When it comes to photography, I love color, moments and a good story. Please check out my blogs to see recent work.
Karissa and Ryan’s may have started planning their wedding with the mindset of keeping it small, but a popular couple like this has too much love to go around to be small.
Karissa and Ryan had some style, and so did the boys! Have you seen cuter shoes for kids? The boys gave Ryan some healthy competition for mom’s attention, but luckily there is more than enough love to go around.
Karissa was stunning in a lace fitted wedding gown, some of the sparkliest shoes I have ever seen and some elegant jewelry. She completed her look with an intricate up-do and a natural yet romantic make up finish. Karissa’s bride squad stunned in mismatched dresses that varied in silhouette and color and looked all around fabulous if you ask me. The gentlemen kept it classic with matching suits, black bow ties, and some pretty snazzy watches. Ryan stood out wearing a navy tux, layering that with a grey vest and red tie. A lot of grooms choose to match their groomsmen, but it was really nice to see Ryan stand out.
Although church ceremony’s can typically be pretty straightforward, this couple had Father Bob, a young, cool and hip priest at St. Helena’s as their officiant. In other words, their ceremony had some pretty great personality thrown into it that had everyone laughing in their seats.
The reception was no exception. There was a roar of cheering as Karissa and Ryan were welcomed into the reception room introduced as husband and wife. A hilarious toast revealing a growing bromance between the groom and brother of the bride set the tone for a laughter filled night with guests who got up and took over the dance floor all night.
