Holly + Mike | Vintage Modern Wedding in The Woods

Y’all – GEAR UP for this one. Stunning details, moody skies, and beaming smiles for the new Mr and Mrs Freeman, all day long.

When Holly shared her story of meeting and starting to date Mike, well-known as Shooter, we laughed ’til we cried and we knew we needed to work with this couple.  Ask her to share it all with you — you’ll be so glad you did.  Onto their Engagement Session in a stunning rock quarry in the most unlikely of locations, where they stole our hearts even more – nonstop heart eyes, guys. NONSTOP.  Not only are they so fun to hang with, but their love is on fire and photographing it is a dream.

“Holly told me that when she was growing up when her dad would tuck her in at night he would ask her “what’s the most important thing in life?” and she would smile and say “to get laughs.” I love that about her.  She’s positive when I can’t be.  She puts value in the small things that most people ignore.  She knows the value of handmade items because her mother taught her how to sew.  She is kind and beautiful. When I realized she was my best friend, I knew I didn’t want to even try to live life without her.”

“It was as if after we met, we both were like, ‘”Oh hey, there you are. Wanna hang out forever? Good. Me too.”  It was just so easy with him – he was funny and honest and trustworthy, and he pursued me at my pace. I’m a pretty independent gal, pretty stubborn, always late – Mike lets me be my absolute self, never tries to change me.  There were also smaller things that made a big difference – when we’d have an argument (which, no joke, are so few and far between) – he would make it very clear that it was just that – a disagreement.  It didn’t mean he was going anywhere.   And watching how well he treated everyone around him just made me fall deeper in love with him.  Mike Freeman loves people.  He loves his family so much and has great friends all over the country. He can walk into any room and strike up a conversation with a stranger, find common ground, and walk away with an amazing story and friend.  After he met my friends, they were his, too.  He not only loves me well, he loves the people I love – and that means the world.”

The way they speak about each other truly translates into how they treat each other, and we value that so much.  Their new marriage is already an inspiration to us and being a part of their day is something we will always cherish.  We’re stoked to call them friends, and honored to tell the story of their wedding.  Narrowing down their photos for this post was torturous, so family and friends: please ask them to pass on the full gallery in the coming days.

Enjoy these highlights, and soak up the love.
XO
