Mr. & Mrs. Mouw - April 23rd 2022

I first met with Dave and Amy for their engagement photos way back in January, it was a chilly, but yet supper sunny day, I had a great time getting to know them and their story. Amy's daughter also came along for some quick family shots as well.

Fast-forward to April 23rd, a beautiful cloudless day. My husband, Max, and I made our way to Shelbyville United Methodist Church to prepare for Dave and Amy's big day. When we arrived Dave was at the entrance greeting all the guests, and I made my way downstairs where Amy was getting ready to get some getting ready photos. Before the ceremony Dave had a gift for Amy's daughter, it was so sweet. There was a note and necklace that he gave her.

The ceremony was so beautiful, it took place right in the church, and it started off by family members lighting the candles. Dave made his way down the aisle, followed by Amy's daughter who was her maid of honor, and the cutest little flower girl and ring bearer, Amy was accompanied down the aisle by her dad. During the ceremony Dave, Amy, and her daughter did a sand unity together, and then they had close friends perform a song. Another friend of Amy's made a small speech and then we were on to the rings. During the vows Dave also read vows to Amy's daughter which were so touching and sweet.

Following the ceremony Dave and Amy made their way outside so they could greet their guest as they were leaving to the reception location. Allowing us to take some family and couples photos at the church. When we arrived to the reception location we finished up with family photos and I got to do some outside couples photos for them too. Dave and Amy made their entrance to the reception where everyone was excitedly waiting for them. We started with speeches and then it was time to eat. For their first dance they actually had a choreographed dance that they had been practicing, it was so amazing to watch.

I absolutely loved working these two and small intimate church wedding was so beautiful to capture.
