A few of my favorite lil details from Kathy and Matt’s wedding:
-Matt made Kathy’s ring box by hand!
-The patch of moss that was waiting for us right outside the church! It could not have worked out better for detail pics and matched Kathy and Matt’s outdoorsy personality perfectly.
-The lil ring bearer – ADORABLE!
-Kathy did a first look with her dad AND her brothers.
-Kathy’s low back dress – STUNNING!
-The way Kathy looked at Matt during the ceremony.
-The Maid of Honor’s speech – HILARIOUS!
However, the best story of the day (and possibly my wedding career!) came right after their first dance. We headed outside for sunset photos prior, but there was no sunset to work with because there was a storm rolling it – so we popped under the willow trees quick and then went back inside. Matt and Kathy started their first dance and the lights flickered twice while they danced to Dan + Shay’s ‘From the Ground Up”. Then it was time for the Father/Daughter dance, the music started, I was able to snap one picture, and boom…. complete darkness! The storm rolled in and the power was completely out at their venue! Everyone continued to celebrate, drink, and talk waiting for the lights to return but after about an hour they realized that might not be a possibility. SO… A bridesmaid found a Bluetooth speaker, the DJ held it up high and guests shined their cellphones while Kathy finished dancing with her dad and Matt danced with his mom. The sweetest and most real moments!
These gorgeous bridal party portraits were taken at Heritage Hill State Historical Park!
We popped outside quick for sunset photos before the rain came!
Matt and Kathy’s first dance! You can see in one of the photos when the power went out for the first time.
Below is the exact moment that the power went out for good during the father/daughter dance!
The show must go on! You can see how the DJ is holding up the Bluetooth speaker above them and guests are shining their cellphones for light.
