We first talked about these two last summer when we did their engagement session in Hastings with what we’d affectionately call the little blue truck – a cute light blue Ford one! When they had originally reached out, they were only looking for engagement photos, but when we found out their wedding day was going to be at the beautiful Breezy Point Resort & Golf Course, we excitedly said we’d love to travel for their day. Flash forward more than a year later, and we made it! These two overcame so many obstacles along the way, so many ups and downs, and yet they pushed forward, excited to step into the stage of man and wife.
The guests were hanging on every word. The bride’s dad held the microphone loosely as he shared story after story and detail after detail about the lovely couple before him – you would think that he was mostly sharing his pride for his beautiful daughter but at the end of his speech, he took a sudden turn and talked about the family the bride, Andrea, was marrying into. “They’re such a perfect match family-wise and we are so blessed,” he said and soon, the groom, Charles, was in tears, his mother was on tips of tears smiling in the direction of her son, and the bridesmaids were asking each other for tissues. We are always up for destination weddings and the chance to enjoy a road trip or travel so when Charles and Andrea reached out to us about being their wedding photographers, we were all in! Heading to photograph their beautiful wedding day at Usher's Ferry in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was amazing -- and what was even better is that it was about 20 degrees warmer there then in our hometown of Cottage Grove, Minnesota.
We had such a great time visiting California to capture Nate & Chantelle's wedding a month ago! They are an amazing couple and throughout their wedding day it was obvious to see their servant hearts, desire to have Christ in the center of their relationship and day, and love for those around them. Also, Chantelle deserves some serious kudos -- I saw her getting her bridesmaids & mother ready more than getting herself ready for her big day! I am so excited about sharing these photos and can't believe it's already been a month! Congrats, Nate & Chantelle!
