Kaitlin & Parker

There’s something comforting about riding down the gravel road to Stevenson Ridge. I know the grounds will be beautiful, I know the staff will be genuinely kind and I know the sweetest of couples will be waiting to begin their forever.  Kaitlin and Parker were finally married on the loveliest September day.  After 13 years of life and love, these best friends got to say ‘I do’ under the gorgeous cathedral ceiling of the Lodge.  Nothing but smiles beamed from friends, family and the new Mr. and Mrs.

A little side note… Parker is a fireman.  The reception was full of his colleagues. Great men and women who dedicate their time and lives to insure that our communities are as safe as possible.  I’m thankful for kind people like Parker and all the first responders out there.  You all are truly heroes.  

Kaitlin and Parker, I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. It was an honor and privilege to photograph such a monumental day in your lives.  I hope that honeymoon is nothing but sunshine and memories!  Enjoy this little preview of your big day!  Thank you to Sara of Wolfcrest Photography for beautifully shooting along side me!
