Melissa & Brent; April 10th, Columbus, NE

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing one of my best friends weddings. It was an absolutely joy to work with someone that is such a dear friend, and be able to have so much fun with it! We started off the morning with a few drinks at the hair salon to cool the girls nerves! It was probably one of my favorite hair sessions to date! I got some AMAZING shots and the girls were so gorgeous how could I not! Then onto the church! I had yet to photograph at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Columbus so I was pumped to see the inside, since the outside was gorgeous. And yes, the inside was just as stunning! Melissa and Brent chose to stay traditional, and not see each other till the ceremony, so formals started with the guys and went back and forth from the girls to the guys as people began to arrive. We even had some time to go a few blocks down for some really fun pictures in the down town area!!! They had a gorgeous ceremony and their first looks at each other even brought me to tears! Good thing I can hide behind my camera ;) After the ceremony, they had the releasing of doves....GORGEOUS! And then we continued on with formals. I could tell everyone was exhausted, and wanted to party, so we made it short and sweet! Then onto the party! I loved all the hand made decorations and the fish in each vase was so neat! I even got to take one home, which later ended in a little "fall", but I was able to save one of the fish! Anyways, they had a crazy wedding party, and such fun families to work with! I got some great fun shots and I can't wait to show you and your families the rest! I had a blast and thanks so much for having me part of your special day! Next time a little less crying at the reception for me! I guess my best friends wedding really got to me :) Love you both and have fun on your amazing island honeymoon!!! Enjoy your sneak peaks and video!
