About two hours outside of my natural habitat and incidentally one hour from the home of my adolescence, I found myself, camera in hand. It was for none other than the union of Mary and Troy, a city meets country, snuggly pair.
When I first arrived, final touches were being placed on the floral items which were supplied by Fifty Flowers. They assembled their own boutonnières. Mary and Troy met at a spacious park in Ellsworth. Their first look was held on a bridge just big enough for the both of them. To say it was picturesque is a terribly misleading statement. Seeing them see each other for the first time was almost too sweet. I couldn't help but step back (while taking pictures of course) to give them more space to just enjoy the moment.
Shortly afterwards, they joined their friends and family for a ceremony at the St. Bernard Parish in Ellsworth, KS. This time was supported by loved ones as they provided their musical talents during the service. Afterwards, their guests gathered outside the church in the warmth of the sun to wish them well as they escaped in Troy's Mustang after the ceremony.
Their reception was held at the Celebration Centre in Lyons, KS. It proved to be an ideal location for dining, dancing, and even some sunset photos. There, even more wildflowers could be found, as well as several jars of blackberry jam that were made specifically by the beautiful bride.
The little details they included throughout the day made the wedding feel as though I was invited to their home for a celebration, and that they really cared about making everyone feel comfortable and cared for on their wedding day. It was something that truly set their set their wedding apart. I feel warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. :)
Take a look at their sweet, country wedding with oodles of class and lots of love.
