Maty & Josh’s beautiful wedding day took place in Lakeville at Brackett’s Crossing Country Club! This golf course is absolutely gorgeous with an incredible outdoor ceremony space! When I arrived, the ladies were in the bridal suite getting their hair and makeup done by Kay Schlorf. The guys were downstairs taking a few swings on the country club’s golf simulator before they started getting in their suits. I had a great time documenting their flat lays! Christine’s Floral Touch gave me some beautiful flower cuttings to use in these and it made them that much more stunning! Then Josh’s dad helped him into his custom suit from Bill’s Toggery and this was a special father son moment! You can see the pride on dad’s face as he helped Josh! Also, they had super cool pocket square boutonnieres! And check out the inside of Josh’s suit – an amazing American flag pattern! And a nod to Josh’s service to our country! Thank you Josh! Then Maty’s mom helped her into her stunning dress from Beloved Bridal! Her dress was elegant and timeless!
The couple shared their first look out back along the pathway to the ceremony space! Josh was completely smitten! We then took couple’s photos around the outdoor space! Such great locations here! Then my favorite moment of the day happened. I took individual portraits of Josh and then individual portraits of Maty. While I was taking the portraits of Maty I looked over at Josh as he watched his bride and he was crying! <3 It does not get better than this! We added the wedding party in and had a blast with this group!
The ceremony took place outside at Brackett’s and was so gorgeous! Love all the feels as Maty walked down the aisle! To start the ceremony, Josh’s dad welcomed everyone and gave a heartfelt “thank you for coming and celebrating the best day with us!” The couple exchanged lovely rings from Shane Co. and were pronounced husband & wife! They were so excited as the walked down the aisle!
We took family photos as guests enjoyed a cocktail hour and time to mingle before dinner. After a call to seating, everyone enjoyed the first meal with Maty & Josh as a married couple! The food was delicious! Followed by dessert from Nothing Bundt Cakes! As guests enjoyed the food, toasts and well wishes were given! Then the couple shared their first dance, followed by the father & daughter dance, and the mother & son dance! This crew went crazy on the dance floor and had so much fun as the night went on as Midwest Sound DJ Entertainment spun the tunes! Before I left, a friend of the couple that did classic car restoration with his dad let me know that they were arranging for an old Dodge Charger to arrive for the couple to take photos with! Check out this sleek black vintage car! So cool and such a fun ending to the night!
