Lace and Burlap Wedding │ Jeremy & Melissa

Melissa is my SIL’s niece, and she lived at their place for a while, so I got to know her a bit. She was my muse for my first (and only) styled shoot , and she was an absolute DREAM to shoot. So imagine my delight when Jeremy proposed and they asked me to be their wedding photographer!! I didn’t know Jeremy at all, but got to hang out with them both and get to know him a little during their forest and vintage bike engagement session! We had an awesome time. It was super chill, and kinda hilarious at times, and I knew their lace and burlap wedding would be amazing!!  I love the combo of the outdoors/rustic/burlap with the glamour of soft waves/lace/high heels.  Super girlie, yet with loads of charm.  That describes this girl to a tee 😉

Once again, I had the DISTINCT privilege of working with my girl, Charlene Stam , who was given the DISTINCTLY difficult chore of rounding up these rowdy boys to get some photos! I was much more relaxed hanging out with the girls, who took their time getting ready, eating cinnamon buns and having coffee.

Absolutely loved the lace detail on this dress!


Um, can we talk about the flowers for a minute? Quik’s Farm absolutely OUTDID themselves with this bouquet. So stunning!!


M, you are radiant.


Vanessa from Illusions did a beautiful job on Melissa’s romantic curls.







Finishing touches.  Looking pretty put together there Jeremy.  You clean up nice.




Have I mentioned that I love first looks??  This is so sweet!  And the ring bearer and flower girl didn’t even receive any prompting to go over there and watch.  SO CUTE!!


Ugh.  You guys melt me.


Then we did family photos in the cornfield, along with some bridal party shots with the kiddos, before heading up a nearby mountain to take more photos on a ridiculously stunning property overlooking the valley.  Thank you Melissa for arranging the location!!






Loving this shot from Char!!


And while she was doing her thing, I was lurking down below and grabbed this shot.


Helllooooo stunners!!!


The boys looking very suave.


And one of my fave bridal party photos ever!!  While we were getting ready, I asked Melissa if we could steal her couch and bring it along.  They had a limo, so couldn’t take it, and it wouldn’t fit in my van, so we ended up putting it in the back of Jeremy’s truck and Charlene drove!  and I’m SO GLAD!!  I love these shots!!



Char playing with her Lensbaby!  Super love.



Can you believe that this is someone’s YARD??  #someday #wishfulthinking



swoooooon.  Favey-fave.  FO SHO.


Then we moseyed on down to the church, where Melissa & Jeremy officially became husband and wife!!  We aren’t allowed to photograph the ceremony at this church, so Charlene and i took the time to take photos of the reception hall!


This was such a cool idea – find your name and table number, and take a selfie with the Instax, and replace your name tag with a polaroid photo!







You two had such a beautiful day, and I was so stoked to be a part of it!!  Love you both, xoxo.
