Joey wanted no parts of family formals. I honestly love these moments more than everyone smiling cause it’s REAL LIFE PEOPLE.


Ceremony time! Love this portrait that my second shooter Joy took of Melissa and her dad before they walked down the aisle.

The light in the corn crib was SO BOLD AND SO HEAVENLY.

After a few dances we headed outside to take advantage of those last little bits of light..

Speeches are always one of my favorite parts of the day, and Melissa’s sister-cousin killed it!

Melissa’s family is Polish and they did a tradition with bread, salt and two shot glasses – 1 had vodka and 1 had water. Melissa got the water, ha!
