Erin + Jake


I have been waiting to show the world this wedding since we photographed it last Thursday….so hold on tight folks because I could gush about Erin + Jake all day long! :) They are both spunky, genuine and not to mention beautiful people that are honestly, madly and deeply in love! They met out in DC (where Jake had been stationed since he is in the Marines…hence the awesome dressed blues attire!) and the rest has been history.

Walking around the gorgeous grounds of Camrose Hill Farm with them on their big day was nothing short of fun….real smiles, passionate kisses and giggling moments are spontaneous between the two and they are the most laid back couple in this world. Surrounded with their closest family and friends the day was just a *perfect* way to start their new life as husband and wife!

The backdrop of this gorgeous wedding was gardens, sculptures, old bed frames, billowing trees, old barns, and flowers flowers flowers galore…..I only dream of living in a space like this.

*GORGEOUS ALERT* Erin was absolutely radiant and stunning the entire day…Jake was in awe! :)
It certainly is *very cool* that Jake serves as an active Marine! I was thrilled that he chose to wear his dressed blues and show off how stellar he is in that uniform—hats off to Jake for being a Marine and serving our country!!
What a family, huh!?!?!? Ava is a simply GORGEOUS 4 year old and they are one smokin’ family if you ask me! :)
The wedding party couldn’t have been better…
Ms. Ava has everyone in stitches right as we were gathering family for photos…she grabbed little Logan’s cheeks with her cute, girlie, finger-nail-painted hands, pulled his head towards hers and gave him the biggest kiss on the lips I have EVER seen from a 4 year old!!! I think that nearly everyone standing around saw it and literally burst into tears with laughter out of her aggressiveness with little Logan! :)
*this moment made my day!*
one of my favorite moments after the ceremony….*gosh, so cute*

And everyone knows that I can’t resist the golden rays of light at sunset…… :)
Um…yeah, Erin you are STUNNING!
The rest of the evening not only included a smore-friendly bon-fire but a hoppin party that kept guests giggling the night away with the newlyweds! :)
Jake and Erin…I am head to toe thrilled that I was able to play a role in your wedding day and I am stoked for your new journey out in San Diego! I wish you many warm memories, spontaneous nights and days filled with laughter and true joy as you start your new lives as husband and wife….you guys deserve every second of it! :)

    Montez Arnold - Hello all you Chabollas, past and present. Cindy, how did we know when I came to visit just after Erin was born that we would be here at this point in our time knowing each other. I still have the pictures of us in the airport and I am telling Erin goodbye, holding the little girl, and then the years later when they all three came to see me in Arkansas. Sunny looks great. I found her in one of the pictures. God has blessed both of us with our families. Love to all, Montez. I will figure out how to do pictures on facebook, hopefully so I can share with you Chabollas and Nelsons. (if you want to send hints, please do)
