First Wedding of the Year

And it came so fast!! We are so blessed to have the opportunity to capture these moments in our community. The story behind this engagement is priceless….and even made the radio! Now they get to spend the rest of their days making adventures happen and live life to the fullest as husband and wife.

For now, I’d like to share with my followers my first storyboard of a wedding day with Jim & Karen. Enjoy!

As they get ready…

To their first look…..oh how they doted over one another.

Then it was time to capture some of their first moments together as they anticipated the arrival of their guests. Enjoy a few of our favorites.

Now let us introduce this fantastic wedding party! Their love for children is beyond and they included that in their wedding. It was one of the best wedding parties we’ve had yet!! They all looked so grown up and acted the part too! We are so proud of all you munchkins, especially the Maid of Honor and Best Man ;) (Just picking).

Then it’s showtime….and the ceremony begins. As Karen’s Mother walks her down…even though they had their first look, Jim is still so caught up in the feelings of emotion. I’ve seen this several times at weddings that choose the first look. There is so much energy once the room is filled with all those that you love….the emotions are there regardless. These are priceless moments that will forever be in your hearts.

During this ceremony, we got to witness something different. Instead of a candle, sand, tying a knot, etc….they joined soil into the base of this tree and then watered it as we need to do in our marriages. Now this can be planted and they can watch it grow with their love for years to come. I was filled with sooo much joy to witness this part! As a lover of nature, this warmed my soul.


We’ll save the kiss for them….so now, we’ll jump straight into the party! With face painting, balloon artist, a PhotoBooth, square dancing, taking a trip in a combine on the dance floor, dollar dash with the kiddos collecting and soooo much more. This was one of the best weddings we’ve captured yet! And did I mention, they just planned this a few months ago? Enjoy some of these moments below.

And the toast of course…..not to worry, they had sparkling apple juice and thought they were BIG TIME!!

Be sure to watch Instagram for other moments not shared here over the course of the next few weeks while their gallery is being created.

Thank you Jim & Karen for including us in one of the biggest days of your life. We are forever grateful….My cupeth runs over.
