Sutherland weddings are a favorite around here. The staff, the venue, the fact that it’s 5 minutes from my house! We love them so much and absolutely love photographing them, especially on film like this one!

There is nothing I didn’t like about this day. The bride’s taste is impeccable. From the intimacy of their garden ceremony to their woodland styled reception, it was all perfection. Their green glass goblets and adorable photo bus were a fan fave! More importantly than all the details is their love.

Toast after toast, people talked about how much Doug loves Hunter. How he’s always talking about her and that from the moment she stepped into his life they all knew she was the one. At one point the bride’s dad asked every to raise their hand if they’ve ever heard Doug gush over how much he loves Hunter, and every single hand in the room went up. That’s the type of love every girl deserves.

The two of them have so much fun together, they make it easy for me as their Sutherland weddings photographer. They’re sweet, silly, romantic. Basically every photographers’ dream. Plus Hunter is the sweetest bride you’ve ever met. We kept finding ourselves distracted in conversation…on her wedding day! Brides like her are the best!

Hunter & Doug, thank you for letting me be part of your day! I hope the rest of your marriage is happier than the very first day! Can’t wait to see where life takes it, and to watch it grow even stronger! Congratulations on your happily ever after!
