I‘m SO excited to share this THREE-PART blog post for a fun, easy going couple that I have truly loved getting to know over the past year!  Like so many other couples, Morgan and Brenden had to make a new plan last year and they truly blew it out of the park– every step, from my view, was perfect for them!  I debated which photos I wanted to share with this post, but it just made sense to share my favorites from each interaction I have gotten to have with them as a part of their wedding celebration.  Morgan and Brenden are fun loving, easy going, warm, and casual.  In the very best way, what you see is what you get– they are just easy to be around and extremely easy to love.  Brenden immediately welcomes you into his fold from the moment he knows you, and Morgan has this most beautiful engaging laugh and smile…they are just fun to be around and I could tell at each of these sessions that everyone they meet loves them.    I am going to start by sharing a few favorites from their engagement session last year– it started focused around golf, a passion they share and take part in multiple times a week!!

A couple of months later, we got to take their formal wedding portraits before they headed to a houseboat with their closet people and got married!  It was a perfect fall morning and I truly loved having this unrushed, easy time to do these photographs.  As casual and easygoing as I try to make. wedding day, there are still schedule restrictions and it was so nice to get to do this so simply!  I truly love these photos.

And then this past weekend, they got to spend a day golfing with their friends and an evening dancing to a band they love at their reception with their loved ones!!  It was casual and beautiful, and a perfect one year celebration of their marriage.  I love how they weaved their love of golf into each of these days, and just spent time with their friends and family…it’s what a marriage celebration should be all about!

I can literally hear Morgan’s laugh when I look at these! Congrats on one year, you two!  I am so happy for you both and loved being a part of it!
