Back into the archives again for the gorgeous wedding ceremony for Mandy and Kyle. These two were my first couple ever to do a first look. They helped me learn how wonderful first looks are! These two knew that seeing each other prior to the ceremony would help calm their nerves and give us more time in the perfect surroundings for portraits. There was something magical about sharing a first look with a couple who knew they needed each other to enjoy their day and lives.
After the experience of the first look this couple had a beautiful ceremony that may be the quickest ceremony I have ever attended. Her guests loved the intimate setting and feel.
Mandy even planned MORE time for portraits for me, I felt spoiled with so much time, beauty, and willingness to try anything from this bride and groom. Their trust in me allowed for some gorgeous whimsical shots!
The Schenk’s shared laughs and love with their friends and family at Mandy’s dad’s home for their reception. She had some amazing touches (like a vintage car cooler!) and an outdoor dance floor! The intimate and romantic shots on the “dance floor” were a dream to capture!
The night ended with an ice cream bar ending a beautiful day full of unique touches ! Thank you Mandy and Kyle for allowing me to capture such a perfect day!
