This wedding is near and dear to my heart because it’s Amy’s, my younger cousin, and her sweet new husband, Jake. The venue, Paradise Springs, is just a mile or two from where we grew up camping together. They opted to go light on the formal posed photography because they wanted to be with their guests more so than off doing a long list of group shots. I love this, not because I mind taking group shots, but because candid photography of guests laughing, crying (her dad had everyone in tears several times that day), and just simply being present (no cell reception for the win) is what I believe they’ll look back on and cherish. Enjoy a few photos of these stunners and their day of celebration.
