I’m not sure how else to describe the experience, but to use the word “Dreamy”.

Megan and Bradley’s wedding was dreamy in every possible way.

Not only that, but the earthy environment was the perfect setting for all the emotions that were felt as they officially blended their lives together and their families.

Megan and Bradley planned an intimate and small romantic wedding at Phipps Conservatory where the main focus was their love and family.

It was important to them to have plenty of time with me alone to have bridal photos taken. They wanted to celebrate their connection and love as much as possible with photos that they could cherish forever.

Their love story is one of the first things that attracted me so much to them.

They found each other online and relocated to be closer to each other. Having blended their families and kids, they soon after got pregnant and their beautiful baby girl was present in this celebration.

An intimate wedding celebration is often times perfect for those who want to spend most of their time with their partner and a the most important people in their lives.

Megan and Bradley allocated the right amount of time for us to create the most dreamy and romantic moments after their ceremony.
