I could not have picked a better wedding to kick off the new site if I’d tried. I had such a great weekend with Heather, Travis, and all their family & friends. I hope this peek into it captures just a little bit of what it was like.
The thing I love about shooting out of town/destination weddings is getting to hang out at the rehearsal & dinner. You really get a feel for the families and what everyone’s personalities are like.
Here’s a shot of Travis & his brother. It’s crazy to me when I think that one day my tiny boys will look like those men.
The dinner was an evening of stories, laughter, musical tributes, tears, and more.
On to the wedding day! You know it’s a good group of bridesmaids when you walk in and find they have been raiding the hotel juice machine all morning.
These two photos happened within 15 seconds of each other. It’s exactly what many wedding days are like. One moment you are laughing because you are so happy you are getting married. 10 seconds later it all hits you and then you tear up and can’t believe the day has finally come.
Heather & Travis wanted a giant field for their ceremony. So they did what any rational person would do. They contacted the fine folks at Big Foot Turf and said; “Can we start our marriage on one of your fields?”
Every time I turned around he was hugging her. It’s almost like he didn’t want to miss a single chance to remind her that even though she was changing her name that day, he would always be her daddy.
Sisters make for great money shots at weddings. :)
I’m not sure Travis finished turning around before Heather had him in tears during their First Look.
Smoothest. Groom. Ever.
How do you get little people down the aisle? Pez.
I LOVE the 3 minutes after a couple are married. I’m not sure if all your wedding-blogs tell you this, but it’s kinda the coolest part of your day. It’s a blur and you may not even remember it later. It’s that moment when the 10-20 most important people in your life engulf you with love. (And sometimes your mom gives you bunny ears.)
It was an honor for you guys to have me out there. Thanks for trusting me with your day and I can’t wait to dump a couple hundred more photos on you soon. ;)
