“They were recently engaged, and I convinced them to go on a fall adventure with us, which incidentally turned into an engagement shoot. Not only for their engagement, though—at the end of the shoot, the two of them got down on one knee and proposed to me to be their wedding photographer. I said yes!”—Gretchen, Hannah & Aleah‘s photographer

Today’s Story 

“Rain was predicted for our wedding day, and we were both so nervous, but when the time came and we had to make a choice to stay under cover and play it safe or take a chance and do things our way, we chose our way. We made it to the vows when the rain started to fall. Even though we had both spent so much time being afraid of the storm, when it hit it was like the pressure of making our wedding perfect just washed away.”—Dani & Melanie

Today’s Wedding Detail

Julie & Laura‘s impeccable Chicago reception featured succulents, chevrons, and s’mores for dessert.

Today’s Story

“We had unbelievable support from our family and friends who helped us with many DIY projects that added a very warm and personal touch to our setting. My brothers hiked into the woods to find birch logs and together built our archway that we were married under. It was a labour of love.”Mariah & Natacha 

Today’s Wedding Detail

We’ve already spent plenty of time exclaiming over Katie & Hannah‘s tattooed wedding rings, but we also love their not-quite-matching short lace dresses.

Today’s Story

“‘You’re going to be my wife!!!’ That was her pick-up line four years ago that still causes laughter to erupt from deep within. Seriously though, in January 2012 I went to DC to cover the 2nd inauguration of President Obama and in between doing the journalist thing, I hung out and connected with new people. Tajia saw me and inquired with my friend Dana, rather boldly, ‘WHO IS THAT?!?!?!’ Our friendship started there. We even tried to ‘date,’ but it didn’t work because she was full of it and I wasn’t ready… It wasn’t our time. Instead, she intently stood by, being the watchful friend, and checked on me occasionally. Whenever I would visit the DC area, we would meet up for dinner and drinks and just hang out. Fast forward to 2015: doing one of her watchful friend checks, she asked me if I was ready to be her wife yet, and then went on to tell me that she was coming for me… as she had planned to move to Dallas soon. She did, and well… I’m—we are telling this story! After a year-long engagement, we will relocate back to Washington, DC following our wedding.” —Tajia & Margaret

Today’s Story

“We moved in together by February with my three kids and their dad, who has become one of Monika’s best friends. We are all very happy together and I love that our family is so unique. My kids absolutely adore Monika and she is so great with them. 

In September of 2015, Monika surprised me for my 40th birthday by taking me to Maui! As part of the surprise, she made me a board with 40 tins on them that each held little gifts or notes about what we were going to do in Maui. Tin number 31 held my engagement ring and at midnight on our one year anniversary, she proposed to me on the beach, under the stars in Maui. It was so magical and beautiful!”Monika & Autumn

Today’s Story

“We had first fallen in love watching JP and Ashley’s season of The Bachelor and the “rose” had become our symbol. She asked me, “Alisa, will you accept this rose?” At this point, I was crying and shaking. Then she took my hands in hers and said she never wanted to spend another day without me. Next, she got on bended knee, presented me with a gorgeous sparkling diamond ring, and asked me to marry her. I was still speechless when a guy from the back of the very crowded, cheering, clapping restaurant yelled, “Say yes, already!” So I did…” —Cindy & Alisa

Today’s Wedding Detail

Alex & Erica‘s THREE weddings include all kinds of great details, but one of our favorites was from their Northern California commitment ceremony at the county fairgrounds. According to Erica, “Our table decorations/favours were homemade jars of jams, tomatoes, salsa, beets—anything red!—made and decorated by our family and friends!” The favors matched their decor and helped showcase the support of the group of friends and family that helped make their celebration a success.
