A February wedding. Blue walls, yellow shoes and white dress. The day bright and the clouds moving. Jocelyn and Henry say I DO at his parent's old historic home in northwest. A sunshine-lit room filled with family and friends and piano music. Paper stars in the windows and yellow flowers everywhere. A sunset, an almost-spring night, and a party at…
Last Saturday was the wedding of the lovely Queensland couple Karen and Jeremy.
They were married at Bago Vineyards in Wauchope in a beautiful afternoon ceremony. As Karen walked down the aisle her guests handed her roses, each having a special meaning from a special person which she then used as her wedding bouquet.
The laid back couple had no bridal party, only their gorgeous son Digby as their pageboy who's naming ceremony was included in the wedding ceremony.

I had the great joy of photographing Chris and Merrill's wedding this Saturday in Grand Rapids. These two made me cry. And laugh. (And, I've never seen a bride's shoes create such a commotion. Kate Spade does things right.) So, take a peek and check back in to see the full edit soon. Congratulations, Chris and Merrill!!!
I got in your car and said "I can't do this". Taking a weekend off from everything just seemed impossible. While you we're gassing up the car and loading up our bags I was whispering mental checklists to myself and holding on to every single to-do that hadn't gotten ta-done. We drove along the highway, and while you took in the beautiful sights of empty fields and sunsets, I sat in the passenger seat fixated on the number of miles between us and a useable restroom.
This is one of the most touching things I have ever seen at a wedding.
The bride's father passed away before he could see her get married, so the men in her family did something very special for the father/daughter dance.
Watch, but grab some kleenex first. Just. WOW.
It can be difficult to decide what to wear for an engagement photo session, but there's no need to go running out to buy new clothes for the occasion. Here are a few tips to make prepping easier:
1) Think bright colors! Just like when you attend a TV show taping, they tell you to wear bright colors if you'd like to get on camera and not blend in with the rest of the crowd...the same goes for an engagement photo shoot.
I love personal touches added to your wedding day. This Bride and Groom met on an airplane! Ron Ben-Israel Cakes captured this in an elegant way with simple little planes on a white vanilla cake with alternating layers of chocolate and hazelnut praline with hazelnut crunch filling.
