The sun peeked over the mountains as Larissa and Charlie brushed the frost off of the brush on their hike up the trail in Garden of the Gods National Park. They walked hand in hand and reflected on the wild events that had taken place just a week and a half before. They had always […]
It started a few years earlier with a simple swipe right. Neither of them had any intention of starting something serious. But minutes after their first “date day” ended, Jenni was calling up her sister swearing that she had met the man she would soon marry. And while her sister initially rolled her eyes and […]
They initially met as coworkers and a friendship slowly sparked as they shared shifts and mutual work friends. Over time, she realized that he wanted something more than the friendship they already shared. The way her eyes twinkled when she smiled and her outgoing personality swept him almost immediately off his feet.
But when Adam put himself out there and asked Grace out on a date, she initially turned him down. Adam didn’t give up. He pushed and was patient, and finally Grace started to realize that the quiet and laid-back coworker took up more room in her heart than a typical friendship would. A few years later, they were sitting under the lights of the Christmas tree when Adam handed her the best gift of all – asking her to be his wife
We decided that it was only appropriate to celebrate their engagement with their four-month old Great Dane – and holy cow she was cute! They’ll be married next summer – a day they’ve been dreaming about for years – among the closest family and friends. Grace and Adam, thank you for toughing the weather and the chilliness, and I can’t wait to document your day next summer! xx – M
When she walks into a room, it immediately brightens and smiles break out on the friends and families faces that surround her. Even in the most stressful, chaotic moments in life, Kristin pours her heart and soul into caring and protecting the ones she loves most. It was only fitting that she cross paths with Gabe, the guy who always had his teammates back and who is always up for a laugh, a group of friends, and an adventure. Even in the beginning stages of their relationship as juniors in high school, their family could see- this was different. Although they were just teenagers at the time, they supported and cheered each other on in the ways of life just like two old, mature souls would.
On the perfect, sunny autumn day, happy tears welled up in the eyes of Gabe, Kristen, and all of their witnesses as Gabe turned around to see the woman that held his heart walk down the aisle. From reading love letters in the vineyard just moments before their ceremony, to sneaking outside for a quiet moment under the market lights during the middle of the reception, Kristin and Gabe strived to cherish every moment throughout the day. As the last song of the evening played, they danced alone in the empty reception room as husband and wife. Finally.
Kristin and Gabe, spending the day with you was a complete fairytale – we felt so welcomed by your family and friends and it was such a privilege to document your day. Wishing you eternal years of happiness and lots of relaxing margaritas in Mexico – xx, M + A
