plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I love a good photo, but nearly as much as I love a good love story. My friend, Alexandra, at Heart Love Weddings, knows exactly what I’m talking about. And, Jill and Mack’s love story is the type that has you rooting for life-long love. Every time.

From the Photographer, Rachel:
A little background on the engaged couple, Jill & Mack:  Their story starts years ago when they were childhood schoolmates and Mack used to chase Jill around the playground and steal Jill’s barbie dolls, just so she would have to chase him back!  Years went by and they went their separate ways, but then one day Mack ‘accidently’ called Jill, and they couldn’t stop talking!  Their relationship grew from there and the rest is history!  Fast forward to a very special Valentine’s Day when Mack surprised Jill with a ring and asked Jill to marry him – and of course, she excitedly said yes!
