Bertha & JR | Ever Changing, Everlasting | Par 4 Resort, Waupaca, WI
It's the end of September. The last of the warm weather has come and gone and the leaves are changing from lush green to vibrant bursts of yellows, reds and orange. We were so excited to finally meet up with Bertha & JR again. Their wedding was originally set for May but with a worldwide pandemic going on it had to be moved. We kept in good communication and were so thankful that we could still be a part of their special day!
Photography is more than just showing up and snapping shots for us. It’s always been about capturing love and memories that truly matter. In order to do that, we love getting to know all our couples personally. If you met Bertha and JR in person, you’ll find that while they may appear quiet at first, they are quite cute and silly together. They are truly one of the sweetest and most loving couple we’ve met. Even amidst a pending rain storm, they had smiles on all day long. Of course it’s not hard to smile when you’re marrying the love of your life!
With any outdoor ceremony, everyone is always at nature's mercy. Although the forecast called for rain all day, with a little faith you can always hope for the best and it worked out perfectly. When Chee La and I arrived, it was raining already but as we led JR beneath the trees for their first look, the rain became intermittent. It stopped just in time for us to capture the sweet moment of the groom gazing upon his beautiful bride for the first time that day. The bridal party was in high spirits and the little rain did not damper their spirits either. They laughed and joked and cheered all while we photographed them. We believe it was their laughter and attitude that caused the sun to peek out for all these amazing photos. And just like that, the rain passed and held off the entire night. It was a small and intimate ceremony and we enjoyed listening to the story of how Bertha and JR fell in love. Afterward was fun and games with dinner and a sparkler exit. We love sparkler exits! Who doesn't?! We wish them the best as they continue on their journey together in life and in love.
