Alexa and Austin's Intimate Backyard Wedding

This is a special Wedding because Alexa is my little sister! There are 6 of us sisters, and she is #4 in the sister lineup. And Austin, well he is an incredible man and there is not a more perfect person for Alexa. We love Austin, and we love Austin and Alexa together! 

After Alexa and Austin got engaged, they threw around a bunch of ideas about where and when to get married. Ideas were flying around (Hawaii was even a though at one point!) but in the end, they just wanted to be married and didn't want the hassle of planning a huge Wedding and waiting over a year, so they decided to have a very small, intimate Wedding in Austin's Parents backyard. Only immediate parents, siblings and grandparents were present and it was so beautiful! 

The day was calling for 100% chance of rain, so Austin and his (incredible) family scrambled to put tents up the day before the Wedding. We were sure the day would be a wash out, and as we did photos, the skies were black. (You can see them in a few of the photos) It was looming and we were rushing through photos becuase we were sure it would pour at any second, but in a Wedding Day miracle, it held off all night until after dinner. And when it did finally rain, IT POURED!!!! 

As the rain was coming down in buckets, the after party was starting and extended family and friends were showing up to join in the celebration! It was a bit chaotic for a bit as everyone was dodging the rain and bringing everything in, but man they took it in stride and everyone had a blast the rest of the evening. A special THANK YOU to Austin's family, they did so much work to make Alexa's vision a reality and we are so grateful she has such an incredible new family! 

Enjoy Alex and Austin's Wedding sneak peek!

Kimberly and Jay's Indiana University Auditorium Wedding

This past weekend, I got to photograph and be a part of the amazing vendors that came together to bring to life a GORGEOUS day for Kimberly and Jay down in Bloomington, at the Indiana University Auditorium!! Her vision for the day was so soft and romantic (right up my alley right!) and it was all beyond dreamy. They got ready at the Grant Street Inn, which is just the cutest little Inn you've ever seen, and it set the soft pretty tone for the whole day. But it was definitely the happiness and tears between Kimberly and Jay, all day, that was my favorite! I am so glad to be a tiny part of the beginning of their beautiful love story!
