These two are incredible.  Such a simple and profound love they have for each other. It was a joy to walk with them throughout their entire wedding day, observing the family ties and the just plain fun that everyone seemed to be having. All day long. And, i’m just going to poke this in here, the beauty of the groom waiting until his bride walks down the aisle to see her for the first time that day! The anticipation and the excitement. I just love it. I love every part of it. We had plenty of time for all the other portraits in between the ceremony and reception as the groom’s family is very large and the bride’s family very small. They soaked up all the love and gave out so many hugs and smiles, and  i so loved spending the day with these two families and all their friends. The dancing at the reception was so cool from the little kids to the grown ups, and the groom wrote the bride the song to their first dance!  Awwww, it was so sweet. So much talent here! I loved all the brown in the wool jacket (it was so warm but he wore it anyway) and the ring boxes. Her lavender colors blended everything together perfectly. Caleb and Jess. May you be blessed with the values that you have been taught (especially the dancing) and pass all of that goodness down through the ages. Thank you for having us!

I also loved the necktie. High class and old school. The groom and his 10 siblings, oldest to youngest. (above portrait)The bride has one sister who was the beautiful maid of honor. Isn’t that incredible? The mother’s helped each other get ready and the little sisters painted the bridesmaid’s fingernails. Everyone helped to do each other’s hair and the groomsmen all helped get the tiniest brother dressed up for the wedding day!


“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”


Thank you so much for having us!
