It seems only fitting that these two would tie the knot during fair season, as just 6 or so years after they met each other in high school, a day together at the Minnesota State Fair was the last they'd spend together as just boyfriend and girlfriend. When the day was over enjoying the fair together, Aaron lead Carlene down a path to the Minnehaha Falls, explored the sites with her and then popped the question on a little bridge by the falls. As you may have guessed, she said yes!! And then this weekend, she said, I do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations, Aaron & Carlene! Your wedding was just beautiful and we all LOVED being a part!

There’s a fresh love story on the blog today - and it all started with a couple from rival high schools placing a bet on a basketball game. 🏀💕 (I just love how there’s literally no lack of variety on how two people meet and fall in love!!) Head to the link in my bio for some simplistic, boho wedding inspiration. 🌿
He didn't think he believed in love at first sight, but he met her for the first time on the playground in only second grade and there was no going back. As the years went by, through moves and different schools and new jobs and life changes, he kept coming back to her. In the good times, in the hard times... she was always the one he'd call. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He looked over at his bride in front of a packed room of teary-eyed wedding guests. Looking back now, his voice choked up, I realize I loved you from the moment I met you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That's a love story everyone was happy to be a part of this weekend as they said their vows in front of hundreds of friends and family... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations, Jon & Ashlee. I know I speak for everyone when I say I wish you all the best in life and love...
By now, I definitely imagined Cedric would be an older brother. I’ll be honest... this place of in-between tugs at my heart, but I’ve lost count of the amount of times Ben has turned and reminded me, “I have so much peace about EXACTLY where we are right now. There’s no other Ben and Emily to compare us to... this is our story and no one else’s and I love it just the way it is.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope you can love your story exactly the way it is right now, too. Even if it is different than what you see in your Instagram scroll or how you imagined life playing out five years ago. It’s yours to cherish as being good and blessed and ENOUGH, and if you let Him, God will help shape how you accept what He gives until you are fully satisfied even in the times of waiting. ♥️
Gimme allll the pretty roses...
Everyone usually asks him how he got her, but the reality is, she was the first to crush hard on the dance captain and member of one of the best show choirs in the country. She took his picture, posted it on Twitter and asked, Can somebody get me this guys' number? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He saw her tweet, got her number and their love story began! Three hours apart had nothing on them. After months of texting, she made the drive to see him perform at a coffeehouse concert... they met at Ruby Tuesdays and he was nervous, but she talked nonstop. After the concert, he bought her a hot chocolate, took her out to the lake where they sat on top of his truck talking the night away and shortly after that, they went 'official'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three years later, he proposed at a fancy restaurant on the night of a college formal... he had planned to wait until dessert, but nerves were high and he ended up pulling the ring out in the middle of their entree. She said yes!!! (But not before spitting Chicken Alfredo on him.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Their chihuahua pups complete them as a little family and made a grand appearance as ring bearers on their wedding day... their ceremony felt tender and sacred and every part of their day was equal parts beauty and joy. Thanks for choosing me to capture such an incredibly special season in your life, Tim & Makenzie! It will always be one of my favorites. ❤️
They met at a mutual friend's wedding, walking down the aisle together as bridesmaid and groomsman almost six years ago and Shelbie knew right away... there was a small voice that whispered to her as soon as she met him, saying, You're going to marry him one day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And marry him she did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast forward just a handful of years after their first meeting, and there Josh as in the kitchen with their dog beside him, asking her to be his forever! She was completely surprised and completely in love and as of this weekend, is now completely his WIFE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They walked down the aisle together again, but this time at their own ceremony on their own wedding day! Congratulations, Josh and Shelbie!! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous day with all of us... 💕
They tied the knot!! Congratulations, Tim & Makenzie! 💕
