Way back in 2016 I received an email from Carolyn inquiring about wedding photography but unfortunately I was already booked. Although I knew very little about them and their wedding at this point, I remember I felt really bummed that I was booked, more bummed than usual. I felt like I was missing out on something great. To my delighted surprise, a few weeks later I received another e-mail that their wedding date had moved a week AND it was now going to be at Gilfillan Estate in Redwood Falls…a venue I’ve had the pleasure of photographing at once before and LOVE. I couldn’t believe it!
Well my initial instinct was spot on because Andy & Carolyn are such a special couple and I can’t imagine not meeting them and shooting their wedding! Andy & Carolyn are as sweet and kind as they come. Not only to those around them but the way they interact with each other is just beautiful. They are such a joy to photograph…I mean have you seen Carolyn’s smile?!
Every wedding detail was perfect. The green and red florals looked absolutely beautiful against the bridesmaids’ dresses and those groomsmen were looking so good in their navy blue suits!
They were married on a rainy day in September at Carolyn’s home church with the reception taking place at Gilfillan Estate. Gilfillan is so charming and you’ll see why I enjoy photographing there…my particular favorite is the huge row of trees out front!
I’m just speechless about this wedding. I simply enjoyed working with Andy, Carolyn AND their family and friends so so much. It was the kind of wedding that really makes me love my job and the great people it allows me to meet. SO many congratulations to Mr & Mrs Kryzer!
I about lost my marbles when this happened! BEST FIRST DANCE EVER!
