Family, Forever! (Part Three)

(continued) … After some pictures, we headed over to Bellecourt Manor … to party! 😉

These amazing young people are Chick-fil-A employees, and they’ve made some special memories together there. I love that they gave their reception a personal touch by including these cute little guys!

Leaving the reception …

… and walking together into a new life.

Congratulations, A. and S.! ❤

Family, Forever! (Part One)

There is nothing sweeter than watching two wonderful people come together to create their own, brand-new family! In April, I was honored to photograph A. and S.’s wedding in Illinois. ❤

One of the things that struck me about this wedding is how much these two young people are loved by their families. Family members from all over the country came to take part in the celebration!

Gorgeous!

Dad and daughter ❤

A New Year, A New Life

January is a time to celebrate new beginnings. I was honored to share in R. and C.’s wedding!

These sweet friends started their lives together surrounded by friends and family, and I loved the feeling of happiness that was all around.

One of my favorite parts was when R. and C. said a prayer together, right before the ceremony. What better way to start a new life? ❤

It was chilly outside, but we braved the cold for a few shots in the park!
