My very favorite part of this job is getting to be in the presence of radiant happiness.  I’ve always been a little bit too empathetic…I absorb the feelings of those around me whether I want to or not.  But on days like this one…days like Laura and Bill’s wedding day, the feeling of being in […]

We had the best day ever with Kiera and Lethon, during their gorgeous mountain elopement!  Kiera was a true superwoman, completing her nursing finals and then jumping right into planning the details of her special day!  I joked that I was truly safe with this amazing bride and groom, as they are both in the […]

Lisa and Brian were wedding guests at the Golden Horseshoe Inn waaaay back in 2014.  Somewhere in the back of their minds, they tucked us away as a sweet spot to renew their vows when the time came to celebrate a milestone anniversary.  And luckily for us, their beautiful 10 year anniversary vow renewal ceremony […]

One of the unexpected gifts of the current pandemic has been the gift of more time!  I just love photographing engagement sessions, but my busy wedding schedule means they can be really hard to fit in.  Which is why I had just the best time ever roaming through the mountains with Allison and Vince.  A […]

Lizzy and Coburn’s beautiful wedding day was preceded by many twists and turns thanks to the pandemic.  The large wedding they had lovingly planned turned into an intimate day for just the two of them and a few very close family members and loved ones.  All those who are near and dear to Lizzy and […]

Maybe it’s because I’ve missed being with other people.  Maybe it’s because we couldn’t have ordered up a more perfect summer afternoon if we had tried.  Maybe it’s because small weddings are my favorite.   But I think it’s mostly because we got to spend the day with some genuinely wonderful people.  Daron and Paul are […]

A Sweet Sixteen in Quarantine is not exactly what we were planning…but it is what we got.  So, like the rest of the world, we are doing our best to make lemonade from lemons.  Meet Belle.  My beautiful, quirky, crazy-smart, astrophysicist wanna be, almost sixteen year old daughter.  When she is not gathering “fun facts […]

This amazing couple is getting married in May 2020! We are SO EXCITED to be hosting Ariel and Paul’s wedding here at the Golden Horseshoe Inn!  These two are bucket fillers…they just make me overflow with happiness!  I’ve adored Ariel and Paul since the very first time I met them…think of it as Wedding Planner/Couple […]

You guys!  This was such a fun reunion!  Brianne and Joel were a Golden Horseshoe Couple two years ago in 2017 – you can see their wedding HERE! I love keeping up with all of my GHI couples – you all still feel like family, and I love hearing about your adventures and accomplishments – […]

If true love was a color – I think that it would surely be blush pink!  Yesterday there seemed to be pale pink everywhere we looked… in the tiny handmade bouquet clutched by our bride-to-be, in the new blossoms on the young apple trees, and in the rosy cheeks of our sweet (almost!) Mr. and […]
