Pamela & Matt's Georgia wedding was a rustic country affair full of vintage decor & picture-perfect details. Bright sunflowers popped against the brown & ivory hues, while other nods to nature were found throughout the celebration. We absolutely love the couple's guestbook, which was a collection of rocks from Lake Ontario, near Pamela's hometown. Guests wrote their well wishes for the couple on the stones; a great spin on tradition that added a personal touch!

Amidst the chill of winter, we couldn't help but look forward to warmer weather & completely fall in love with Susan & Nate's adorable engagement session. As a city girl residing in Boston, Susan never thought she would have anything in common with a farmer from western New York. When Susan's aunt introduced her to Nate, the attraction was instant. After a year of dating long distance & the promise of getting two puppies, Susan packed up and moved to Nate's farm.
