Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It's also a time to thank those who are currently serving. I would like to do my small part by showing a couple of military weddings I've covered and telling you a little bit about the couple.
Nichole was living in Colorado at the time she called me for a wedding consultation. She told me how she had met Nathan while they both served together in the armed forces. They were already married, but wanted to have a traditional ceremony and reception with friends and family looking on. Griffith, Indiana was her hometown and she had decided on Wicker Park Social Center as the location for her outdoor military wedding.
I met Nathan for the first time when he arrived back from overseas for their August wedding. We chatted for a few minutes just before I took this portrait of him in full decoration.
Tim and Terra are an incredibly sweet young couple from Michigan whose wedding ceremony I photographed in the New Buffalo area. One of my favorite images is this one of her father giving her away in full military regalia during the ceremony at the quaint Michigan chapel. A wonderful moment...
I hope you have a terrific Memorial Day weekend!! Be sure to kick off the summer right with friends, family, barbecues and fond remembrances of military personnel past and present.
