What a day for these two! We started off early at the hockey rink for Barrin's senior photos and (I later found out we all took an afternoon nap!) then Barrin's dad, Ben, made it official with my fun friend Abby! When she first told me "Palmer's", I thought to myself, "As in, Palmer's Deli?" and sure enough, the folks at Palmer's know how to create the sweetest wedding venue that was just right for the type of event Abby & Ben wanted to create. Small, intimate and laid-back. Because everything for the day was right here, we were able to squeeze in the basics in a narrow window of time as they made Things "officially official".

Once Ben arrived, we had him hang out on the patio and Barrin and Ben's dad helped him get the final touches complete in time for the First Look: 

Abby, you are such a stunner! :) The moments between you and your Dad were so sweet and endearing. This day was probably record holding in many ways (a senior session and a wedding for the same family in the same day, being one) including a ceremony AND family portraits done in under 30 minutes total. Whew! Way to go! I'm sending a virtual high five!

Abby + Ben: Thank you so much for trusting me with SO much of your family's history on this day! (And the Cyclones made history on this day too for you!) You will forever hold a special place in my heart and I wish you nothing but the best on your school year and your future together as Mr. & Mrs!
