It’s beyond me how it’s already AUGUST! It feels like just yesterday that Jess contacted me (which was back in February) and now here we are just a few days PAST their wedding day already! Being it was August wedding (think humid, warm weather) Austin + Jess truly had a beautiful day filled with a steady cool breeze in the shade that gave our portrait time outside a break from the hot temps! Ever since working with them during their engagement session, I could see *just* how much Austin + Jess were perfect for each other.. not just in the way they interacted but the way they couldn’t stop SMILING and LAUGHING! (Their bride and groom portraits are proof!) They have the most radiant joy that a person/couple could have and it was so evident on their wedding day. I loved how they spent time with their guests after the wedding, walking and talking with them and personally thanking each and every individual that came to their wedding. Filling up the reception venue with as many friends and family possible, they shared a quite bite to eat.. cut the cake and headed off to Montana!
Austin + Jess, thank you so much for being a bright light of joy and love in this world! You two are truly an incredible couple and I’m so thankful to have walked the “wedding journey” with you both! I hope Montana is treating you well!! Congrats again, Mr. + Mrs. Horning! <3
