Burberry Winter Wedding | Walk Through a Wedding


When I first discovered Justin & Mary last year, their work immediately inspired me. When I read more about Justin and & Mary as PEOPLE and as a couple, I fell in LOVE with their business and everything that they stand for. These two shine such a bright light in the community, and they talk about love in a way that anyone could admire. They love people, community, photographers, their clients and each other more than anyone I have ever met. I love EVERYTHING about these two, so when I found out that I was attending their February “Walk Through a Wedding” workshop on Christmas morning (THANK YOU, mom and dad!!) I may or may not have been screaming and jumping up and down. I felt like that was a very appropriate response.

I had been saving up for a seat to one of Justin & Mary’s workshops, but my parents blessed me with a seat as my Christmas gift and I could not be more thankful for them! I left this workshop feeling so inspired, loved and encouraged, and I cannot WAIT to put all of the amazing information that I learned to use! I posted a little sneak peek of Day 1 last week (you can read that HERE) but I am beyond excited to share the entire first styled shoot with you!!

Both days of the workshop consisted of a FULL styled shoot, and they were more than anything I could have imagined! Every detail was beyond beautiful, and everyone rocked it out (even in 18 degrees + blizzard conditions!) I wanted to say another HUGE thank you to all of the amazing vendors who contributed to these styled shoots, they were both something from a fairytale! None of this could have happened without them!
