An Outdoor Lover’s Dream Wedding │ Michelle & Allen

Michelle & Allen love the outdoors. Camping, hunting, fishing, you name it, they love it. So they had to incorporate that into their wedding day! Personal touches that they came up with based on their lives, their personalities and their favorite past-times. Not ones they found on Pinterest and decided to use because they’d been repined a thousand times, but ones that captured the essence of who they are. Cowboy boots, antlers, line dances and a camouflage garter – it was perfection!!
Michelle got ready surrounded by her family. She was calm, but excited about the day that was starting to unfold.

Again, I had the pleasure of working with Kerensa Leigh Photography , and she went to hang out with the guys to get a few pics of them getting ready. Allen wasn’t super stoked about the idea, but was convinced by his beautiful bride to allow a few minutes of pictures 😉 Good way to start a marriage you two!! Compromise is what it’s all about.

The ceremony was held at Cornerstone CRC . I love it when churches have a balcony because it allows us to have an awesome 2nd perspective of the service.

To signify the strength of their bond and their marriage, they tied a fishermans knot in front of friends and family.

Following the ceremony, we took off with the bridal party to this beautiful location. I had driven by it quite a few times, and finally summoned the nerve to call the owner to see if we could get permission to shoot there. He was ok with it, and how thankful are we?? What a gorgeous spot!!

I love the first dance. It’s the perfect time for the couple to just relax, have a quiet moment together and soak in the fact that they just got married.
