Ellen & Ryan’s Dunes West Ceremony & Reception

I sincerely cannot say enough about how everything about this wedding was perfect! The night before the wedding I photographed the rehearsal dinner at Cottage on the Creek. It was really great to meet all of Ellen and Ryan’s friends and family. Everyone was very kind and I enjoyed spending the evening with them, especially on such a gorgeous night. The next day the weather was just as amazing! Ellen and Ryan chose to have their ceremony under the other large tree by the water (which was the first time I have seen it set up there, and I loved it). Hanging in the center of the aisle, from the tree was a beautiful chandelier. The sun shining through the moss during the ceremony made the setting even more fantastic. Ryan’s family is the name sake for the Wynkoop Beer Company, so there was plenty on hand, as well as the story for everyone to read. The only place suited for their night shot had to be back at the ceremony site, and I think it was a great ending to their picture perfect day!
