You may recognize these two babes from their epic adventure session at Civil Society and at Traci’s parents beautiful home- check it out here if you haven’t. Traci and Kaleb’s wedding was one of the last weddings I was able to photograph before the lockdown and boy was it a doozy!! Their modern bohemian meets classic romantic wedding (thanks for these words Angela) was so epic. There were no details left out and Traci and Kalebs vision for their day was literally perfection. From the ode’s to Traci’s childhood growing up fishing with her dad to the beautiful flowers to remember Kaleb’s mother. I mean, how many weddings do you get to incorporate shark jaws draiped with stunning florals??
When I first met Traci and Kaleb at Civil Society brewery I could see right away they were absolutely smitten with each other. Traci was not shy to say she pursued Kaleb after the second she spotted him right there at that very brewery. She knew she wanted to marry him! After spending time with them during their adventure session I really felt a connection with them and was so excited to be their wedding photographer and to meet all their friends and family (which ironically we had several friends in common as well as a few past clients of mine).
On the wedding day I witnessed something that I see a lot at the weddings I get to be a part of. Every single family member, friend and even vendors were just over the moon to see these two marry. Both of their families were so warm and inviting and SO loving. I could see that Traci and Kaleb surround themselves with people who truly love and care for them. The ceremony was very very emotional and I don’t think there was a dry eye anywhere, including mine. Traci and Kaleb were so honored and appreciative of everyone there and just gushed over all of their vendors. This made all of us feel so loved and so happy. This is why we do what we do.
Seeing two people so in love and committing to life together forever is something so special and something I will never take for granted. Being forced to not be able to do my job lately has really solidified that I really love and adore my job. I can’t wait to get back to doing days like this with my amazing clients. Until then, here are photos from this special day that are for sure going to inspire you one way or another.
