i looooved this UD wedding and backyard reception for soooo many reasons. first, meredith + craig were incredibly  sweet, creative and trusted me 110%.  second, they were a referral from a  previous bride + groom "sam + jessica" whom i adore alomg with the bishops (jessica's mom + dad) :)

as you'll see in the images below ... this wedding was full of color, details, details, and more details!! everything from vintage vases for their center pieces to handmade pin wheels as unique seating cards. because they saw eachother before the ceremony we had plenty of time to shoot all over town! they even decided to make a pit stop a BW3's for a quick celebratory shot!  this wedding party was so much fun!!

the reception was at the evan's home and it could not have been more perfect .... the evening was very intimate ... i especially loved the lighting! thanks for letting me document your wonderfull day .... enjoy!

notice the ring bearer on the shot above and below:

meredith's family below along with a shoe shot .... loved them!!

this wedding was very special because lindsey is one of our former nannys.  she spent a whole summer with us after i had my twin boys and is actually a twin herself.  after leaving the area to be a school teacher .... lindsey never forgot our family.  her and chris periodically would come over and see the boys ... sometimes they would steal them away for the day just for fun!  we all adore her and her entire family for that matter. i was so excited when lindsey asked me to photograph her wedding. i knew she would be a stunning bride and not to mention chris couldn't be any more handsome. their wedding was more than perfect! 

i know you've been dying to see these images. i cannot believe how dramatic the clouds were that day. .... slideshow coming soon .... enjoy!
