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. :) 

Alec + Megan ~ Lebanon, PA Wedding

I'm not really sure where to start with this wedding because there was so much that I just LOVED about it! Everyone was checking radars all day, and at one point, it POURED! But during the moments that we needed to be outside, the rain held off! We got to have the ceremony outside in the front of the bride's parent's house, the cocktail hour and first dance on their back patio, pictures in the yard and around the property, and last but not least, we got to end the night with fireworks over the lake in their backyard! Alec & Megan are truly a special couple. Their love and admiration for each other is so genuine and evident and their joy pours out to those around them. I am so blessed to have been able to jump into their lives during this amazing celebration and capture this start to a new journey in their life together! Enjoy this little snippet of their day. 

Jake + Ashlyn ~ The Tangier Ohio Wedding

This wedding holds a special place in my heart because Jake and Ashlyn are two of my (and my husband's!) best friends from college. I know Jake and Ashlyn better individually than as a couple because they didn't start dating until after I graduated and moved away, but seeing them together and now committing themselves to each other forever has been the most beautiful thing. Their wedding day was an amazing celebration of their love, God's grace in bringing them together, and the joy of many friends and family who support them. Thanks for sharing the day with all of us, Jake and Ashlyn! May your marriage be a blessing to you both and many others in the years to come. xoxo
