Here we go folks, behold, the most adorable couple you have ever seen. Ryan, right, and Kirk, left, are two of the happiest most enjoyable people to be around I have ever known. True to form their wedding was insanely colorful, emotional, beautiful in more ways than I can count, and altogether amazing. I don’t know if I’ve ever cried so much in my life, except at my own sister’s wedding! But more on that later, let’s start out with the boys as they got ready, surrounded by their bridal party, consisting of their family members and best friends in the world.
As always, there was a bit of bow tie drama, but these guys know what they are doing.
The dogs weren’t impressed… where are the treats y’all?
I mean, those colors. Have you SEEN a better looking couple?!
We took a little tour of the grounds at the Essex Conference Center and Retreat, it was SUCH a gorgeous day, and this place is an amazing hidden gem, I LOVED shooting there.
The fabulous Vince Schaefer was my second shooter for the day, he grabbed this shot, so pretty!
Vince also set the boys up over here by the firepit, killing me.
Just can’t get over that light!
Then it was time for the best group photos ever!
Hurry up, finish your vows Ryan!
Everyone needed a little liquid courage before the ceremony.
Wait for it…
And away we go! To ABBA no less…
Commence the best wedding ceremony ever, first Kirk sang Ryan a song.
Then there were dramatic readings of their first emails to each other.
Then a sweet surprise poem.
Then the most beautiful vows ever.
And LOTS more crying.
Ryan’s brother jumping, Vince shooting, I can’t even…
The boys mingled for a while…
…then we snuck away for a few more portraits at golden hour. Can’t you just FEEL the happy?
I could barely hold it together during their toasts.
Then it was short shorts time. These guys know how to party.
