Kelsey and Brandon’s Grand Superior Lodge Wedding was dreamy. These two have been waiting for this day ever since high school when he locked lips with “The Kelsey Kyle” and asked her to be his sugarplum. The excitement was high and nothing was going to stop them from having the ceremony they dreamed of outdoors. Not even a little rain.
When I arrived I found Kelsey in her cabin getting ready with all of her closest girlfriends. After a long awaited hug and congratulations, I asked for her details to photograph like the rings, jewelry and so on. Kelsey said that she didn’t have a lot of details or sentimental items as she looked around the room. Thats when I asked her about perfume and she said she doesn’t normally wear perfume but she had one special for that day. She pulled out a near empty bottle of Shania Twain perfume from a wooden box and told me it was her moms. Her aunt had been saving it for her since her moms passing and suggested that she use the last few drops of her mothers favorite perfume on her wedding day. Through misty eyes I told her that was a beautiful way to have a piece of her mother with her on her wedding day and we captured her using the last few drops of the bottle.
As the ceremony time neared closer all watched the forecast but the radar wasn’t giving us much hope. The rain was expected to continue until dark. Brandon requested that the DJ play “Ironic” by Alanis Morisette and we all kept singing “It’s like raaaain on your wedding day..” (its stuck in your head now isn’t it??)
Before the ceremony started umbrellas were handed out and we all gathered outside to witness this darling couple promise forever. Just before they said “I do” the rain stopped , they kissed and everyone cheered for the new Mr & Mrs Kuether!
