Elyse + Kevin’s Park Place wedding photography

I met Elyse for the first time about a year ago.  We met over coffee at Starbucks, because this is just before I opened my studio, and I was struck by her level of sweetness and how it seemed she knew exactly what she wanted.  My good friend Hannah is good friends with Elyse.  Hannah semi-professionally photographs now and then so when Elyse got engaged she proposed Hannah with a choice:  bridal party or photographer.  Hannah chose to join Elyse’s wedding day as a member of the bridal party and referred Elyse to me.  Lucky me!

As I drove to my first location I was struck by the perfect weather.  I do feel like I have said this a lot this summer, but I have had my ideal weather for almost every wedding day!  Anyway, what was particularly notable about this gorgeous day was just how brilliantly blue and rich green the sky and grass around us was!  It felt like I stepped into a story book!  In fact, the whole wedding day held that feel, from photographing the eclectic array of pink bridesmaids dresses to photographing the bride and groom at sunset.

Elyse is not your regular girl.  She is one of those rare beauties who’s most beautiful qualities are her pure, honest smile and her sold out heart for the Lord.  And that, absolutely, is not to say she isn’t incredibly gorgeous because look at her!  She has a sensitive, compassionate spirit and is so considerate of everyone.

Kevin is, some how, just as compassionate, sensitive, and considerate of everyone… but particularly his new bride.  On the wedding day it warmed my heart seeing him so gently and wholly care for his new bride.  It was absolutely one of those moments I could tell, all too well, why these two were perfect for each other.

This day was my photographer’s dream.  The weather made my heart sing and creativity spike, the couple was so endearing and sweet, the details were charming, unique, and lovely, the reception venue was so hospitable and beautiful, there was a photo booth and an anniversary dance (my two favorite reception specialties) and I got to spend some time with my lovely friend Hannah.

Elyse + Kevin, it was such a blessing and joy to be a part of your special day!  You two are going to bring so much genuine love and care into the communities you serve together!  Love you both :)
