These are not your traditional wedding day photos…but I am SO excited to share them and share that Morgan and Brendan ARE married now!!  This lovely couple of mine had to make some changes to their plans like most 2020 couples…and they made such a fun change!  They decided they were going to travel to Arkansas with their very closest family and friends, and get married on a HOUSE BOAT!  These two grew up together, and their families have been intertwined since they were literally toddlers…and their parents told me that this is a way their families traveled together in the past!  So honestly, it was just perfect for them.

SO they had me meet them the very day they began traveling to take some pre-wedding photos of them all dressed up and looking amazing!  And I had SO much fun with them!  Morgan and Brendan just wrap people into their light spirited fun when you are around them, and it’s amazing.  They are planning a part II to their wedding next fall, and I absolutely cannot wait to see them with their larger group of loved ones because I know that fun and joy will only be amplified!

So I’m sharing some favorites from their first look, family portraits, and portraits of the NEW Mr and Mrs!!!

This was a MUST DO shot for them, and I love it!! I can’t wait to see this party in action for a longer day next year!!
