Feathers & Bunnies & Lace - The Metzler Wedding

I've known Dustin and Kelsey for many years and sharing this day with them and their family and friends was a special treat. Their wedding was also my first of the summer season and it was an incredible kickstart indeed. It's always an amazing glimpse of heaven to be at a wedding where two people so dearly love one another and most certainly love the Lord who brought them together. This was one of those weddings. 

I must give a giant thanks to my second shooter, Shannon of Shannon Odell Photography whose photos are sprinkled throughout this blog post and whose work can be seen more here. She is a calming presence, a beautiful capturer of emotion and event details and a sweet friend who is also engaged and to be married in a few short weeks. It was a girly thrill to get to talk weddings and fiancés with her throughout the day. Without further ado, here are some of the highlights from the day!
