Chris & Jessica's Black Barn Vineyard Wedding

Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!

When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were! 

Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together. 

At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards. 

Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.

And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!  

Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day!  You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together! 

And last but not least, THANK YOUS!

Kevin & Katrina's Adorable Family!

When I met this sweet family they had a little toddler running around them at the park and had recently found out they were expecting twins! They spotted me and my three boys (two being twins) and and instantly we connected! I have been so impressed with how these two have transitioned from a family of three to five so quickly. The immense love and care they give to their little ones is incredible and you can see what a blessing they are to them. 

Kevin and Katrina you truly are doing such a wonderful job of raising your little ones. Your kids are angels! At least they were for pictures (Ha! Ha!). I am so proud to know you and am honored to be your friend, photographer, and fellow twin mom. Here's a few highlights from your session. Enjoy! I hope to see you all again soon! 

Mike & Laura's Newest Addition

Meet the newest little addition to the L family! 

I could not wait to meet this little guy in person and to see how much big sister had grown in a year. Little Miss E just turned two and as busy as she was she still wanted to sit and hold her little brother. So precious! I love this family and love seeing their little ones grow! Congratulations Laura and Mike! You have to major cuties on your hands! 

Family Portrait Session: The U Family

So excited to share some favorites from last Saturday's portrait session with the U family! 

I absolutely love and admire this family so much! The way they love their children is beautiful!  I loved capturing their loving hugs, seeing how patient they were with each other, and watching their little ones love on mommy and daddy! M & T you are doing a wonderful job raising four little ones! Keep doing what you are doing because your kids are SO sweet! It is wonderful taking portraits for your family! Enjoy looking through your new pictures and have a wonderful time making new memories this Memorial Day Weekend!
