mike + melissa // a rustic romance wedding at interlaken inn, connecticut

Mike + Melissa were wed just this past September at the stunning Interlaken Inn in Connecticut. The Inn is an amazing canvas for a wedding day with a bright, open bridal suite to prep in, the loveliest lakeside ceremony site + sweeping tent to enjoy dinner + dancing in. With the sweetest palette of grey, gold, pink + green, Mike + Melissa’s day playful + romantic in every detail. I especially was taken with Melissa’s bridal look + the floral design…just lovely beyond measure. The best thing, in my humble wedding photographer opinion, is that Mike + Melissa were very intentional about creating + preserving time for portraits. You can see below that there is no shortage of portraits of the couple, both formal + candid. These moments, for me, were effortless, intense, joyful + so, so real. I hope you peek through this post + feel inspired be it you are planning your own wedding, are a wedding photographer yourself, in love, anticipating being in love or simply here to see something beautiful.

Cheers!

tim + abigail // an industrial prairie wedding at bluestem hall in urbana, illinois

tim + abigail opened bluestem hall in urbana, illinois + their wedding was the very first nuptials to christen the incredible venue. i am not exaggerating when i say that photographing at bluestem hall was a bucket list item i didn’t know i had + i just cannot wait to return. bluestem hall is a glorious union of rustic + industrial set in beautiful prairie lands that offer the most lovely setting for portraits. tim + abigail have incredible style — a bold color palette, delicate vintage china + autumn splendor set the scene for their october wedding. abigail donned a custom made gown + her top knot + swiss dot wedding veil made my heart flutter all day long. and if i wasn’t already a spoiled rotten wedding photographer, we scored a DOUBLE RAINBOW during evening portraits! HUZZAH!

Cheers,

jordan + haley // a new year's eve wedding at the pearl district building in tulsa, oklahoma

it's nearly 2018, which means it is high time to share jordan + haley's crazy awesome new year's eve wedding from last year!!

i met haley at a wedding photography workshop years ago + was so flattered when she asked me to photograph her wedding!  there is something just amazing + perfect about photographing another photographer's wedding...they just get "it" - from working with you on scheduling all the important moments to creating the best details to capture to trusting you completely when they're in front of your camera.  jordan + haley are SO fun + we had such a great time running around tulsa during their portraits.  haley made all my dreams come true + donned a gold bolero from free people over her wedding gown...she even kept the festive motif going with the most adorable kate spade sneakers.  their venue, the pearl district building, was a dramatic canvas that was so perfect for a new year's eve party.  practically gold-bombing the joint, the atmosphere was everything anyone would ever want for a midnight celebration.  i especially loved that the couple opted to include shades of blue, a color i don't get to see very often in wedding design!  i gave jordan + haley major bonus points for including quotes from LOST, Harry Potter + The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in their tablescapes.

i hope you enjoy this set!

and happy 2018, kids!

scott + tiffany // an edgy, whimsical wedding at the joinery in chicago, illinois

scott + tiffany were married in october at the joinery in chicago, illinois.  i met tiffany a few years ago when she came to one of my wedding photography workshops.  she seriously is one of the coolest + sweetest people i have ever met.  before the wedding day, i received a care package filled with home made cookies (seriously, homegirl makes THE BEST COOKIES EVER!!), a hand-knit head scarf (SHE KNITS!) + some fun beauty treats (she is so kind + thoughtful!).  i was so humbled + honored when she asked me to photographer her wedding day.

the couple's incredible wedding style was out of this world -- i felt like i've been waiting for this wedding my entire career.  i love when a couple embraces who they are + creates a wedding day that is truly their vibe.  tiffany made all my dreams come true in her whimsical, flowing blue skirt + lace topper from chantel lauren.  she was a heartbreaking beautiful bride + so fun to photograph.  watching her + scott together was the sweetest...they are so totally in love + have the best time just hanging out together.  after their adorable first look, we all hopped on a graffiti covered school bus with rock music blaring, + headed to several different locations in chicago for portraits.  the entire day was a blur of happy + rad portraits, an emotional ceremony + the coolest party (with the most delicious tacos for dinner!).  

i'm so excited about scott + tiffany's wedding day + can't wait for you to take a peek! enjoy!
