I can’t imagine a more beautiful, intentional, genuine, and loving wedding to kick off the season than Bill and Tracy’s. Where to begin…

I suppose to begin, when Tracy and I had our final details meeting, she told me the wedding was going to be just a big ol’ party. That her girls were wearing white bridesmaids dresses, the main decoration were candles, and that there would be a sundae bar. And it only began there.

In addition to what sounded like the most beautiful party, Tracy MADE her dress, inspired by Zac Posen. What started as a stunning, strapless, A-line formal dress for their traditional Catholic mass, converted into a feathered, knee-length party dress for their dance-filled reception.

During the mass, the priest mentioned that between all 4 sets of Tracy and Bill’s grandparents and their parents’ equaled over 300 years of marriage–absolutely incredible!

These two were laidback, fun (they mixed a slow and fast dance for their first song, shocking the crowd!) and a simply gorgeous duo. I am forever grateful they trusted us to capture their most perfect spring day.

A hundred thank you’s and hugs to my assistant Jordyn of Navy Blue Photography!
