I think it’s so fun to photograph the same venue multiple times because you really get to see how different couples interpret and make it fit to their personality. Josh and Julia’s wedding was my second time out to Beazell Memorial Forest this summer, and I love seeing how they made that gorgeous location their own. I love that they had their ceremony out on the grass with the forest as their background. And of course the barn makes an awesome backdrop for any reception. And Josh and Julia are just the sweetest couple and I can’t express in words how happy I am for the two of them. So here’s to the many beautiful years ahead, thanks for letting me be a part of this day you two!

I hadn’t… not before Lisa and Steve’s BEAUTIFUL wedding there. It was also my first time working with the really fantastic wedding coordinator, Linda Amedo of It’s Your Day. Can I just say, coordinators make weddings so much smoother? I love them. Lisa and Steve’s day was fantastic, a true celebration with laid back charm. They are so fun loving and relaxed… I knew it was going to be a great day when I showed up and the whole Groom party rolled in from a morning of Water skiing at Fern Ridge. Then when 9 piece live dance band arrived it really solidified it (check them out, The Essentials). Oh and I also have to say, Lisa chose lilies as her primary flower and Viesia from Green Gables delivered THE MOST FRAGRANT lilies I had ever encountered. The minute she opened up the van full of them to create (by hand on the spot) the beautiful arbor, it was a rush of perfume through the whole yard, incredible. Everything about the wedding made for an awesome night, however it was rivaled by waking up the next morning and photographing the water-skiing after party! I love my job!

Here’s some more info about the awesome vendors who made this night happen. If any of you blushing brides out there are looking, it was flawless working with them!
