A Boho DIY Forest Wedding | Bernheim Forest Clermont, KY
This beautiful couple's wedding day was one that Michael and I have been looking forward to all year! The day was a complete dream from start to finish. Erin (the precious bride) is extremely gifted and creative. A few of her wedding creations include the dip dyed table cloths, the dreamcatchers that surrounded the ceremony and reception, the macrame archway that they stood under when committing their lives to each other, and their wedding invitation (she HAND PAINTED this!!). Erin and Alex's day began with a sweet first look in the forest. It was so precious, and the look on Alex's face when he saw her was priceless! He couldn't get over how stunning his bride looked. It's amazing how in that first look moment, it hits that the wedding day has finally arrived! We loved seeing the joy just well up and overwhelm these two as we began their portraits.
After the lovely couple said "I do" they celebrated their new union with a champagne toast and all of their guests joined in. The ceremony and reception took place at Bernheim Forest, the most perfect spot for the bride and groom! Erin's custom made wedding dress came all the way from Australia and was absolutely perfect for her. Jamie from State & Arrow created breathtaking florals that complimented the aesthetic perfectly. Louisville Vegan Kitchen served delicious food and we enjoyed the incredibly talented Misty Mountain String Band during the reception!
Erin + Alex, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to capture your joyous day! The way you two love each other warms our hearts.
A Nautical Lakeside Wedding | Michigan
Logan + Jeff got married last Saturday right on Lake Michigan. It was the most breathtaking view! We absolutely loved traveling up to Michigan to photograph our third wedding for this precious family. Jeff + Logan both have incredibly caring and supportive families. Jeff's dad officiated the ceremony, and the father/daughter and mother/son dances were full of tender emotion and joy.
The day started off with the girls getting ready in a beautiful cabin. I photographed Logan's wedding details on the back deck. Logan + Jeff's first look took place by a beautiful lighthouse! They both LOVE the water, and it was so special for them to see each other as BRIDE and GROOM in their favorite environment!
Logan + Jeff, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to capture these moments for you. We are so grateful that your children and grand children will be able to relive your wedding day through these pictures!
Locust Grove Classic Engagement Shoot | Louisville, KY
We are so blessed to have another couple added in for our 2016 wedding season! When Kristi emailed me, she not only expressed her deep desire and value of beautiful photographs, she also went into great lengths about their relationship! Caleb + Kristi have such a fun relationship, which reminds me a lot about Michael and I! They also love The Office, hiking, ice cream, and Parks & Rec, so basically we are best friends now ;)
We photographed their engagement shoot at Locust Grove, a stunning historic site in Louisville! The grounds were beautiful, and of course, that house!
The best part of capturing their love was seeing how much these two value each other. We are so glad that their relationship is built on honoring the Lord! Kristi + Caleb both go to Southern Seminary, where Michael goes! We are so blessed to witness two believers journey toward marriage! Enjoy your pictures, Kristi + Caleb! :)
