I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

All the planning, DIY projects, coordinating, cake tastings, and swatch matching that goes into planning a wedding really can’t compare to what is taking place on that day. So, while I can’t EVER get enough of over-the-top details, centerpieces and decor, there is much to be said for the wedding intangibles–the emotions and moments that we rely on our photographers to capture.

So when Blue Window Creative sent this wedding over to me, my jaw dropped. While putting the post together, I felt so emotional looking at these images, I was almost brought to tears. This wedding is exactly what I imagine for myself one day, because each picture is a moment. Blue Window captured beautifully the emotion and celebration of the day and you can literally see the bonds–not just between Chelsea and Adam–but also between all of their family and friends. There is love here in every single one of these pictures: from the pre-wedding festivities, to the ceremony, to the family style meal, to the vineyard party after. I had a hard time choosing my favorite images!

Moral of the story: Consider choosing a photographer that is great at capturing moments. It’s harder than you think, and more important than you can imagine!
