Jeremy said it was love at first sight. Maybe it was the way she lit up a room when she walked in, or the way her smile radiated joy and life. Either way, he knew he was smitten from the first time he met her, and immediately started scheming ways to make Bronte his girl.
Bronte was drawn to his shy and caring personality, He was the funniest man she had ever met, and was irresistibly drawn toward his sweet Georgian charm. When he started breaking through the walls and barriers she had put up to protect her heart, she knew she was falling in love... and couldn't imagine giving her heart to anyone else.
Bronte and Jeremy proclaimed their love in front of family and friends this last Saturday, in my home town of Delano, Minnesota! It was such a privilege to witness their commitment and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful August day! :)
Jeremy gave Bronte THE most unique ring I'd ever seen - and it totally fit with her country girl style. :)
Bronte was a bundle of nerves before the ceremony, but her sweet girlfriends were there to make everything right.
Jeremy has such an intense gaze - love this!!
We started with photos of Bronte and her girls, and I thought her bridesmaids looked SO lovely in their short dresses and cowboy boots!
Bronte, you were such a beautiful bride!!
Jeremy and the guys looked relaxed and comfortable on this hot day....
And were so supportive to Jeremy! :)
Such a sweet laugh!
Jeremy and Bronte didn't see each other before the ceremony, but had specific vows they wanted to share with each other... so we arranged a private meeting. They were so excited for the ceremony!
Jeremy was super emotional when he first saw his bride!
It was so fun to celebrate with everyone after the ceremony!!
We took some time to steal away the happy couple for a few minutes before the reception began...
They were so so thrilled to finally be married. :)
LOVE this silhouette!
Bronte, you are something fierce!!
The reception took place in a tent following the ceremony, and Bronte and her family had decorated everything to southern charm perfection.
The first dances were extremely emotional... and left everyone in tears.
But once the dancing started...
They didn't want it to end!!
Jeremy and Bronte, what a gorgeous wedding you had! Thank you so much for allowing me to photographing such a special day for you two, and I hope you have a lovely week settling into your new home. Much love to you both! :)
