed the gorgeous greenery after the rain had stopped, leaving everything dewy and perfect.

We headed to the reception afterwards, where the dreamy, pink, cloud-like atmosphere surrounded the couple and their friends and family in pure love. Their cake was adorable, and even featured the couple’s love for their dog.

Congratulations, Jessica and Anthony! We wish you all the best in the future!

    As the sun went down on Apple Land Station, I captured the excitement of engaged duo Kaitlyn and Phil. This absolutely adorable couple came prepared for a scenic picnic, and the weather and surroundings did not disappoint. As the sunlight dappled the grass, this picturesque pair strolled the grounds, sneaking kisses and enjoying lots of laughs.

    Clearly made for each other, this couple knows how to have fun, and you can see how much they love each other from their dazzling smiles! A flower crown and floral dress turned Kaitlyn into a woodland princess, and made these images even more magical. The way Phil looks at his wife-to-be is nothing short of pure, true love, and their intimacy and closeness is conveyed in even the most casual images.

    A champagne toast proved to be a bit messy but fun and engaging, and as the sun set, the pair strolled hand in hand, laughing, talking, and no doubt, dreaming about their life together as man and wife. We ended the day in a glorious field that made for an amazing backdrop, and as the sun went down on our shoot and the day drew to a close, we celebrated love and laughter with this precious pair who can’t wait to become man and wife.

    Kaitlyn and Phil will be married at Bellamere Winery in August 2017. Congratulations, you two! I wish you a world of happiness, love, and joy.

      What could be more radiant than a gorgeous, glowing mother-to-be? Kim and Derek have so much to celebrate, including their one-year anniversary as well as the impending birth of their first child! Having been there for this charming couple on the day of their wedding, I could not have been more thrilled to capture an even more momentous occasion!

      On a beautiful May afternoon, we headed to Fire Rock Golf Club, where Kim and Derek held their nuptials. Talk about a sentimental shoot! Derek is also the head chef at the club, so this location holds a very special place in the couple’s heart. Now returning as man and wife and parents-to-be, we were excited to capture this new beginning in the same spot where they took their vows!

      The sun streamed through the trees as I captured Kim looking absolutely blissful as she cradled her beautiful belly. We walked across a picturesque bridge, and the breeze was just the right temperature, cool enough to keep the heat at bay but not too chilly, resulting in a mild day that was just right.

      There is clearly a lot of love between this pair, and as we walked through the greenery with the stunning landscape in the background, Derek and Kim could not stop smiling at each other, no doubt daydreaming about their amazing child and how the next chapter in their lives would go!

      Intimate, warm, and happy, this perfect pair are sure to make great parents, and we are thrilled to report that one week after these photos were taken, Kim gave birth to a healthy son!!!

      Congratulations, you two! I am over the moon at your new addition and wish you all the happiness and love in the world!

        26An overcast day couldn’t do anything to dampen Shannon and Devin’s spirits. This beautiful couple brightened up a gloomy day with a cozy engagement session at their family farm, which will be where they have their nuptials.

        As the pair enjoyed the grounds around the barn, I captured some sweet shots of this fun couple warming up with a glass of whiskey while they toasted the day they met, pledging to love each other even during football season, and enjoying the gorgeous gray sky behind them.

        Shannon is a natural planner, so of course, we had plenty to talk about in regards to their upcoming wedding! She made this shoot special with the addition of fun props, including bottled beer, a football inscribed with an important message, and a blanket to lounge on.

        Clad in casual denim, Shannon and Devin’s smiles add sunshine to these fun-loving photos no matter what the weather! With a background that included a gorgeous vintage barn with a rock wall, oversized fir trees, and plenty of rocks, this chic, informal shoot really allows you to see how in love this pair really is!

        Congratulations, you two! I can’t wait to be back for your big day!
