Betty and Adam's wedding day was the absolute best way to end the 2016 wedding season!!! The talk of the day was the weather...

"The sun is shining, there's no way it's going to rain!"

"I mean, yea, it's cloudy now, but it's still SO nice out."

"Um, do you guys see that big black cloud rolling in?"

Thank the heavens, we didn't feel the first drop of rain until just as the groom smashed the glass and kissed his bride! As soon as everyone was inside, the skies opened up and unleashed a torrential downpour. Yet another reason why I love First Looks...all of the portraits were already done! Phew! Everyone hates on cloudy days, but the clouds create the most beautiful soft lighting for portraits. I think we used just about every spectacular view at the Lake Valhalla Club! Betty & Adam, congratulations you two! :)

How stinkin' CUTE?! They are mini J. Crew models!

Sparklers are like instant-magic! Betty & Adam, you look like you belong in a fairy-tale, and I hope you felt like it too! Thank you both so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding adventure and for the sweet surprise gifts!! We couldn't have imagined a more perfect way to celebrate the end of an incredible wedding season!!! <3
