Colorado Mountain Wedding // Nicole + Josh

Josh + Nicole are just some of the coolest. They chose to get married at the epic Saint Malo's Chapel on the Rock, surrounded by mountains and forrest. You already know we had some crazy Colorado mountain weather, from sunshine, dark clouds and rain. I’m about it!

The love was real. Just look at the all the emotion present from the hugs and the smiles. Also can we take a minute to notice the beautiful flowers? Lace and Lilies are simply the best. Oh yeah and Nicole’s mom MADE their wedding cake. The reception took place at The Sweet Heart Winery, in Loveland Colorado where guests were able to have drinks, play yard games and listen to live music. It was the perfect way to end such a beautiful day.

I’m forever grateful for Josh + Nicole. Thanks for trusting me with your engagement and wedding photos. And for showing me the best Vietnamese food in town.

Lake Michigan Destination Intimate Wedding // Steve + Jessica

Steve + Jessica celebrated their intimate wedding on the shore of Lake Michigan. There’s something special about an intimate wedding. You lose all the formalities and stress that can come with a big crowd and bridal party. The day goes a bit slower and you have time to visit with the handful of friends and family invited. There’s less pressure to be certain places at specific times. You get to breath a little bit more.

The sand served as the ceremony grounds and the lakeside cottage as the getting ready bridal suite. The “parking lot” became the reception spot with tables decorated with glass and candles. Jessica’s, “makeup artists” were her mother and sister. The officiant was Steve’s dad which made for an emotional and beautiful ceremony. Jessica and Steve ended the day with authentic tacos and fireside dances on the beach surrounded by their people. What could be better?
