There is so much to say about this wedding…where do I begin? What an enormously gracious set of families. Lots and lots of smiles, laughs, hugs, and overall good vibes and loving support for a wonderful couple. Connor and Nick are quite the match — easy-to-please and just happy to be with one another. They are lucky to have found the love that they have, and I’m so happy to have been there to document their special day of unity. <3
There were so many heartfelt moments at this wedding – moments that magnify purpose. Beautiful ceremony at Trinity, downtown Lafayette, with a lovely musical number. After the ceremony, the bride and groom, myself and the bridal party hopped into a hummer limo and headed toward McCallister Park for photos. It was probably the windiest day of the year (hence some of the wind-blown photos :)), but that didn’t stop us from venturing out to get some wedding party images. The limo driver must’ve been feeling extra zealous and offered to pull the hummer limo up onto the grassy field at the park! A great wedding party to work with – some hilarious antics every step of the way, but never out of control or difficult to work with.
Connor mentioned to me that she wasn’t as concerned with prep photos, and mainly wanted to document the ceremony and reception, and the good times she hoped people would be having. It’s no wonder – she knows that with this bunch of people, there would be many celebratory photo opportunities at the reception. There were lots of kids, too. Three flower girls and three ring-bearers. And it was the kids who largely dominated the dance floor! And dancing…this group knows how to tear up the dance floor, no doubt. The first-dance was probably my favorite I’ve ever photographed…they sang to each other the whole time. I couldn’t choose just one photo, I had to include several. It was awesome to see such happiness between two people.
I had the pleasure of working with Sarah LaMar, who took some amazing photos, and is all-around good company to work with!
These are just a small(ish) collection of my favorites images from Connor and Nick’s wedding day!
