Evelyn and Daniel’s Traditional Blue, Blush, and Ivory Wedding

One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is meeting different couples, learning their stories, and getting to be a small part of the next stage in their life’s journey.

Evelyn and Daniel’s July wedding was beautiful, traditional, and classic. This is slightly unlike the story of how the couple met, which was funny and a little awkward, but just as adorable! Evelyn and Daniel first met while working at St. Alexius Hospital, although Daniel says that he does not remember the initial meeting. Evelyn certainly does though, and the way she tells the story is cute and hilarious!

Here is the first chapter of their forever story, in Evelyn’s own words:

“There is a Starbucks at the hospital. He was in line, and I was right behind him. I noticed he had a book in his hand and I was peering sideways at it trying to see what book it was. He noticed I was peering and looked at me funny; as if saying, ‘Can I help you?’ Immediately, I felt my face turn red and said something to the likes of, “Oh sorry. I was just trying to see what book you have in your hand.” He was then very friendly and was like, “Oh no worries. Here, it’s a Star Wars book.” At that time, I had no interest in Star Wars, but took the book to look at it since he handed it to me. When I handed it back to him, I said, ‘Cool. I know how to read too.’ I immediately thought, “Ev, you are such a doofus.” He looked at me like I was a weirdo and said, ‘Uhh cool.’ I was beyond mortified.”

This is just the cutest meeting ever! Obviously, it did not stop the inevitable – a beautiful summer wedding joining these two sweethearts in holy matrimony!

The two wed in a stunning, romantic, and traditional July wedding, but the ceremony also had a personalized flair. Evelyn’s bridesmaid dresses all wore dresses of different styles, which complemented the ladies and the wedding style. The dresses were also varying shades of gold, blush, and dusty blue that beautifully blended with the colors in Evelyn’s bouquet. One of the most special moments of the entire day was Evelyn’s mother walking her down the aisle, and her beautiful daughters watching their mom marry the man of her dreams.

It was truly a wonderful day, and the two are looking forward to many years of fun, nerdy, and intellectual times together!
