Matthew + Bethany | Tying The Knot

7.25.2012
In the month of June I was asked to be a part of Matthew and Bethany's big day... Matt and Beth have gone to church together for years, and as fate would have it... they ended up falling for each other and decided to tie the knot. I have known Bethany since I was probably 12 or 13 years old, so I was so excited when she contacted me and asked me to shoot her wedding. Matthew and Bethany's wedding day was a beautiful, bright, sunshiny day... I arrived at Bethany's house around 7 a.m. to capture all the getting ready festivities...





Love the happy shoes!

My fabulous second-shooter, Kaylen, captured this little image.









Meanwhile on the other side of town... (Yes, I had to rush like a crazy woman 
to get shots of both the bride and groom getting ready! HA)















Beth had a fun bunch of bridesmaids!



Love how the colors just POP against the white!


Rocking the serious look...


Having a little fun...








Love this shot... We were taking photos on Matt's grandpa's farm, and I spotted this tractor... :)

Matthew and Bethany decided to do a First Look before the ceremony! For all you brides out there 
who can't decide if you want to see your groom before the ceremony... I HIGHLY recommend it.
You will end up getting about DOUBLE of the photos of you and the groom... Afterall, pictures are really the only thing you have left once the wedding day is over, plus you won't run into the issue of a serious time crunch after the ceremony trying to get to the reception on time... :) Just my two cents. 






Oh, and did I mention that the reactions are always priceless at a first look?!

Showing off the dress...

















Not only did Matt's grandpa have an awesome farm that we used for pictures. He also owned
this amazing Model A Ford! Yes, please!



Matt & Beth's wedding party had an abundance of adorable children...

Too cute to handle!


It started really heating up outside as we were finishing up the bridal party shots... 
I was definitely glad to head inside the church for Matthew and Bethany's beautiful summer ceremony.





Here comes the bride...



Sweet moment between Beth and her Dad




You're married!!!

On to the reception...






Matt made a special tribute to his dad... So sweet! Oh, and doesn't Matt's dad look like Jim Bob Duggar?!



Thanks Matt and Beth for asking me to be a part of your big day! I wish you many years of happiness!
