Oh my goodness, what a fun wedding day Elizabeth & Kyle had!  When anyone asks me what looks good for photos, I will tell them HAPPY.  Happiness looks great in photos and that is exactly what I photographed  this whole day.  Everyone was so happy and having sooooo much fun.  Especially Elizabeth, she was literally jumping for joy!  I know everyone in attendance had a smile on their face and in their heart watching her & Kyle on their wedding day!!!

They were married at Mildale farm in Edgerton KS.  It really is such a lovely venue!  The barn looked amazing with some great personal touches on the tabletops!  On every table there was homemade wine that Elizabeth’s brother and wife made.  Also a little detail I loved was all of the love themed books on the tables that Elizabeth and her mom had fun shopping thrift stores collecting!  There were wonderful homemade mints~ that was a Markowitz family tradition and delicious petits fours~a Terstriep tradition!

Both of their families are so wonderful and kind.  Both Elizabeth and Kyle’s families were both making sure everyone was having fun and taken care of (thanks again for bringing us yummy treats and wine!).

A big thanks to my 2nd photographer Mike for photographing lots of goodness and my assistant Paige for all the help!

I will start with Elizabeth’s wedding dress and her reception dress which was her grandma’s and was a surprise to her dad when she wore his mother’s dress :)

What a wonderful way to spend the 4th of July weekend!  Jennifer and Matt were married on July 2nd with some fun little 4th of July tributes that went great with the golds and corals!  They had “sparkler” stir sticks, american flag sunglasses, and the guys wore awesome flag socks!  It did rain off and on all day but we still had fun going out for photos :)

Everything was so beautiful ~especially the bride ;)!  Weddings by Hannah had everything running smoothly and I had great help with Mike 2nd shooting and Paige assisting :)  Only mother nature wasn’t cooperating, but it did lead to some future funny stories, ha!

I will start with the girls getting ready!
