Wedding at Portage United Methodist Church

I absolutely love weddings. Everything about the day makes me happy – smelling the flowers, seeing a special venue adorned with special decorations, smelling the food for the celebration, hearing the nervous laugh from the bride, and feeling that electricity in the air that only comes once in a lifetime, when two people promise to be each other’s foundation for the rest of their lives. This is one of the many reasons I became a wedding photographer.


This beautiful February day was the day Emily and Tanner would start the next chapter of their lives together. Surrounded by family and friends, they gathered at the Portage United Methodist Church to promise their lives to each other.

Looking back, the thing I remember most about that day was that no one was nervous at all. The bride, the groom, the parents and friends – everyone was calm and happy and relaxed. The mood of the day was one of quiet celebration. After all, there was nothing to be nervous about. Just love, that’s all they need.
