As mentioned in their sneak peek, Crystal & Rod’s wedding was the perfect way to end 2012! I apologize in advance for a very LONG post, but I just couldn’t help it. With two extremely creative, talented and in love people, you can’t help but share all of the personal touches added to their “winter wonderland” wedding day that was totally and completely “them”. I’m pretty sure I had a smile on my face the entire day because I felt like I was part of the family. I shot Ashley’s wedding (Crystal’s sister) a few years ago, so it was easy to jump in and reconnect with everyone again. The family not only trusts me enough to shoot two daughters weddings, but also enough to drive the bride & her car to the wedding site at the last minute…that’s a first for me! 🙂 I’ll keep this short since there are SO many photos, but Crystal & Rod…THANK YOU!  Thank you for allowing me to share in such an amazing day! You two are the best clients (now friends) I could have asked for and wish you the very best!! XOXO

Photographer’s note: nearly ALL the details you see in these photos were created by the bride, groom, family & friends. Too many to mention, but just know they all worked so hard to bring this day together!

A big thanks to Meghan Fien for being my 2nd photographer & Laura Mummery for helping out with the photo booth!

The shoes on the left were painted by the groom on their 2-year dating anniversary…and worn by Crystal at the reception.

One of my favorites…


The golden light after the wedding was UN-real! So beautiful!
