Mrs. Ellis was married yesterday evening in a beautiful ceremony at St Elizabeth Catholic Church, so today we get to share some of our favorites from her bridal session a couple of months ago.
You just know the day will prove interesting when the bride shows up with her personalized bag and a baseball bat:
Now, if we could just get her out of her dressing trailer:
All who know Celina know she is probably the friendliest, most sincere and genuine person you’ll ever meet – the 1,000 or so who came to the wedding and reception can attest to that 🙂 Assisted by her parents and Maid of Honor Jessica, Russ filmed her bridal video and I photographed a fun afternoon of wind and diamonds, lace and baseball.
The wind and rain blew and fell most of the afternoon – by the time it was time for Russ and I to cover her bridal session the rain had stopped, but it was still a “both hands on veil” kinda afternoon:
The wind did help in making some gorgeous bridal portraits tho:
Many more beautiful portraits later, Celina broke out the sports equipment for her soon-to-be husband Matt. Matt is a sports freak (according to reliable sources) and Celina wanted to have some fun and give him a surprise:
When is the last time you saw a bride in full bridal regalia hiking a football or throwing a perfect strike to a wide receiver or left-handed batter?
We printed a few larger prints and combined a few into one large collage for her man’s cake table at the reception:
A few more below, her wedding photos will be up soon!
