Big Cedar Outdoor Wedding for Lauren and Mike



Hey everybody!

I have the honor of sharing the first ever outdoor garden wedding at Integrity Hills at Big Cedar with you today! Lauren and Mike chose a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding, and the landscaping at Big Cedar Integrity Hills was nothing short of breathtaking. I already love shooting at Big Cedar (they have the absolutely best and nicest staff), so this weekend was so fun for me.

Erin and her team executed this vision flawlessly - this room was gorgeous...

This sunset was insane! I of course had to bring the couple outside from their reception to be photographed with it.  Wow.

And my favorite, romantic portrait from the day - we off-roaded it a bit for this location

How precious are Lauren and her girls. The most.

But the shy flower girl stole my heart.  What a sweet heart!

This moment. Everything.

The area outside at Integrity Hills was a stunning location for a wedding with an incredible view.

I mean, c'mon.  Dream outdoor wedding.











Then we were back inside for the reception - Boom Kinetic brought the party, and Lauren and Mike brought the sweet moments.

But wait... there's more! Lauren and Mike surprised their guests with a fireworks show!



Near the end of the night, Lauren's siblings surprised her with... well, I'm not sure exactly.  But it was hilarious and fun!




Talk to you soon,

Florence Italy Wedding Details for Emily and Ford



Hey everybody!

Here we go with this dream Italian wedding in Florence at Villa Le Piazzole - Just a warning, it's a mega post.  There are just so many incredible moments and beautiful sites (like the most insane long table I've ever seen)... I just want to share it ALL with y'all!

First up, if you missed the portrait post from yesterday, please scroll down after this post - I really want you to see those! Here's a teaser...



The details from this day were impecabble.


Ford received some gorgeous Fleur de lis cufflinks from his bride, as well as a handwritten letter that choked him up a bit.  So sweet.


Emily is a stylish bride, and I'm pretty obsessed with all her personal details.


Her sister Caroline's halo was pretty to die for as well.


These moments are everything.


Such happiness!


The best table I've ever been a part of, hehehe!


Sometimes when I shoot, I capture a moment that I literally stop and thank God I was in the right place at the right time.  This is one of those moments.


The venue was just as spectacular at night. Villa Le Piazzole is a dream wedding venue, y'all.


The couple helped the pasty chef with the traditional Italian wedding cake.  I love hands-on elements during wedding days.


Bravo!


Probably my favorite shot of the day - one that sums up the happiness and love between Ford and Emily.




Talk to you soon,
