Dustina and Cord's wedding day was on Cinco de Mayo, and they celebrated with quite the party! It was a fun day hanging out with them and their friends and family. Their wedding was at the Nelson Family farm in Olsburg, Kansas which is a beautiful place to get married; I've had the opportunity to shoot a wedding there before and I was excited to get to go back!
The day started off in Manhattan at Dustina's apartment where her and her bridesmaids, flower girl and more were going to be getting their hair and make-up done. I arrived just as things were getting underway. The morning was spent getting all dolled up, while Moana played on the TV in the background--a great movie to watch before walking down the aisle! :)
At Dustina and Cord's first look, Cord's face lite up with a huge smile on his face when he turned around and saw his bride to be. Dustina's smile at Cord was just as big as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
After their first look we ventured further outside and tried to find some shade as it was a tad warm. They handled the heat like champs even though there was a few times we had to wipe off sweat. After taking a few pictures we headed back inside the barn to cool off a bit before the ceremony.
Their ceremony was outdoors just a few hundred feet from the barn where the reception was going to be held. It was a beautiful ceremony as they were surrounded by loved ones.
After the wedding, Dustina and Cord greeted their guests as they made their way up to the barn for the reception to start. After greeting their guests, Dustina and Cord sneak away with me for a little big longer to get a few more pictures with their wedding party before the reception started.
Their reception was a fun affair! Since it was Cinco de Mayo, they had margaritas served and they even had lawn games outside for guests to play as it ended up being a perfect May evening. Around sunset, I stole Dustina and Cord away again for a little bit so we could get a few sunset pictures before they would be dancing the night away with their friends and family!
Dustina and Cord--Thank You for trusting me to capture your wedding day and engagement pictures! I had a blast taking both of them! Thank you for your positive attitudes and fun energy! You guys are such fun people to be around and you have lots of people that care for you guys very much! I wish you guys the best of luck as you guys embark on this new chapter as husband and wife! :)
