Jaclyn and Chandler’s wedding, at Spinning Leaf, was the most fun and laid back day! They decided to plan their event a little differently than most, having cocktail hour before the ceremony!

When Ashley reached out to me about a maternity session at Looking Glass Falls, you know I couldn’t refuse!
