Eden & Sam

September 10, 2020

An Intimate Manea Vineyard Wedding in Paducah Kentucky

What a JOY it was to be a part of Eden & Sam’s wedding day! We photographed Sam’s TWO cousins’ wedding within the past 4 years and now it was his turn to marry his bride. I’ve said this before but one of the greatest honors we have is when we get to photograph the wedding of a family of a past bride or groom. Staying connected with families as they grow is one of our favorite parts of the job.

Eden & Sam have been together for over 4 years and when COVID started, they feared their September wedding would be effected – Thank God it wasn’t because their day was pure PERFECTION!

Every detail was beautiful, everyone was so kind and sweet, and we are just so thrilled to be shooting weddings during these unprecedented times!

Eden & Sam, THANK YOU for allowing us to share in your day! It was so beautiful and we are very much in love with your images.
