Last Friday I blogged the first half of Jen and Taylor’s wedding day. Everything about their day was so gorgeous and there are so many great images that I was having such a hard time choosing for both posts! So, I decided I’d have to just do a highlight. So, here are a handful of my favorites from the reception:)Taylor surprised Jen and all of their wedding guests with fireworks!!! It was absolutely gorgeous! And it was kind of fun keeping a secret all day:)


So here are a few images from the reception:)

When Kelly with Sweet Pea Events called me to see if I was available for an April 13th wedding, she said that she thought I would love this couple because they are super laid back and sweet and a lot of fun. I didn’t need any further convincing, sign me up! So, when I met with Jen and Taylor and Taylor’s mom Sandy, I saw exactly what Kelly was talking about and I knew I’d be lucky to work with these guys. Throughout the entire path to their wedding, these guys have been awesome and I could not be happier for them! Their wedding day turned out PERFECT! Gorgeous sun, warm air, a sweet breeze off of the lake, everything was absolutely stunning and these two were so happy to be marrying each other! When I saw Taylor for the first time that day, he had a huge grin and when I asked him how he felt he said he felt great and was ready to get married! Love that!

Taylor proposed to Jen in Carmel, California, so their inspiration for their wedding was the city where they were engaged. Everything was stunning and an incredible group of people made it happen. Sweet Pea Events, Out of the Garden, Southern Fried Paper, Astounding Sounds, Legacy Cakes and Paradise Cove. I hope I’m not leaving anyone out!!

Now, I had a really hard time narrowing this down, so look for a second post with the rest of the day next Wednesday:)Enjoy!

I love how beautiful a girl looks in her wedding dress, that dreamy look she has on her face, the excitement for what is to come and all the build up from a lifetime of dreaming up a big day. Jackie was absolutely stunning in her wedding gown and was glowing. Aldredge House was a perfect backdrop for such a lovely bride! I am so happy to have been a part of every step of this with Jackie and Erik from engagement photos to their wedding day! Here’s a little snippet from Jackie’s bridal session.:)

I am so excited to share these photos from Jackie and Erik’s wedding! Everything was so beautiful and went so perfectly and it was HARD to choose my favorites for this! There really were just so many beautiful, fun moments that I had to really think hard about which ones to share so that I could actually get a post up instead of having way too many photos to even make a post! So, these are my FAVORITES from the day! I started the day off with Jackie, her mom and sister at Blushington, they had their hair done at Drybar before that. I LOVED Blushington! That place is amazing and I want them to come decorate my house. That is all. Even more amazing though, was how beautiful Jackie was and how laid back and relaxed! They had a 30% chance for rain on their outdoor wedding day, but she did not seem ruffled at all and was ready to go for it, and I’m so glad they did because the outdoor ceremony garden at The Aldredge House is just gorgeous and was perfect! Also, a special thanks to Cocktails and Caviar for gorgeous flowers and décor and Frosted Art Bakery for a beautiful cake!

I have loved working with Jackie and Erik and their families. I had a great time at their wedding and I am so so happy they chose me for their big day!

I first met Jeniece about 2 and half years ago through a group that my husband belonged to. She was so sweet and welcoming when I met her and when I found out she was engaged I knew I would be lucky to work with her! When I met Colby for their engagement session, he was just as sweet and kind as Jeniece. I could not ask for better clients!!

Colby and Jeniece share a love of wine, he even proposed to her with a wine bottle.:)So, we spent a little bit of their session in a wine bar, no I did not have a glass, I’m a light weight and wanted their photos to be straight! These guys had so much fun together! They laugh a lot together. I had so much fun with them and can’t wait for their wedding day!
