Casey and Nate are one of the best couples I have had the pleasure to photograph. Seriously. Casey is an old friend from college who’s smile is INFECTIOUS in all the good ways and Nate is her amazing husband. I was beyond excited when they asked me to be a part of documenting their special day but I think this is the first wedding where I found out I become much more than just a photographer on your special day.
Because we are friends and the maid of honor is my best friend Anissa when she asked me to I came out the day before and helped set up the venue and documented the rehearsal dinner. I loved getting to know the family and bridal party a little bit more before the wedding and also loved helping with the flowers. The wedding day was beautiful weather (the first day of summer! how could it not!) and I enjoyed sipping champagne while the ladies got ready and visiting the guys while they had a beer. The colors were bright and fun and the area is beautiful and calm. I enjoyed getting to know their small town life as we headed to the campground to set off lanterns in the dark. I met tons of wonderful people both days and cherish our new found friendships and all the awesome memories these photos bring back.
I picked my very favorite photos to share with you on the blog from both days. You can see them all on my Smug Mug.
