When I think of traditional churches, I think of arches, pews, bad carpet and even worse lighting. But when you photograph a drummer’s wedding who, like Zach, has strong ties to his contemporary church and performs most weekends on a concert-ready stage, church weddings get much more interesting! My lenses felt right at home with the haze and moving lights.
It rained on and off all day, but the weather ended up beautiful although quite gusty “on the hill” at Faith Promise Church. Luckily, Zach & Kelly were an easy going bride and groom, and we rolled with the wind and worked around the rain throughout the day which ended with a photographer’s dream sunset.
Zach & Kelly’s color scheme of coral and gray was echoed throughout the decor alongside fun details like snare drum card holders and a yummy ice cream sundae bar. The couple chose not to have a wedding party, but included their close knit families as Zach’s father performed the ceremony and Kelly’s twin sister gave a heartfelt reading.
What a joyous day for two young hearts to promise forever to each other!
Congrats K/Z and #cheerstothecarringers !
Metallic wedding heels like these are everything right now.

First look amongst the redbud trees.
Sorry about about that windblown look, Zach!
A matted print is a great alternative to a traditional guest book.
Snare drum card holders. Very creative!
Bring on that dreamy, wedding day sunset!
Uh oh…who gets to keep the bouquet?
I could smell the icing throughout the entire church. Yum!
