When Ultra Hip Meets Family Tradition

We are now in the heat of the summer I am so relieved to be plunged back into what I KNOW: photographing weddings. It is akin to slipping into your favorite pair of sweat pants after a day of donning a perfectly-fitted vintage sequined dress. Ahhh. After almost a decade it is thrilling to re-discover that wedding photography it is still my great love. And I'm discovering that I don't have quite the level of anxiety or nautea before every single event! It's very exciting! I think I'm finally comfortable knowing that I am great at what I do.
Jamie & Kyle's wedding was in no exaggeration a delight. They are the most gracious, sweet and fun-loving couple. She has the most gorgeous tatoo I've ever seen in my life and he has the coolest sideburns! I adore them both completely.

Here is what really struck me about this event in particular: although Jamie and Kyle are both extremely modern and ultra hip (he works in the music industry and she runs her own hair salon in Minneapolis) they incorporated so many family traditions into their wedding without stripping their own personality from the event. They held their ceremony & reception on the family estate that has been in Kyle's family for several generations.

We made sure to take this photograph of the couple sitting in the "King's Chair" which is a formation in these rocks that looks just like a thrown. Children and wedding couples have been photographed in this spot for generations.

Jamie wore the wedding dress not only her mother was married in, but her grandmother as well! And they added a lace bustle from Kyle's mother's wedding dress. It was stunning. But also so very meaningful to all of those women.
Kyle's great uncle has owned a limo service in Evergreen for almost 50 years and provided this vintage Rolls-Royce for the wedding. Can you see how adorable he is in the background of this photo?? With his crisp straw hat and perfect poise?Jamie & her brothers do a "totem pole" shot at every family event. Kyle and his brother have started their own wedding tradition: the beer bong. And they even persuaded their father to partake! And I had to include this one because it makes me giggle! They were having a bit of a struggle "posing" their hands for the ring shot and this was one of the "outtakes"!
