Ashley & Mike came all the way from MA for their engagement session!  They loved the look of Gouveia Vineyards so much they couldn’t imagine any other backdrop for the first page in their love story.  We had a gorgeous evening with a few animals friends dropping in to visit during their session!  It was quite a surprise for these city-living lovebirds to be photographed with a horse!  I loved laughing with these two and know their wedding next September at Patriot Place is going to be Epic!

Maris & Troy were wed on a sparking September afternoon at Great River Golf Club.   It’s always fun going to a new venue and Great River didn’t disappoint!  They treated everyone (even us) like royalty and had stunning grounds to compliment their great service!!  I love the color pallet Maris chose, and her ring bearer and flower girl totally stole the show they were so adorable!!  It was a fabulous day to celebrate love and unite two hearts!

Nothing makes me happier than when a Bride’s dream comes straight through to her wedding day!

It felt so authentic to start their life as husband and wife, right where they will spend their days and nights together.  They will sit on the porch with their daughter and gaze out at the spot where they said “I do” and shared their first kiss.  The bride said it best.  “This wasn’t the best day of our lives, but it was the best start to our life as husband and wife…”  Every minute poured out love, for each other, for friends and for their new family.  These are the moments that last.  Congratulations Newlyweds!!!  XOXO
