jeff + kersten

Last May, the week after my wedding, I was lucky to attend another wedding. This time it was as a photographer for Jeff and Kersten's wedding. [I'll admit it was great to be behind the camera again and not in front of it!]

Their wedding was held at The Barn at Harvest Moon Pond in Poynette, WI. It was a fantastic venue - the barn has been renovated very beautifully and the grounds around the barn are just as spectacular. The decorations the couple put together fit so perfectly and looked great in the space.

The weather was perfect - although maybe a tad hot during the outdoor service, but I think once the service started, no one was even concentrating on the heat, but rather on the couple confessing their love for one another. 

I can safely say, the highlight of the ceremony was that Kersten wrote her vows and that Jeff SANG his as a surprise for his bride. It should also be mentioned that he not only sang, but played guitar. 

I'm trying to refrain from saying 'it was so sweet' or it was so awesome' up above, since I think I've already used my quota of fantastic, beautiful, perfect [etc.] adjectives in this post...but let's be honest, it was such a GREAT wedding. 

I feel lucky to be part of this day and to capture this wonderful couple and all their family and friends who came to celebrate. Thanks Jeff and Kersten! 

[Also, a HUGE thanks to my friend / cousin Sam, who was my second shooter.]
