This my friends, is a great way to start off my new blog! Nick and Kelsey were a dream to photograph! I was in awe of the lovely details and planning that went into this wedding. From the lemonade stand to the delicious family made carrot cake cupcakes. Fun fact, the band The Blackberry Bushes Stringband also played at my own wedding reception! It was an awesome trip down memory lane. What a BEAUTIFUL group of people to capture and to spend the afternoon with.
Here is what the bride had to say in regards to her fabulous day:
“We wanted to take a moment to give a huge and heartfelt thanks to everyone who poured their time and energy into making our wedding weekend such a beautiful and memorable occasion.
