From the Photographer

This colorful wedding was the perfect summer wedding. The White Morgan Creek Barn was the perfect backdrop for the pops of various shades of pink. Jessica and Austin said their I Do’s in an open air chapel surrounded by friends and family.

 

Tell us your engagement story!

We normally go to my family’s lake house for the 4th of July every year, so it wasn’t unusual when Austin suggested we go there for the 4th this year, too. Little did I know, Austin had been planning for months to make this one of the most special days of our lives. While my mom, sisters and I went into town to pick up some fireworks, Austin and my family (dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins) were back at the lake setting up the perfect proposal scene. Austin built a gazebo that he strung with hundreds of lights and placed flowers all around. When we returned to the house, my dad escorted me down to the water, where I saw Austin standing under the gazebo. He popped the question, and I sobbed a big “YES!”. When we turned around, I noticed that Austin arranged for both of our families to be there to enjoy the moment with us and they were all sitting behind the tree watching!

 

What has you most excited when you think about your wedding day?

Walking down the aisle to my soon-to-be husband! It will be a moment we cherish forever.

 

Do you have any advice for other couples planning their wedding?

Tread lightly when buying wedding magazines and scrolling through Pinterest. While it can be fun to day dream in all of your bridal bliss, the magazines can start to make you feel like your wedding has to be a specific way. Don’t fall into the trap! Your day will be amazing no matter what.
