Ever wonder how something goes viral on the net?  I had the chance to experience that first hand the day after Desiree & Christian’s beautiful wedding.  🙂  It started out with one of the sweetest couples.  A gorgeous day and tons of amazing details, but one in particular that grabbed everyone’s attention.  Desiree had a very special relationship with her grandfather who had passed on.  In his memory, Desiree had a cut a heart out of one of her grandfather’s shirts and sewn it to her dress.  What made that different…and I what I had never seen before or since…was that she had sewn it on the outside for the world to see – and, boy, did the world see it!  Branden was the DJ that evening and he shared several photos he had taken along with the story behind the heart on Desiree’s dress.  The next day Branden and Ashley (his wife) came for dinner with a story of their own.  The post was going nuts!  Being liked and shared all over…we couldn’t stop checking it all day long (and for days afterward) and the couple was super excited, as well.  But it didn’t stop there, this was a year ago in August and on the anniversary – the post again took off!  And my Facebook page was growing in likes and I couldn’t figure out why!  That’s when I saw Branden’s post being shared, again, with an image that I took of the couple in the comments (300,000+ likes and almost 100,000 shares!).  How crazy that the internet has made the world such a small place.  The story hit the heart of so many people!  Desiree’s grandfather I’m sure is smiling down.  🙂

Here are some of my favs from that day!  It was so beautiful, Desiree & Christian, and I’m so happy to say that I was a part of it.  xoxo

I had worked with Megan’s family a couple of years ago when her sister was married, so I already knew one thing about her and Bryan’s wedding.  The details were going to be amazing!  In my opinion, Megan’s mom should have her own creativity show.  Her details were unbelievable.  To the one of a kind button bouquet she designed for her daughter, all the way down to the cute little flower girl’s feet.  🙂  It was so fun getting to work with the family, again!

Thank you so much, Megan & Bryan for allowing us to capture your day!

Natalie & Bryan both have big personalities, so I knew this was going to be a fun one.  We laughed, we cried, we had a ball.  🙂  All along there were these great details that Natalie created.  She is very artistic and I imagine put many, many hours into her big day.  Every single detail was created by her…from the jewelry to the flowers, the centerpieces, favors and much more and she did an amazing job with it all.

I think this day was the most I've cried at any wedding I've shot. 🙂

Looovvve this group shot...

This was so fun.

One of the groomsmen helps Natalie with her dress. LOL

Awesome shot of the guys.

This looks like an ad for scotch. 🙂

The groom and his new sister-in-law. Ha!

I know I’ve already thanked Natalie & Bryan numerous times, but thank you, again, for such a great day!  David and I were so happy to be a part of it!

This location rocks (seriously, how could Dave Grohl alley not rock?) and so do these two.  Not much more I can say…the images speak for themselves.

Can’t wait for your wedding, Amber & Andy!

 

I know I’m going to jinx myself by saying this, but the weather has been so perfect lately for all of our weddings.  A little warm – yes, but I’ll take heat over rain anyday.  Congratulations to Molly & Tom who were married on one of those gorgeous days this month!  The details from their wedding were absolutely amazing and what a great couple.  We stopped at Niles McKinley Memorial to shoot their formals – awesome location.

Their church was so pretty.

Two of my favorites from the day.

Love this one of the girls' flowers - the little one on the end totally makes it. 🙂

Their cake was great, but...

The Groom's cake totally rocked. It was an exact replica of the bride's family dog. 🙂

I loved all the orange and pink details!

So glad to be a part of your day!  Thank you!
