Ty and Kelsey's Wedding day started off with a fresh dusting of snow that coated the ground. That's all you want for your "Winter Wonderland" dream wedding, right?! Well, Kelsey got it! It was amazing. Hope Lutheran Church was the perfect place for Ty and Kelsey to vow to do life together. Kelsey's wedding dress was amazing. Her bouquet...Yes! She MADE it herself. Does anyone else think being a florist is in her future?! I do!
Ty and Kelsey - First Prayer
If you guys know me, you know that I love First Looks - or in this case a "First Prayer". Ty and Kelsey made the choice to not see each until Kelsey took her first steps down the aisle; however, they made it a priority to pray for the day and for each other before the ceremony. This was such a special moment and one of the reasons I LOVE being a photographer. We also had a special "guest bride" with Kate (Fun Fact: I was Kate's wedding photographer as well!). After the couple had their "first prayer" Kate and Dallas joined in to pray over the couple! Friendships like this...you don't see often!
Ty and Kelsey - Ceremony
The Ceremony was next! It was filled with truth, laughter, emotion and joy! Hope Lutheran Church was a great venue to work with and Ty and Kelsey finally got to see each other and say "I do". They vowed to love each other, grow with each other, and do life together forever!
Ty and Kelsey - Bridal Party
Throughout my years of shooting weddings, I've had a ton of fun bridal parties! Ty and Kelsey's friends did NOT disappoint! Not only did they have my laughing behind the camera the whole day, but they were troopers through the cold weather and snow! Some bridesmaids might have put on some fuzzy socks at the reception - but that is OK! Wouldn't have asked for anything different with this bridal party!
ty and Kelsey - Portraits
Drumroll please!!! The moment you have all been waiting for - these gorgeous Bridal Portraits! As much as the bridal party were troopers - they had breaks! Ty and Kelsey were out in the cold and snow the whole time and nothing but smiles from them!
Ty and Kelsey - reception
Ty and Kelsey ended the night with their friends and family at their cozy hockey themed reception! No 'clinking' of glasses for a kiss - instead, score a goal! It was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
Ty and Kelsey - Thank YOU for allowing JHicks Photography to capture your perfect day! It was a pleasure and honor to be able to spend the day with you both! Anyone reading, please leave a comment for the bride and groom below - I am sure they would love to read them!
