Being asked to photograph someones wedding is such an honor. Being asked to photograph someones wedding when either they, or their immediate family are in the wedding industry is one of the highest honors you could imagine. That is how I felt when Kristen and Rich decided to have me for their photographer. Rich's Mom worked for one of the well known florists in our area, and she encouraged her son and future daughter in law to meet with me.
From the minute I met with them, I was so excited to be a part of their day. Kristen was not only beautiful on the outside but the sweetest person you could ever find. I looked forward to their day from the minute they booked because of how photogenic they were as a couple, but also just how kind, and happy and caring they are to everyone around them.
Their wedding day did not disappoint! The day started at Rich and Kristens home where Kristen, her parents and siblings and her Bridal Party girls got ready. She was all smiles, as well as her girls and family and capturing those getting ready shots were a lot of fun. We left their house and headed to The Greenview Inn at Eastlyn Golf Course where they had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony followed by their cocktail hour and reception. The weather was perfect, the sky was so blue and full of beautiful white fluffy clouds, which made the backdrop for this couples awesome ceremony and portraits that much better. After the couple said their vows and walked down the isle hand and hand as the new Mr. and Mrs. we immediately began doing family portraits. The family portraits where followed by Bridal Party shots where we got to explore the grounds of Eastlyn Golf Course a little more. I always love working at Eastlyn from the amazing staff, to the beautiful set up from inside to out, right down to the delicious food it is an amazing spot to celebrate your Wedding Day.
Once portraits were complete it was time to enjoy the rest of cocktail hour with their family and friends before BME Event Group DJ Bob Morgan did introductions. Kristen and Rich's first dance was just as lovely as they are and the parent dances were full of as much emotion and feeling as you could imagine. The speeches and toasts were full of heartfelt messages from the Maid of Honor and Best Man too. Once all of the formalities were finished, it was time to party. DJ Bob Morgan along with DJ Angel Santiago kept the dance floor packed all night long with the night ending just as amazingly as it began. Thank you again to Kristen and Rich for not only choosing me to photograph your wedding day, but for choosing BME to DJ your day as well.
