more about me

World travelin’, sustainability guru, humanitarian, foster and adoptive mommin’, photographer, photobooth-er, educator, multiple hat wearing entrepreneur. This girl’s love language is hugs and her tank is filled by serving others. You can find her under a palm tree, on a mountain, renovating a vintage trailer/house or running through the sprinklers with her husband, two boys and three fur babies.

There are no words to describe this wedding. That’s why I’m about to share so many images. Because I want everyone to truly see the magnitude of this breath taking wedding. Down to the smallest details, the entire day just flows so well together. Melissa & Kory have put so much work into making this the wedding of their dreams, and I think they have exceeded their expectations. The day was a blast, bar hoping in Westport after freezing at the Kaufman Opera Center with 28 mile per hour wind…   the laser sword fights, a gift from Melissa’s mom, the adorable flower girls so willing to model, Melissa’s gorgeous train that flowed around her feet throughout the day, or just in the way Kory looked at his jaw dropping bride as she walked into the big doors to walk so gracefully with her dad down a 200 foot long isle to her groom. We had so much fun with this couple and their friends. And what troopers to tag along with me for so long as we froze for my last wedding of 2011.

I can say, I honestly ended with one of the best weddings of my 2011 year. Definitely feature worthy for magazines, blogs and websites. Take a look at how incredibly in love these two are and all the fun we had this Nov day. I love all their details. Enjoy!
Congratulations to Mr and Mrs, Kory & Melissa!
