Best of 2016

Weddings

[Preliminary Warning: there’s lots of images in this post so give it a few moments to load before scrolling.] 2016 was our first official year as Kindred Storytellers and we couldn’t be more excited for what 2017 holds. Per usual, we learned a ton by making mistakes and making some images we’re proud of in the process. We’re so grateful for all the incredibly diverse and unique couples that include us on such an intimate and monumental day. If there’s one thing we’ve learned as a couple planning our own wedding it’s make the event your very own. Don’t worry if it’s not perfectly on point or on trend, do what feels right and creative and representative of you both. Do that and we promise: it’ll be epic. See our favorites below!

Julia + Tahnee’s Backyard Wedding in Nevada City
Julia and Tahnee had it special from the start. They met in South America, studying abroad both learning to speak Spanish. They traveled through the continent together, first as friends and then as lovers. Fast forward five years, their love has only grown. Really. Relationships create a third presence, the "we" and J+T's relationship is magnetic, disarming everyone that surrounds them. They act like they started dating 3 months ago yet you can sense the wisdom and maturity in their relationship that only comes from time spent and intentional steps, growing together. Needless to say, we cried way too many times at their wedding and it was one ...

Paige + Griffing Austin Wedding at Mercury Hall
Oh Paige and Griffing. Where to begin. Maybe Freshmen year at Baylor? That's where I (Elle) met Paige. We lived on the same floor in the dorms on campus. She was one of my very first friends and a lot has changed since then but Paige has stayed her calm, creative, accepting and all-loving self. As a couple, Paige and Griffing embody so much free-spirited joy and love for other people that their wedding was just one big hug, dancing, tears-of-joy fest. I'm so beyond honored I got to be there to witness all the moments that displayed their warmth and love for one another and the people that surround them. It was truly an epic day. Apologies for ...

Ushi + John’s Indian Ceremony at Campovida
Ushi and John had pretty much every weather pattern you can imagine in a single day with rain and momentary bursts of sun peeking through the clouds by the end of the evening and they were completely positive and joyful the whole way through. They gathered around their family and friends and had a traditional Indian ceremony which yes, did include John riding in on a horse, but none of these traditions were just because they should; they were each intentional and inspired by the rituals and spiritual traditions of Ushi's family. We were so inspired by how incredibly heartfelt and genuine everyone was and we really felt like two radically diff ...
