Jessica + Derek Toadvine / by chelsie burkhart

GUYYYS! This wedding was  like a fairytale!!

I met Jessica + Derek last year during our engagement session and let me tell ya, they are are photographers dream.  Meeting people who are as beautiful on the inside as they are outside is rare <3. Working with these two was so easy. They are laid-back, genuine, and humble.

Their wedding day took place at Rustic Acres Farms. One of the coolest things about this wedding is that Jessica's mom did most of the styling & florals. Her brother made alot of the centerpieces himself, and the rest of the family helped execute the whole thing! They spoke their own wedding vows under a wispy willow tree in front of their closest friends and family. We couldnt have asked for a better August day with mid 70's temperatures and a clear skies!  They shared a family style dinner on the wrap around deck of the venue. I watched as they laughed and stared at each other for the first time as husband and wife. I can tell how much these two love each other by those small intimate moments. It's like those cinematic moments where there are tons of people around, so much going on, yet the only person that the other see's is their loved one.  That is exactly how Jessica + Derek were and have been each time i've met them. Its was so much fun to work with them and i'm so excited they chose me to be their photographer.

How sweet they are <3 <3
