Tina and Chris | 06.13.14 | Blue Dress Barn Wedding

Love love love shooting at the Blue Dress Barn. This sweet couple was married there this past June. Tina was an absolutely stunning bride and was glowing with joy the whole day. We started the day in St. Joesph at the The Boulevard Inn, which is very lovely itself! As June was this year the weather was perfect and a great party was had. Here are a few of my favorites from their day.


That last image is possibly my favorite dance floor image of all time. It makes me giggle ever time!
