Her fingers gently tore the paper back from the package, and as she opened the lid of the box she caught her first glimpse of his gift for her. An eternity necklace. A promise of a love that would last for infinity. She wore that necklace down the aisle that day, and it hung from her neck as she too promised her forever to him. And there was no better pendant to have laid near her heart, no better symbol for the promise they made. That they would face the world together, and do all things with love, from that day to eternity . . . .

Maddie and Alex are married! They had a beautiful wedding day at the ever so lovely Powel Crosley Estate this past weekend. We loved the soft color palette of silver and lilac, and how perfectly the hues meshed with the timelessness of their venue. Maddie looked stunning in a beaded Sottero and Midgley gown, and Alex’s reaction when he saw her walk down the aisle was so incredibly sweet it was hard not to get a little teary right along with him. After a ceremony beneath the trees of the property, the two of them were joined by their pup Bentley for a few pictures before we wandered the grounds for portraits.
Guests were seated throughout the various rooms of the Crosley for dinner and toasts, and then afterwards an epic dance party commenced beneath the tented patio. Everyone visited the ice cream bar to cool off between songs, and the entire night was such an awesome celebration of two families becoming one.
Maddie and Alex, thank you so much for inviting us to document your best day ever! We wish you guys an infinite amount of happiness in the all the days to come.
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
