Erin and Blaine’s Sunny Yellow Midwest Wedding

Captured & submitted by Rachael Marie Photography

 

One of my favorite questions to ask my couples before their wedding day is – “When did you know this was your person?” Erin says there was no big moment when it came to Blaine- It all just flowed easily for her. They never stopped talking and they never wanted to be apart. Everything has always felt comfortable and natural between them.

To start their wedding day off Erin and Blaine got ready separately so as not to see one another prior to their ceremony. They opted not to have a first look which built up a lot of excitement and anticipation for their ceremony later in the day! One of the many draws of their wedding taking place at Erin’s Pavilion is that both Erin and Blaine as well as their wedding parties were able to get ready on location. This made things SO easy for them and is something I can’t recommend enough for couples to do when possible at their wedding venue. Before long it was time for their ceremony, but first we had time for a quick first look with Erin and her father which was SO sweet.

Erin and Blaine kept their wedding ceremony decorations to a minimum keeping the ceremony itself as the main focus. With some simple florals in their wedding colors as the only décor in the room, it was a ceremony that felt so personal and intimate. A good amount of happy tears were shed throughout the ceremony, you could really feel just how happy everyone was to be there celebrating their love! After the ceremony, we had time for some family portraits before heading outside for wedding party photos.

After taking portraits with their wedding party Erin and Blaine snuck away during cocktail hour to change into their custom Vans. I love personal touches like these for any wedding day and theirs was especially great as it meant they were SO comfortable for the rest of their festivities. Their wedding reception at Erin’s Pavilion was a blast from start to finish, complete with first dances, great food, and speeches from loved ones. Both Erin and Blaine’s dad gave speeches that made us all tear up.

There  was also so much dancing. Erin’s family is from California and wow, they really knew how to dance the night away. We had a little time in the middle to sneak away for some newlywed sunset portraits before returning so Erin and Blaine could dance the night away with all of their guests.
