After spending time with Austin and Dianna over coffee and at their engagement session, I had a feeling that this wedding day was going to be one of my favorites. These two are laid back but were passionate about the meaning behind their day, and I loved the personal touches they incorporated into their wedding, including a song written and performed by a friend at their ceremony, a time capsule full of letters from family and each other to be opened on their 5-year anniversary, and Dianna’s gorgeous “something borrowed” ring from her great-grandmother. It was a day full of emotion, sunshine, romance, and doughnuts. Dianna’s sister mentioned that toasts had always been Dianna’s favorite part of a wedding day, which I think really reflects her love for friends and family, and I loved that I saw this throughout the wedding. Family is so important to me too, and it’s one of the reasons I love my job so much. ANYWAY, here are some of my favorite images from Austin and Dianna’s beautiful day!
