Westwood Country Club Wedding | Amanda and Dustin

Amanda and Dustin’s wedding took place at the Westwoood Country Club last August. Amanda and Dustin met through the dating app and on their first date they went to see  Thor at the movie theater together. Less than a week later, they  followed up that date with dinner. This was the date that the starts truly aligned for them! From that day forward, they were inseparable and spent nearly every day together. Down the road, Dustin planned the best birthday party surprise on his birthday! After a day of bowling with friends and family, Amanda’s friends diverted her to the bathroom to distract her from what Dustin was planning. Meanwhile, their friends and family set up the engagement in order to get an amazing photo op for the moment Amanda said “yes!”

Amanda and Dustin planned a beautiful wedding with the most gorgeous blues! They had an intimate (COVID) wedding with family and friends and this stunning venue was perfect for it. I adore this sweet couple and love that I could celebrate this special day with them. Congratulations Amanda and Dustin!

Commonwealth Club Wedding | Morgan + James

Morgan and James met in college during their freshman year where they lived in the same dorm. They started as friends when they went to a sorority function until the following year when they officially started dating on September 14th! They had an amazing proposal in Pismo Beach at Smugglers Cave. James and Morgan were in the middle of a 10 day road trip in California across more than 12 spots, including San Diego, Malibu Ventura, Big Sur and so many more stunning West Coast locations. They spent 10 days traveling in their rented convertible chasing sunsets. Two strangers happened to also be admiring Smugglers Cave and James asked them to take a picture of them because he was going to propose. The couple caught the whole thing on their phones and a professional camera!

Morgan and James had a beautiful wedding at the Brandermill Church and the Commonwealth Club. The weather was absolutely perfect, every detail of the wedding was stunning, and everyone was such good energy to be around- it made the day go by fast and we had so much fun! I love that they chose to have their ceremony in the same location as her sister’s weddings and where Morgan grew up. That just makes it even more special! Morgan also planned the best surprise with her dad to celebrate the last of 3 of his daughters to get married in less than 2 years (you might remember Melinda and Meg from my past weddings, too!). The reception was amazing- just the right amount of emotional moments along with the biggest and best party ever. They closed out the night with an amazing confetti exit and it will forever be one of my favorites!

Congratulations to my sweet friends Morgan and James, wising you a lifetime of laughter, love, and blessings!

Kingsmill Resort Winter Wedding | Sara + Kyle

Sara and Kyle ended my 2019 wedding season with quite the celebration and it definitely did NOT disappoint! I didn’t have the pleasure of getting to know this sweet couple before the wedding like most of my other bride and grooms, but when we finally hugged each other on wedding day it felt like we knew each other forever! Sara found me on social media forever ago and once she started following me, she said she knew she had to have me photograph her wedding- how amazing is that!? I felt so honored and loved, plus it just made me even more excited for their special day!

These two were so incredibly kind, lovable, silly, fun, and over the moon in love with each other. I couldn’t help but smile putting this blog together because the day was overflowing with joy from the moment I arrived until they danced their booties off at the reception. There were so many cool and special aspects to this wedding day which you’ll see throughout the pictures below- from the stunning details and personal touches, to the saber arch exiting their beautiful catholic ceremony, the soft golden hour portraits on the beach plus romantic sunset shots, the surprise bagpipe entrance into the reception, the bride’s brother singing and playing their first dance song, and I could go on and on about how amazing it was, but you’ll just have to see for yourself!

Congratulations to this wonderful couple! I can’t wait to see them again in 2021 for one of these bridesmaid’s getting married next!!! 🙂
