Alex & Max

A few weeks ago, we had a mad rush to get everything done at our ceremony site for our first wedding ceremony of the year.  Thankfully, Melissa, from Gorman House Photo shared all of her photos with me.  Melissa from Gorman House was fabulous to work with.  She had two second shooters, so Alex and Max had three photographers snapping pictures of them.  This worked out well because they didn’t see each other before the ceremony, so Melissa and her gang were able to knock out many photos in a short amount of time following the ceremony.

The day started in our bridal suite where the ladies got ready for the big day!



Whenever my couples decide not to see each other before the ceremony, they are always filled with lots of nerves when it’s time for the ceremony to begin.  Alex is a warm and gentle soul.


Max is very artistic.   He and Alex did a great job of capturing one another’s personalities in their personal touches at their ceremony.


We were all excited to watch the ceremony take place.


Having an artistic and talented groom meant there were many homemade pieces to their ceremony like this sign that greeted guests as they sat down.


Having multiple photographers meant they could get several different angles of the ceremony taking place.  I really like this look from across the pond.


When you have an outdoor ceremony, candle ceremonies don’t work very well.  Sand has been the most popular alternative, however, I have seen some cool ideas.  One couple watered a tree that they planted in their back yard.  Alex and Max chose to put some items in a box which they nailed shut during the ceremony.  I didn’t confirm with them, but I think they don’t plan to open the box until they have been married a certain amount of time.  I thought that was a cool idea.

Max is an excellent welder and he created this amazing arbor for them to use at the entrance to the ceremony.  It has their initials on either side and their last name initial on the top.


He also made really tall shepherds hooks to complement the arbor where sunflowers were hung from jars wrapped in burlap.  Max also made all of the centerpieces for the reception.  They were amazing!


We had just gotten new white golf cars which happen to be a nice color for weddings.  It hadn’t crossed our minds until we saw Alex in the cart.


I’m a fan of the ring shot with the golf ball.  It seems appropriate when you’re getting married on the golf course.


They definitely had one of my all time favorite cake toppers.  Lego people!


It fit perfectly with the whimsy of the entire wedding.


They were right up my alley in the party favor department.  I’m a candy-holic.  They gave all of their guests jars filled with candies.

Congratulations again, Alex and Max!


What do you think about their cake topper?  Isn’t that the coolest thing you have ever seen???

Thanks again to Melissa and Gorman House Photo for all of these amazing photos!
