Tina and Jerad shared a hot and steamy day surrounded by family and friends; their love brought some mid-summer weather in the middle of September! (What did ya think I was talking about?!) I started the morning off with the details while the guys and girls were getting ready, and lemme tell ya, it was a party!!! They had a totally of 29 wedding party members; the love overfloweth for the day and there was an abundance of giggles and laughter! I was in awe of Tina’s dress- the beading and details were exquisite! Her bouquet was carefully and thoughtfully designed by her sister-in-law, Sandy of Flowers of the Field.
The guys were looking sharp and it was all hands on deck for this wedding party so I had my associate, Jeremy, capture some great photos of the guys before the ceremony. Every wedding party member was their family: their kids, sisters, brothers, cousins, in-laws, nieces, and nephews were all a part of their big day and surrounded them thought the day with love and shenanigans!
Tina and the ladies arrived and it was so much fun to capture the bustle and business of the room! They certainly had plenty of helping hands to get everyone dressed before Tina slipped into her gown, with help form her mom. And oh my goodness was she breathtaking! That gown was the perfect choice for her day and she totally rocked it!
Family and friends gathered for their ceremony at Flowers of the Field. The wedding party was lined up ready to go, and guests took their seats. The processional started and it was lovely- all the family members there to support the marriage of Jerad and Tina. Then, as Tina made her way down the aisle escorted by her father and son, Jerad’s eyes filled with emotion. It was one of the most sincere and raw moments I have had the pleasure to capture! Their ceremony was filled with love and performed by Tina’s cousin; it was really quite memorable.
We took a few family portraits and some fun bridal party photos afterwards before going into their bridal session. Tina and Jerad did an amazing job working with us in the heat- it was nearly 90* (if not hotter) with humidity making it feel nearly like a steamy 100 degrees! But you would never guess it looking at their photos! They share a youthful love full of passion and a deep understanding of one another, its really quite special to see.
It was then off to a night full of dancing, live music, laughter, and smiles! They invited family and friends to Memories in Plover for a tasty dinner before dancing the night away. Congrats again Jerad and Tina! It was an honor to capture your day!
