Natalie & Brandon got married on the most beautiful and peaceful Sunday morning in South Dakota last week! Their 11 AM ceremony was short and sweet, and afterwards guests feasted on cheeseburgers and cupcakes. With happy and full bellies, everyone sat out on the lawn playing games and chatting. Perfect day? I think so.

Both the bride and groom changed clothes halfway through the day (fabulous, much?)  Natalie started the day wearing her grandmother’s dress which didn’t need one centimeter of tailoring to fit her like a glove! After lunch, comfort was key so Brandon changed from his suit to a checked shirt and Natalie chose a flowy and simple white dress with some colorful wedges!

Photographing Natalie & Brandon’s love is so fun because they aren’t shy about it! I love nothing more than capturing two people who are crazy about each other, so this day was such a treat for me! Aside from that, being able to watch my dear friend walk down the aisle to the man of her dreams is a feeling that can’t be described. So happy for you, Natalie! (And Brandon, I’m so thankful for how you cherish her!)

Mr & Mrs Karels, I wish you two nothing but the utmost happiness in your new life together!
