Kelsey & Erik

Congratulations to Kelsey + Erik Swanson!

On December 16, 2017, my very last wedding of the year. Kelsey + Erik was married in a cozy small environment with close family and friends at the stunning Bay Point Inn.

It was cold, and it had snowed the night before leaving a clean blanket of fresh snow that made the lake behind the hotel go on for what seemed like forever. It was an early morning winter ceremony and the clouds gave us an even light, making every area of the grounds fantastic!

So, there’s always excitement during the early mornings of getting ready.  This time it just so happened to be ME that caused all of the excitement.  While we were photographing in the hotel room to create the gorgeous photograph below, we set off the smoke alarms.  I had used ‘Atmospheric Aerosol’ to create a smoky look, and we were able to nail the shot very fast.  As soon as we were done.  BAM.  The alarms went off.  So, a huge thank you to this amazing bride that kept her cool when the alarms went off and were completely unfazed!!!

During the ceremony I watched close family members wipe away tears of joy, and the toasts were just as amazing.  Father of the groom had one of the most touching speeches I have ever heard.  “Kelsey, thank you for choosing my son!”  Of course I cried, I always do.

Kelsey chose to go with The Backyard Gardner for her floral arrangements and I have to say that these are the best fake bouquets I have ever seen.  And a huge shout-out to The Backyard Gardner for the boutonniere’s as well, they were so easy to put on and take off.  They were great!!!

Thank you again Kelsey and Erik for letting me there to capture your special day!  I wish you both all the blessings!!
