Victoria & I went to high school together many moons ago but didn't really stay in touch afterwards, so I was excited to hear from her about photographing her wedding! Her & Carson met in college. Throughout the course of their relationship, they experienced many ups and downs that only made them stronger. When we sat down to talk about their wedding, we were able to share some common ground about the hard things in life and the impact those things have on relationships. Carson & Victoria stood by each other when life was hard. For this reason, their wedding day was filled with elation and pride as these two committed their lives to each other.

In the morning I met Carson at the coolest loft for his getting ready pictures. Together we bonded over how to tie a bowtie & I got to meet his sweet puppy! Then I met up with Victoria & her girls. One of my favorite moments of any wedding day is seeing the look on the bride's face when she puts her dress on. I loved getting to photograph that moment with Victoria. 

Soon after came one of the most emotional first looks we've ever been a part of. Carson & Victoria were both in tears as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. So much love. As we walked to the local art museum for more pictures, these two couldn't stop smiling at each other. It was a hot day (and I was verrrrry pregnant) but we were able to capture some candid & beautiful interactions between these two. 

Their ceremony was gorgeous! Carson & Victoria wrote each other letters to store in a box, said their vows, took a selfie, & sealed it with a kiss. Then we followed these two to a private room where they shared a quiet, intimate moment (and beers) together. 

At the reception we enjoyed delicious barbecue & gelato & danced the night away!
