When these two contacted me for their beautiful wedding at one of my favorite locations, I was down. Frank Fetch Park is one of the most gorgeous spots in German Village…but then they sweetened the deal. They were breaking their wedding up into two days!! Ceremony with close friends and family on Friday, reception to follow on Saturday. BRILLLLLLIANT!!!!! Enjoy my faves from their special weekend.

DAY 1 // Frank Fetch Park & Lindey’s

DAY 2 // Brothers Drake Meadery

I can’t even begin to thank you and tell you how much FUN I had meeting your sweet family, friends and celebrating your love. Many warm wishes. xoxo

My heart. These are two of just the sweeeeeeeetest kids! We met them shortly after moving into our neighborhood and I was so excited when Jamie asked for a family portrait session. Enjoy all of these smiles!!

This Lily just melts me. EVERY time I see her, she points at me and says “Leo’s mommy.” In the sweeeeeetest little voice!

One of my faves! 

Evan and those baby blues!! <3
