These two are so photogenic and comfortable with each other. Their wedding was beautiful and brimming with emotions. I felt it portrayed their love for each other perfectly!

A rehersal dinner

A rehersal dinner

Earlier in the year I did an engagement session for one of my favorite couples. You can see the pictures from that rustic, country session by clicking here.

Well, their big day has finally come! Well, the rehersal dinner anyway. I went to the location and snapped some shots of the little details the grooms parents included in the decorations.

This family is western and rustic and their true charm showed through with the decor, food, and atmosphere. I could not think of better people to spend my evening with than these folks.

A sneak peek…

The drink table was so cute!

These tea dispensers could not have been a better match for the evening.

Each table had a can of silk sunflowers! Perfectly simple.

Camp plates, bandanas and a wicker basket to tie it all together!

These smores boxes were really cute and each box had a tag proclaiming the wedding date and names of the bride and groom.

What’s more southern than watermelon and more American than blueberries??

One last kiss before they part ways for the night. Next viewing will be the “first look” at the wedding!

I know it is not always standard procedure to attend the rehersal dinner as the photographer but I am so happy I was able to be there and get some shots of this night. As a personal friend of this family, I am honored to share this special time with these folks. I could not be happier for these two and I can’t wait to see her as a beautiful bride walking down the aisle tomorrow.
