A joy of mine has been to see dear friends fall in love and walk alongside them as they enter into marriage. Tegan is one of those dear friends and this blog has featured her and her fiancee Reise many times! As her maid of honor, I got to throw her a bridal shower with her other bridesmaids this past weekend and we had so much fun. Tegan is such a gem and we loved spoiling her before her big day which is so so soon! Here are some photos from our tea party
I could not have asked for a better wedding to end the season on! My next wedding isn’t until mid-Dec, so it was a little bittersweet to think about slowing down after an incredible year.
For today’s engagement session, I am having Catherine share a bit of their story!
We had such a good morning this past weekend at Catigny and it was the perfect day for a fall engagement session! These two have hearts of gold and I loved our time together!
When I first met these two, I remember Patti asking me if I was ok with tattoos. Little does she know that I am basically obsessed with tattoos! I think they are beautiful! And when I saw how many she had, I fell in love with her even more. Patti is so radiant and she was just glowing on her big day. Beyond just being a gorgeous couple, these two are so laid back and easy to be around. There were a few mishaps on the wedding day but I love thay it didn’t phase them one bit! Their love for each other is also just the sweetest. You can tell that they geuniely love to just be together and they are in their own little world which I love! Their wedding day fit them so well. It was intimate and they were surrounded by those who mattered most to them It was such an honor to be apart of it!
Everything Patti does is so classy and she just is so put together even between photos! I had to laugh because my in between photos are the worst
The inside of Wilder Mansion was stunning and perfect for some bridal shots!
Their bridal party was tiny! Just one on each side! I love how different this was for me and it was fun to have a small group!
Sisters! What a sweet shot
I love that everybody is crazy dancing around them and these two were literally having their own moment on the dance floor! They are crazy about each other!
Where do I even start with this wedding? I have been looking forward to this ALL YEAR! These two started out as clients and I now can call them friends! Jessica and I have been texting back and forth all year about little details and with every one my excitement grew. When I think of a word that describes them, genuine comes to mind. They are genuine with their love to each other and to others. This day has been a long time coming. They are high school sweethearts and have been through so much over the years. I love to just watching them interact. Jess is quirky and hilarious and they banter back and forth but it is clear that Luke adores every part of her. They go out of their way to make sure people are cared for. For example, they got me the cutest mug and gift card to my favorite coffeeshop and gave it to me the morning of THEIR wedding. And that was just the beginning. Throughout the day I saw how they were so kind to everyone they came in contact with. I am getting emotional just typing this! I just love them both and am so happy that I got to be apart of this day!!!
They got ready at his Mom’s house and it was one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen. I didn’t want to leave!
Luke’s mom had a surprise for Jessica! The venue wasn’t far from where they were getting ready and so she had a horse drawn carriage ride! She looks like a princess!
Next they decided to read their vows to each other for an intimate moment before the ceremony
THAT VEIL!! I have no words
Fun fact, their is one past bride of mine, one present (obviously), and one future bride in here!! Can you guess who?
Their ceremony is held in one of my favorite spots. Blumen is such a beautiful venue!
I loved all of their details!
