Carrie + Nathan

Hi Friends!!

Happy HOT friday!! Though I love the summer, I am not enjoying this heat! I feel a little bit on lock down because there is nothing to do unless it is inside!! So, I am grateful for when it rains to cool things off, but then it disrupts all our photo plans!! oh, the never ending cycle! 

But, being inside also means I get so work on photos and write posts to share some wonderful weddings!!! A couple weekends ago we drove up to the gorgeous Big Canoe to spend the day with Carrie and Nathan, who said their vows overlooking a mountain rimmed lake, and celebrate listening to good music and delicious treats at the big canoe’s Lodge. We had such a great time, and loved this sweet wedding!! They did an amazing job on all of their DIY details, a very fun baby photo banner, and a dessert table to made me drool (just a little bit) upon seeing!

Carrie and Nathan, we had a blast!! You guys were just awesome, and we can’t begin to say thank you for allowing us to do what we do best. You were flexible and willing to do anything we asked, which I feel made the results of these photos incredible!!! There are definitely a few that have made my top 10 favs!! Hope you love and enjoy them!!! And happy life together!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE our pictures! Alea and Kim, we think you guys did such an outstanding job! Looking through the photos helped us relive all the little moments and laugh together. They completely capture the love, fun, and absolute joy we felt on our wedding day. I was so happy to see the DIY details, the reception craziness, and beautiful scenery of Big Canoe. I am sending the link out on facebook and via text for friends and family to hurry and come look at these! Thanks again, you were both so wonderful!
