What a lovely way to start the 2019 wedding season! A wonderful heartfelt “congratulations!” to both Abby & Parker (plus their families!) as these two start their lives together!

You all know that we’re big fans of airy spaces; spaces filled with lots of light and spaces filled with happy love. This venue, The Wilds Weddings & Events, checked-off each and every one of the things we love the most about venues! Abby and Parker picked a little slice of heaven to exchange vows and have a a celebration right at the kickoff of the summer season! We SO enjoyed our time with these two, in a world where chaos and the day to day hustle can sometimes leave human interactions to a minimum, Abby & Parker made us feel like a million bucks. These two were so appreciative, kind and thankful (even sending us a message on their honeymoon telling us so!) and the same goes for their families, friends and wedding guests, they sure do know how to surround themselves with good people!

We also worked with a team of kick-butt wedding pros on this one too…which is always A+ in our book. The wonderful team at The Wilds (a photographers dream to shoot in), the incredibly talented duo behind Artful Blooms (some of the kindest and creative florists we’ve ever seen), and the wickedly talented Woodland & Ivory (shout out to Jeff, videographer extraordinaire, check out Abby & Parker’s highlight reel!). I can’t leave out Christy, from Creative in Bloom who did all of the wonderful signage & calligraphy and Christina, from Sincerely Yours who made sure we were all on time the day of!  Abby and Parker really picked some amazing talent and we’re so thankful we were asked to help document the day for them!

I’m stop my rambling here and leave you with what you’re all here for…PHOTOS! One more giant “thank you” to the bride and groom…thanks for being so wonderfully in love, and for asking us to be a part of such a happy day for you guys…we wish  you so much love and happiness.
