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!

Mary Ellen & Jordan | Married

We watched the weather all week as the chance of rain varied between 25% and 75%.  I know that rain on a wedding day is good luck, and we can have fun with umbrellas and all, but honestly, if I don't have to jump puddles or change shoes or worry about a muddy dress I'm more than happy ;)  So when we showed up at the Vinton War Memorial to beautiful blue skies and puffy white clouds my heart did a little dance and I got to work!!  Mary Ellen is such a planner and every detail was well thought and simply beautiful!......

Jess & Ben | Married

Sometimes you don't need all the fuss.  All the planning and stress and $$$!!  Sometimes you just want to get married to your best friend.  Sometimes you just do it ;)  Jess & Ben decided last-minute that New Year's Eve would be a great day to get married, and they were right!!  The sun was shining, Downtown Roanoke was quite empty - Market Street was cleared for the evenings festivities - that never happens!!  You can't tell from the photos, but it was freezing!!  Jess was such a trooper in her cute dress and those blue suede shoes ;)  I met them at the courthouse just after their ceremony and we spent about an hour capturing such a special day!!  I loved how well they fit together ;)
