Katharine and Matthew

  The leaves are turning and reminding me of this beautiful day spent with such an awesome couple, Katharine and Matthew.  Her loveliness and his charm, the lace and honest eyes... it was just one of those weddings where pretty much everything was golden and right.  It's pumpkin season again, and truth be told, any season feels right to tell this story from beginning to end.   Set in and on the grounds of Mustard Seed Gardens, with the decor and floral arrangements by
Royal Creations and music by Event One Djs.

Katelin and Dustin

Ahhh... a breath of fresh air, a color filled evening at Avon Gardens, and a pair of sweethearts promising the rest of their lives together.  I loved everything about this wedding, but above all, the laughter and throw your head back kind of smiles.  Dustin and Katelin planned a simple evening letting their romance and treasured relationships with others shine the brightest. Even the little roses were dancing in delight, and the big beautiful sun played with the trees in that oh so perfect way.  A luscious green setting followed by a beautiful blue night ~ I honestly could photograph this day all over again.  Such a pleasure!  Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Cruz, may all the seeds you plant in life inspire as much happiness as you do in one another.

Aly and Eli

   What a great day, and even better night!  City lights ended our evening with Aly and Eli, preceded by the one of a kind Scottish Rite ballroom scene and a dance party where I think nearly everyone in attendance dipped their toe in at some point.  Aly and Eli enjoyed their first dance as their guests looked over the balcony from the cocktail hour, and as you can see, the moment was theirs completely.  I love the excitement these two showed one another in saying "I do" and acknowledging the many special moments of their day. I could feel the anticipation in our email exchanges leading up to the big day, and it was so fun to see it come to life as the day began.  From pearls to pumps, classic details were perfect with the grand beauty of the Scottish Rite, and just look at those amazing flowers by Meg Catharine.  In love!   Aly looked so comfortable and happy, and I know Eli could see this the moment he watched her enter the theater.  Friendship and romance, it was all there, all day.  Thank you for sharing this with us Aly and Eli, I know your lives together will be equally as rich in laughter and love.
