Jess + Chris

Marriage is taking a chance, diving in, and surrendering every part of yourself, good or bad, to the person you want to spend your life with. It’s about giving up, giving in, and letting go – but instead of losing out on something good, you get to be part of something incredible.

Jess + Chris are the perfect mix of head-over-heels love and the closest friendship. It’s not very often that a couple can cry together, whisper to each other even though they’re surrounded by people, hula hoop under the setting sun, and then dirty dance to fun club music, all on the same day. The amount of love and respect they have for each other is so much, so abundant, so full, that it can literally be felt if you get close enough to them.

This wedding was more than a joining of two people and two families. It was the start of a beautiful, lifelong marriage between two friends, lovers, and soul mates. #chrispybacon2017 was exactly what it sounds like – a gorgeous event celebrating a gorgeous couple, capped off with lots of fun and one hell of a dance party.

Jess + Chris – congrats on your new life together. #chrispybacon is our fave.

Samantha + Adam – A Love-Filled Summer Wedding in the Country

All, everything that I understand, I only understand because I love.” ~Tolstoy

Love was definitely the overwhelming emotion at this beautiful celebration on the weekend. Sam + Adam were surrounded by family and friends, all coming together to witness this gorgeous young couple tie the knot.

Every aspect of their day was gorgeous – the stunning dress, the beautiful outdoor ceremony (narrowly missing the brief window of rain!), the amazing venue at Stonefields, complete with 6 foot chandeliers and gourmet cuisine – but the most beautiful moments, by far, were whisking the bride and groom away for a short moment, allowing them to exhale, and catching the briefest of glances as they looked at each other… nothing but love, nothing but compassion, nothing but excitement for the life ahead.

Samantha + Adam – here’s to a lifetime of family, friendship, fun, and love. Best wishes and have a blast on your honeymoon! Xoxo

Josie + Josh – Parks, Pinball + Perogies

Building a life and marriage with someone you love isn’t always a walk in the park. Sometimes people get relationship envy and look at a couple and think, “I wish I had what they have.” What a lot of people don’t realize though, is that the envy-inducing relationship works because they work at it. Simple, no secrets, no magic – just two people who love each other, work together, and see beyond any of the little things.

It’s obvious that Josie + Josh are planning a marriage, not just a wedding. A commitment means so many things, and it was so amazing to hang with a couple who laughed together through the discomfort of weird smooshy posing, lost against one another graciously at the arcade, and lovingly shared all of the perogies, no matter which side of the plate they happened to fall on. Life is made so much happier when you can find comfort in each other’s laughter, support each other through wins and losses, and share every bit of life with each other without worrying that you might be missing out.

Cheers to a wedding to remember and a marriage to last a lifetime! Xoxo

Rebekah + Salim – A Windy Downtown Engagement

These two are so incredibly in love, and being able to enjoy one another despite rain, wind, and lack of sleep is definitely a testament to that. What could have been a damper of a day turned into an evening of running, laughing, puddle-jumping with cute umbrellas, and middle-of-the-street twirling.

Christie + Shane – Off to Paris We Go

Every so often we’re invited to participate in a wedding that is so much more than just a day’s event for two people. It’s a joining of two families, a beautiful, uplifting time for people to travel and come together, to relish in each other’s company, and to reminisce about all of the amazing relationships that have developed over the years.

We had the most amazing time taking part in every aspect of Christie & Shane’s day; from just hanging out while everyone got ready; to being witness to the most heartfelt, beautifully written vows; to listening to their parents, friends and family speak so highly of them during their speeches, expressing their love, pride, and gratitude in just being a part of their lives. Small, intimate weddings tend to have a certain closeness and familiarity to them, and we felt like we were being enveloped into that new family with open arms.
