Hunter + Lauren ~ NOAH's Event Venue Wedding ~ Cranberry Township, PA

Nothing makes wedding photography more fulfilling for me than watching two people who truly love each other joyfully make commitments to remain together forever. This kind of love is not a feeling (those come and go!)...instead it is a decision to be selfless and choose the other before you choose you yourself. I've had the privilege of seeing this in Hunter & Lauren as I've watched their relationship unfold, but it was even more evident on their wedding day. The way that Hunter dotes on Lauren and smiles at her as if she is the only thing in the world worth his time is beautiful (gentlemen...hope you're taking notes!). Lauren is, in turn, flattered (like any girl would be), but she does not consume it...rather, she pours that attention, love, and care out on everyone else. What a great combo they've got going on! 

Hunter & Lauren got married at NOAH's Event Venue in Cranberry Township, PA surrounded by lots of friends and family. This venue was elegant, yet simple and charming. Totally fit the bride & groom. I am so thankful to have been part of such a gorgeous day, celebrating two wonderful humans! So happy for you, Hunter & Lauren...may God lead you as you begin an amazing journey together!

*Special shoutout to my sister Kimberly Veldhuizen, who second shot this wedding with me! She was amazing, per usual. :) 

Nick + Rachel ~ River Edge Bed and Breakfast & Gathering Place Wedding (Lowell, MI)

This wedding is definitely one for the books! I've known Rachel since college and always knew that only someone super special would be good enough to marry her. She found that man in Nick, and the two of them together now make for the most joyful, fun, loving, and solid pair. Their desire to cherish and love one another while founding their marriage on the solid Rock of Christ was so evident in their wedding day. I consider myself so blessed to have been there with everyone to celebrate them and this new journey of their life together. Nick & Rachel, may you two only continue to grow in your love for God, each other, and others as you go through the many peaks and valleys of life as husband and wife! 

Kudos to the amazing vendors from the day: Venue: River Edge Bed and Breakfast & Gathering Place // Florist: Designing Dreams // Wedding Planner: Abigail Fox @ All Buttoned Up Events // Hair & MakeUp: Pomp & Artistry // Ladies PJs: Plum Pretty Sugar // Catering: Flo's // Second Photographer: Elyn Marie

Matt + Paige ~ Stambaugh Auditorium Ohio Wedding

Matt & Paige's wedding was extra special for me because not only do adore both of them as individuals, but I have known them for years and have really grown to appreciate their generous friendship and genuine hearts. They have been together for over 10 years now (!!!!!) and so it was extra exciting to celebrate this day with them...we all knew it would be here someday! Paige is an amazingly talented photographer herself, so I was flattered that she asked me to take photos of her own wedding day. It was not only a beautiful day for the eyes (everything was just stunning) and the taste buds (the food was some of the the most delicious I've had), but it was a beautiful day for celebrating the love and commitment that these two have for each other and how they have blessed each one of us in different ways. I couldn't be more excited for you, Matt & Paige! Many blessings on this new marriage journey!
