Wonderful Mallory and Stephen had a beautiful Forest House Lodge wedding last summer that we so loved being a part of! I have not been the best blogger this past year, but when I was putting together the fresh new website and was looking through last years wedding I couldn’t believe I’d missed blogging this one. Mallory and Stephen are some of the loveliest people ever! You may remember their beautiful Auburn Engagement Session that was full of their super cute pup, beautiful light, and lots of love. Their wedding was just as delightful. It was filled with personal touches, heartfelt words, happy tears and big laughs. I loved the beautiful locket Mallory included in her bouquet that had a portrait of her father who had passed away. It was a wonderful way to keep his memory close to her as she got married. Mallory and Stephen we surrounded by people who just adored them. It was a joy to feel their love for these two as they watched them become husband and wife. The photo I took of Mallory’s mother being hugged by her sister in law as she said her vows is one of my most favorite photos I’ve ever taken. I can’t imagine what it is like to watch your child marry – the feelings seem too deep to even comprehend. But, as I get older and my kids get older I find myself looking to the parents of my couples, and witnessing those emotions with wonder and appreciation. It is always such an honor to photograph a wedding. Enjoy a peek at this lovely wedding and get a big ol’ dose of happy!
