Shelby & Brian | Charming Winter Wedding in Stevens Point

Shelby and Brian shared a memorable day surrounded by family and friends!  I started the morning out at math salon where the girls were getting pampered and dolled up for the day.  There were plenty of smiles and family present for the morning giggles.  Shelby’s sister did her make-up for here and there were some really sweet ‘sister’ moments shared while she worked on that and little Annabelle (Shelby’s mini-me & bride) got her curls set and crown in!
I headed into the church to meet with with the guys and capture their details for the day.  I was absolutely in LOVE with their church, it was so beautiful and I loved the architecture.  After Shelby slipped into her gown and Brian finished his last minute details it was time to get these two married!
I have to be honest here, I was in totally tears when I started choosing photos for the sneak peek as I noticed little Annabelle was in tears watching her momma walk down the aisle to her daddy- just like everyone else in the room!  But it just really tugged on my heart to see her so happy to see her mom walking down the aisle it brought her to tears- what a sweet little thing!  They shared a beautiful ceremony surrounded by family and friends before sealing it with a kiss! 
The weather was less than corporative, so they opted to do most of their photos at the church.  I don’t mean it was a little windy outside- we had a full blow ice storm with 35 mile an hour winds- outdoor photography was sincerely not an option.  But that’s fine- let’s embrace the day and have a blast anyways; and that was exactly what we did.  Their church offered a lovely backdrop for photos and they all rocked it!  We decided since we didn’t have much time and roads were quite nasty to send the bridal party to the reception, and make just one little stop for Brian and Shelby’s bridal session.  We didn’t have much time, the sun was long gone, but we worked with what we had and they pulled of some stellar amazing images in just 20 minutes!  I LOVE their bridal session and how unique it looks- they truly have some unique imagery I hope they cherish for years!
We carefully headed to the party where they shared an amazing dinner with their loved ones.  Some great speeches, many laughs, and some tears were present thorough the speeches and first dances.  After that it was a dance party and they danced the night away!  Congratulations again Brian and Shelby!  Thank you for asking me to share in your special day!  A special thanks to Jeremy Albright for his amazing assistance!
