Once upon a time, I met Nick. And on Nick’s birthday, I met his best friend Nate. <3

Nick’s family is full of wonderful, amazing people. His grandparents greet you like long lost friends, his mom has treated me like one of her own since the day we met. His sister is a professional acrobat. His cousin looks like he just stepped off the pages of GQ, but is also one of the kindest people you’ll meet. You get the picture!

When Nick’s Uncle Ron asked us to photograph his wedding, we jumped at the chance! Uncle Ron and Carol were married at Pawley’s Island in South Carolina, where this was the view from the porch of their beach house. Their wedding was so incredibly intimate and emotional, with maybe only 10 people in attendance. We even got to watch Ron and his friends build the arbor! Everything was just perfect.

Dan not only escorted Carol down the aisle, but helped her pick out that incredible dress.

Once upon a time, my college roommate got married in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee. It was amazing and magical and one of my top 3 all time favorite weddings… And then I never blogged it. This was two years ago, you guys. *facepalm.*

You can click here for a refresher on their engagement session which included, but wasn’t limited to: Hay bail jumping, horse kisses, and sunset photos like this one. <3

But today’s the day- I refuse to let 2015 arrive without sharing this wedding goodness with you, friend! Sarah and Zach were married at Sarah’s parents’ home outside of Franklin and man, oh man, do I wish I could photograph farm weddings every day. <3

First off- The details!

Tell me this isn’t the most perfect ceremony setting you’ve ever seen in your life. <3

I love when brides get ready in their family homes. That painting of little Sarah on the left? Perfection.

I will (someday) do an entire blog post about this photo! Sarah is the most beautiful, easy-going person you can imagine and just told her girls to find a gray dress they felt pretty in. I looooooove how that turned out and how different everyone looked- No bride approval needed, no complaining bridesmaids, and such a cool modern take on a bridal party. Take notes, brides! *Swoooooon!*

He ran up during the group photos and Sarah bent down without us asking to say hello and it was magical. :)

This is my first Floridian fall in 5 years, and luckily, I’ve been taking it better than I thought I would. Yes, I get a lump in my throat at the mere glimpse of the intro to Gilmore Girls, but I’m not huddled in a corner crying about missing my leaves, you know? That being said, I’ve been counting down the days to Kellie’s Memphis wedding since the day we sold our home! It came at the perfect time, and Nate and I got to see the last wave of colored leaves during our visit before heading home to the land of palm trees.

Kellie and I bonded in our Spanish I class – I was the nerdy, Disney-obsessed senior who chose Spanish I over sitting in a study hall, and Kellie was the cool freshman. I was so surprised when she contacted us to photograph her wedding and excited to catch up with my favorite chica, who now teaches at our alma mater. How crazy is life?!

This is Danielle and Patrick. They were married 3+ years ago at The Polynesian’s Sunset Pointe. :)

Today, they’re a few years into the “happily ever after” part of “and they lived happily ever after,” and the biggest source of their happiness these days? Rhys. (Pronounced “Reese.”)

Berea, Ohio Family Session

Nate and I were able to meet them for a home session when we flew in for Ashley and Brian’s Pennsylvania wedding. The best part about having so many past couples spread out across the country is being able to meet up for these sessions and see what their life is like now.

In case I didn’t make it abundantly clear, we were so so so so so so so so so so happy to have been given the chance to see leaves changing this year! I was worried I’d miss it! (By the way, that photo on the left? Favorite!)

At the end of the session, Patrick gave three restaurant options for us to all go out to dinner. We didn’t let him get past option #1- Melt- Which is known for it’s grilled cheese sandwiches. Done and done! <3 Danielle and Patrick, thank y’all for the amazing time and it was so fun to catch up again. Now come visit us in Orlando soon!! :)
