Erica & Mikes wedding was nothing short of stunning! From the little homemade details to the grand statement of their love, it was all pulled together beautifully! Ellis Barn in Springfield Oaks is actually where I met this lovely couple, during their open house I had a little area of my work on display. They came up to me with their cute dog in hands & were asking me all about my work! Come to find out, Erica had found me on good ol’ Pinterest, having pinned all of my work in her ‘Wedding Board’ (seriously, SO flattering, I couldn’t believe it) she had NO idea I was a local photographer in her area! While chatting away with them, I could only tell we would all work so well together, and long story longer (yes, I could ramble on for days) they booked with us, and the rest is history!! Well….. I won’t bore you, just scroll on down, and gaze upon this beautiful rustic wedding! =)
A first look with Dad is a MUST! I love seeing their faces, it always pulls on my heart strings, and sometimes can be better than any ‘First Look’ between couples…because it’s your Daddy, and you’re his little girl, it always kills me!! =(
The Ceremony was but a Pinterest dream, from the hand made metal initials of their names made by mike, to the mason jar lanterns hanging as the ceremonies backdrop….it was to-die-for!
Erica & Mike wrote their own vows, and how wonderful a job they both did! If only I could type out their exact words, it would just melt your heart! Mike even got a little chocked up when reading his to Erica, it just went to show how strong his love for her truly is!
As soon as they walked outside of the ceremony, they just embraced one-another, and didn’t let go! The romance & chemistry is so strong here, I rarely ever posed them, they were such naturals, and I was just the fly on the wall! (this is every photographers dream, let-me-tell-you!) =)
We of course had so much fun photographing the bridal parties pictures as well!!! 😉
Now, the dances…the dances were so much fun, Erica & Mike pulled off a fun little number that they had no idea they were even going to do! They just threw it together, right there, in front of all our eyes….and let me tell, it was AWESOME!
Once all of the scheduled dances were over with, everyone piled onto the dance floor, and danced the night away! I just can’t get over how cute Ericas grandparents were when they got to do their dance together, love runs deep in both their families. It just goes to show that Erica & Mike are truly going to have a wonderful happily ever-after!
Congratulations Erica & Mike!! Thank you SO much for allowing K.Polidan Photography to capture all of your special memories! We hope you have a blessed life together full of love, happiness, and joy! – Love, K.Polidan Photography
