Cool autumn clouds hung low over the October morning, while tall gold and cream colored grasses swayed in the fields around the church where Lissy and John were married. The gray skies added the perfect hues to capture family photos outside, everyone looked great, and we were able to capture some timeless shots of several generations of family all together.
Excitement rose right after the wedding ceremony as John had arranged a surprise fly over by the National Guard. The exhilaration and emotions were high as everyone cheered when the planes flew by. Then to add to the excitement and laughter the guys changed from their formal tux vests to cameo duck hunting ones, setting the mood for a fun and lively reception.
The reception was hall was lit with warm welcoming candles, fall leaves, duck feathers, and bright round pumpkins. To get the bride and groom to kiss wild duck calls ringed out through out the reception hall, bringing about much laughter and made for some joyous photographs. This wedding was full of the joys of family, laughter, love and fellowship of good friends, all sharing in the celebrating John and Lissy’s special day.
