“Hey pretty girl, lets build some dreams
And a house on a piece of land
Plant some roots and some apple trees
Hey pretty girl, lets build some dreams”
— “Hey Pretty Girl” || Kip Moore —
There are some weddings that I have the absolute priviledge of shooting, where I sit down to write the blog post and I honestly have no idea where to even start. Emily & Jake’s Veritas Vineyard Wedding is one of those. Their day was one of my favorites…every time we reached another part of their timeline, I found myself saying, “OH MY WORD! This is amazing!” From Emily’s details and dress (!!), to their first look, the background of all their portraits, the incredible ceremony backdrop (that ARCH!!), to their reception layout…not one detail was left undone, not one thing forgotten. There was only one thing that truly topped the gorgeousness of their day, and that was Emily & Jake’s love for each other, and the way they couldn’t keep their eyes off of each other. There are always so many nerves going the morning of a wedding, but you could see each of them instantly let all of those fly away the moment they saw each other. This was right…this was perfect…this was home.
Emily & Jake, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your day, and a small part of capturing your love story. I know you two will do great things together, and I absolutely LOVED spending the day with you! Enjoy many, many of my favorites from their day!
Father daughter first looks are one of my favorite things!
This ARCH though…
