I have so much to say about this wedding – I swooned over their photos! They were everything one would want in a wedding : Love, Friends, Family, Fun, Beer, Wagon Ride, Boat Ride, Wine Bar, AWESOME food, and so so so much more! Brandon and Alyssa made sure this wedding was natural, stress free, and oh so them. Just beautiful – seriously!
Brandon and Alyssa are two people that were made for each other, totally utterley perfect matches for one another. Both are huge hunters. So much so they have been just returned from a hunting adventure in Africa, they shot Kuda, Wild Boar, and Water Buffalo – and I bet more. It was especially awesome because all the meet goes to a local trip, and they get to bring back the horns, hides and so on. Isn’t that great! I cannot wait to see pictures, hear stories and see the awesome stuff they brought home.
Not to mention they are two wonderfully kind people – I have worked with Brandon for 4 years now, and I can say that he can be a smart ass at times but knows how to make people smile. And Alyssa is one of the kindest people I know – always a smile on her face – and knows how to make people feel special.
I thought it was perfect since they are both hunters, and fishers, to photograph her dress in the trophie and gun room! And I have to say this is my favorite dress shot!
Favorite ring shot yet!
The girls got ready at the McMansion (Brandon and Alyssa’s home) I love their home, I have even asked if I could move in (yup)! Alyssa helped put little Rory’s dress one, that was a close resemblance to her own. Then the girls helped Alyssa get into her beautifully simple dress.
I love the moments before the wedding with Father’s and their Daughters!
The guys got ready at the Brooks Farm – in the shop. This shop is most likely my Dad’s dream shop – I know it’s mine!
And something I never thought I would see a groomsman do — his cufflink broke so he welded it back together!

I had fun with the wedding party since there was so much time before the ceremony!
The guys posing like they think the girls would.
The girls posing how they thing the guys would .. HA!
The ceremony was in a field with hay bails for the guests. Burlap drapery, blankets, wine bar, infused water, cheese and wine — LOVE! Right as Alyssa got to the top of the isle a plane flew overhead and dropped wild flowers!
The wedding party took a hay ride to the Clear Water Harbor Bar.
They then took a boat to the Indian Crossing Casino.
Congrats you two, and wish you many many years of love together!
