Erica and Josh are Amazing!
This was our first wedding of the year and I was so excited I could early sleep the night before. We quickly grabbed our gear and went to the room where I thought the girls were getting ready. I walked in and started talking to everyone and quickly realized I have only met Erica and Josh and there was a high possibility that we were hanging out with the wrong wedding haha. I didn't see Erica quite yet but lucky her mom started introducing me to family and my fears were taken away when I finally saw her in the corner getting her makeup done. (Note to self, find bride first then start meeting people) .
The rest of the day went so smooth. The weather was cold but not rainy and that was just fine with us. I think one of my favorite parts of the wedding was this huge camper van came to pick up the wedding party. They called it the Mallard and it looked like it had been though ….. lets just say a lot of adventuring with this group.
Congratulations you guys we loved spending the day with your friends and family everyone is so proud and happy for you both to have tied the knot.
Holy cow was that cold!
Katie and Trent booked us last week and said they wanted snow. Well they got it along with -14 degree weather brrrr. You guys were incredible pretending the cold was tolerable. What you dont see is ben in his carhartts and me bundled up from head to toe. At least their 2 German shepherds loved it. They were bouncing around the entire yard playing and running only to settle down for a few photos to get some treats.
Congratulations Katie and Trent we cant wait for your wedding hopefully it will be 64 degrees warmer.
The love was strong with these ones! We have been looking forward to this wedding for years and it finally came. Bruce and Courtney you guys are so sweet and it was an absolute pleasure being with you on your wedding day. We have so many favorite parts I don't know where to start. Between surprising you with vampire teeth to rummaging through all the vintage McDonalds toys in the kids area it was an absolute blast. Congratulations !!!
What a fun night we had and my gosh were we lucky with the weather it is so hard to believe this was only last week with it being so cold and rainy lately. Thank you for coming out to our home and bringing your little fur baby. It was so much fun seeing the two of you together playing and joking around. Its heartwarming to see such a true love.
Joey and Elizabeth your wedding was the most laid back I think we have ever been a part of it was so fun. I think one of my favorite parts was when Joey was getting super nervous at the alter and her officiant/Best friend had his head in the game and got the DJ to play “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake. Joey and him started club dancing it was so funny. Your silliness and love that we saw showed just how wonderful of a couple you are. We wish you all the love and happiness thank you for sharing your beautiful wedding day with us.
Where do I start…… This day was fun!
It was a beautiful day with amazing people we had a blast getting to know family and friends. It was so funny to see how excited the groomsmen got when I told them to go and get their guns for our group photo….. don't worry mom we got some without the guns but dang if it didn't get those boys excited for photos.
Taylor and Jayme are such a sweet couple it was so fun watching Taylor be in aww or Jayme walking down the aisle. We truly saw love.
Last week we drove to Napoleon and met up with this sweet couple. It was so fun walking around the farm and meeting all the super cute farm animals. I loved including Krista’s beautiful horse in their engagement photos. He played a special part in Michaels proposal. When they told me their engagement story it gave me goose bumps with how thoughtful Michael was to include her horse Kenny.
Ryan and Sarah what a fun day this was. I didn't think we could have any more fun then we did up at your family coal mine dodging bull snakes for your engagement photos. If you have never met these two love birds they are great. One of my favorite things about them is their love for their colleges, that just so happen to be HUGE Rivals. But through their differences their love prevails with just a hint of cheeky.
I don't want to choose favorites but I think the girls won this hand with their sneaky UND photo op.
Last weekend we shot Haley and Erics wedding. At the beginning of they day we were watching our weather every second thinking it might storm. With Ben and my luck this year it was going to rain for the ceremony. Turns out it did not rain and it was absolutely beautiful.
Its not often that we have a bride that wants to have the first look as she is walking down the isle with all of their friends and family watching. I always look forward to this because it is so emotional and special to share that moment with everyone. One of the special moments of the day was during the ceremony one of the ring doggie cuddled up in the train of Haley's dress.
Everyone even the little fur babies were included in their wedding.
What a great day! All day we were crossing our fingers that all our photos could be outside and we lucked out. We were able to drive out to Black Leg Ranches old homestead to take our couple photos. In the distance we could hear deep thunder rolling in and we made sure to get back just in time. As Aimee was walking down the aisle the rain came down and we were so cozy in the main barn. It was so intimate and sweet. It was a perfect evening.
We have the pleasure of documenting weddings all over the Midwest. This blog is a fun sneak peek for those brides and grooms.
