Trevor + Kristen >> Classic and Stylish Church + Vineyard Wedding (Albert Lea, MN)

It was black. Dramatic.
I had her pose in that dress with some overturned boats in an alleyway off Main Street.
Out of the hundreds of seniors I photographed at my old studio, she did and she has stuck out all these years later for being such a stylish + spunky + sweet package all rolled into one.

This time it was white. Still dramatic but in a more elegant, grown-up fashion. 
I had her and her husband pose, plopped in the center of pretty landscaping, in front of garage doors, and in the unexpected nooks of the old church where they would say "I do." All of the qualities that first stood out when we met several years ago were still there, but this time I got to see them set against a world of friends, family, a lover-of-her-life mister, and some pretty big emotions that come with that combination.

And then there's Trevor. That love-of-her-life complement. As was said towards our groom during a big round of speeches, "This is the sort of man who is always kind to a waitress." He balances out our heroine, returning every look, touch, and kiss with equal amounts of affection. To watch the two of these lovebirds together you can sense the completion, while you softly hum "home is wherever I'm with you" in the background of their magic. 

Now let's get that soundtrack rolling, turn the speakers up, and get ready to scrollllll, scroll, scroll.

Congrats, T+K!
