Wine + Navy Lumber Exchange Wedding

Gretchen + Matt had such an amazing first day of September! I just loved the look and feel of their Lumber Exchange Wedding. The Fountain Room was where many of their events were held, but there were so many great options at this locations for different looks. From the marble staircase for the first look to the top of the parking ramp and of course colorful Bob Dylan wall just around the corner, it was a joy to create beautiful images for these two!

Their looks were each unique and fun, reflecting their personality and style. Gretchen’s dress had AMAZING detail on the back and sleeves and her hair was a cute, sassy pony. Matthew had a dapper vest under his jacket. The girls’ dresses were the with sequins on top and chiffon on the bottom. I haven’t ever seen these dresses before and it was so flattering on each of the bridesmaids!

These two were up for anything, and have the BEST and BIGGEST hearts! Above all what stood out all day long was how were silly and wonderful Gretchen and Matt were with each other, but also very sweet. They wrote their own vows and when I opened their vow book to take a couple of ring shots. I almost fainted is swooning from Matt’s vows. I have a picture below you can’t miss, I couldn’t stop crying laughing reading them. Truly the best ever! They also exchanged gifts and without planning it, each gave the other an engraved Fossil watch. Say what!?! Twinning!

Gretchen and Matt, it was so clear that you two are the perfect pair!!!  I pray you have  adventures together in the years to come. SO MUCH LOVE!

Her Dad’s sweet face! That emotion just gets me everytime! See what I mean friends? The most hilarious + sweetest thing ever! Gold Star Matt! We were having NO fun at all. HA! Just kidding! I love the emotion in Newlywed shots! They had pictures of their pup at each table and I can’t stop laughing over Gretch here!
