  • John + Molly

As i was shooting this wedding, I thought to myself “How on earth am I going to put this wedding into words”.  This blog post was intimidating to write because I just don’t think just my “words” will do this wedding justice. The uniqueness of this was SO wonderful and the JOY that filled this celebration was undeniable.  Molly and John planned this wedding to mirror who THEY are. Every last detail had a piece of their personality all over it. I loved it… I loved it ALL!! Jill second shot this wedding with me and I’m always so thankful when my couples opt to hire a second pair of hands for their wedding because it really is a HUGE help to me! Jill spent the morning with the guys and I spent time shooting details

  • Featured Friday

Worried?! Are you scared that I’ve gone CRAZY?! I’m sure you’re a little concerned that Katelyn went crazy in Vegas, bumped her head and she seriously thinks it’s FRIDAY! No, I’m fully aware that today is THURSDAY….. however.. if I titled this post “Featured Thursday”… that would just sound DUMB. The wedding post for this week isn’t ready since I’ve been in Vegas all week so I’m swapping days. If you’re super type A…. you’re probably cringing right now and thinking “But Thursdays are ALWAYS “Wedding Days” for the blog! What is she DOING?!”. Well, sometimes you just have to work with what you have….

around 5:30, checked into the hotel and made our way upstairs. The doorbell dinged on the 25th floor and we were greeted by screams and “woohooooo’s” from Buddy and Jill! They arrived a few hours before us and we couldn’t WAIT to see them! We’re staying at the Signature at the MGM and our room is amazing…. and did I mention the VIEW?! The view is incredible!!!! Vegas has never looked so beautiful! We’re loving our time here. The people, the food and the community is absolutely amazing!! THANK YOU to everyone who has said hello, given hugs and have  gone out of your way to make new friends!
