This was my last wedding of 2019, and YOU GUYS…it was AMAZING! It wasn’t just the venue, the unique color scheme, perfectly styled reception or incredible florals that made this wedding extra special, it was my beautiful couple! Gaelyn and Jonathan are two of the absolute sweetest human beings I have ever had the honor of photographing! I knew from their engagement session last fall that I was in for a real treat having these two be my last wedding of the year. They felt like old friends and made my job incredibly too easy. Aside from being so photogenic, their love for each other just exudes from their smiles and the way they embrace each other. That is hands down why my favorite moment of their day was their first look. Jon couldn’t have had a sweeter reaction when he saw how gorgeous Gaelyn looked. Not only was their first look emotional, but he was just as awestruck when Gaelyn made her way down the aisle during their ceremony. True love at its finest!
The Market at Grelen was just as dreamy as I imagined it would be. I had been to visit and have lunch at their market several times before and always hoped I’d have the opportunity to photograph a wedding there. With so many options for portraits, ceremony setups, and rain plan locations, it truly is the perfect venue! Even with minimal wedding decor, the greenhouse and market is full of exotic plants and florals, and garden decor that make the space so naturally beautiful! Gaelyn and Jon definitely have a knack for planning, because they had a clear vision for their day that was executed so perfectly! With the help of some incredibly talented vendors, their wedding day went off without a hitch and most importantly, was so much fun!! I can’t imagine a better celebration to kick off this new chapter for Gaelyn and Jon to begin together as husband and wife! Thank you both so much for allowing me to be a part of your day! Your love is so inspiring and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you two next! xoxo
