Ohhhh bloggggg reeeeeeaders!!!!! BOY OH BOY do I have a treeeeeeeat for youuuuuuuu!!!! Yes yes yes… you guessed it… A WEDDING! 😉
The ladies were running a little late to the ceremony. As in… we all showed up 3 minutes before the ceremony started. WHAAAAAA?! Why you may wonder?! I’ll show you at the end. 😉 Oh, and for the record… the ceremony still started RIGHT on time!
Because of the aforementioned chaos leading up to the ceremony, her first look with her dad was a little hectic in the very best way possible. Kim rushed in and, she locked eyes with her dad, they both nearly froze and started crying. Meanwhile, “WHOOOO HAS THE VEIL?!” is being shout/whispered in the background.
My favorite part of being a wedding photographer is that I get to be one of the only people who has this view. 🙂
St. John’s Catholic Church is one of the most impressive churches in all of Indianapolis!
WELL HELLOOOO BEAUTIFUL BRIDESMAIDS! I cannot wait to photograph all of your future weddings! 😉
Let’s talk about how Alan OUTDID himself with the bouquets…!
SEEEE WHAT I MEEEEEEAN?!
I love me a tux with a bowtie. SO classic!
After dinner Andrew changed into a white tux jacket (WINNING!) so I asked if I could take them outside for 10 minutes for just a fewwww more portraits. 🙂
KIM! YOUR WAIST?! AHHHH!!!! SOOOO TIIIIINY!
Hey Megan, you’re very appreciated. Thank you for being the perfectionist you are. Your reception lighting is ON POINT!
Watching the parent dances had me in some serious tears! Between Fritz spinning Kim around and Andrew having the VERY sweetest moments with his mom during their dance…. phew… both were perfection!
This dance party suuuuure didn’t disappoint!
Side note: I’m really proud of our “party dancing” images. As many of you know, I wasn’t the photographer in my old duo who shot these. Well…. now I am… and well…. I BE NAILIN’ IT! 😉
These two had a pretty intense dance off.
While it was a pretty close call… this flip move was tough to beat! 😀
A perfect finale to a perfect day.
behind the scenes
As we’re getting ready to load into the busses, I notice a group of people huddled around the maid of honor in the corner looking panicked. The wedding planner then informs me that the zipper malfunctioned. She’s trying to fix it with safety pins. I took a look at it and knew, without a doubt, the only way we were going to fix it was to sew her into it. I looked at the MOH and said precisely that. She responded with a smile, “then that’s what we’re gonna do!” I rush over to my emergency kit, bust out my needle and thread and GO TO WORK! 10-ish minutes later… that dress wasn’t going ANYWHERE! The only way she was going to get out of it was to be cut out of it.
FYI, upholstery thread is the strongest there is… I HIGHLY recommend it for your all wedding emergency kits! I have the white thread in my bag and Megan has the black thread in hers.
PS. that scrunchy was on on the junior bridesmaids wrist and I took it off of her when I was taking her portrait. I assure you I wasn’t wearing a scrunchy on my wrist all day! 😀 Jusssst sayin….
Megan working hard while Ben the videographer attempts to look busy. On brand! 😀
Could I possibly BE any more over the top?! The answer: yes, absolutely I can! 😉
Much love friends!
