It seems only right to share this precious moment from Kaitlyn + Bret's rainy wedding day last spring. The non-stop rain in Dallas this week has been giving me all the cozy, cooped up feels and it looks like it's here to stay. Photographers, if you're like me and have a wedding to shoot this weekend follow the link in my profile to see my top 5 tips for photographing rainy wedding days. Who agrees that rainy wedding photos are some of the most romantic and timeless? 🌧
Whether it be road tripping through our new home state or hopping on an airplane and crossing the ocean, I find traveling humbling, exciting, and refreshing. I feel drawn to learn more how other corners of the world work. Beyond that, it's something Kyle and I do together to intentionally strengthen our marriage. ⠀ ⠀ The quality time away together is invaluable, which is why I am so excited that in less than 10 days we'll be boarding an airplane back to Europe. There are few things I love more than the idea of spending the first half of March exploring character-filled cities and serene countryside settings with my man.

“Shall we save you a seat?” How sweet is this custom designed RSVP card? Featuring hand torn paper and precious a hand drawn rope swing (a signature of The White Sparrow Barn), this suite is a thoughtful heirloom to be held near dear. I just can't wait to see how my 2018 brides have chosen to personalize their wedding days.⠀ ⠀ Stationery lovingly made by @sarahann_design
Feeling a whole host of emotions - anticipation, excitement, most of all joy - as I think about the week ahead. My wedding season begins next weekend with two kind hearted couples with back to back wedding days. I simply cannot wait!
