Well, it’s hard to know exactly where to start with this EPIC celebration of family + love.

So let’s start with love.

My team and I’ve been blessed with 20 years of amazing clients that are fun, lovely, kind, happy, beautiful—all the great adjectives you can think of—our clients check the boxes.

Vanessa & Rob? They’re all of those adjectives and more—and soooo happy and in love it feels contagious. Such a joy to witness and an inspiration to document!

Family. WOW—what a family. I loved seeing so much love, support and the nicest families coming together to celebrate Vanessa & Rob.

Finally, I want to give a special nod to all the best-of-the-best in the wedding industry making wedding magic happen together.

It was an honor to work with each of you on this gorgeous spring day including my Artisan Events Photo + Video DREAM TEAM: Tina, John, Andrew, Carl and Mike.

You’ll find a link to all the Wedding VIPs at the end of the post but a special shout out and thank you to Jesse Deckard and Bliss Weddings & Events is due. I always know I’ll witness amazing event design creativity and perfect planning that warms my high-attention-to-detail heart working with you all. You inspire + amaze and I adore you and your work so much!

Vanessa + Rob—thank you so much for having me and my entire team. It was a fun and gorgeous day—we’re thrilled you shared it with us!
