YellowBird Wedding

because simple is beautiful

I was back at the Avanti Mansion on July 16th for Nicole and Rob’s big day. It was close to sweltering out, but you couldn’t possibly feel uncomfortable around Rob and Nicole.

Intimate and beautiful. That is really all I can say about Abby & Jeff’s wedding on March 6th at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House. They are a beautiful couple, in a beautiful space, with a beautiful love for each other. They knew they wanted to be married and that they only needed the two of …

When the couple is as cute as these two, you don’t mind heading out on cold February 5th for a wedding. Especially when it’s cozy as heck at the Avanti Mansion. I found Allison and Jhon, both beaming and looking super happy. They also seemed pretty relaxed (unless I had a question and then Jhon …

January 15th was special not only because it was my first wedding of 2022, but because I got to share it with an amazing couple that I married once before! During the height of the pandemic, Catherine and Vincent said their “i do’s” in a very intimate setting and this time, they wanted to share …
