Jay & Brittany engaged!

Brittany & Jay took me out in a boat on a river for their engagement session! It was a blustery, cloudy fall evening; perfect for wrapping oneself in a blanket and sipping hot chocolate!

We had such a great time! I look forward to shooting their wedding this summer!

Andrew & Tessa married! Part 2

If you haven’t seen Part 1 of Andrew & Tessa’s wedding, you can see it here –> CLICK!!

Now sit back and enjoy part 2!

Andrew & Tessa said their vows in a beautiful outdoor setting behind the farm house, overlooking the pond and fields. And how amazing is that mossy arch!!?

Dancing down the aisle after saying their vows was one of the most joyful occasions and celebration I’ve captured. So so much joy!

During cocktail hour the couple mingled with all their guests. It was a beautiful hour filled with many hugs, much laughter, visiting, kids climbing trees, sitting around the fire, and the continual creaking of the tree swing under the twinkling lights!

I need to share some of these beautiful details from inside the barn! So much thought and preparation went into making the inside of the barn look completely amazing!

Probably my favorite detail was the head table. The rustic barn wood table paired with the old table gifted to them by grandparents! And of course the amazing floral piece hanging over them, and the log centre pieces with a mixture of gorgeous greens and florals!

I’ll just let you see for yourself…

Right before heading in for dinner and dancing, everyone gathered outside the barn as the sun was setting and listened to all the heart warming speeches!

All the best Tessa & Andrew!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful childhood home and now gorgeous wedding venue with us!
