Elizabeth and Steve chose the most stunning fall day to say I Do! I mean the whole week before it was calling for rain, and I think we even had a few drops threaten us until after the ceremony. We arrived at Elizabeth’s parents house to a flurry of people getting ready and chasing kids and you could feel the excitement in the air. Once Elizabeth was in her dress I got to ride with her and her parents in the limo over to the church. Steve was nervously waiting for his bride, but I’m pretty sure as soon as he saw her walking towards him down that aisle all nerves were a distant memory.
After they officially became husband and wife the sun came out and cast a perfect glow on them throughout their entire portrait session! French Creek looked amazing as always, and we had the most beautiful sky as a backdrop for these two. All too soon it was time for Elizabeth to be bustled and them to be announced into their reception. The night was filled with love and laughter and dancing and joy. Elizabeth and Steve, it was perfect!

So much love.
Back to the girls.
And we couldn’t pass up one last shot of the two of them by the pond, the tree and the spring house.
What an incredible cake. Plus check out the wood slab it is on, finished by Steve and his dad. Love all their little details, and used some as a prop for their rings.
