It’s not every day I get to photograph a wedding at a gun range, with Miller Lite incorporated in wedding vows, a giant fake cow, and a bride and groom donning jeans and flip flops. But let me tell you, it was certainly a wedding I had a lot of fun photographing. This couple, Kristy and Ryan, were clearly planning a laid-back wedding that ensured that all of their guests had a great time . I heard many guests throughout the day say that this was one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to. From beginning to end, Kristy and Ryan kept everyone laughing, drinking, and having an all around blast at their wedding.
We started the day with family and party shots, which led to some fun couple shots on one of the shooting ranges, and then continued onto their ceremony. These two were a blast to photograph. I can honestly say I’ve never incorporated Miller Lite into wedding photos. But we did! Ryan even had some on hand for Kristy in the ceremony, saying ‘he’d always have a Miller Lite on hand for her.’ At which point, Miller Lite’s were passed onto the couple for their vows. The groom’s father married this wonderful couple and had the whole crowd in stitches with his humor and jokes throughout the ceremony.
Following the ceremony, the bride and groom had a receiving line for all their guests, which led into the reception. After the family and party entered, the couple began their first dance as husband and wife. Parent dances followed, which ended in a toast by the best man. We then captured some final friends photos, and sadly I had to take my exit. But here’s to many more years of happiness and Miller Lite’s for these two! Cheers to the happy couple and without further ado, Kristy and Ryan’s Wedding!
