Dielman-Hostetler Wedding

One of my dearest friends got married this weekend, and I was invited to be in the bridal party. As a result, I didn’t photograph the wedding, even though I would have loved to, but I loaned out my camera to basically anyone who was willing to use it. Here are a few of my favourite captures from the day!

We probably had the most relaxed bridal party morning ever. We kinda just sat around in pajamas and ate pizza. I had my hair and make-up done when I got there, but the bride’s aunt and cousins worked on everyone else’s hair and make-up. Then we got dressed and arrived at the Church basically on time. We did a few photos in the backyard, and there were tons of crickets and they kept jumping up our dresses! Apparently the groomsmen had a blast doing their photos and the dock they did their photos on separated from the land while they were out there, so we almost lost the groom. But it all worked out in the end… and the ceremony was truly beautiful. Jennah looked so, so lovely walking down the aisle and the flower girl was perfect! She loved everyone looking at her, even though she woke up literally a minute before it was time to start.

And finally…. photographs from the dance. I’ve only met a few people in my life who loved to dance as much as these people. They danced and danced all night, even as they cleaned up after the wedding. And… it was contagious. Plus it wasn’t just shuffling from foot to foot, it was arms waving, full body dancing!

And…. my favourite photograph from the day….

And finally, the dreamy lanterns we sent into the night sky.

I was so grateful to be a part of this truly magical day, and I wish Jennah and Cam all the happiness in the world. I love you guys.
