Elizabeth & Kevin | Wedding07.06.12

He waited … and waited. Kevin knew he wanted to make a good “first” impression with Elizabeth, or Biz as her friends call her, after they met through mutual friends, but she was dating someone else. So, he waited.

Months later, as fate would have it, Kevin sprained his ankle and ended up in Biz’s physical therapy clinic. His impression of his first impression wasn’t so smooth, but it worked. Biz gave him her card and the rest is history.

“My favorite thing about Kevin is his gentle patience,” she said. “He has the ability to keep me calm and hold me accountable at the same time.”

And Kevin’s favorite thing about Biz? “The fact that she doesn’t want a second-rate marriage and will do whatever it takes to achieve first rate. Also, her loving attitude is great too!”

You two are seriously awesome. I only had to spend 10 minutes with you to see how perfect you are for each other and how much you care about your family and friends. Your wedding was full of love, and it was truly beautiful to witness. I wish you lived closer because I kind of like you guys. :) Best wishes for your first-rate marriage!

Nicole & Chris | Wedding Sneak Peek07.03.12

Nicole and Chris are two of the most beautiful, genuine people EVER. Ever. This wedding was full of everything that really matters: God, family, friends and, of course, each other. It was so hot in Cincinnati on Saturday, but that didn’t stop these two. They were beaming all day! As always, I can’t wait to show you more. :)

Creative Juices: Towers by Bon Iver07.02.12

And continuing with the mellow mood from last month … here’s another song I’ve been editing to every day. The intro is a little long, but stick with it because it’s a beautiful song! :)

I first heard Bon Iver on Ellen, and those of you that know me know that I LOVE Ellen and most of the stuff she puts on her show. I was hooked from that point on. I just love their sound, and especially all the instruments they use to get that sound. Click here to see them perform live.

Happy Monday!
