sarah & phil. the wedding.

you all might remember sarah & phil from their engagement session last fall in an apple orchard. we were so excited for their wedding, that as the image below describes was “a wedding 7 years in the making”. how fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

it was an absolutely BEAUTIFUL spring day for their ceremony which took place in the butterfly gardens at the indianapolis zoo followed by dinner and dancing outside as well!

we had a blast walking around the city getting some FUN shots with their bridal party…and taking advantage of all the great spots in downtown indy.

a big giant “congrats!” to sarah & phil…we wish you guys nothing but love & happiness!

first looks…gosh, we love when couples opt for these. seeing the look on sarah’s face says it all! ๐Ÿ™‚

such a great group of friends sarah has!

this is phil’s niece. she’s about the cutest thing ever.

their ceremony was awesome. they were married by a family friend and it was filled with tons of laughter and some tears. ๐Ÿ™‚

mr. & mrs.

sarah…you’re stunning.

kelsey & jon. (and charles the dog)

so…this fun session turned from just a regular ol’ session into a SURPRISE proposal! fun, right?

jon contacted us and said, “i want to surprise kelsey; she thinks we’re just going to do a lifestyle session…but really i want to propose!”

uh, it took us about .04 seconds to respond “YES!”

we had a blast with them, and their cute dog charles…and we couldn’t be happier for them as they take this fun journey together!

congrats again you guys.

stacey & matt. the wedding.

our first wedding of the 2014 season had us traveling down to the great city of atlanta, georgia. first, let me just say, i now GET why people live in the south…it was the first week of march and it was 73 degrees outside. this girl (pointing back at myself) loves the sun.

ok, so with that out of the way, now onto the wedding!

stacey & matt chose the beautiful callonwolde fine arts center, which is this great mix of gardens, with amazing old architectural details, fantastic floor to ceiling windows, wonderful pieces of art, in the city, but tucked into the woods all at the same time. the whole day was filled with twists on classic details, great friends, family from all over the country and laughter!

they opted for a first look, which also gave us time to walk around and really get a sense of just how lovely the estate was. we really do love it when couple decide to do a first look!

matt’s family is pretty special to us, and we were so honored & excited that he & stacey asked us to document their big day.

lots of love to you…we wish you nothing but love & happiness.

congrats again pam & j.c. we wish you guys nothing but love & happiness!

the callahan family.

it’s safe to say we’re pretty crazy about this family.

this is our fourth time documenting their fun and growing family…last time, this cute little dude was still waiting to make his debut…and now, look at him! he was curious, super smiley and watching his big sister’s every move!

and speaking of his big sister, does she not have the GREATEST smile?! ๐Ÿ™‚

dani & tim…you guys, your family is FUN.

lots of love.
