Amanda + Paul “Amanda and Paul could be getting married anywhere” he said as he addressed the congregation. “They could have had a destination wedding on a beach somewhere, but instead they decided to marry in this church.”  I stood on the left side of the rows of pews and smiled.

Lauren and Jim’s love story is a modern day fairy tale. A chance meeting, globetrotting and even a quirky animal side kick. (I’m looking at you, Ralston!) Together they are exploring every inch of this planet while balancing loving on their family and friends and being total go getters in their careers. Talk about a power couple! They are truly best friends and have a blast together no matter the situation.  I saw a glimpse into this while we did their engagement session last fall. It was FREEZING outside but despite the low temps, these two had smiles on their faces the entire time. In fact, that’s .. them. They radiate positivity, fun and warmth and their wedding was the perfect reflection of that.

I dialed her number and held my breath. The introvert in me squirmed a little as I prepared my paper and pen, ready to take notes. Before I knew it, two.. maybe three hours had gone by and I had hardly written a thing. From the first few minutes of the phone call, I knew immediately that Meghan was an extraordinary person and even if I didn’t get to be her wedding photographer, I wanted to be her friend.

Don’t you just love it when things are mean’t to be? Kenzi and I had emailed back and forth trying to work out a day that would work for her engagement session, but with busy schedules all around it was proving to be a difficult task! But when Kenzi suggested last Thursday – which happened to be perfect for us too – we couldn’t get it on the calendar fast enough! Everything, even the beautiful weather, fell into place. It was as though it was meant to be all along.

I am so excited to share McKenzie and Nathan’s wedding with you today! I’ve written about them a couple of times on the blog already, (see those here and here) but in case you’re not familiar with this incredible couple – buckle up! I adore these two! And I’m not alone, their wedding day was filled with tons of love from their friends and family. It was such a sweet day and celebrating with them was the best!

Josh and Morgan both attended Ball State University – so it made perfect sense for them to have their wedding at the L.A. Pittenger Student Center on campus! And wow what a day it was!
