“You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.”
- Sam Keen

josh and allison have seriously been the sweetest couple in the world to work with.  while I was unavailable for their wedding, having the opportunity to capture their engagement session was truly an honor. the light and locations we used were just beyond perfect for their personalities and style.  I know you’re going to fall in love with a few of them.

randy & margie get [married]

Are we gonna do this or what?
I think you know I like you a lot
But you’re ’bout to miss your shot
Are you gonna kiss me or not?
-Thompson Square-

In the South there is nothing more American than Red Barns, Cowboy Boots and BBQ… So on this festive Memorial Day I wanted to blog Margie and Randy’s rustic Spring Wedding, which epitomized it all.

The start of this wedding season has brought so many happy wishes for my friends, and I have been thrilled to be a part of their wedding days.  Margie and Randy are no exception.  I’ve known Margie for going on 10 years now, and even though our friendship has seen distance it has never seen lack.  My parents also officiated this wedding, so it was definitely a family affair.  I love seeing my parents doing what they do best!

Margie and Randy actually met at church!  Margie was dating another guy and through persistence, Randy talked Margie into a lunch date and won her heart.  These two are the essence of fun, and I’m so glad to see that they bring out the best in each other.

Their wedding day started out as an overcast, almost rainy day, but ended with a glorious sunset and the best Spring weather we’ve had in a long time.  Hope you enjoy their All-American wedding at Anne Springs Field Trial Barn!

Huge thanks to Ann Norment for pinch hitting for me as a great second shooter!
