Bill and Christie | Summit County New Jersey Wedding

We love New Jersey weddings because it means we get to see loads of our amazing family!! David is one of 41 grandkids and his closest cousin Bill was getting hitched. David still remembers when he and Bill were kindergarteners swimming and fishing in the "Mary Street Pond" behind Bill's house and fun was their only agenda. Now Bill was all grown up and getting married! Bill had been dating his gorgeous bride Christie for nearly 7 years and we couldn't be happier that they were tying the knot. Christie is incredibly sweet, delightful and perfect for Bill. They complimented each other in so many ways. Friends & family came together to witness these two exchange their vows at the beautiful Catholic cathedral, St. Vincent de Paul Church. During the bride and groom portraits, Bill & Christie were all smiles as they kissed and laughed through the 100+ degree heat! True love folks. The Birchwood Manor hosted the elegant reception where everyone put their dancing shoes on as they kept that dance floor hopping ALL night long!

The day after the wedding, David's extended family came together for a sweet little family reunion...of course, there is not really anything "little" about it with a group this size! Everyone had a blast hanging out, playing games, chatting it up and grubbing. By the end of the night, Gram and Pops may have been the only ones to survive the massive game of pushing everyone into the pool. If you were dry, swimsuit or not, one of your dear family members was going to ensure you met the splashing pool waves.:)

Michael & Ashley | Salt Lake City Wedding

Michael & Ashley's wedding was an extra special occasion for us. Not only was it at one of the most stunning locations in Salt Lake City, UT but it was also my (Tammy) brother's wedding. What a joy to see Michael all grown up and getting married. In the midst of Michael going to school to be a doctor, he managed to find the girl of his dreams and whisk her away in his arms. We're so proud of Michael for his achievements, adventurous heart and for marrying such an awesome girl. Ashley is a sweetheart and a knock-out...beautiful inside and out. She is one of the most caring and genuine people you will ever meet. She is perfect for Michael and we're thrilled to have her as a sister!

Our favorite moments from the trip were spending time with family and becoming friends with new family. What a blessing to have so many amazing people in our lives. We wish we didn't all live so far away from each other but look forward to the next time we can all be together.

The wedding was held at Thanksgiving Point's elegant "Loggia", a garden wonderland in full June bloom. Thanks to Jessica, the incredible wedding coordinator, for her stellar help in making sure everything ran seamlessly.

Congrats Michael & Ashley!! We're stoked for you guys and love y'all so much!!

Ashley...Could you be anymore GORGEOUS?!:) Props to her sister Caroline on doing an incredible job on Ashley's hair & make up!

Michael was quite the handsome groom! Being a part-time model, he was a pro in front of the camera.

The Deveau clan...just missing our brother David. As you can see, somehow I missed out on the pool of tall genes ranking the oldest yet smallest sibling.;)

The dashing couple!!

David and I arrived a few days early and squeezed in a little Salt Flats adventure with the bride and groom to be. Such a cool spot!
