Lake Martin Wedding | Michael and Ashley

As I pulled up at the beautiful old lodge at Lake Martin and moved in our suitcases, cameras, and dogs for the week, I knew it was going to be a truly special time. My parents, sister, brother in law, nephew, grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and their kids all drove in from different states to stay together and celebrate the wedding of my cousin Michael and his fiance Ashley. And, as we sat around the fire, took long walks by the lake, held babies, ate great food, and caught up on the past year, I was reminded that the reason weddings are so special, the reason that we all truly celebrate together, is because we all become family. And, family is truly one of the greatest blessings.

So, cheers to the wonderful new couple and to gaining a sweet, beautiful cousin. I am very honored that we were asked to document this wedding weekend. Here are some of my favorites.

Mazel Tov Michael and Ashley! We love you both.
