Kyle & Nicole

I've been chomping at the bit to show the world this gorgeous wedding for almost an entire month. Kyle and Nicole were married this past August at Bend's Broken Top Resort and I'm SO excited that the day has finally come to show this beautiful couple off! If I've learned anything about spending weekend after weekend at weddings, it's that it's extremely easy to get caught up in the weddingness of it all. What I found so heartwarming about Kyle + Nicole's wedding was that their ultimate goal and deepest desire was for every one of their guests to enjoy themselves. They're the type of couple who spend their wedding reception asking if you're having a good time. Which was amazing given that every.single.guest in attendance seemed to sport the world's most enormous smile. Kyle & Nicole, thankyouthankyouthankyou for letting me document this beautiful day in your lives. I think the world of you both and could not have been more honored to photograph your wedding. Thank you for all the kindness you've showed - and continue to show - me throughout this past year. You really are the best.

Lots of love, Michelle

Sara Carson of Blue Daffodil creates the most beautiful florals and Nicole's bouquet was no exception. I'm always excited when I find out I get to photograph Sara's artistry.

Kyle and Nicole opted to see each other before the wedding which allowed for ample portrait time. It also insured everyone (bride & groom and bridal party combined) was able to enjoy the epic celebration that was their reception.

Nicole, stoppppp it.

No detail at Kyle and Nicole's wedding was too small to overlook. The handkerchief on the right belonged to Kyle's grandmother and was held in the bouquet of Kyle's mother at her own wedding to Kyle's dad.
