If you’re thinking about a Fall wedding at Iron’s Mill Farmstead?  All I can say is do it.  The cooler weather was awesome.  The grounds and barn are gorgeous!  Revisiting these images are making me excited for my niece’s wedding in Maine next year (Fall + Barn + Maine = omg).  🙂

Ashton & Steve were a whole lot of fun that day!  So much dancing and so much love!  The sparkler exit was a perfect way to end the day.  It was an honor to be a part of all and here are some of my favorite captures!

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.  🙂

As this Summer moves along, I spend most of my days either shooting or editing, but swearing to one day finally be caught up on my blog…lol.  Only that can’t happen unless I actually blog, so here we go!  Another beautiful wedding from last summer!  Brittany and Josh share a beautiful love and had a pretty gorgeous day to go with it.  🙂  Their peacock themed wedding was one I won’t soon forget.

Kaila and Andrew will soon be celebrating the first anniversary of their wedding last summer.  .This is the 2nd time I’ve gotten to work with the Nelko family and I couldn’t have been more honored.  Plus it’s always a treat to get to work with a family, again.  I’ve had such a blast with them both times.

Kaila was the very first person to meet me in my new studio almost 2 1/2 years ago.  I was giving away a gift certificate that day for my open house and she ended up being the winner.  Bonus!  Check out their gorgeous day below.

Happy Anniversary to them!!
