Sara Kate gifted Tanner a new pair of shades AND they had sunglasses as a favor at the reception, so obviously we had to do a few with them on.

Let loose the dogs! Haha. All three of Sara Kate and Tanner’s dogs made an appearance for photos. They could not have been more excited.

Okay, I swear I didn’t doctor the color in this next photo. It really popped this much! It was nutty watching the sky go from cloudy to this crazy shade of blue as the storm clouds rolled in. 2016-11-15_0022

This next face is the “Holy crap we’re about to get married and also I might blow away” face.


This was when the wind really picked up and I knew I had about 30 seconds before it started POURING. Sure enough, I was right. 🙂 2016-11-15_00242016-11-15_0025

So Sara Kate bought grills (or should I say grillz?) for herself and  her family members to wear in a family photo that Tanner could be surprised by later. We devised a plan for everyone secretly slipping them in and actually pulled it off until the last shot when Tanner looked over at Sara Kate and she couldn’t help but smile. This is Tanner realizing that everyone but him is wearing one. 2016-11-15_0028 2016-11-15_00292016-11-15_0030 2016-11-15_0031 2016-11-15_0032

Because of the storm blowing through, someone came up with the brilliant plan to flip the cocktail hour and the ceremony in hopes that pushing the ceremony time back would allow for it to still be outside. And that worked! Sara Kate got the outdoor ceremony she had her heart set on.

    I love your processing in general, but on this wedding especially. Everything is perfect. The coverage, the tones, the colors. You nailed it completely.
