It’s been a very odd year. With all of the precautions taken for the Coronavirus, a majority of my couples have had to change everything about their dream wedding day. Kari and Phil are one of those couples. But instead of postponing everything, they were way too excited to get married, so they did!
Shortly after they got engaged, Kari approached me about being their photographer. We are both members of the Couve Brew Bevy, which is a local group of women beer lovers. I said absolutely and we started planning. I knew I should of headed to my yearly conference in Vegas a week earlier and met them in Vegas, because when we all got back, everything was vastly different.
So after a few months of lockdown, I finally got the clearance to reopen up the photography business and we made a plan! It was June already, and their wedding date was for July 11th, so we headed out at the first date our calendars lined up and hit up Officer’s Row and their favorite tap house, Final Draft for their engagement session.
We got a little bit of luck as the day had been cloudy, but opened up just in time for their session. I mean, look at those clouds!
These two met with their love of craft beer, so I mean, we had to include it somewhere in their engagement session. I will never say “no” to photographing in your favorite spot to grab a drink, as long as the owners are cool with it too.
Kari and Phil didn’t let any of this ruin their wedding day either. When they couldn’t have the big party, they just moved it to their backyard!
With a small amount of their friends and family, it was just perfect.
With these two, there is always smiles. With sweet vows, I may of tried to not tear up a few times.
Afterwards, they popped a few brews and had a great time seeing their close friends and family.
Congrats you two! I am sure that we’ll be seeing each other at the tap rooms and events when it all starts to open up again!
