Marcy's beautiful wedding gown showed light, beauty and elegance as it hung on her wedding day. With exquisite sequence and embellishments, this gown was made for her.
From head to toe, Marcy is decorated in beautiful textures. Her shoes that she would walk down the aisle in, made the perfect sparkle to match her jewelry. As her mother helped add these touches, it was a moment that these two would share forever.
The guys sharing a moment before its go time.
Marcy's shoes were perfect for her in every way.
From the make up to the dazzling jewelry, this bride is beautiful from any angle.
Shadoe and Marcy's venue had the perfect amount of light that shined through as she was walking in.
Grandparents are in important. The reaction to seeing their granddaughter on her wedding day is something that no one will forget.
As Marcy walked in, Shadoe could not have been more nervous or excited to finally see Marcy.
The rings absolutely sparkled as the light gently hit the rings. The purple ring bearer pillow made an excellent back ground as it gave an intriguing view and formed a beautiful image.
As Marcy walked down the aisle with her father, here is a beautiful image capturing the moment between them.
With a wide angle, this church gathered many in on this beautiful day to celebrate an even better couple.
Whether it is inside saying the vows or outside running through bubbles, this couple glowed from every angle.
With her girls by her side, this day could not have gotten any better.
A breath taking bride and a wondrous flower girl, this photo is perfect in every way!
Isn't Marcy bouquet stunning?? I mean those colors and the flowers...aahh! I'm in love!
There is never a dull moment when it comes to the guys and having fun!
This spot was absolutely divine! Love how the veil just draws you to the couple in this image.
These guys were an absolute blast to work with. Their personalities were a hoot!
You can just see how much love they share!
Everywhere Marcy went on this day, you could just see how happy she was! Her sweet smile couldn't have been any bigger.
Prairie Nature area gave a beautiful setting for this couple. I love how the light shines through giving the perfect touches.
The Sioux Falls Riviera was a beautiful venue for a beautiful couple. I love how the bokeh gives a nice touch from the gorgeous chandelier.
While eating their meal and guests clinging their glasses together for a kiss, this couple can do it all.
After the meal, it was time to dance the night away! This angle and the lighting is just...aaahhh!! <3
Becky was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot a few years ago. It's been awhile, five? six years maybe? And that wedding is still one of my favorites. When I heard that, I knew this one would be good too. But, when I met Becky and Jerad for their engagement session, I knew it would be better than I imaged.
Just like on their engagement session day, the day of the wedding Jerad could not stop looking at Becky. The two of them are so head over heals in love that it made my job easy. I just had to click the shutter and the magic between them shined through on all the images.
It was an honor to see these two commit to each other and thank you again for having me!
Alex and John are a beautiful couple, inside and out. It was a pleasure getting to know them and being a part of their day. I met them a few years ago when I photographed her brother Austin's wedding to Megan. We were able to create beautiful portraits at the church and then head to a park near the Big Sioux River for bridal party portraits. After the ceremony at Brandon Lutheran Church we went downtown to some spots that were ideal for fun wedding part photos near 6th and Main and the Old Courthouse Museum. The ceremony was held at Brandon Lutheran Church. Hair and makeup provided by the fabulous Angelique of Platinum Imagination. Video by AJ Production Company. Cake by The Cake Lady. Reception by Sioux Falls Convention Center. Decor and planning by Envision Wedding Studio. Entertainment and lighting by Energy Events Group.
Loved these two! Their engagement session was so much fun that I knew the wedding in Huron would be fabulous. Emily put a lot of thought into her details and making things special and unique for their wedding. Their wedding ceremony was at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Believe it or not, Huron is one of my favorite towns for photos! There's some really awesome spots to take a fun bridal party. Since Troy and Emily are definitely in the *FUN* bridal party category, we really made the most of our time and hit some amazing spots.
