I started my 2014 wedding season with the best couple I could have ever asked for… and with a beautiful church, a great reception hall and above all Brandi and Grant's family and friends. And, I'm not just saying that… the friendly helper, great sets of parents and super fun friends (just take a look at the end of the blog :))
The bridal couple got ready at the St. Mary Catholic church in De Pere. It's a lovely church with lots of natural light, wood beams and tall ceilings…
I loved that Grant's friends had personalized cufflinks… Notre Dame, University of Missouri and Macalester College.
The bridal bling… one of my favorite ring shots. Ever!
Brandi with her parents.
(and this is why I love what I do… )
(the right place at the right time to capture this tender moment)
Sunny but super windy weather seems like the norm these days, and last Saturday was no exception. We tried to go outside… Grant and the guys totally ruled… Brandi couldn't have been more courageous, but in the end, the wind was just too much. And that's ok… We utilized the beautiful church to its fullest extent… and of course, there was the ballroom at the Tundra Lodge.
Look how happy and lighthearted Brandi is in the ridiculously strong winds… Nothing fazed her. Grant is one lucky guy…
His and hers
Taking a moment… a lovely moment.
Obsessed with silhouettes… Can you blame me ;)
The reception took place at the Tundra Lodge. Brandi and Grant had some time before the guests started to arrive.
And this is what I was referring to at the beginning of the blog… The guys didn't care that they were captured on film for all eternity! They were serenading to Brandi (and other ladies) and it was quite a fun scene.
And let me mention the garter toss! I have only seen this a handful of times in many years of doing this for a living… These guys were more than eager to catch the garter… and there were MANY of them (the girls didn't disappoint either).
Love at ISO 10,000!
It was my pleasure to have met Brandi and Grant and their friends and family.
Thank you! Dziekuje!
