A Peace Lutheran Wedding and Fort Riley Convention Center Party!
Why hello!! Last weekend I worked with this awesome couple as they vowed to spend their lives loving one another and then partied the night away! The wedding colors were a deep red that was perfect for a Fall wedding, combined with light gray suits worn by the gentlemen. The beautiful florals were designed by Kistner's Flowers in Manhattan. Big Daddy Brooks provided the DJ/Video services for the day, and the wedding cake was prepared by the local Hy-Vee bakery.
We started off at Peace Lutheran Church in Manhattan where the couples got dressed and prepared the final touches before walking down the aisle. The Bride's pastor led the ceremony surrounded by friends and family from as far away as the Philippines; it was a lovely ceremony and included the lighting of a unity candle.
Afterwards we took some family portraits for both sides of the family prior to heading out to the Riley Convention Center for the reception. The weather and the lighting were Gorgeous!! They picked a wonderful day to get married! The wedding party and I had some fun before heading in so we could snap some fun shots before the sun went down. It was during this time that the personalities really shone through. They were a fun bunch and we certainly got some entertaining photos. The Bride & Groom and I were able to sneak back out after dinner for some photos with the two of them during the final moments of sunset.
Big Daddy Brooks kept everyone involved and having fun; he did a great job!! The reception included the cutting of the cake, toasts, first dance, parent dances, honeymoon dance, and the shoe game and the rest of the time many of the guests danced the night away and really enjoyed themselves. I particularly enjoyed the toast given by the Bride's sister and maid of honor; it made for a great laugh to start off the evening! During the reception the groom's parents also presented the couple with a gorgeous quilt handmade by his mother, grandmother, and a couple of other women in his family. It was really fun watching everyone take part in the reception and have a great time.
Alaina and Cameron, thank you so much for the memories and choosing me to document them for you. It was so much fun getting to spend this day with you both and see how the two of you balance one another out so well. You make a wonderful couple and I pray that God blesses your marriage abundantly as you share life together, and learn how to drive each others' vehicles ;) .
