I'm so glad you found your way over to the blog! Here you'll find glimpses into weddings & events that I've had the pleasure of shooting, & tips to make your special day go smoothly.
They say there’s a first time for everything. For me, this fall wedding was my first time photographing a wedding with a cold! I woke up the morning of this wedding feeling miserable, but I knew I had to serve my couple to the best of my ability! I battled a runny nose and sneezing all day, and I am so proud of myself for not sneezing during the ceremony!!
After I picked up some Tylenol Cold and Sinus, the day started off with Jillian and her bridesmaids at a hotel in Midland. I started with the detail shots and then we went outside to capture some photos! I noticed something during the detail photos… Jillian’s ring looked different? I asked her about it and she told me this (somewhat) hilarious story about Dominic accidentally melting her engagement ring!! I couldn’t believe it when she told me – ha ha.
Once I finished with the girls, I made my way to the venue; Rounds Ranch in Elmvale. Upon arrival, I met up with Dominic and his groomsmen, captured the reception set up, and proceeded to the ceremony site. The ceremony was set up beautifully for a simple fall wedding. Sunflowers and rustic elements were the inspiration behind this wedding theme.
The guests arrive, ceremony begins and ends, and Jillian and Dominic are finally husband and wife!
Jillian and Dominic CONGRATULATIONS on your marriage! I know it was a long time coming for you two. Enjoy some of my favourite photos from your big day. Also, enjoy being newlyweds! I wish you both nothing but the best for each other for the rest of your married lives!
