From the moment we met Shelby and Sam for their romantic rowboat engagement session, we fell completely in love with them! They were so sweet and were so excited for their wedding at Bearpath Golf & Country Club. The big day finally arrived and we met up with the girls in the Fireside Room for hair and makeup. The girls were so much fun and we loved working with April and Allie on hair and Abbi on makeup. Before we knew it, it was time for Shelby to put on her stunning dress from A & Be by Watters. The girls, dressed in their gowns from The Wedding Shoppe, and Shelby’s brother and dad with suits from Milbern got to be the first to see Shelby in her dress! The tears were already flowing and Shelby hadn’t even seen her groom yet!
We joined Sam and the men in the Nicklaus Board Room just before heading outside for Sam’s first look with Shelby. We can’t wait to see what Gerick and Jenny Engle Olson captured on video – there were so many sweet moments! We couldn’t resist beginning portraits amidst the flowering trees and Shelby’s bouquet by Simply Stated Elegance was the perfect compliment to the spring colors. There is nothing more romantic than flower petals floating around a couple giddy in love!
The ceremony began at Our Savior Lutheran Church and was absolutely beautiful! We stopped for some photos along the docks in Excelsior before returning to Bearpath for the reception. The ballroom looked amazing with the linens by Festivities and cake by Country Cake Cupboard. The wedding party made an epic grand entrance and Shelby and Sam entered through a tunnel of laughter and cheers! Instant Request DJ hosted an awesome dance and the night came to an end with the best sparkler exit ever! Shelby and Sam, we hope your time at Excellence El Carmen in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic was a blast and that you enjoy every second of re-living your gorgeous wedding day through your photos!
