Hello to the Strattons

Kelsey and Alan Stratton were married in Savage, MN. This being my first wedding where I spanned the entire day (instead of having just one job for a couple of hours), I've learned a WHOLE lot.

Kelsey planned the entire thing with her mother and amazingly, not only was she a beautiful bride, but she was still running the show on her big day!!!

So congratulations to Kelsey and Alan and thank you for letting me participate in your day!

Kelsey and Alan are moving straight to Lousianna after their "mini-moon" in Minnesota. Alan just got stationed at a base there.
One of the neatest parts of the wedding was that the Groomsmen came from all parts of the services, Alan's brother is a Lt. in the Army, Alan is an airman in the airforce and Kelsey's brother is a Marine. These are some of the shots where the brothers are messing around.

Jake (the 13 year old) came a little late to the photos, so as soon as he got a chance he jumped right in and wanted to be caught up. I love this one because he's getting the low-down on what is about to happen.

The wedding bands, the ring was just like Kelsey, very delicate, but beautiful.

Hands down, this might be my favourite picture so far. It looks like he's wispering how wonderful life is going to be now they are together.

They are a wonderful couple and I'm so very excited for them!
