Samantha + Nolan {married}

Sam & Nolan’s day was simply amazing. It was full of emotion, yet totally laid back. Super fun & crazy, yet we stuck to schedule. I’m sure it had a lot to do with the Bride & Groom being so laid back & able to just let the day unfold. I could also tell their bridal party & family were completely supportive & truly cared so much about this couple. I can definitely say I had tears welling up more than once during this wedding. Thanks for letting me share this day with you two! Enjoy the first of many more images to come of your wedding day!

The energy in the room when she was getting ready was so great, it was so hard to choose just a few photos for this post!

I love this moment between Mother & Daughter. Mom just leaned in like she wanted to remember the moment forever, so sweet.

Nolan had his hand written vows with him while getting ready, and he kept reading them over & over. Moments like this is why I encourage brides & grooms to have the “getting ready” images captured.

The Bride & Groom & wedding party all wore TOMS, and Sam had the idea for this shot. It turned out super cute!
