We spent an absolutely lovely saturday morning stomping around tall grass, admiring (but not picking) flowers, chasing butterflies and speaking softly to a horse named Hot Rod. The Rose family has a fun and gentle way about them, and it was amazing to see how their daughter was both curious and delicate with even the smallest flower. 001roseblog

Jake + Brianne’s day was magic. They got ready, there were tears, they were married in a lovely ceremony. But there was also the most kick-ass dance ever in a million years. Jake + Brianne were both ballroom dancers in college and they love love love to dance. So do their friends. So today I’m sharing the kick-ass part instead of all the other incredible moments (which by the way there were many). 082_w-wolf-475webOk I can’t help sharing just a few of how incredibly lovely this couple is. 083_w-wolf-480web 084_w-wolf-481web 088_w-wolf-518webOk dance time!402_w-wolf-2243web 407_w-wolf-2266webI would love to be twirled like this. Ben and I can’t dance at all. I mean, we can sway and do a little fake swing action but thats about it.
408_w-wolf-2269webBut this is amazing.
