Love these two! After getting ready in the brides home in New Richmond, the ladies and I headed out of town to the beautiful ceremony location in Amery. These two decided to keep things traditional and wait for her to walk down the aisle before seeing each other for the first time. I just love the intensity of emotions that waiting brings, not to mention capturing that perfect moment when the groom sees his beautiful bride is absolutely priceless!

We still managed to do most of the formal photographs before the ceremony, being very careful to keep the blushing bride out of site of her husband to be. The ceremony was outside in a gorgeous courtyard surrounded by a white picket fence with flowers, shrubs and trees. The whole area was decorated so beautifully, from the homemade signs, the wood and flower filled mason jar center pieces, to the ladder photo…
