This was a fun wedding to be part of. The day started out at the church in Minong, me and the groom and a few of his groomsmen waiting around for the arrival of the bride, wedding nerves and excitement in the air! The church had been beautifully decorated with a number of very neat home made items, and really gave the ceremony it’s own unique feel. The families were pretty well organized, so we managed to get the family photos taken care of without too much hassle. The best part of the afternoon though was the first look, it was one of the most emotional, heartfelt responses I’ve ever seen from a groom, and made for a beautiful moment that I felt privileged to be able to capture for them forever.
After the ceremony we headed to Heartwood, where we braved the bugs to get some nice bridal party pictures, and then the happy couple and I went out on one of the trails for more pictures! The bride stayed brave through it all, even after a cricket launched itself onto her dress, and we found three ticks crawling on her dress and legs inside of five feet of the beginning of the trail! We got some great shots though, and the night was a lot of fun to be a part of. These two look great together, and have a noticeable chemistry that I think came through in the pictures I took.
Thank you Michelle and Michael for letting me be a part of your day!
