#CoupleOfBreaults (pronounced "bro") is just about my favorite wedding hashtag of all time and a prime example of what makes Brenna & Doug so wonderful. They are seemingly perfectly in sync with one another, quick to laugh, and totally easy to get along with. Their wedding was simple and positively beautiful at the lovely Tupelo Hollow Farm venue, a farm whose laid-back and simple beauty echoes the couple's love. It was my second time shooting there, and I was pumped to be back for such a wonderful day.
What do you get when you know almost the entire wedding party and adore every single one of them? A blog post with over 100 photos. I've known Hilary for, wow, 21 years and Chris for 12. They've been together for over 11 years and and married last month to the absolute joy of everyone who knows them. They are sincere, kind, and so damn hilarious. It just absolutely ruled to be there to witness their happiness and capture their wedding day.

When Sarah & Sean first reached out to be to photograph their wedding, they said, "Our venue's very dark, but it seems to match your style." And when their wedding day arrived, I fell completely in love with their venue. The rain, the wind, a change of ceremony location... none of that mattered. Sarah was so excited to marry Sean, Sean was so excited to marry Sarah, everything was beautiful, and when I asked each to pose serious for a photo, it was difficult to get them to stop smiling. The day was perfectly wonderful, and I was so pumped to be there to capture an awesome couple at one of the coolest venues.

I've known for Steph for 15 years. In the past year, in part due to her reaching out regarding wedding photography, we have reconnected, and I am so happy about it. Chris and she are a perfect match. They are kind, smart, and full of love for their families, their friends, humanity, and one another. Their rustic, mid-April wedding was met with cold winds, harsh sunlight, and a certainty that none of those things would mess with their day. From an orienteering course for their guests to Chris's family hopping in with the wedding band, their wedding was full of fun, full of love, and simply the best way to kick off my 2018 season. Cheers to two of the best!
Emily & Justin assured me I'd love Mexico, and wow. I really did.
But beyond falling in love with the gorgeous landscape, kind people & really cool culture, I got to witness one of the most stunning weddings of all time. 50 of their closest family & friends traveled down for the occasion and made me feel completely welcome. Emily made her dress, her accessories, the dresses of her bridesmaids & both mothers, her husband's suit, all of the favors, and all of the decorations, so there was a cohesive and intimate beauty in every detail.
And... I just think everyone should get to laugh this much on their wedding day. Justin and Emily have that really wonderful, really happy love. It was awesome to be trusted to capture it.
