High School Sweethearts Tie the Knot

Going For It

Nancy and Eric were such an incredible couple to work with! Several months before the wedding, we had a meeting with Nancy to go over some of her wedding plans. She was still deciding on a reception venue and wanted our opinion. As soon as we heard that she was considering using the fire station where she regularly volunteers to have a firefighter themed wedding we got very excited and encouraged her to peruse the idea!

Fast forward a few months and we learned that not only had she decided to go with the fire station for her venue, but also planned to use a fire truck to escort her to the ceremony & reception!!

This made for one of the most memorable weddings of the year as well as being a blast for Nancy & Eric!

The Rehearsal Dinner

The night before, we met up with Nancy & Eric at their rehearsal dinner to film all of the incredible toast by their family and friends. Despite being a smaller and more intimate crowd, there was still a lot to be said. Nancy’s Dad finally got the opportunity to have his official “father – son-in-law” talk with Eric (which was hilarious!) while Nancy & Eric’s sisters both gave a little back story on how the two met.

Making it Official

The next morning we arrived at the salon to get some beautiful Hair/Makeup touch up shots. We then traveled to the bridal suite to capture some prep shots and a first look with Nancy’s father!

Before the ceremony we made sure to capture Eric’s reaction to the letter Nancy had written him.

Finally, the time had come for the Ceremony and so we quickly set up in the church just in time for the start. This particular ceremony was very special as Nancy & Eric had decided to have  three pastors involved in the ceremony!! Pastor Mike had the entire audience laughing as he noted “I guess Eric, it took three preachers to get you married huh?”.

Going Out With a Bang!

The Fire Station proved to be the perfect place for the reception and Nancy & Eric’s entrance for the first dance made for an epic video segment as they walked through columns of fog to be greeted by the cheers of friends and family gathered to celebrate!

To end the night they had an epic Exit followed by a huge fireworks show celebrating the 4th of July! We are honored to have had the opportunity to capture this amazing story and look forward to the amazing adventures to come!
