What a wonderful day. Whitney & Derek’s wedding day was just perfect.  The temperature was not too hot. Everyone was full of joy, anticipation and love.  I was so happy to be there photographing this day for Whitney and her family.  I had the pleasure of photographing Whitney’s senior photos, her cousins and a whole slew of her friends :)  When I looked around at the reception, I saw so many familiar faces that I have photographed either senior photos or family photos over the years it really warmed my heart.  Plus all the moms in this group of girls are just so awesome.  I love them all :)

Also, it was so fun learning that Derek and some of his groomsmen and plenty of his friends at the wedding are Farmhouse boys!  My son is also a farmhouse boy!  It makes me happy to see how close they all are and makes me excited for all the fun future things my son and his fraternity brothers will share :)

Whitney’s dress was stunning!  I was dying to see it on her!  I will start with the dress :)

Hannah & Devin were married outside on a beautiful August day in the beautiful urban courtyard at the Hobbs building.  It was decorated so lovely and wasn’t too hot of a day for everyone to enjoy the outside ceremony.  The day was filled with so many wonderful moments.  Lots of laughing, happy tears, and all out celebrating!  It was such a pleasure working with Hannah’s family again as I took Hannah’s senior photos and have taken their family photos as well!

When I first saw Hannah’s dress, I was literally in awe!  It was so lovely!  I will start with the photo of her dress!martinson-30 Hello Choos!martinson-11 martinson-16 The garter was reversible!  So which side is better?!?!martinson-21 martinson-24 Jolie Artistry was busy with all the pretties!martinson-44 martinson-53 martinson-58 martinson-67This was a beautiful moment between mother and daughter.  Brenda was expressing how she tied Hannah’s very first bow and would be tying her last one as well :)  It really made me thinking of my little lady someday getting married someday.  I might cry again :)
