Logan & John | Married

"Family is very important to both bride and groom" was one of the responses Logan gave in her final wedding form.  From the encouragement and support I witnessed throughout the day I'd say that Logan & John are just as important to their family as their family is to them ;)  The ceremony was filled with funny stories, smiles, tears, and a beautiful prayers.  The reception overflowed with chatter and laughter.  Logan & John made special effort to visit guests in all three dining areas.  Signature drinks, natural greenery with gorgeous florals, classic navy suits, one of my favorite wedding dresses of all time, and even a visit from their pup Daisy!!  Everywhere I turned I could see that this couple was loved and loved in return.  It was a pleasure to spend a summer evening with this them and I'm honored they chose me to capture their day ;)

Elizabeth & Drew | Married

In the days leading up to their wedding day it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained.  That day the rain stopped. The fog took it's time lifting from the mountains and the sun didn't pop out until the reception, but the rain stopped for long enough for Elizabeth and Drew to be married!  No matter that it started again during the reception, or that the dance floor was a mud pit, or that everyone took turns leaving the tent under cover of umbrellas!!  No matter because they were married and now have a perfect story to tell!!  I love this couple, I love their families, I love that I've photographed both of Drew's siblings weddings.  I just love their love ;)

Melissa & Eric | Married

All weddings are special, but my heart especially loves the ones that are focused on the people rather than the things.  When the couple wants to make sure their day honors God, makes memories, and touches the guests.  That was one thing that Melissa & Eric made very clear to me the first time we met, and I pretty sure they achieved their goal.  I don't think there was a guest Melissa didn't talk to, Eric made sure family and friends were comfortable, and the dance floor was filled with laughter and smiles all night long!

BreeAnn & Bradley | Married

When they first met, their budding relationship was long distance, so finding a midway meeting point was important!!  BreeAnn & Brad settled on the State Park not far from Hot Springs and since that's where it all began, they returned to choose the quaint Inn at Gristmill Square for their wedding day.  The morning started with everyone getting dressed and ready at the Inn and then cars were loaded and everyone traveled to Ingall's Airport for the ceremony with the most beautiful views!!  Following their exchange of rings and vows, BreeAnn & Brad took off ( literally!) in a small airplane for a ride over the mountains to take in the fall color!!  ..........

Emily & Ryan | Married

Although Ryan & Emily's official ceremony was a small and private affair, they couldn't pass up the opportunity to celebrate their marriage and new family with their friends and family ;)  So on a perfect fall day, under falling leaves and warm sun, they promised to continue to honor their wedding vows.  Then they danced and ate and danced some more, until darkness fell and sparklers glowed.  It was simple and beautiful and perfect ;)
