living vicariously

This is as close as I will get to my dream wedding. And that’s totally okay, because I would much rather capture it than be in it!! 🙂  (I lie… I’d love to be behind the camera as well as in front of it if I had all of these vendors involved!!)

After over 160 weddings in the past 9 years, Ross and I always talk about what we would have done differently for our wedding. Honest answer is – not much. We had ours in the morning with immediate family only, then we all went out for pizza after and finished the day with a big reception with tons of people at the church Ross was working at. Our moms and grandmas made the desserts. It was us.

I put together my vision that I have carried around in my head for the past 30 some years, contacted the most amazing vendors who were amazing to work with, and here is the result.
