Mr. & Mrs. Paterson

Despite all the changes leading up to their wedding, Makenna and Dustin were blessed with an absolutely beautiful day to tie the knot! I’m not sure these two will ever seem phased by anything. Smiles, laughter, and so much joy filled this day!!

The girls dressed at Makenna’s childhood home while the ceremony and reception were set up just outside.

Beautiful florals by Bloemen Floral Design. I love every piece of this!!

The sweetest note… this date is actually Makenna’s parents’ anniversary too! Love these photos of her getting ready while her parents’ wedding photo hangs beside her on the wall!

Makenna laughs. I know not all of her guests could come, I know there were other things not quite according to plan. But through every bit of it, you’d find Makenna with a light heart and infectious laugh. So beautiful.

Our family visited Makenna and Dustin before the wedding, and the kids could not get enough of this guy! He made each of them feel seen and special. But I don’t think he saves that just for children. We could easily see his devoted care for Makenna, but also loved the kindness and consideration he showed for everyone. What a pair they are!

It was amazing to see all the handmade tables and carefully curated details, down to Mrs. Shaw’s wedding dress! Something stunning to see, everywhere you turned.

I probably could have photographed these ring bearers all night! Along with the flower girls, they were always stealing the show, but I don’t think anyone was complaining. A full day for them, but what troopers!!

    Dear Makenna and Dustin: Congratulations on your big day. It was quite the success. God bless you both. If it were not for my son being married the same day I would have been there. Your pictures are beautiful. Sounds like you got a great catch and I know he did. Hope to see you sometime and meet Dustin. Bless you both. Love and hugs. Aunt Sharon
