Ryan + Mia, August 2018.


our dearest friends (and former roommates!) are the strongest, most compassionate and loyal people we know. we've loved watching their adventurous life unfold over the years and have been sliding into every conversation (or rather demanding- does it really matter???) how they need to move back to nebraska and guess what?! IT FINALLY WORKED! they moved back a few short months before their due date (see? adventurous.) and though i was happy to have my friends just down the street from us nothing will ever top this experience. i got the phone call around 4:30am that it was time and by 7:15am emery was in their arms after my beautiful friend gave birth to her in their cozy home, surrounded by all the love in the world. 

sweet emery nadyne, what a treasure it was to be a witness to the miracle of your birth. to see your mother use every ounce of beautiful and graceful strength this world has prepared her for to bring you into this world. to see your father love and care and prepare the most loving atmosphere for you to breathe your first breath in. your parents are the best of the best and you are so lucky to have them forever. you were born into a room full of love and i hope you never experience anything less. we are so happy to have you in our lives! all my love, sweet girl.


the most beautiful thing to witness / 

with tears in her eyes and still struck with surprise molly asked juan "wait! are you sure?!" to which juan replied: "molly, are you freaking kidding me?! this is the most sure i've been about anything in my entire life! of course i want to marry you!" the picture below is what happened directly after /

juan planned everything so that molly would feel and know how loved she was. he made sure all of their family was there- including her family who lives 12 hours away. he wanted a photographer, a perfectly beautiful intimate space, he wanted her to feel her best, so she got pampered and her hair and makeup done. when he asked to marry her he listed all of his most favorite things about her. and when they went to facetime her parents to tell them the happy news they rushed in to hug her. they went to celebrate with family at a local restaurant and after came back to ANOTHER surprise of all of her friends waiting to celebrate and share the most beautiful blessings over them. these two are the real deal and we're all better people because of how they love and celebrate others.



Rob + Cecily- you two are full of love and light. what an honor and pleasure it was to be apart of something so special. 


i can’t believe this is my life. THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT! your life, your people. a total celebration of your love! more weddings that are a true reflection of your love, less that follow the 'rules'.

these two are the best out there.
