Jon and Holly - The Wedding

This is one of the last pictures we took on Jon and Holly's wedding day before the sun set and I am totally in love with it! It symbolizes the beginning of their new life together as they walk hand in hand down the road on their journey as newlyweds, well that's how I see it anyway:) These two were so relaxed AND hilarious which sure made their big day a joy to be a part of! When I look back at the experience I remember laughing a lot and seeing them do the same, it was great! What made it even greater was the fact that I got to come back to one of my favorite wedding venues, the Windmill Winery. The place is so charming with its vintage farm feel.

As Holly's bridesmaids were lacing up her gown the flower girls were watching in wonder, it was adorable:)

Holly's mother helped put on the finishing touches to her bridal attire.

Jake captured this shot as the guys were getting ready, love it!

The "first look".

Love these next few.

Jon gave each of his groomsmen a pocket watch.


Jon and Holly created a book using their engagement pictures for their guests to sign. I have been seeing this more and more at weddings and I think it's the perfect solution to sprucing up the whole guest book experience not only for the guests but also for the bride and groom to look back on.

We took a few last shots outside as the sun was beginning to set and I love the results!

Gotta end with a personal favorite:) Congratulations newlyweds!

Meet Baby Owen

This cute little dude had just turned 2 weeks old the day before our shoot. He looks so calm and peaceful right?:) Well, don't let this first shot fool ya, he was practically wide awake and moving about the entire time we were taking the pictures! Since he was so active and alert it was fun to watch new mom and dad (Mike and Melissa) interact with their baby boy. Owen made so many great expressions and oh how I loved seeing all the adorable newborn mannerisms! It's times like this when I really miss being in the thick of the newborn stage of parenthood:) Soak it all up you two!

We spent a good amount of time in Owen's green/owl themed nursery. I just love Melissa's taste of style!

Can't help but love this shot! Newborns make great expressions and so do parents of newborns:)

Oh how sweet is a new dad with his baby?!

Newborn wrinkles are just the best:)

Looks like little Owen is trying to tell us something:)

We headed outside to end the session and although it was a cloudy day it was still pretty bright for a two week old!

Owen's cute little hat helps to show how tiny he really is.

Melissa's mother had one request:)

You three make a beautiful family. Congratulations on your new little addition!
