The wedding between Terryl and Mike was fun, romantic and relaxed. We met up with the girls in the Dr. Phillips house where they had one of the large beautiful rooms on the 2nd floor to get ready in. While the girls where getting the finishing touches on hair and make up by Holly and Nanette we found a cool spot to hang the dress. The rooms in the Dr. Phillips house are all so beautiful and unique you could pretty much hang it anywhere.
We then headed upstairs to make sure the guys were getting ready. After a few pre-game photos, we went downstairs for portraits of the guys, and as you can see we didn't take it too serious. :) Once Terryl was ready to put on her dress we put Mike and his guys away and headed to her room. I love the candid photos that can be captured during this moment. Once she was in her dress from Lilly's Bridal we set up a first look with her Dad, just outside of their getting ready room. From here we needed to get Terryl put away before guests arrived so we headed over to the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne and grabbed some awesome bridal portraits along the way.
The ceremony was held in the courtyard. This space offers such an intimate feel while still providing room for many guests. The ceremony was officiated by Reverend Bill Barnes who did a great job in celebrating and uniting the love these two share. After the couple said "I do" we went through the family portraits they requested and then used the rest of the cocktail hour for wedding party photos and portraits of just the new couple.
The reception started with the new couple being introduced, then went into their first dance followed by toasts, cake cutting, dances with the parents and a bouquet toss. As the night came to a close, all of the newlyweds friends and family lined up to send them off with cheers and applause. It was at this point that the fire alarm somehow went off, nothing was wrong but since we had a fire truck there, we decided to use it for a few photos :)
Congratulations Terryl and Mike we wish you nothing but happiness and thank you again for choosing Patrick Buckley Images!
