She smiled and simply looked effortlessly stunning on the morning of her wedding day. Relaxed and calm, sweet voices of her best friends, sister and mom filled the air as final touches of lip color was applied. The same guy she drove up to their first date in her beloved lime green Volkswagen Beetle, was about to become her husband… and she just radiated joy.
After five years of dating, and a year long engagement; Kayleigh and Nathan surrounded themselves with their closest friends and family on the perfect Fall day. I was so happy they chose to see each other before the ceremony, because the most beautiful moments were captured before saying I Do. Shortly afterwards, sweet loving vows were promised outside on the patio under a gorgeous gazebo draped with flowers. The entire night was celebrated with toasts, bubbly, laughter, epic dancing, and so much love.
This wedding was an absolute pleasure to photograph. Kayleigh, an artist and designer herself, planned the beautiful day, and not one single detail was over looked. K + N, I wish you two a lifetime of so much more love and laughter than you already have! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites…

Bridesmaids each choose their own lace top, and paired it with these gorgeous blush tulle skirt and heels
Something old. Something new.
The bride gifted her bridesmaids with gorgeous robes, earrings for the day, and personalized bags…
Having a good laugh with your best friends before getting married is a must!
