Watching Ren shed tears as Gretchen walked toward him, slipped on his ring, kissed him and walked back down the aisle with him was precious. Guests sang a blessing to the tune of “Edelweiss” right before they were pronounced husband and wife, and I don’t think I’ve witnessed something so tender in a ceremony before.


These two have big and fun personalities, but they’re calm, intentional and thoughtful at the same time. That’s a rare combination, and these two have an extra measure of love! It was a late December wedding and New Years was approaching but Christmas was still in the air. Reception details had a luxurious feel but her amazing shoes and cape veil really started off the amazing details for the day! Gretchen was donned in a Heidi Elnora gown with a cape veil that left everyone speechless.
