Rachel at Talia Events shared this wedding with me earlier this year, which happens to be her brother’s wedding. I couldn’t wait to share – the warmth in the photos had me longing for warmer temperatures. And, with Spring here the barn back drop, gondolier, adorable pup, and shear joy between Blayne and Alex make the perfect mixture for a beautiful wedding.
From the Photographers, Val and Jeff:
We’ve fallen in love with Alex and Blayne! They are one of those couples who we had an instant connection with. The first time I chatted on the phone with Blayne, I just knew! And, after we spent an evening photographing their e-session, we knew they were kind of people we could sit, chat, and have drinks with. We love them!
Every aspect of this gorgeous affair was thoughtfully planned. There wasn’t a moment without that “WOW” factor, not a corner without a beautiful detail, nothing was over looked and not a minute went by without pure happiness from everyone!
Some of our favorite highlights: the reception in a true South Dakota Barn, two dresses for the big affair, a gondola ride with a gondolier, their thoughtfully practiced, adorable first dance, the contagious laughter, smiles, and love by all, and the overall gorgeous simplicity of the affair!
