Kylie contacted me this winter about photographing their wedding, the U.S. wedding. You see, Gerald is from Austria and Kylie is from the U.S. but they live in Austria. They were married in Austria about a year ago but wanted to celebrate with family state-side, too. This day was awesome! These two are obviously in love and it was an honor to photograph their exchange of vows.
Their story is really cool too. Kylie interned in Austria where she met Gerald, they fell in love. But it wasn't always so easy. There times they were separated due to potential deportation and challenges with staying in the country, but through thick and thin and long distance, they managed to stay together. I'd say it was worth it, too! They've traveled together and have already had so many cool life experiences. I wish them all the best as they continue their journey.
Austrian traditions mixed with U.S. traditions, family, good food, cake, LOTS of toasting, and a beautiful summer day in Holland, MI. It was a culmination of two cultures sharing their love and this happy event with the people they care about. That's one of my favorite things about shooting weddings.
Here's a peek at their day... Enjoy! If you or someone you know is getting married, I'd love to chat about photographing your special day. Contact me here.
