MELISSA + ERICH

If I didn't think that Melissa was truly one of the sweetest people on earth, I certainly do now! It was plain to see that not just from my perspective, but from those who know her well - she impresses upon people her joy and happiness for everything around her. And she loves Erich - which even if he wasn't a truly amazing human (which he is), that would be enough to say a lot about him! He's serious and doesn't always say much, but when he does - listen. And although "sweet" isn't the first word that comes to mind when I'm looking for descriptors for Erich - that's all I can see when he looks at her. She's everything to him + him to her. It's pretty obvious that they would do anything for one another and in each other they have found their forever. They picked a day in February to get married and it was perfect.

THE BRIDAL PARTY

Lets chat about your bridal party! I know from experience that all brides want their closest friends to have an AMAZING time during their big day and we will make sure that happens! Bridal party portraits should be a ton of FUN!

If you and your groom are sharing a first look, your bridal party will join us right after we capture images of the two of you sharing your moment together. If bridal party portraits are happening after the ceremony, we’ll try to get the group photos done as soon as possible so your bridal party can be free to mingle at cocktail hour if they wish! If there are flower girls and ring bearers involved, we find it easiest to include them in a bridal party group shot right after the ceremony or during bridal portraits taken after the first look.

Be sure your groomsmen arrive with boutonnieres and your bridesmaids arrive with bouquets!

When it comes time to select bridal party attire, my biggest piece of advice would be to shop around. Bridal boutiques will always have options but we have seen bridesmaids wear amazing dresses from everyday stores such as Anthropologie, Aritzia, JCrew, and Nordstrom. Also, if you come across a sale, it can actually be more economical for the guys to buy suits rather than spend the money to rent one just for one day!

It always looks more comfortable and natural when bridesmaids wear a dress that is complimentary to their individual shape. You can still have a cohesive look through colour selection. For the guys, one of the biggest oversights we see if when the shoe/belt colour is left to the individual to decide. It’s best that you choose whether the guys will all wear brown/black or other accents.

LISA + RYAN

At her brother's amazing farmhouse (that looks like it's out of a magazine, BTW and is available for events!), Lisa and Ryan had the most lovely intimate family filled wedding this summer. The company was incredible, the details gorgeous, the food amazing and the summer air - warm and breezy. It was the perfect day - more of these please!

TATIANA + CLAYTON

Talk about couple goals! These two are elegant, sophisticated, compassionate, kind and their smiles could light up the room during a power outage for sure! But they are also funny and quirky, never taking themselves too seriously and always up for time with friends. As high school sweethearts, these two have seen each other through thick and thin and continue to do so with laughter, love and respect for one another. I love their love - it's long, real, trusted and enduring.  It was such an enormous pleasure to have met them, let alone be with them on this long awaited day. We can't wait to see what incredible blessings your love story will bring!
