*winter wedding* Stephanie & Alex

I love winter weddings!!!!!

Stephanie & Alex had an intimate elopement at Black Canyon Inn… they exchanged vows (that they had written themselves 🙂 ) in the beautiful pavilion!

I had a blast walking around the snow covered property with them hearing about their love story and how they got to this very special day. They were both so much fun and kind… such a blast to work with!

I love the unique vintage touches of Stephanie’s stunning dress, pearls and those awesome sunglasses!

Krystle & Adam’s Rehearsal Dinner AND Wedding Reaveal!!!

Last December I was walking through Target wandering around the Christmas section getting some cards and a few ornaments for my Christmas tree when my phone rang and I saw that it was Krystle’s name that popped up… Since we usually text rather than talk on the phone I figured it must be important. After answering she said ‘GUESS WHAT???’ I don’t recall exactly what I said, but she blurted out that ‘ADAM PROPOSED!!!’

After 11 months of planning the big day had finally just about arrived!!!

We loaded up the cars and headed to the venue for the rehearsal which was of course followed by the rehearsal dinner 🙂

I have known Krystle since 7th grade and over the years we (along with Kasie, her twin and my other bestest friend) have had many discussions about ‘when we grow up….’ they of course changed over the years… One of my favorites was that Kasie was going to become a famous singer and Krystle and I would tag along for the ride and live in Kasie’s mansion that she would get and we would all live happily ever after.. HMM well, to our surprise that did not happen 🙂 However, over the last three years we have each gotten married and created out new dreams of happily ever after…

I couldn’t be happier for Krystle & Adam as they start this new chapter in their lives!!!!!! NOW, bring on the babies!!! 🙂

Here some shots from the rehearsal dinner… They are both surrounded by so many people that truly love and care about them!!

I was able to take a few shots of Krystle and Adam’s first look 🙂 It was such a precious moment and they were both SO excited!

Spencer & Alicia’s Stanley Hotel Wedding

Alicia & Spencer were so much fun to work with! I met them at a bridal fair and was super excited when they asked me photograph their wedding!

They were both so laid back and fun to work with. Alicia was stunning… I love Spencer’s expression as she walked down the aisle!

It’s couples and weddings like this that truly make me appreciative what I do… When the bride and groom and everyone around them is so wrapped up in the moment and the joy of such a special day 🙂

Venue : The Stanley Hotel

Alicia’s shoes were awesome!!! It’s unique details like this that really to add to a wedding.

The Stanley Hotel is a gorgeous venue with so many awesome spots to work with!
