The Comforts of Home

Many wedding days start out at home with brides, grooms, bridesmaids, groomsmen, hair and makeup experts, and a few important people.

Many times, the wedding party continues on to a wonderful venue. But these are different times and this bride and groom were able to flex their plans, filling their special day with the warmth of very close family and friends in their own home and back yard.

With a bit of planning, this turned out exactly perfect. Because of the change in location, their special guests included a couple of tie-wearing, handsome family members who would not otherwise have been able to see their people exchange vows.

What they love was present in the planned details as well as the unplanned.

Getting ready didn’t include travel for this wonderful couple and there was no problem with forgetting to bring something important along.

Another benefit is the many opportunities for this fair-haired guy to sneak into a photo or two.

The day didn’t feel rushed. It was beautiful with all of the details. It was comfortable like home is. It was perfection.

This is just a peek for Mary and Coley. We’re starting at the beginning of this fabulous day while the rest of the edits and organizing of images are completed.

Celebrating Family

There are anniversaries, birthdays, milestones, and many other events that are reason to celebrate. Often, it’s a simple gathering of family that’s the most important reason to recognize happiness.

These wonderful people have lots of milestones to celebrate.

A young man’s birthday. A quickly growing up lady. A celebration of years of marriage.

And there are celebrations of sunny days, time together, and moments of laughter.

This day was in between the milestones, but was very much a celebration of all of the things big and small and it was recognized through togetherness.

Here are some images from the fun of the afternoon.

Of course, we had to sneak in one mask image to document the times.

Thank you for celebrating in such a wonderful way. Please find the rest of your images here.
