Everyone was on their feet. Looking down the aisle in anticipation. He held his breath, holding his hands to keep from shaking. It was silent except for the romantic sound of the music playing in the background. He peaked around the first row to see if she was there yet. At the end of the aisle there she was. The music built as she got closer. You could see the awe on the faces of their family and friends. He held back his tears and as she glided down the aisle his face broke into the biggest grin. She gripped her Dad’s arm as she saw his face and the happy tears started flowing. As she gazed at him with nothing but love in her eyes she couldn’t help but match his smile. He took her in his arm and they ascended the stairs to the rest of their lives.
Courtney and Zack’s romantic Frankenmuth wedding was filled with love, and joy, and romance. Everything was so incredibly gorgeous! Starting with Courtney and her bridesmaids to the church and the reception venue. St. Lorenz Lutheran Church was by far the most breathtaking church I have had the pleasure of photographing. Courtney and Zack were super laid back which allowed us to find the most perfect spot for portraits. Seriously, the images speak for themselves! My jaw dropped as soon as I started editing. I think most of the credit goes to my subjects on that one though! I loved how unique they made their day to them. Instead of choosing to cut a cake like most everyone else they did a “first scoop”. They got ice cream and cones and scooped a cone for the two of them to eat at the same time! Then everyone else got to enjoy mini ice creams and adorable cupcakes from Zehnder’s.
Courtney and Zack you two have been so amazing to work with! I love how everything related to your wedding has been so uniquely you! Your engagement session at Concordia University where you two met was so much fun. All the planning leading up to the day you were so easy and laid back to work with. On the day of the wedding both of you were excited and happy to be marrying your best friend. Neither of you could wait to found out what God has in store for the rest of your lives. I believe He has some amazing plans for people as loving, sweet, and incredible as you two!
