Des Moines Auditorium Wedding | Sherry+David

Enter Sherry+David and their Des Moines Auditorium Wedding.

There were many moments of Sherry+David's wedding day that had me in tears. The moment when Sherry requested to see David in the church sanctuary before the ceremony so they could have a moment alone without actually seeing each other. Yup. Tears. The toasts, when Sherry's sister told the story of her family and their journey from Iran to Sweden to the United States. Yup. Tears. The moment when she and her mother shared a dance together on stage. Yup. More tears. I actually had to dip off the stage after capturing their embrace because I could not keep it together. Le sigh. Their love is real, their family is incredible, and they are beautiful people. Thank You Thank You Thank You, Sherry+David! Congrats and cheers to your wedding! xo

2014 | Year in Review

What a year it's been. I've had so many awesome moments with amazing people, been witness to some beautiful weddings, made a ton of new friends, put myself in that 'uncomfy' zone and learned a TON! With 2015 upon us, I thought I'd share some of my favorite captures from the past year including some repeats and also some never-before-shared images. I was so lucky to be an attendee of a FIND Workshop this year. For those that are unfamiliar, FIND stands for Film Is Not Dead. I still have yet to write about my amazing experience there but even seven months since the workshop happened, I still can't quite put it all into words. So, in no particular order, 2014 in a nutshell. Cheers to 2015!

Married | Nikki+Chad's Garden Wedding in Port Orchard

Not only are Nikki+Chad one stunning couple, but they had the most splendid Garden Wedding in Port Orchard. It's never a bad thing in my book when there's too many flowers. On top of all the color and loveliness, there were so many smiling faces and so much love all around. I was definitely in OMG overload that day. The day began with torrential downpours. Ummm, torrential with an uppercase T. The family was soaked to their bones as they scrambled to pitch canopy tents, cover seats, protect the DIY decorations they had sweated over; all while Nikki got glammed up in the comfort of the family's warm, dry home. Which brings me to my next thought: I LOVE backyard weddings. Because it truly becomes a day all about just that. Family. The family wasn't going to let a little (ok, no a LOT) of rain get in the way of Nikki+Chad's vows.

And moment the ceremony was set to begin, it was like watching a miracle happen right before your eyes; the clouds parted, the sky turned a vibrant happy blue, and Nikki+Chad wed in the sunshine. It was magic, you guys! Please enjoy this set of lovely images from their wedding back in August. Congrats, N+C!
