Aaron + Katelyn Wedding | Blank Park Zoo
These two are a pretty awesome duo and I had so much fun photographing their wedding. They couldn’t have asked for a better day in February with the sun out and a high of 72… it was perfect.
One of my favorite moments from the day was when Katelyn’s dad first saw her.
I love first looks! Especially with a groom like Aaron.
Katelyn started making these bracelets when she was a kid and has had one on ever since. She was going to take it off for the wedding but Aaron said he’d wear a matching one instead.
The best man dropped the ring when he was handing it to the minister. After a good laugh the minister also dropped the ring when he was handing it to Aaron! I’m sure the best man won’t live that one down for a long time.
One unique thing about the wedding location was that it was at the Blank Park Zoo! All of the beautiful animals added such a special touch to the day.
If you are an old school gamer you may recognize this pin that Aaron gave to all his groomsmen.
A tree cake. I know what you’re thinking… thats so cool right?
Aaron’s mom is famous for her cheesecake in Pella so she made a bunch for the wedding.
Thank you Aaron & Katelyn it was an honor to be your photographer.
