These people.

Right here.

If there’s one thing we heard all day long, it’s that they’re going to change the world. They have poured themselves into the lives of so many of their generation, and it showed in every interaction on their wedding day. Their tribe was there and the excitement was unstoppable. We love this so much because we know - we know - that this marriage is going to last. They have what it takes to thrive through thick and thin, and a community to hold them up when the road gets hard.

The day was nothing short of perfect, between the fall weather, the gorgeous mountain backdrop, and Mariah’s flawless sense of style to create a space that was elegant, refined, and natural. White linens were paired with tablescapes of fresh eucalyptus branches, baby’s breath, and candles. Their naked cake was surrounded with towers of glazed donuts, and their social dinner featured delicious homemade food by friends and family.

Check out some of our favorite moments below: her brother Tharin, the Marine, totally losing it after the ceremony. The maps that Mariah gave Sam as a gift, because he’s always been fascinated with cartography. Mariah crying over his letter to her. The huge grin on her dad’s face the entire day. Those bridesmaids dresses 👌🏻 The insane camp-style boy vs. girl chant battle that left our ears ringing for hours after it was over.

And the way Sam looks at his bride and holds her so tightly. They have been separated most of their relationship and now they no longer have to say good-bye. They’ll be by each other side from this day forward, taking the world by storm. So you better be ready for it.

We love you guys and wish you so many blessings! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your amazing day - and for changing us, forever, like you have so many other people.
