Briar Ridge Country Club | Shererville, Indiana
Eeek! This wedding goes on my long list of favorites. Kim booked me in January and I did not get to meet Eli until about two weeks before the wedding when I met with him and Kim to finalize the timeline. One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer, is developing such a bond with my clients leading up to the big day and on the day of. I really got to know Kim and Eli yesterday, even in just those short 8 hours. One thing I knew for sure is how simply and deeply in love they are and completely relaxed with one another. Because of this, I loved capturing Kim and Eli together. They were pros at posing but keeping natural, relaxed, and of course, in love.
Eli now holds the record for my favorite groom anticipation and first look at his bride. That alone told me enough about Eli and I knew without a doubt he is crazy about his now WIFE! As Kim and Eli hammered the nails in the ‘First Fight Box’, Kim’s talented brother sang a song which made their ceremony that much special. It was very obvious that Kim is blessed with two brothers that absolutely adore her. And once Eli’s brother and sister gave their speeches, it was evident that they both had incredible siblings.
This wedding was filled with so much love and not just from Eli and Kim but from everyone that surrounded them that day. There were at least 10 couples that remained on the dance floor who were married for 25 years or more, (one couple at 55 years), which shows that they have many couples to look up to for guidance and inspiration.
While they may have had loved ones missing, they made sure to honor them through out the evening which again made their day even more special.
Kim and Eli, thank you for allowing me to capture your special day. I loved every minute of it. Go relax and enjoy LAS VEGAS!
