love blooms: meg and daniel are married

I loved this wedding. No, I LOVED this wedding! There was something so sweet and sincere about the entire day. The love amongst these families joining together was displayed in countless actions, hugs, tears and smiles. I’m not sure that words could actually convey how full my heart was watching this marriage begin right before my eyes; but maybe the images below can. What an honor!

Meg started the day with the breakfast of champions… well, kinda!

Then it was on to getting ready. Kerry Sue did such a fabulous job with Meg’s hair and kept us right on track with time…such a huge blessing to a photographer!

This image of Meg’s grandmother is one of my favorites from the morning.

Meg’s dress looked so beautiful blowing in the wind!

I could have taken pictures of these “Bloom” shoes all day long! Aren’t they awesome!? They were the perfect touch to Meg and Daniel’s garden inspired wedding.

One of my new favorite ring shots.

Meg and Daniel decided to do a “First Look,” which gave us the opportunity to spend extra time with both them, their families and their bridal party! I always highly suggest this, because it not only helps with the flow and stress of the day, but it’s also a super precious moment between the bride and groom that you otherwise don’t get to see in it’s fullness. I still remember my “First Look” with Rahul and cherish those sweet minutes as some of the best of our wedding day.  I’m pretty sure I’ll always remember Meg and Daniel’s too. I was so touched by their gentle demeanor with one another. I was literally shooting through tears and then saw that my mom, my second shooter for the day, was crying as well! EMOTION!!!

Check out these images below and you’ll see just what I’m talking about!

I couldn’t resist sharing these next two! The entire day,  we kept brushing love bugs off of Meg’s dress. I assured her that they could easily be removed in post production, but just for kicks, I left them in this one. 

Yes, I’ll admit it. I could photograph Meg all day! Isn’t she gorgeous? Can’t wait to schedule their newlywed session!

While I was spending time with the groomsmen, I glanced over and saw Meg, just like this. It is in fact, one of my favorite images of her from the day.

And here’s another favorite…

Yes, the groom was handsome and photogenic too! 

Love sweet love!

The lovely bride and her mom! (Sorry, forgot to post this one the first time around!)


Bubbles, such a fun way to exit the church!

Can’t wait for their wedding coming up in the Fall!

We were packing up to head over to the reception when I walked by the bridal room and saw Meg’s sister in law bustling up her train. Something about the lace just makes this image!

The groom’s parents watching during the first dance was just precious!

BEST groom and mom’s dance to date! Check out these smiles!

Perfect closing to the perfect day… a family prayer.

Check out Meg and Daniel’s wedding video below and be sure to take note of the awesome cake smashing, compliments of Daniel, the best man’s  “ballad,” and some great chicken dancing!

Thank you Meg and Daniel for inviting me to be a part of your day. It was a joy to watch you become husband and wife. May you continue to walk this journey with deep devotion for one another and for the One who brought you together!
