At times, I am at a loss for words.  When you’ve known a family for many years and are honored to capture so many beautiful moments for them, its hard to type the amount of gratitude that comes with all of that into a single blog post.  We’ve known Annie’s family for 8 years.  I met her sister, Jenni, when I did newborn photos for their little girl.  Soon after, we became dear friends (as did our daughters).  With that, brought many opportunities to get to know the entire Conner family.  We are so thankful that God can bring the sweetest of friendships into our lives when we least expect it.

With that being said, Annie and Ryan….wow…such a beautiful day.  Because of the friendship that was already established, I felt like we were shooting a wedding of life-long friends.  I loved being able to chat with Annie long before there was a proposal, hearing about their journey, knowing when it all was taking place to being able to capture this long-awaited event that would start the journey of doing life together for the rest of their lives.  I am so happy that Annie found someone as sweet as Ryan!  You guys are perfect for each other!

Annie and Ryan…thank you for letting us be a part of your incredible day!  It was such an honor to not only capture these moments for you, but to be surrounded by your family and friends and see the impact they have all had on you both.  Much love and hugs to you!  Excited for you to begin this journey!

Annie’s sister, Jenni (who I mentioned before;), came up with the idea of having each table write some words of wisdom, encouragement, thoughts/prayers that Annie and Ryan will be able to read on that table number’s anniversary.  Love this idea!  Annie_Ryan_Blog_049 Annie_Ryan_Blog_050 Annie_Ryan_Blog_051 Annie_Ryan_Blog_052 Annie_Ryan_Blog_053 Annie_Ryan_Blog_054 Annie_Ryan_Blog_055 Annie_Ryan_Blog_056 Annie_Ryan_Blog_057 Annie_Ryan_Blog_058 Annie_Ryan_Blog_059 Annie_Ryan_Blog_060 Annie_Ryan_Blog_061 Annie_Ryan_Blog_062 Annie_Ryan_Blog_063 Annie_Ryan_Blog_064HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
