Usually, when we plan a wedding in mid- to late-May, we assume the weather will be mild–maybe, MAYBE a little rainy. Even though Kourtney and Brett had a day with overcast skies and cold Canadian winds, the day was so sweet. And there was no rain. Whew!
And Kourtney, you are a stunning bride!
And your groom, what a hunk!
I absolutely love when brides have a first look for their fathers. I’m going to encourage more of these to my future brides. They get me every time!
I loved Kourtney and Brett’s flowers! The groomsmen’s boutonnieres! I mean! Look at ’em!
Kourtney and Brett: The Ceremony
Kourtney and Brett’s ceremony was an awesome picture of their devotion to Christ. I mean, I truly believe Christ will express excitement upon seeing His bride come to Him! Think of it! I love the symbolism of a marriage and wedding ceremony. And I love that these two stopped the ceremony for a couple of praise and worship songs. I mean, what can be better than capturing a love story while literally singing praises to God!?
We ventured back outside for a few wedding party shots after the ceremony and these peeps were troopers! I mean, look at those rolling hills! The winds were just whispering over the field. It truly was beautiful. And the guys thought it would be fun to frisk Jimmy, here. These guys were a riot!
Once we got to the reception venue, Neltner’s Farm, we got some stunning pictures of Kourtney and Brett. Seriously, the farm grounds are beautiful! I’d shoot here every day and twice on Sundays and still have a wonderful time!
Kourtney and Brett: The Reception
And seriously, this cake by The Sweeterie! It was as delicious as it was beautiful! Kourtney is actually a baker and works with Susan over at The Sweeterie. They don’t do cakes very often, but, in case you didn’t now, we should all make exceptions for the amazing Kourtney! :)
Kourtney and Brett danced to the most romantic version of 500 Miles that I’ve ever heard. I added it t my playlist and can’t get enough!
Now, in the photography world, a lot of photographers will complain about dry wedding receptions. But, seriously, I will never complain about them. Ever. One of the plethora of reasons: These GUESTS! And DJ Rob put on one heck of a party. Everyone had a blast!
Do any of you remember Kailee? She is my go-to video referral with Reel Love In Focus. She’s also Kourtney’s sister. Here’s an epic capture of her failure during the bouquet toss. Kailee, I love you.
And people had a nice time in the photobooth. Kourtney wanted the photobooth to match the theme of her wedding, so we used the inside of the barn as the backdrop.
Kourtney and Brett: The Exit
Lastly, we capped off the evening with a super romantic sparkler exit. I love how many people stuck around for this exit! It made it so special and fun!
Kourtney and Brett,
I loved capturing your day and telling your story. Thank you for the honor of trusting me with your big day, your priceless images, and, most of all, your Christ-centered love story.
I wish the both of you an amazing marriage–that you’ll lean in toward one another during hard times and rejoice together during the happy times. And that there will be plenty of happy times.
