Congratulations, Kate & Oliver!! I am so thankful for you two. So many sweet times with you both... from the day to met, the beginning of your relationship, your wedding, getting snowed in when I visited y'all, and now... the anticipation of meeting this sweet child of yours! I love you both and getting to photograph these pictures of y'all brought me so much joy!!
TJ & Amy. Your day was perfect. Every detail was magical and I still giggle when I think about Gabe's toast. Your joy is infectious and getting to celebrate alongside you was such a pleasure! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day—it was such an honor. Love you both.
When you're a home-brewer, having your special wedding brew on tap is a must!
May I formally request that there be an apple cider doughnut bar at every wedding? 😍
This was the first time I've seen a bouquet get stuck in the chandelier!

I MIGHT ADD: All proceeds from Mother's Day bookings go towards the adoption of our daughter!
I want to introduce you to a very special little girl! This is our precious daughter, whom we are in process to adopt! It is crazy to think that we didn't know of her existence a month ago... and then four days after an unexpected late-night phone call, she came home.
O sweet girl, we have waited and prayed for you for so long. You were well worth the wait. My heart is so full. Our joy is great.
In our culture, we want instant gratification and answers. We want it, want it now and want it our way. But this isn't how God works. He loves us too much to reward our tantrums and foot-stompings.
As a loving father, he teaches his children to trust him. He teaches his children to have patience and to be thankful in all things. He asks his children to bring their worries to him. He shows his children that he is quick to comfort and support.
He teaches his children contentment—in both the asking and the answer.
In waiting, there is contentment. In hoping, there is still contentment. In infertility, there is contentment. In trusting God with your tender heart and your big dreams, there is rest and contentment.
I don't know what you're waiting and praying for in your life, but I want to encourage you to unfurl your white-knuckled grasp and place your heart's desire in the gentle and loving hands of God.
If I know one thing about God, it is that he is good. He is good and he wants what is best for you—sometimes this looks differently or comes at a different time than we might think is best. He is worthy of your trust and he knows even better than you what you need.
Golly, this post is LONG overdue! As the weather begins to get chillier, I revisited your beautiful January wedding! Seriously, it was the absolute best way to kick off the year! Thank you for letting me celebrate with you both and capture your stunning and precious day!! Best of everything to you!
