These two. I didn’t get a chance to meet Clay and Regina in person until their wedding day, but when Regina saw me she gave me the most wonderful enveloping hug. These two draw people in with their laughter and their care. Weddings usually bring out the best in people. Toasts are always lovely and hilarious and affections run high, but it is clear that Clay and Regina live with this kind of joy, connection and community every day, not just on special occasions. They are lucky in love, with each other and their friends. Their day overflowed with the beauty and warmth that is clearly a part of them through and through.

I have known Chelsea my whole life so this wedding was very special for me. Chelsea has three beautiful boys, and as I watched them get ready with Brock, as he helped them put on the leather belts and suspenders that he handmade for them, I could tell this was already an amazing family. I have been visiting her childhood California home for so many years, but it’s never looked so beautiful as it did this day. Every detail was meaningful, from the Wandering Goat coffee from their favorite Eugene coffee shop, to the backdrop that friends lovingly made for them. Chelsea’s sons and father walked her down the aisle to meet Brock, and they exchanged rings that Brock made for them. Chelsea’s grandfather played the grand piano in the living room for their first dance, as guests typed out well wishes on an old typewriter. We all say weddings are magical, but this one really was, a warm California night on a porch under twinkly lights and so many happy tears for these dear friends. One of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken is the one of Chelsea’s tattoo during her ceremony, it says ‘Everything’ and that is what this day was, it was everything.

I almost fainted when I saw Nicole’s satiny feathered wedding dress, and I knew it was going to be a very good day. Over the top glamor, gold painted succulents, amazing light coming in through floor to ceiling windows, this was everything I could have hoped for. But the very best part was the connection between these two – Nicole practically giggled every time she looked at Fernando, and he was just beaming. I loved this day. Congratulations you two.

Fall is my, Kristen and Derek’s and really most people’s favorite season. This wedding was a chance to show off K+D’s everlasting love and Fall. The day was incredible, from the huge sheaves of wheat decorating the tables, candy corn favors and pheasant feathers in the bouquets, to the epic dance party put on by Mixing Maryland, to Kristen’s knockout look. Watch their first look below, Derek couldn’t stop crying she looked so amazing (special thanks to Caitlyn whose hair and makeup work always makes my job so easy). King’s Contrivance was beautiful and hospitable and they are really great cooks. Kristen’s tattoos made me want to be her. And that ribbon ceremony backdrop! Please everyone have one of those fluttering in the wind! You can’t take a bad photo with those in the background. Enough gushing, I know you are really just here for the photos.
