Courtney and David's wedding was something out of my wildest dreams (fyi, my wildest dreams consist of cute, intimate, earthy weddings). They planned their destination wedding all the way from Illinois, and though we did encounter a few occupational hazards, it ended up being the most perfect little day. Their wedding holds such a special place in my heart, and was easily one of the most fulfilling days of my career as an intimate wedding photographer. Enjoy!

Shortly after seeing each other for the first time that day, their amazing little ceremony started. It was short, drenched in sunlight, and windy, but so full of happy tears and words from the heart. You could actually feel the love they had for each other reverberate off of the trees and rocks that surrounded them - a feeling you never forget as a photographer, let alone as a loved one in the audience.
Pine Valley Reservoir was just a short drive down the road from their darling VRBO property where the ceremony was held and where their whole wedding party would be staying to celebrate all weekend long! Of course we took advantage of the beautiful scenery and had a little care free adventure/formal session after they sealed the deal.

Their special day is still so vivid in my mind, and only reinforced my obsession with intimate weddings and the cosmic love you experience just by being a part of them. Thinking of doing something similar? Tell me about it, and take me with you!
