My first wedding of 2015 and my was it a good one! Jennifer and Chun were married high atop a hill at the Summit House, which proved to be the perfect cozy setting for this winter wedding! Though it sprinkled a bit throughout the day, Jennifer and Chun didn’t let the weather dampen their spirits in the least, and we were still able to get plenty of portraits outside around the pretty venue.

Such the perfect way to kick off the year and so excited for all my 2015 weddings!

There are times couples book me through email and I don’t meet them until the engagement session. Or I meet with just the bride over coffee and don’t meet the groom until then. Or, as happened here, I met & got to know Allison over a fun meeting at the Culver Hotel, but since they had done an engagement session prior to even finding me online, I didn’t meet Elijah until the wedding day.

But I’d just like to say {as I hope these images below express} that just seeing them interact for the first time that day, maybe from just one or two seconds into their First Look(!), I could sense what an amazing relationship they have. In the way they both instantly relax in each other’s presence. Their constant smiles throughout the day. Joyful tears exchanged at the altar, their words exchanged in vows. An overwhelming excitement and support extended from their family and friends. It all comes together to say – this here? this is a special kind of love.

I am so happy they opted for a first look, as it allowed tons of time for portraits around the amazing Summit House. I love the cozy vibe of this venue and Allison & Elijah played that up with lots of warm and homey details, including amazing florals created by Kim of Art with Nature. I always love her soft & romantic arrangements!

Have I mentioned how blessed I feel to document days like this? :)

Love the bridesmaids’ bouquets (billy balls FTW!) and accessories. Those chunky necklaces were so perfect!

I don’t usually post too many silly pictures, but these seriously had me cracking up so hard I could barely sit still long enough to edit them. I adore this bridal party – SUCH DEDICATION.

While I was photographing the girls, Connie got this great shot of the groomsmen!

Aside from being fantastically in love, can we just take a moment to reflect on HOW RIDICULOUSLY GOOD LOOKING these two are??

Tulips are some of my favorite flowers… love when they make appearances in weddings! :)

Ingrid & Robert were married at the beautiful Summit House last month. The light at this venue is always amazing! Their day was filled with a wonderful blend of tender moments and fun silly ones – I love a night that ends with some crazy dancing & this wedding most definitely did not disappoint! I also adored the soft color palette & details, especially the whimsical centerpieces (sweet peas? are they sweet peas? I love them.)

Enjoy this peek into their day!
