I had the good fortune to meet Elizabeth through work several years ago. Outgoing, HILARIOUS and sharp as a whip she is someone who has always lit up a room and its been a pleasure calling her both a colleague and friend. I was SO excited when she asked if I’d photography her wedding and have really enjoyed getting to know Greg!
True to form, Elizabeth and Greg put together a beautiful and meaningful wedding incorporating a number of friends and family. Their day was not “all about them” it was more about celebrating their friends and family, which was really special.
They radiated complete and utter happiness and love throughout the day, which shines through the photos.
Jeff Bender, who is a friend of the couple, was their wedding designer and incorporated into the wedding some EXCEPTIONAL attention to detail. Some examples of his detail include:
- Beautiful vintage button bouquets that would make your jaw drop
- A hand constructed wedding arbor. Yes, you read that right. It was constructed as an homage to Greg’s dad and made from old barn wood on the Burger Family Farm in Marshall County, Kansas
- Intricate old linens on the reception tables that belonged to Elizabeth’s Grandmother
- Oh, did I mention Jeff grew most of the wild flowers on the tables HIMSELF?! He is a wedding designer genius
- The “Burger” signs and décor you see in the reception were all constructed by Jeff, as was the gorgeous vintage back drop that was used for a wedding photo booth background
Playing off their last name, custom burger cupcakes were a HIT, especially with the kids. 🙂 Culinaria catered a delicious (healthy and local I might add!) dinner, and they were even kind enough to offer a “Kids Buffet” (also a hit) prior to the adults eating.
Needless to say, all the attention to detail paid off and their wedding and wedding reception at the Cider Gallery was gorgeous. All the flower girls had an absolute ball twirling in their tulle dresses to “Let it Go!” I also happened to notice one of the flower girls just as she discovered a rip in her tulle dress. Truly a look of shock and distress that quickly went away as the next song to twirl to started. 🙂
Congratulations, Elizabeth and Greg! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your big day!
