This is one blog post I have been TOO excited to share since well before Torrey & Ellie’s wedding day! It was the greatest honor to capture this day, not only because it was stunning and in the most beautiful location, but because Torrey and Ellie are two of my dearest friends! We met back in college and now we live in the same apartment building and hang out allll the time. Walking through this season of engagement and now marriage with them has been so much fun and such a blessing to my husband Bodie and I!
Going into the wedding day I knew it was going to be a *little* emotional…when I met with Ellie and her mom about the timeline, all three of us cried at some point during the meeting just thinking about the wedding day! And of course, as predicted, the day was full of so much joy and so many happy tears. Pretty much every moment from this day and entire weekend is my favorite, but Torrey’s reaction to seeing Ellie during their first look was priceless (scroll down to see!!).
Torrey and Ellie are just the kind of couple you look at and know are meant to be together. They love each other well and are loved by so many. It was so cool to see all of their friends and family come from near and far (but mostly far…she is from Alaska and he is from Pennsylvania!) to celebrate these two amazing people who deserve it all.
Now excuse me while I get emotional reliving the day all over again!
Thanks to all of the vendors who made this stunning day possible!

Tanya and James are married! Their wedding day was proof that nothing can take away from your marriage, even if your wedding looks different than you originally planned.

I first met Madeline and Chas back in 2018 when they were about to move to Chicago from Dallas, Texas. We did a fun little Chicago couples session for them to announce their move to the city for Chas to attend law school at the University of Chicago. We instantly hit it off and bonded […]
