Guys! I knew this day was going to be special when I sighted a bald eagle on my drive up to the venue! I couldn’t have been more excited to see Kiersten and David again! The day started off with hugs and introductions to Kiersten’s amazing bridal party. Honestly, these girls could not have been sweeter. Their love and excitement for Kiersten was unmistakable and genuine. But one of my favorite parts of the morning was getting to finally meet Alise, Kiersten and David’s daughter. This little girl was so spunky and excited for the day’s festivities. I also had the great pleasure of meeting Kiersten’s mother, what a beautiful kind soul she is. My favorite shot of the morning came when Mom, Alise and Kiersten filled my frame, as Kiersten was getting into her dress. This photo captures three generations and it’s one of my favorites of this wedding season.
Kiersten and David’s ceremony was beautiful, filled with laughter and so much love. I swooned as Kiersten made her big entrance arm-in-arm with her mother as they smiled and laughed all the way down the aisle. Although I don’t know what secret words they shared, it was a beautiful moment to witness and reminded me of my own close relationship with my mom.
My second beloved moment of the ceremony came when David made a sweet vow of devotion to Alise. As he turned to speak directly to her and start his sweet monolog, Alise was asleep and could barely keep her eyes open. Everyone in the congregation, including Kiersten and David, laughed at the adorable scene.
Though it was a beautiful day outside, it was mid-November and freezing outside with the temperature in the very 40s. So after the ceremony, we quickly got all the bridal party and bride and grooms’ portraits. Everyone were such pros, especially Kiersten and David, you would never guess it was so cold out!
Kiersten and David, I love you both! Your day was a dream and I am so privileged and honored to have been a part of the team to capture it!! Thank you for sharing your day with us! I hope you enjoy my visual depiction of your beautiful fall wedding, and I wish you both a happily ever after!!
