For most of us, marrying our high school sweetheart was just a fairytale that never come true.
That’s not the case for Taylor and Ryan.
Their love story began when they were just 15 . It’s rare to grow up with the love of your life, but no one is more suited for it than Taylor and Ryan. Not only are they an amazing couple but they are some of the most kind-hearted, genuine individuals I have ever met. Every single bridesmaid and groomsmen considers themselves Taylor and Ryan’s best friends and even if you spend just 15 minutes with them all it is undeniably true that this group of friends is as close knit as it gets. They all poured out so much love and plant of happy tears for their two friends in the most loving, supportive way I have ever seen. And don’t get me started on the family that surrounds Taylor and Ryan. There isn’t enough space on this blog post to accurately depict the amazing families and individuals that Taylor and Ryan come from so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
I can honestly say I envy the way these two look at each other and I, along with their closest friends and family, could not have been happier to get to witness the beginning of their newest adventure in life.

Life sometimes takes us on wild, twisty rides that we don’t understand or like. And other times life is like floating around and around a lazy river on a warm summer day, comforting and good for the soul. Jenn and Mark’s wedding day was a lazy river day of life through and through. Full of peaceful earth-stopped-spinning moments, happy tears that make your own eyes well up with little drops of joy and not to mention some of the best dang toasts I have ever heard.
One of the best moments of the day was when Jenn pulled off the surprise bag piper she had been keeping a secret from Mark for months! With several people involved and a few hiccups later the look on Mark’s face when he heard the bagpipes was priceless and so worth all of the scheming and whispers.
Jenn and Mark’s love story isn’t one to tell through a blog but over a cup of coffee with tissues in hand. I will share that their story has brought a ray of hope into my own personal life and I know that my time spent with them over this past year was intentionally and purposefully planned and I truly hope they feel the same. My couples become a part of my life and I always look forward to staying in touch and capturing the adventures that life brings their way.
Jenn and Mark, I know it’s overused and may seem thoughtless to some, but I sincerely thank you for everything. I hope you know that your love story holds a very special place in my heart.
I swear I couldn’t love you more
than I do right now,
and yet I know
I will tomorrow.
I had the honor of kicking of my 2018 wedding season with two incredible individuals, Haileigh and Tyler. I realized early on that the love they have for one another runs deep and extends through to both sides of their families. Getting to experience just how deep that love runs was an amazing thing to witness. Now I’ve seen my fair share of criers at weddings and have yet to not cry myself at some point during the day, but I don’t know that I’ve ever seen so many people shedding happy tears as I did this day. The intensity of love that poured out of these two was overwhelming and touched every single person present. Haileigh and Tyler thought of every last detail from honoring family members watching from heaven to little tissue boxes for their guests during the ceremony. Their thoughtfulness resonated and made it a very intimate, enjoyable affair.
Oh and you know what they say about getting to see someone’s true colors? Seeing how they handled literal thunder and lightning roll in mere moments before their ceremony was the cherry on top of the sundae. The amount of grace and optimism that these two amazing humans showed during what could have been an immensely stressful situation inspired not only me but everyone around them I’m sure. The evening was filled with toasts, dancing, cake and donuts, and an abundance of hugs and kisses brought a perfectly imperfect day to an end.
Haileigh and Tyler, thank you for allowing me to witness your incredible love for one another and capture it in all of its essence.
