Mackenzie and Dustin were married in Hutchinson on June 23rd, 2012. They celebrated with an incredibly AWESOME group of friends! This active and "sporty" couple had an outrageous number of people in their wedding party - 16... 18, if you count the bride and groom. With such a large group, I was a little nervous about how to incorporate all of their personalities. But as we got rolling, I was thrilled to see they were all so funny and energetic. Needless to say, it was super easy to photograph their playful personalities.
For this couples "first glance", I had Kenzie carefully hiding behind a corner of their church and Dustin walked towards her from the other side. As they heard each other, they reached out their hands and held them for a sweet moment before pulling each other in. The emotions were overwhelming and Dustin broke down. (yes, of course I did too!) About 50% of my grooms tear up, but this gentleman evoked a different feeling for me. He really felt strongly about his bride and, my gosh, I will never forget them or that sweet moment.
The couple are avid softball players. (I think they even coach) Anyway, little did they know their wedding party had bats in hand ready for them to make their grand entrance into the reception. It was quite entertaining, and a first for me. #lovedit
