Forest Highlands Wedding in Flagstaff

Forest Highlands Wedding in Flagstaff

Madison and Drake were married this summer at Forest Highlands in Flagstaff, Arizona. Drake is Dustin’s little brother and Madison and I have been friends since high school so it’s safe to say we are both absolutely thrilled with this match!

Madison and Drake met in high school, and briefly dated but eventually broke up because, well, high school. They still remained in the same friend circles though and even kept in touch after high school.

Fast forward a few years, when Dustin and I were getting married we asked Madison to help us because she is an amazing wedding planner! After watching her and Drake during the planning and wedding day is when I got my first glimmer of hope – how amazing would it be to have my wonderful, sweet friend as a sister-in-law?! (Someday I’ll have to share the photo of them dancing at our wedding!) But as much as I love Drake, I think we could all agree he has some growing up to do. Time went on and Madison ended up getting a job that took her to the east coast.

To make an already long story short – Madison and I reconnected and I may have meddled a little bit and told her Drake has always had a thing for her (which he had) and I knew she always did too. They always had such a chemistry!

As much as I love to joke with them that this wedding was my dream come true of having a sister-in-law I actually love – I couldn’t be happier for them and know this was years and years in the making!

Madison and Drake – Thank you so much for letting me be a part of such an amazing experience. It was definitely no easy feat being both bridesmaid and photographer but it was definitely worth it and I wouldn’t have had it any other way! Love you two so much! <3
