It was a very chilly day when loved ones arrived for Alex & Michelle's wedding at Thousand Pines Christian Camp. It was the perfect setting for the outdoorsy duo and just a perfect setting for a wedding in general. Crisp air and wind blowing though the huge pine trees all around. When Jake and I arrived that morning we were instantly greeted by their families who were busy setting up. They treated us like part of the family. The love that was flowing through that place is probably what kept everyone warm. Alex & Michelle are just the most lively and giving couple one could ever meet. You could tell how they have touched other people's lives just by talking to their wedding guests...each and every one of them had great stories and beautiful things to say about them. That is what made this wedding so awesome! Working with two great people like that just warmed our hearts. However, our bodies were FREEZING in the 32 degree weather for outdoor portraits, but they were such troopers and just laughed about it the entire time enjoying the first moments of being husband and wife.
At the end of the evening, despite our tired feet, Jake and I drive home with huge smiles on our faces and fun memories about the days events!
What a wonderful way to close 2014!
Let's just say these rings shots were VERY tricky with huge gusts of wind!
LOVE these invitations!!! The front was laser cut into a tree shape and Alex & Michelle hand painted EACH and EVERY little green leaf on there. Turned out amazing!
While the girls were getting all pretty for the wedding, the boys enjoyed some MAN time at the rock wall, zip line, and ropes course! Let's just say Jake had a blast too! ;)
The games came to close and the boys got ready... Alex, lookin' SHARP!
They were really just bundled together for warmth!
And off to do some photos as husband and wife!!!
They aren't excited or anything! ;)
Her smile was contagious!
Congratulations Alex & Michelle. Thank you for allowing us to be apart of your FUN day!
