Jeff + Lydia { Finnish American Heritage Center }

Jeff and Lydia’s wedding was on one of the hottest
days this summer but the heat didn’t put a damper on their day at all.  They were
one of the sweetest couples I have had the privilege of photographing.  It was a wonderful
wedding day with the ceremony taking place at Evangel Baptist in Houghton.

Lydia’s gown was absolutely gorgeous!

________P I NSite ImageI love that they went with amethyst in the engagement ring.   Lydia’s favorite color is
purple so it is very fitting 🙂________P I NSite ImageAnd you all know how much I love etchings inside the rings 🙂   Jeff and Lydia
chose their favorite bible verses as their etchings. ________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageHow many engineers does it take to tie a tie…??? lol  😉________P I NSite ImageI guess you could say the same thing about the dress 😉  ________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageThere were beautiful purple iris’ outside of the church that went
along with Lydia’s purple theme perfectly.________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageLydia was such a beautiful happy bride!________P I NSite Image
Lydia was surrounded and supported by a
wonderful group of girls.  And on a side note – the mother of the bride
did most of the girls hair! ________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageThis wedding was full of firsts for me.   Loved that Jeff and Lydia
took some time to spend in prayer together
before their ceremony.  But of course… they wanted to keep first looks
to the alter so they were blindfolded!________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageEric, Jordan, David and Tyler were there to support Jeff on his big day.
(See, I got the names down…eventually!)________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageAfter the ceremony we headed to Covered Road for portraits.  This is a
favorite spot of Jeff and Lydia’s. ________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageThe bugs were crazy bad but this group was
troupers and had fun despite them.________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageHappy to be married!!??   😉________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite ImageThe reception was at the Finnish American Heritage Center.  It’s really a neat place to hold
a reception.   It’s been redone recently and looks great!________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image________P I NSite Image
