I have met one of THE most nicest couple in the world. Their wedding day was full of love, sunshine (very bright and HOT sunshine), and laughter! Both Andrea and Zach were calm, cool, and collective on their big day and that makes photographing this lovely couple easy and so much fun! I loved everything about their wedding from her dress, the decorations, the venue and ANDREA and ZACH.
They had their ceremony and reception at Sandelie West Wedding and Events. The venue was beautiful and they had a house for the girls to get ready in. They are currently remodeling a cabin that is located on the property to be used as another getting ready area. The guys got ready at Andrea and Zach's home while I followed the girls around the property documenting their day.
HOW DID THEY MEET AND HOW DID HE PROPOSE?
WEDDING PLANNING EXPERIENCE
At first I felt overwhelmed with the amount of tasks to get done in eight months, but as I started checking off boxes and getting everything gathered, I felt more at ease with the process. My fiance Zach was really great about helping me put everything in perspective whenever I got myself worked up, and we tackled most everything as a team which really helped (aside from decor - lots of input and help from my bridesmaids and grandmother!). Overall, I feel that it went really well and was about as enjoyable as throwing an event this big can be. -Andrea
ADVICE TO BRIDES WHO ARE CURRENTLY PLANNING THEIR WEDDING
Remember the whole reason for having a wedding, that you and your fiance are taking on life as a team and the day is to celebrate that union. Sure the details need hammering out, but they're not worth strain in your relationship with your fiance, family members, or friends. Try to enjoy it as much as possible, because just like that the big day is here.
A NOTE TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM
Andrea & Zach,
I wish you the very best on this wonderful journey of building a new life together as one. You are a stunning and wonderful couple and want to say CONGRATULATIONS to you both! Thank you again for letting me a part of your joyful occasion and may the love and happiness you felt that day shine through the years! All the best, Jenn and team.
