Thank you Sally Ward and Patrick for opening up your lives and letting me capture it. Your wedding was as emotional, authentic and kind-hearted as you two are. Being able to hear your friends and family share about your love and passion for each other was a treat and I'll always remember the time I spent with you.
Here's a glimpse into their wedding day.

I love when a couple decides to make time to see each other before their ceremony. I respect when couples wait until the ceremony, but one of my favorite and most vivid memories of my wedding was when I saw Jill for the first time. I was able to hold her, kiss her, and spend more time with her on our most important day.
As a photographer, I love capturing a couples first look. The joy, excitement and nervousness is so beautiful. Rachel and Ethan's first chance to see each other was such an emotional moment. I've never seen a groom so excited to see his bride. He couldn't stop from running to her and swinging her in his arms. It was an amazing moment and I am glad I was able to be a part of it.
Rachel and Ethan got married this winter at Ethan's family cabin in the woods of Wisconsin surrounded by close friends and family. Thank you for having me along, you two.
