Yay!  I am finally blogging Abby & Brad’s wedding!  Sorry for the wait to anyone anxiously awaiting this post :)  The busy season finally caught up to me and my record speedy editing slowed down , lol!  Be prepared to feel happiness and romance with this wedding!  If I had to describe the wedding with one word I think it would be romantic.  The colors, the embraces, the tears, and the laughs.  The reception at the Hobbs was decorated so rustic-elegant, that it just felt romantic.

I was already so excited to be working with Abby after my meeting with her and her mom and it just kept getting better :)  They are just the nicest and so down to earth.  The engagement shoot was super fun, even at 7am!  And when they booked some of my very favorite vendors I was even more excited!   Their wedding was at St. Johns, the reception at The Hobbs, Kelley Flora Ruf was their wedding planner, and Michael Beers Band played the reception!  I knew it would be beautiful and flawless before I ever set foot out the door :)

I will start with Abby’s dress, I don’t think she could have picked a dress that suited her more perfectly :)  And I LOVED her Kate Spade shoes!

I am so excited to share Valerie & Matt’s wedding with everyone!  It was such a wonderful celebration!   And extra fun for me to shoot because Valerie is one of my wedding girls, a group of super fab girls who have super fab weddings 😉  I don’t think there was even one little thing the whole day that didn’t go perfectly!  I will tell the story with the photos along the way :)

When I arrived at the President Hotel to take photos of the girls getting ready, Julee had the dresses all lined up and ready to photograph!  And it was exactly what I wanted :)moeder-62

Valerie has such flawless skin, I am sure her makeup artist (Mandy McKenna) had an easy job :)  And another fun bit of news is that I have already got to photograph the beautiful baby girl pictured here still in Robin’s belly :)moeder-11
