…Let me tell you, you could see it plain as day on their faces just how happy they were to be there. We ended the night dancing in the rain, and it was all worth the 6+ hour drive to and from this beautiful place so close to home.
…Like seriously…EPIC STYLING. I’m so happy to have been apart of this unreal day, and I’m soooo excited to be sharing it with you all today!!! Thank you to all the amazing vendors that played a part in creating all this beautiful magic, and thank you to Matt & Courtney for having me there to capture it all!!!!
…Now it was Betsy’s turn, even though Shawna had no idea it was coming, nor did she think Betsy would end up getting her a diamond ring. But she did. Not only that, the ring was her grandpas wedding ring melted down, who is no longer here with us. The day was amazing with these two that ended by the fire, where we ate like 50 smores, and it was the best thing everrrrr.
…The sun shining down on us, we had the most amazing time petting Burrito (the donkey), walking with the peacocks, dancing by the pool, playing with shadows, drinking, and dancing the night away. I was beyond excited to be invited to Mexico to capture the two of them celebrate years and years of love and friendship surrounded by their closest friends and family.
…And when I finally met up with them in Big Sur to capture their engagement session, it felt as though I had been catching up with long lost friends. I’m not kiddinggggg hahah we all got along SO well together. I was so excited running all over these beautiful green and yellow hill sides once we just pulled over on some random road.
…God was truly the center of this special day in the PNW, and Hannah and Ryan made sure of that. I cried during their vows, because you could truly see just how much these two have been praying for each other, and waiting for each other.
…Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE SIMPLE PROPOSALS. But before I stuck my head full of ideas into places it shouldn’t be, I asked him if he would like any wine, or a blanket laid out for the two of them to celebrate afterwards. We talked a little bit more, and then a little more, and then a little more, before I heard the magic words from this groom to be: “Kayla, I trust whatever you think will look great, I know it will!”.
…They light up every room they walk into, and strive to put a smile on everyones face. During their reception, they made sure to greet and hug EVERY guest that walked through the buffett as they handed out plates.
…And when I finally got there, it was way better than I imagined. Not because of the late nights, the views, the historical monuments or even because of the street pizza and pretzels. Nope, NYC was amazing because of these two sweet souls. Jillian and I instantly clicked.
…They first met me at my house, and hopped in my car and off to the ocean we went!! On the way there we talked about how they met during spring break and one year later they got married!!!! AHHH <3 Isn’t that so so sweet?!
…it was at least $1000 worth of items were stolen, including their bikes and Austin’s one year present for Andrea. Most girls would have flipped, but I remember Andrea saying she was just so happy that they were both safe, and that she didn’t need anything from Austin to know that he loved her SO MUCH.
…Sarah and Derek are probably like the sweetest people I’ve ever come to know, but they’re also just super chill and goofy love birds!!! Derek was telling me how he really wants to get a bearded dragon lizard. Okayyyyy so you guys live in Hawaii, you’re both super cute, AND you’ll have a pet lizard!??
