Missy & Kent

Missy and Kent. If I had to describe them in one word, there is absolutely no way I could possibly do that. Missy and Kent have this beautiful, fun, loving, exciting, adventurous, and infectious relationship. Being around them just makes you happy !

On the day of their wedding, I showed up to their apartment bursting with excitement ! The house was swarming with mimosas, laughter, excited energy, and smiles. This energy and happiness carried throughout the entire day.

You all know I love details, and this wedding was FULL of beautiful, rustic, and thoughtful details. I couldn’t get enough ! Enjoy !
