Last year Drysen and I met with Trevor and Lisa to start planning the details of their wedding. Lisa & Trevor are a fun, laid back couple. Honestly, these two are some of the most understanding and nicest people we’ve ever met. As we got to know each other, we set a date for the four of us to meet up at a state park near Brookings for an engagement session. Even though the bugs were terrible (I mean, super bad) these two were just fun to be around. We both loved getting to know Lisa & Trevor during their shoot. This is one of my favorite pictures from their session last year!
But my favorite pictures of Lisa and Trevor came from their wedding day. Mr. & Mrs. Radtke tied the knot on September 24th 2016 in Brookings SD. I was thrilled because the leaves had just started to change colors, which is always a photographer’s dream come true. Lisa & Trevor’s day was beautiful, laid back, and basically the best way to celebrate a marriage with friends and family.
Early that morning, the girls met up to prepare for the wedding. Since everyone was getting dressed at the church, things just fell into place. It was a calm, stress-free day for everyone to hang out and prepare for the ceremony. I had a few minutes of free time so I snapped a few photos of the wedding day details. Lisa’s dress was super pretty, and very elegant!
Trevor & Lisa’s first look took place outside of the church. The breeze was blowing, which made Lisa’s Cathedral Veil look super cool as it billowed in the wind. I just love seeing the look in Lisa & Trevor’s eyes.
After the first look, we went into the church to take a few more group pictures. Lisa and Trevor’s wedding party looked dashing. The bridesmaids wore blue dresses and the groomsmen’s ties matched. Their shade of blue really made everyone and everything pop! Plus, I’m a huge fan of the way Lisa’s flowers matched up to her dress!
After the ceremony, everyone headed to the Swiftel Center in Brookings. As usual, the Swiftel Center provided the perfect atmosphere for a wedding reception. The walls were lined with white pipe & drape and accented with blue up-lighting. Lisa put a lot of attention into the details of the reception and especially the decorations. The entire venue just came together and looked fantastic!
Trevor & Lisa made their grand entrance as Mr. & Mrs. Radtke. The newlyweds gave a few words to thank their wedding guests, followed by dinner, cake, and dancing. To make their first dance even more magical, Drysen provided a cloud dance to dance their first dance as husband and wife.
The rest of the night was full of laughter, dancing, and good times. Drysen even had a little extra ice left over and gave the kids a second cloud dance to enjoy. I think they absolutely loved it!
Thank you Trevor and Lisa for including us in your special day! We had a great time and are so excited for you both 🙂
