JESSICA + DYLAN // emotional + warm fall Haue Valley wedding

It’s hard to find the words to describe this day. This magical Sunday at Haue Valley was more than just a wedding. It was a dance party in the time of COVID and an explosion of happy tears. It was the surreal experience of witnessing one of my dearest childhood friends starting her greatest adventure and an unexpected reunion with my second family. Put simply, Jessica and Dylan’s wedding was that sweet sensation when everything feels right with the world.

Weather that was absolutely perfect, even in November.

Jacob beaming, skipping done the aisle after gaining a mom.

A collection of toasts that could not have been sweeter.

It’s always special to photograph a friend. Even more so when for their wedding. Especially when you’ve been in each other’s lives longer than you can even remember. But there is one thing that will never leave my memory: this perfect day.

Congratulations Mr. + Mrs. Wagner!
