Saturday was a pretty fantastic day. It’s not very often that I can walk from my studio, to a wedding ceremony and the wedding reception! Grant and Kelsey were married at their church, Clear River, surrounded by their family and some amazing friends. I have shot a lot of weddings, and I’m always amazed by the relationships between people. Not just the bride and groom, but the bridal party as well. I know that I have said it before, but a group of friends, praying for their loved ones, right before they walk down the aisle, is a pretty fantastic thing. I happened to be in the bride’s room, when my assistant, Sara, captured the beautiful picture below, as Grant’s groomsmen, prayed for him. You can pose people all that you want, but real moments, like these, are the most powerful.
The reception, was held at Ratpak Venue, downtown. Seems like I have been there a lot lately. The Bluewater Kings Band did a fabulous job, as always, keeping the guests on the dance floor, all evening. Thanks to Ali and Hannah, from Wisthuff Events, for making the day run so smoothly! It was great meeting you both.
Grant and Kelsey, thanks for asking me to be your photographer. I had a blast! You are both so very kind and funny. I truly appreciate it.
