shadow_creek_wedding_photographer_gillispie01shadow creek has become a second home these days, and i couldn’t be happier about that! it’s my most favorite venue to work at, and everyone always ha the best experience working with the incredible owners and staff there! i was so excited for nathan and sarah’s wedding at shadow creek, from the moment sarah explained her “rustic elegance” vision for the day i knew they had found the most perfect venue. they pieced together my dream team of vendors for their day, and it was flawless from start to finish! the only thing that would have made the day better would have been a surprise appearance from their sweet pup sadie, who you will remember from their engagement session! :) as always, enjoy way too many favorite images! shadow_creek_wedding_photographer_gillispie05shadow_creek_wedding_photographer_gillispie06i loved their invitation suite!
