Our Rose of Sharon bush has started to bloom this week and I was so excited to photograph our beautiful bride Jessica and her handsome groom Robert among its flowery branches!  They were the best sports about nestling in the blooms, and well, honestly, about everything!  During their mountain top photo shoot there was no […]

During Karina and Eric’s wedding, the Golden Horseshoe Inn was filled with the sounds of happy laughter and toasts.   Glasses sloshed a little as they were raised in jubilant celebration after each of the heartfelt speeches by Best Man and Maid of Honor.   I love days like this.  Sometimes I think of our building as […]

As a wedding planner and wedding photographer, if I had my choice of super-powers, I would definitely choose control of the weather.  But it seems I didn’t need those powers for Kim and Matt’s wedding…everything just seemed to happen perfectly on its own!   It was the first really hot day of the summer, but a […]

When little kids go to school, they are taught to be “bucket fillers”.  I remember my own little girls coming home excitedly to tell me that they had learned all about people who were “bucket dippers” and “bucket fillers”.  A bucket dipper takes water out of your bucket, and leaves you empty.  A “bucket filler”, […]

  The Golden Horseshoe Inn was definitely in a New York state of mind for John and Kayla’s beautiful wedding day!  So many guests traveled from out of town to be a part of this special day.  Many came from New York, and we were charmed by their accents, and their deep love for one […]

During a quiet moment on Tammy and Stan’s wedding day, Tammy’s son Logan pulled her aside and said “I was watching you during the ceremony mom, with all the mist swirling around you, and I thought to myself, wow, she is literally on cloud nine”.  So despite the rain and fog, everyone began referring to […]

  Our bride Margaret’s shoe game is strong…very strong.  So, if you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I think I’ll be the first bride to wear Lemon Meringue Pie themed shoes on my wedding day”, I am sorry to tell you that you are a few days too late 🙂  Margaret looked adorable at every wedding […]

Snuggled in the back seat, on the drive to the mountain top, Ryan said to Cara “so how did your morning go?” and she replied with a laugh “hair was interesting…the beginning stages of ‘the pouf’ are truly terrifying”.  This sort of sums up Cara and Ryan for me.  They are just so light-hearted and […]
