When Rylee and Michael started planning their wedding, I started getting messages from my other couples.
“Are you photographing Rylee’s wedding?”
“Please tell me Rylee booked you!”
…and so on.
When Joe Hearn from Joe Hearn Events contacted me about my availability, I immediately knew this was the couple everyone had been talking about. Rylee and Michael are awesome. Michael is quiet, but with a quick wit and a willingness to do anything for his bride….even take a plunge in frigid waters for a picture. Rylee is full of energy and sass….between the raised eyebrow and the contagious laugh, I knew this was going to be an amazing wedding.
Their wedding was held at the gorgeous Delamater House and couldn’t have been a more perfect day. The girls sipped mimosas and laughed as they got ready, the guys hung out and enjoyed a few beers before they headed to the venue. The sun was in perfect position as time came for the ceremony to start and all the joyous emotion spread from Michael and Rylee’s faces to all their guests.
Then the party started. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this, but teachers…in my experience…can throw down like no one else I know. Rylee, Michael and their friends and family definitely proved that. The night was filled with dancing, laughter, lots of hugs and a few cocktails that produced timeless expressions. It was a great night and so perfectly ended with a bubble exit surrounded by friends and family!
I am so excited to share these images with everyone! Rylee and Michael, here’s to years of happiness and love!
