Alec + Kaley
Pavilion at Sandy Pines | Demotte, Indiana
We met Kaley and Alec at their engagement session last year. And what we quickly learned is how much Alec hates pictures, yet Kaley loves them. But the running joke is that Alec may hate them, but he is so great at them! (And it’s only obvious that Kaley is, too) One of the most photogenic couples, ever! And even though photos aren’t Alec’s favorite thing, he is definitely a trooper through them all. So since meeting them, we had been greatly anticipating their big day. And it did NOT disappoint.
We always expect our July weddings to be hot, which it was, but honestly, we were just thankful that it wasn’t showing rain! We arrived at our favorite venue (Sandy Pines) to a relaxed group of ladies preparing for their best friends wedding. And it didn’t take long for us to realize that these two are surrounded by the greatest family and friends, who have some of the best personalities. Their entire group made it easy to capture the greatest photos.
The speeches from the maid of honor and the best man helped us to get to know Alec and Kaley even more as they shared sweet words and their favorite memories. But our favorite was the sweetest speech from the father of the bride. His speech consisted of talking about his little girl, honoring his late son, and welcoming Alec into the family which didn’t leave a dry eye.
We get the privilege of sharing pretty much one entire day with our brides and grooms and it just so happens to the best day of their lives. We play such a small (yet significant) part in their day, but it allows us to get to know the couple so well. And because of this, we often feel like we’re close friends by the end of the day! Which is one of the reasons we love our job so much.
Mr and Mrs Kostelnik, your day was absolutely perfect. Congratulations again and thank you for allowing us the honor of capturing your special day! We are so happy for you two!!!
