Both the bride and groom went to high school together AND high school with me. So I’ve basically known them forever, they’re awesome people, and they are SO NICE. Friends, meet Tim. (Well, Tim’s neck. But you’ll see the rest of him soon).

The Madison has a lot of nooks and crannies that are perfect for little photo opportunities.

Krissy’s mama gave her away, and I just love the emotion in this shot.

Krissy + Tim wrote their own vows, which I always consider equal parts sweet + brave. It is NOT easy to express your feelings about each other to a room full of people, but these two did so flawlessly.
