A Wintergreen Engagement

  • Matt + Danielle | Engaged

at Panera several months ago. We talked about all things wedding and they shared their amazing proposal story. They were on top of one of the most gorgeous overlooks at Wintergreen when Matt got down on one knee and asked Danielle to be his….. forever. Perfect right? Well if you have a perfect proposal, you need some perfect engagement pictures to go with it! So naturally, we traveled up the mountain to shoot their portraits where it all began! It was gorgeous… 75 degrees and not a cloud in the sky! Matt and Danielle were hanging out outside of Matt’s parent’s mountain home when I arrived.

  • Garrett + Rachel

I feel like I should pinch myself! Looking back over the last two years, my blog has been full of our friend’s weddings!!

It’s an awesome feeling to be able to serve my friends in this way and I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of Garrett and Rachel’s wedding day! This wedding day was so incredible to watch because I remember sitting on the couches at our campus bakery shop talking with Rachel about when this day would come. She was only a freshman and she had really only seen Garrett from a distance… but she liked him.

I could tell that from the first 5 minutes of meeting her and then as I got to know her throughout the last 8 months, I found out that Britt has been a princess for a LONG time. That’s how everyone talks about her. She’s just so sweet and kind and “princess-like”. This description couldn’t have rang more true than on her wedding day. I walked into the bridal suite and there she was, curling her hair and singing along to a disney sound track with her gorgeous voice! Britt was so excited… and a little nervous because  everything about
