Family is important for Erin and Dustin. Family is what made this wedding extra special. 44 years ago, in 1971, Erin's parents walked down the very same aisle for their wedding (You'll see one of their wedding photos in this blog post. You'll know it when you see it.) Erin's grandfather has a special tree out back (we photographed them under it). We recreated a photo of Erin and Dustin running out of the church, with rose petals being tossed at them, just like her parent's photos. Besides that, it was just a wonderful day! There were giddy little flower girls, a group of ladies who were obviously long time great friends, huge smiles (Erin has the best smile ever!), lots of love, fabulous people and just beauty everywhere I turned.
On to the photos.

The AMAZING vendors.
