Isabella + Luke – An Intimate Wedding in Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Isabella emailed me in August – the day after Luke proposed. They knew they were in love and they knew they wanted to get married ASAP.

Everything else would get figured out along the way. I already knew we’d be great together.

We found a Sunday evening I was available. They found a venue they loved. And on October 4, in front of their closest friends and family, Isabella + Luke became husband and wife. Isabella slipped into her perfect dress as I was getting there, then she walked barefoot down the aisle to Luke. Their vows were honest + some of the most beautiful I’ve heard. Her dad officiated. They washed each others’ feet and walked back up that aisle as The Christophers. It rained the rest of the evening, but once everyone was inside that perfect little barn, nothing else mattered. They ate, they danced, and spent the evening with only the people they love most.

I could spend every Sunday this way.

Kiva + CJ – An Intimate Lake Erie Wedding

This year’s seen quite a few pivots – cancelled + delayed sports seasons, virtual church services, and so much home cooking. The wedding industry is certainly no exception.

Although the perfect location for Kiva + CJ’s wedding never changed, their guest list did. So on the fourth of July, in her parents’ backyard, Kiva married her love with only the closest of family members as witnesses. Somehow my name was lucky enough to end up on that list.

CJ’s son took photos right alongside me (the only competition I’ll always accept), their neighbors watched from a distance, and confetti fell as Kiva + CJ finally became husband + wife.

Those after ceremony, blissful newlywed moments are one of those times life just stands still. These are the moments they’ll think back on for the rest of their lives. With only the gentle waves crashing as our soundtrack, we took these photos.

I’ll never forget this day.
