I love weddings in the woods. Ashley & Michael had the most beautiful ceremony. Scripture in frames, tied to trees, lead the way to the ceremony.  The Bride walked down a lantern lit aisle to her Groom. And under a beautiful arbor, made from birch tree branches, they proclaimed their vows.

I witnessed possibly the most laughter I have ever seen on a wedding day! So much joy, celebration, and authentic emotions from not only the Bride & Groom, but also their family and friends.
