Leah + Dan: MillCreek Barns Wedding

Dan and I have crossed paths across a full decade of our lives. I first met Dan when we were both counselors at a summer camp when I was seventeen, then again in college at Michigan State. I met Leah when I lived in Chicago, and she introduced me to her boyfriend, who turned out to be Dan. Small world, right? These two are now proud Michiganders like me (though I’m currently traveling for eight months, but that’s a story for another day).

I’m so excited to finally share photos from Leah and Dan’s wedding day. I loved running into old summer camp friends and friends from Chicago—the whole day was one big beautiful ball of love and happiness.

For more photos, check out the wedding feature at Love and Lavender.

Taking a Break: Vegan Raw Cheesecake

vegan raw cheesecake with dates and nuts

I haven’t posted about my personal life to this blog in ages, but I absolutely had to share this recipe. I spend most holidays enjoying mounds of chocolate, pie and other desserts, but earlier this month, I gave up dairy, refined sugar and caffeine (yes, my morning coffee!) in an attempt to rebalance my diet and life.

I was craving a little something sweet as I watched family and friends enjoy my typical favorites, and this vegan raw cheesecake recipe was the perfect find (thank you, Pinterest). It’s made with dates, cashews, walnuts, agave nectar, extra virgin coconut oil (a new favorite), vanilla and other natural goodies. If you’re looking to try something a little different in the new year, you absolutely must give it a try. The whole process is fairly simple, since there’s no actual cooking. Jeff and I have been ooohing and ahhhing over it ever since we tried the first bite.

Find the full recipe on the DAMY Health blog: Caramel Blondie Brownie Cheesecake (Vegan/Raw)

Rachel + David | Deer Path Inn Wedding

Chicago will always have a special place in my heart, so I was thrilled to get back there for Rachel and David’s wedding during Memorial Day weekend. Rachel and David—thanks for letting me spend a beautiful day with you and your wonderful friends and family.

And the Gold Coast Orchestra was insanely good—they completely filled the dance floor, which is always fun for a wedding photographer.
