"When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life."
I don't know if there is a more fitting quote to describe this vibrant couple. Lexi and Jake laughed and smiled and giggled the entire session, and it was so contagious! I couldn't help but fall in love with their love, especially since their story is so near and dear to my own. Lexi and Jake met country swing dancing, where Lexi told her friend that Jake was the only one in the room she would dance with. Little did she know that her friend knew Jake and promptly walked up and introduced the two of them. Jake is a firefighter and a really good dancer and won over Lexi's heart. They were planning to elope, but Lexi's grandmother has fallen ill with cancer, and they moved up their wedding. I was so honored that they chose me to photograph their wedding, because it will be a county wedding in a barn and that makes my heart SING!! I'm a county girl at heart as well and I am so excited to be shooting her wedding!
Looking ahead at the weather before their bridals, we were worried about rain. We decided to push through and hope for the best. Well, that paid off because we had the most gorgeous light and the whole field at Box Elder Campground in Mantua. We had so much fun walking around that field getting gorgeous portraits and getting to know this adorable couple who is so in love! After finishing the session and driving away, the rain started. Just a few drops, but I'm so glad it held off so we could get these gorgeous photos. Enjoy them down below! And I cannot wait to shoot her wedding and blog about it soon!!
