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 …

Pam and Tom immediately knew what they wanted for their wedding. A small, intimate ceremony at the beautiful Botanical Gardens on a Thursday afternoon, with their closest people and of course, their huge St. Bernard dog, Cooper! And it truly was a perfect moment. As I watched them hold hands (and a leash), I saw …

February 26th I found myself at The Sterling at Arrowhead for Kelly & Chris’s wedding. They are a couple who knew what they wanted immediately after meeting and I knew how special this moment would be for them. Kelly looked stunning in her dress and Chris was all pumped up, I think ready for this …
