Zimmerwald Estate Wedding: Brooklyn + Darin

There are so many wonderful things I could say about this day and this couple.  Brooklyn and Darin’s Zimmerwald Estate wedding was truly a fairytale and they have such a precious love.

It was a gorgeous day in June and the decor, colors, and style could not have been more perfect for this setting!  The mountain views paired with touches of dusty rose and greenery were magazine worthy, and Brooklyn’s lace bodice ball gown made her look like a princess!

This sweet couple values their marriage, family, and friends above all else.  During the ceremony, the officiant spoke of Darin’s grandfather – his hero and the person he looked up to most.  When the rings were exchanged, Brooklyn placed the wedding band of Darin’s grandfather on his finger and we all began to tear up.  What an incredible way to honor a loved one!

It was such a dream to be a part of this special day!  Enjoy some of my favorites from the day and join me in congratulating the newlyweds!
