I was so excited to head back out to visit The Larese family once again on their farm. I just love this family – and let’s be honest I was super happy to go play with Mr. Ness again. But this time we finally got to meet their newest bundle – Emmett! (Or little “Toad”.) I am absolutely loving his Harry Potter-themed nursery! Ness is still figuring out what this whole Big Brother thing means and why he needs to be in the same photo with Emmett – but I can already tell they’ll be playing together before we know it.
Scott and Lance’s wedding was one of those that I was not ready to leave at the end of the night. It was such a wonderful day. They started off the day relaxing while the lovely ladies in their lives got pampered in one of the gorgeous historic lofts on Commercial Street. Then everyone headed across the street for some portraits in the garden at The Savoy Ballroom before everyone began arriving for cocktail hour. There were smiles all around as everyone mingled, excited to celebrate. After the cocktail hour, everyone took their seats for an extremely sweet and emotional ceremony. It was such a beautiful moment watching these two gentlemen walk each other down the aisle. Scott even surprised Lance by singing to him while a slideshow of images from their lives together played in the background. Happy tears were flowing all around as Lance & Scott were officially pronounced husband and husband.
After cutting their cake, it was time for an amazing meal from Simply Delicious before heading into some speeches that brought both laughter and more tears. There was no doubt that these two are surrounded by so much love from their family & friends. After dinner and speeches, they escorted one another to the dance floor to share their first dance as a married couple as the band played in the background.
Lance & Scott, thank you so much for including us in this amazing day. I am so grateful to have gotten this time with you and your loved ones. I am wishing you so much happiness in this next chapter of your love story!
Lots of Love,

I’ve already said it once and I’m going to say it again, I have THE BEST clients.
We are pretty sure that Miranda & Zachary’s love story is straight out of a romance novel!
Miranda’s dad chartered a plane for a business trip to Tennessee and she decided to tag along with her mom for a day of shopping. On the way, she couldn’t help but notice the super cute co-pilot. She was shy and couldn’t quite bring herself to ask him out – all the while hoping he would ask her for her number. He had noticed her as well but was trying to be professional while hoping they would fly with them again in the future so he could talk to her more. Luckily – Miranda got up the courage to leave her phone number in her airplane seat after their flight back home. And in her own words – “Zach did not play it cool and texted me two hours later.” Within days they went on their first date and they began their amazing love story.
For their engagement session, we headed to Finley Farms. This was a special location for them since Zach had actually proposed to Miranda on the bridge overlooking the mill. We had so much fun getting to know this adorable couple. They’ve never had professional photos together…not that you can tell! They couldn’t stop smiling at one another all night – and Zach was certainly more than happy to oblige all hugs and kisses throughout the session! I am SOOOO excited for their wedding this Summer! It is going to be amazing!
Congratulations again love birds!!!
This past weekend we celebrated Ashley & Michael’s wedding at Haseltine Estate. This wedding was a dream…and not just because of its stunning location. Ashley and Michael didn’t have an engagement session with us and so we ended up meeting for the first time on their wedding day. These two won my heart right from the beginning. By the time the night ended it felt like I had a whole new group of best friends!
When we arrived the guys were headed out to hit some golf balls while the girls relaxed and pampered themselves up in the bridal suite. And the relaxed, fun vibe continued all day & night. The sun was shining down on them for a sweet, beautiful ceremony. Everyone gathered for drinks and dinner by the pool. Then, as the sun slowly drifted down on the horizon, their friends toasted to their future before Michael & Ashley shared their first dance as husband and wife. After the formal festivities were done – it was time to PARTY! The dance floor was full all night long! This celebration was a long time in waiting, so everyone was more than ready to drink and dance the night away!
Ashley & Michael, THANK YOU for choosing to share such an amazing and perfect day with us. I am absolutely delighted to have met you both and all of your loved ones! I am so excited to see where your love story takes you next!
