I really don't even know where to begin with this wedding. Of course there are the hold-your-breath beautiful images that our friend Ryan Ray captured. And the this-can't-be-real farm backdrop complete with perfect horses and dressed up vintage bicycles. But then there is also this bride and this groom. Who are so madly in love I almost think I should look away. But then I can't. Because they are just so lovely and the wedding that they designed is proof that if you simply follow your heart, the rest will fall into place. Click here to see even more.

From the Bride... I know its cliche to say, but our wedding really was a dream come true! I'm the girl who's been planning my wedding since I was eight, and my love of weddings and art came into play in my career, a wedding photographer! I feel so blessed to find a man with the same passions and helped so much with wedding planning! We wanted our wedding to first be intimate and romantic, cozy and definitely us. Having the wedding at my grandparent's property was such a blessing, not only was it beautiful and the perfect backdrop, but it was comfortable and my most favorite place to be.

We kept our guest list to mostly family and few close friends and wed under our "Family Tree" I honestly made myself so nervous all Summer thinking about the ceremony and how nerve wracking it would be to up in front of people declaring our love. When the day came I so incredibly happy and beaming and the ceremony ended up being my most favorite part of the day!! The sun was shining through the trees, Jeremiah had tears in his eyes, I had never felt more beautiful or loved than that moment.

Before we even started dating Jeremiah texted me a random quote, not knowing if I'd understand it was from You've Got Mail, but I most definitely did, and I knew I was in love with him already. We tied in our love of that movie by having "You've Got Mail" cards at each place setting for our guests to write us notes and drop them off as our guest book. It was so fun going through them the next day! I also walked down the aisle to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Harry Nilsson, the same song at the end of the movie. If I could change ONE thing about our wedding, I would've included our puppy, Brinkley!
