I absolutely loved being their Oaks at Salem wedding photographer. Their day was one of my favorites! Perfect weather, beautiful wedding, and one very happy couple totally head over heels in love. I will never forget how big their smiles were, or how Laura was so happy that all she could do was giggle, or the way he looked at her when he turned around during their first look. Their were so many moments that stick out to me, and I’m so excited to share their day here in blog format!

The details of their day were carefully crafted. They kept a neutral palette through everything with pops of lavender here and there pull out the feelings of spring. They had the sweetest little wreath escort cards perfectly placed at each setting for their guests of honor. Their outdoor May ceremony and tented reception are what every bride dreams of for her day.

Laura and Daniel, thank you for letting me be there for your special day. To capture it all on film and document the start of your forever together. You two are the sweetest of couples, and I’ve loved every second with you!! We wish you two the best of marriages and can’t wait to see where the adventure takes you!!
