From the first meeting with Chris and Kayla I immediately knew a few things for sure: Kayla is beautiful, kind, and sweet and Chris has personality for days... and, boy, does he love her. After seeing them together through my lens at their engagement session I was so excited to shoot their wedding.
This day was emotional (I cried when they said their own vows to each other), fun, and relaxed. Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Red Barn in Moundsville, WV.
Kayla and Chris sure are surrounded by some really great people. I had a lot of fun with their family and friends. I know they will have the happiest life together, and I hope I have captured all the love in these photos. Here are a few of my favorites...

Thank you Chris & Kayla for just being you and for hiring me and giving me the honor of photographing your big day. There are SO MANY photos - I honestly could have picked hundreds to share. I hope you love them & I hope each time you look at them you are reminded of your beautiful day.
Lots of Love,
Katie and Matt have tied the knot! Their wedding was my first wedding of the season and we were all praying (and making back-up plans) about the forecasted rain.
It was drizzly for the most part, but the skies cleared a bit for the outdoor photos. I had entirely too much fun with Katie, Matt, and their bridal party.
The ceremony was held at Our Lady of Peace Church, the bridal party portraits were taken at Stifel Fine Arts Center (and a few where they first met-the 19th Hole), and the reception was at the White Palace.
Watching the way Katie and Matt interacted with their friends, family, and baby, Benji, was my favorite part about shooting their big day. You can just feel all of the love and emotion when you are around these two. What a great day!
Here are a few of my favorites...
it was a little windy, but this photo shows how fun Katie is --I just love her personality
That time Katie drank the Groom and Groomsmen under the table! I love that they had fun with this.
A family tradition...
The winners of the Anniversary dance... they have been married the longest!
There are seriously so many photos of the fun, hugs, kisses, dancing, and laughter that took place on this day.... I'll save some for Mr. + Mrs. Ford to share. Thank you Katie, Matt, and their family and friends for such a fun day. Congratulations!
Lots of Love,
West Virginia Wedding, Family, & Lifestyle photographer
