Stepheny + Cameron | Berthoud Wedding Photography | Brookside Gardens Wedding

June 30, 2016

Guess what guys?!…this is my 200th blog post!  What the what?!  It feels like such an accomplishment 🙂  And to think, just a few years ago I was too afraid to even blog, because I had no clue what I was doing.  Well, I am still no pro, but have come a very long way over the past 200 posts.  So, for post #200, I am bringing you Stepheny and Carmeron’s Berthoud wedding photography from Brookside Gardens.  I have known Stepheny since middle school, and my sister has been best friends with Cameron’s sister since then as well.  I was so honored to be asked to capture their laid back, sweet wedding in early October 2015.

These two had a lovely, fall wedding, that was personalized just for them.  I loved Stepheny’s blingy bridal Nikes, her Busch garter (her new last name), their beautiful black and white wedding cake, and their emotional, heartfelt wedding ceremony.  We had less than 10 minutes for their bride and groom photos before the rain came, but we definitely made the best of it.  I think we got some great, loving photos of the newlyweds!  Then, their guests danced the night away at their fun-filled reception.  It was a wonderful day all around, and I am so glad I was a part of it.
