Matthew & Terra’s Madison Wedding

Matthew and Terra enjoyed a wedding day full of friends and laughter, despite wind and heat!  I met the girls at RZ & Company (gorgeous salon by the way.  and they do good work!).  Since I knew we would be tight on time, I photographed Terra’s beauuuutiful ring in the sunny front window of the salon while the girls got their hair wedding ready!

Back at the church, I was wowed by all of the details that Terra put together.  From the adorable bridesmaids’ jewelry to her absolutely stunning Kate Spade shoes, there was glam and sparkle galore.

Here’s a little behind the scenes of the below.  I saw this shot and realized why I always feel so short – because I am.  Very. short.  Thanks Baker!

Matthew, Terra and I connected very strongly at our very first meeting when we discovered that not only did we share the same faith, but Matthew had grown up near the summer camp that my husband and I met at!!  Its been lovely getting to know these two a little better and a joy to be a part of their God-honoring ceremony.

We snuck photo sessions in throughout the day.  These intrepid souls braved the ridiculous heat and a stiff breeze in order to record the day.
