Jill + Joel | Manhattan United Methodist Church and KSU Alumni Center wedding

And here we are, folks – the wedding season is already halfway over. Jill and Joel’s wedding followed the same theme as many of this summer’s weddings, and certainly all of July’s – HOT – with actual temperatures in Manhattan registering right around 102 degrees. This wedding was a fun one despite the extreme heat – we had a fun wedding party that, after the ceremony, raced around Manhattan on the party bus getting fun shots at about every landmark in town. We had two fathers who gave SUPER awesome toasts – Joel’s dad had me laughing with his creative “presentation” (and it was just that – he PREPARED!). And we had Willie the Wildcat. What else would you expect at a wedding reception held in the Kansas State University Alumni Center? Below are the photos, from my last “Wedding Wednesday” blog post for a few weeks. Yours truly is departing Friday on a 9 day vacation (did I mention the studio will be closed? 😉 ) – my blogging is updated until I return and start shooting again, but please DO look for, in the place of the usual WW highlight blogs, two informational wedding posts, the first of which will be an article on simple ways that you, as bride and groom, can make your wedding pictures even MORE fabulous.

Well, I’m signing off for a while (a quick note that while on vacation I will only be checking email and voicemail every several days – I’m camping so it’s a bit difficult to stay connected, but that’s what vacation is for, right) – but I leave you with Jill, Joel, Willie the Wildcat, a crazy wedding party, some loving parents, a lot of HOT PINK details…and a super fabulous wedding day.

xoxo

..we headed from the hotel directly to K-State Gardens, where Jill and Joel did their first look. LOVED the outside venue for this – it allowed me to use a really long lens, and really step back into the background.

proof that I don’t just take pretty, flowery photos of wedding parties. This group got DOWN after the ceremony…and we started with a street-blocking shot in Aggieville.

…then a crazy ride on the (insanely hot) party bus to the stadium, and an usher-requested ninja-jump around Jill and Joel. 🙂
