It was the perfect fall day for a wedding at the historic 1812 Hitching Post.  Alex and Cody originally planned for an April wedding, but Covid had other plans.  Let me tell you, it was worth the wait!  The yellow farmhouse was the perfect backdrop for such a beautiful couple. Alex spent the afternoon getting […]

I am swooning over Savannah and Nick’s wedding at the Red Barn.  This rustic and chic style venue was perfect for their outdoor wedding.  Surrounded by rolling hills and old oak trees, I was in heaven! The dusty blues, whites, and fresh florals created a classic and romantic vibe.  Savannah’s flowy gown, with a crystal […]

This sweet couple had quite the roller coaster ride with their wedding plans, but finally got their dream wedding at Spinning Leaf!  When I first met Miranda and Jimmy at the local coffee shop to talk about wedding plans, I never imagined we would have to make a new set of plans to work around […]

Jessica and David’s wedding day was so sweet and intimate.  The soft blush and whites created a classic look and every detail reflected their path to one another.

An uncertain wedding journey ended exactly where this sweet couple wanted their special day to be – overlooking the breathtaking scenery at High Vista.
