Before I tell you all about how awesome Elizabeth & Ken’s wedding was – I’ve done something a little different with this blog post. Usually there’s ONE blog post per event and I combine color & black / white images to tell the story – except with this one, I felt that I could create TWO posts, one in color and one in black & white – just for fun 😉 This one is all in color -bright, fun and colorful. Tomorrow I’ll post the yang to this yin, and I’ll be curious to see which one you like better!
I recently had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Elizabeth and Ken at the Brier Creek Country Club on a gorgeous sunny day in May.
One of the first things that I love about this couple is that they’ve been together for over 10 years – so they are truly partners, very much in love and both families are already very comfortable with each other so it made for a very relaxed, open and emotional day. There was a lot of humor during the ceremony about them ‘finally’ getting married 😉
Another really cool thing about Elizabeth is that she’s of Czechloslovakian heritage, (as in, her parents are actually from there!) so she made a point to bring that into play as well…. and there will be more on that later!
Elizabeth had a fantastic wedding team to help make her day perfect…. love the look? Here’s who she worked with:
Catering & Venue: Brier Creek Country Club
Florist: Dogwood Tree Floral Designs
Lighting & PA: Island Sounds
Planner: Sally Oakley Weddings & Events
2nd Photographer: Nieto Photography
Elizabeth & Ken opted for a “first look” (which was AWESOME) and I loved the shots of her heading out to meet him!Then this happened. Elizabeth put on a traditional Chezch outfit to dance with her dad. It was priceless! And, the Best man’s toast ‘assisted’ by his daughter – too cute!For real?!? So, this band has been a favorite of Elizabeth and Ken’s for years. They are from NY but came down for the wedding – and as the night was winding down – Ken gets UP ON STAGE and plays guitar and sings to his bride. I died.Then SHE JOINS HIM. It just gets better and better!
Elizabeth & Ken – I wish you all the very best life has to offer – glad you are ‘finally’ married!!!
