A year after meeting, Becky & Alan quit their jobs and traveled the world. They experienced dozens of cultures and took it all in together. They told me they didn't argue once and since getting together, they've received very few "noes" from the universe. Travel makes such an impact on long-term life--getting out of your comfort zone, seeing how other people live, gratitude, laughter, stripping yourself down to the bare minimum, relying on the only person you know--it broadens our perspectives, creates strong bonds & is incredibly grounding. It's a great way to discover what you really need in life. After spending time with Becky & Alan, I realized that although most of their relationship was spent apart (grad & law school), they are incredibly close & connected. They have shared rich experiences and immersed themselves in wisdom & culture; together, they live life fully. Cheers to their wedding at Atwood Ranch this summer!
Steph says that if there is such a thing as love at first sight, her first encounter with Brendan was as close as it gets. Layer on the fact that it was also St. Patrick's Day and their love story becomes even richer. Steph was just in town for the weekend and after the two met, they say time stood still, the day became a euphoric blur, they threw caution to the wind--all those electric components that can appear when one falls in love. Steph extended her time in NYC for a few days but days after she returned to Chicago, Brendan was on a plane to see her. It's such a great story, isn't it? But it gets even better. Three years later, all of those early-love elements are present in their relationship. Steph & Brendan look at each other with an expression that says holy moly, I am falling for you more and more right now. They nuzzled each other throughout their entire ceremony and we all watched in romantic awe. I have a feeling that decades from now, people will still ask them how long they've been dating.

Erin & Nick (& their friends) are so expressive and ready to play. I laughed so much and was wowed by them over and over. Erin & Nick crafted a wedding that emphasized friends & family, lingering conversations, fearless dancing & lots of laughs. (Cornerstone was the perfect spot--love those strolling chats while the fog rolls over the hills.) It was also incredibly creative and true to them. (How about the door they used in the vineyard as an additional backdrop??) I could sense that they were present in every moment and connected with everyone there with a sweet ease, not rushed obligation. To boot, it was a beautiful, breezy day which added to the dolce vita ambiance. It doesn't get much better.

Amanda & Luke wow me every time I see them. They have a connection that is so unspoken and magnetic, it's as if everyone else disappears when they lock into each other. Needless to say, their wedding was full of gorgeous emotions & tenderness that every guest was privileged to witness. It was raw and spectacular and stopped me in my tracks multiple times. Being in the presence of such palpable love really gets me. I adore these guys. :)
Amanda & Luke's wedding was Bee Green and they had one of my favorite eco-elements: the kegorator from their house that dispensed the delicious Moose Drool. Cheers to these two lovelies and green weddings! Much love.

Katelyn & Andie welcomed nineteen guests to their intimate Kenwood wedding. Everyone played a role in the tenderness of the day; the intimacy was spectacular. Katelyn's parents drove from San Diego with a caravan of incredible found items--and family heirlooms--that they discovered while doing months of wedding antiquing: mismatched vintage tablecloths; vintage linens strung around every inch of the depot and hung on the back of every chair; delicate floral china and glassware and the most incredible invitation I've seen: it was printed on a linen. The day was all about family and their tight circle of friends & everyone took such sweet care with each other--even Katelyn was doing her sister's hair up until the last possible minute. This was truly a collaboration of love. I was honored to be there.
