Erika + Dusten: A Wolf Mountain Wedding

This couple is our modern day princess and prince charming. They chose Wolf Mountain Vineyard to celebrate their future together on a sunny yet chilly day in November. The bride is of Spanish decent and wore a traditional mantilla and carried her Catholic rosary wrapped around the base of her bouquet. The bridesmaids wore shades of purple and brown. After the ceremony the party moved inside where there was salsa music and dancing. The couple ended the night making their getaway in an old army style jeep, and each guest departed with the gift of one "s'more" happy ending! Thank you both for a beautiful night!! :) Thank you Team Lytlefoto and Wolf Mountain Vineyards! xo

Rebecca + Ann: love, adoration, and marriage

Rebecca and Ann's was my first same-sex wedding ceremony that I've ever photographed. When meeting with these two beautiful women, their genuine adoration and respect for the other was obvious. True love is hard enough to find...they had found it in each other and that is to be celebrated without stereotype. I stood, with camera in hand, as the groom's sister toasted her best friend and brought me to tears with a story of courage and redemption. This was the first time a speech has brought me to tears, and all I could feel was a love for life and standing tall in the face of adversity. I am so grateful to have been a part of their beautiful big day, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness together-to always have and to always hold. Elly B Events, what a wonderful and beautiful collection of details! xo
