Another Monday but ooohhh, not just another wedding!! Today’s bride + groom, + their big day, are something a little different for us over here at MMP!! Justin + Emily LOVE + value the people in their lives—their friends + their family—and so their big day was all about these people!! Our main job as photographers was to capture these relationships + people all gathered to celebrate Justin + Emily : ) Candid, in-the-moment, photojournalistic type of photos that are a little bit of a different style than we normally shoot! However, what a blast we had!! It was so fun to just be present with J + E’s guests + photograph the action of the day as it all unfolded. And in the meantime, the bride + the groom spent the majority of their time talking with + investing in their guests who had come from near + far to celebrate : )
You will also notice that Justin + Emily, AND their families + friends, love to dance. I mean, these people have got it going on!! The first dances were some of the most unique + fun we have ever seen!! Choreography, SURPRISE dances, twists + turns + twirls … we saw it all!! (I’ll admit, it was super hard for me to not just throw down my camera + join them out on the dance floor!!!) Hehe : )
J + E, congratulations. We are so thrilled for you to begin this next phase of your lives … traveling like crazy together, dancing in the kitchen, + growing together in your new, unified walk with Christ!! So, so exciting : ) Thanks for reminding us of how important the people + relationships in our lives are. We just think you guys are so great : ) Many, many blessings to you two on this new adventure!!! Xo, M
A bit of a trend you will see unfold … Emily loves color, especially pink!!
Justin!! haha! So calm + cool right before the ceremony is about to begin : )
And the adventure of figuring out how to fold the pocket squares …
The bridesmaid’s shoes + flowers matched their groomsmen’s socks, suspenders + bow ties : )
So classic + sweet … I love this one!!
Another favorite : )
Their reception was at the West Bend Country Club!! Such a pretty venue!!
Emily’s parent’s are bee farmers so they gave honey from their farm away as their favors!
Emily’s parents tag-teamed the toast + it was SO incredibly sweet : )
And the craziness of the reception begins!!! Guests had to demonstrate a kiss for the bride + the groom to do if they wanted them to kiss + let’s just say, it got a little wild!!
And then we snuck away for some sunset shots–first up, parents of the bride + groom!!
These shirt buttons belonged to Emily’ dad’s father : )
Emily gave these earrings to Justin’s mom for the wedding : )
Favorites!!! So good you two!!
Let the dancing begin!!
Just when you think they are doing a normal father-daughter dance …
… dad surprises the bride with this little number–and she knew EVERY MOVE by heart!!
