"I have dreamt of this day since you were a little girl..." said Mikayla's dad as they shared a moment before she was off to see her husband-to-be. Tears glistened in his eyes and Mikayla followed suit within seconds. I knew that from that point forward Mikayla and Andy's wedding would be filled with precious occasions like this.
While shooting weddings, Lee and I believe in organizing the day in a way that allows you to revel in the moments like Mikayla's with her dad. Our heart is to capture these short but impactful encounters that will cause a "ripple effect" for generations to come; and the photographs will be used to aid in passing on values of love and quality relationships.
Andy and Mikayla had two parts to their wedding day. The beautiful ceremony that was officiated by her dad Matt Mallek, the lead pastor at Refuge church, in their own backyard, followed by a dinner and dance under hundreds of cafe lights at Eron's Event Barn. We loved seeing their personalities come through in the details... especially the iced coffee and donut wall! It was a day to remember.
To Andy and Mikayla:
It is always a special privilege to capture the milestones of the people we have watched grow up! We thoroughly enjoyed our meetings together as we processed the vision of your special day... and it was perfect. It was a true reflection of your hearts for each other and for the people in your lives.
Until our next meeting...
Ann + Lee
