To say that this day was amazing would be an understatement! A few days prior to Riley and Catherine's big day at The Waters Oshkosh I received a call from Catherine stating that the venue was invaded by little mayflies! I didn't think it would be that bad but when I looked at the weather and saw that there were SO MANY mayflies that doppler radar picked them up...I was shocked! We rolled with the punches and still got amazing results that I am so happy with! We started the day by getting ready at The Waters - which was the perfect setting!
Riley and Catherine - First Look
If you are a potential bride and wonder about doing a "first look", my answer will always be YES! Do it! Catherine decided to do a special first look with her Father, which is always a special moment for a photographer to capture. There was true excitement and emotion that filled the room when Catherine's father saw her for the very first time. She made a beautiful bride!
Riley and Catherine - Ceremony
With the mayflies in full hatch, The Waters turned their beautiful main floor into the perfect ceremony for Riley and Catherine! The light was beautiful and the setting felt warm and intimate, just what Riley and Catherine wanted! The ceremony was funny, filled with emotion, and perfect in every way!
Riley and Catherine - Bridal Party
After the ceremony, the Bridal Party geared up and we found ourselves downtown Oshkosh with some amazing brick, vines, and all things amazing! They were such a fun Party to work with. They kept things light hearted and filled with laughter. This made for some great genuine images!
Riley and Catherine - Bride and Groom Portraits
You know what's next...Bride and Groom Portraits! Can you tell these two are in LOVE?! I can! They loved getting to spend time with each other. They were open to crazy ideas that I had. And the images turned out so beautifully! Wow! Loving these images, even 6 months later!
Riley and Catherine - Reception
Let's PARTY!! After all this amazing day had to offer, Riley and Catherine were ready to dance the night away with their closest family and friends! They dance floor was packed! The donut wall (that Catherine made herself, might I add) was amazing and the donuts were to die for!
Reliving this day through these images has a smile on my face! Riley and Catherine, thank you for trusting JHicks Photography to capture your big day. The images area amazing and your love for each other was so evident!
