Steven + Whitney

I can’t even describe to you how delighted I was that this was the wedding that wrapped up our wedding season for 2016. I totally connect with Steven + Whitney, their love for nature + the outdoors, their strong family ties and Whitney’s ability to see beauty in the commonly overlooked details. Steven + Whitney’s wedding day reflected all of these characteristics and was such a joy and an honor to take part in.

I was gushing over the classy and soft color palette of navy blue and blush pink, not to mention all of Whitney’s fun details. Their vows were exchanged beneath the big and beautiful arms of a maple tree on the grounds of her sister’s farm— Giving Tree Farm. And in place of a unity candle ceremony, Steven + Whitney carved something special into the trunk of a tree that will be planted and grow along with them in their new life together. I just loved being right in the thick of all the family love that was surrounding Steven + Whitney… big families = big love! And I so loved being back with these beautiful people again after photographing her sister’s wedding a couple of years ago.

Without further ado here is Steven + Whitney’s gorgeous, summer wedding!
