Lisa and Brad’s Grove Park Inn wedding was simply spectacular! We battled the rain all day but this couple didn’t let that dampen their spirits. Brad and Lisa were tons of fun to be with and even had some surprise guests make an appearance on their big day. Our favorite part of the day was when the couple brought out their three pups after the ceremony. It was a huge surprise to the family and guests and the smiles and greetings abounded! After all, their “kids” had to be a part of the celebration too!

Congrats to Lisa and Brad as they start their new journey together.

Lisa and Brad found the majority of their wedding professionals through Verge Events and Studiowed! Studiowed is a professional, complimentary service where any bride and groom can meet wedding professionals and plan their wedding. The company is made up of groups of professionals in every single category of vendors needed to make a wedding day happen. This service is especially great for couples who are from out of town since all the meetings can happen in one spot.

I should also mention that we professionals have worked so much together that we all know how to work WELL with each other. The day always runs super smooth when you have professionals that work well together.

Even though one of our close friends, Teresa, works for Dr. Doug, we had never met him or Sam until their wedding day this past Sunday. Sam had contacted us months ago to photograph their very small wedding. I had no idea we were in for such a special treat. We adored their family-only wedding!

Doug has three daughters and Sam has one son. It was so beautiful to see two families merge as one. The kids were loooooads of fun and very excited. As you can tell by the photos they have such amazing personalities. NOTE: the shots of them covering their faces when Sam and Doug kissed was completely REAL and NOT staged in anyway. They were genuinely grossed out. ๐Ÿ™‚ They helped bring a lot of laughs through out the day.

Being “moment junkies” Michael and I are so excited to share some of these amazing, real, moments.
