grandpa’s cowboy hat, a first kiss, and catching fireflies in a jar … this was loren + levi’s wedding

only a few times have we had a couple so totally giddy about becoming husband and wife that they can’t help but jump and dance around like crazy kids after saying “i do.”
loren and levi were one of those.
and who can blame them? these two literally shared their first kiss at the altar!
their wedding was filled with life and whimsey, and their contagious love rubbed off on us and everyone else there.
and most likely, it will rub off on you, too.

A to the freaking MAZING!
ADORE it all! Question though, what’s the name and location of this stunning venue?????

this is so beautiful. two that stick out most to me (aside from the beautiful whimsical sun-kissed ceremony and portrait pictures) are: the one of the two guys laying on the floor with the Bible open. It’s such a real moment, his eyes closed & the gesture of the other guys hands, for whatever reason, seems so mundane and normal, yet really beautiful and real. I also really love the picture of the fan being held up. His body language and the fact he’s holding up a fan tells exactly what the atmosphere was like in that moment. I love it.

The energy and beauty of this day? It’s like you captured it in a mason jar brighter than that firefly. I love you guys and am so infinitely proud of your work.

really beautiful, especially the mason jars for fireflies – but inquiring minds want to know, what is the backstory behind this being their first kiss?

That…. was amazing. What an experience. I felt like I was there. Always beautiful. The oneof the sun setting over there heads to the left of center… *sigh* Your work is unreal and always inspiring. Thanks for sharing as always. :)

[…] wearetheparsons and the smiley face collective I don’t think there is a time I don’t leave either of the blogs feeling completely inspired… or sigh about 12 times. […]
