Martika & Olen's Wedding at The Farm at South Mountain
11 . 24. 2018
After their shared moment together, Martika shared another important moment with her father as he saw her in her wedding gown for the first time. Shortly after, it was time for their ceremony where they spoke their vows, said "I do", sealed it with a kiss and shared in laughter with their family as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife.
After their ceremony, we wasted no time in snapping photos of their bridal party and then, my favorite part, I got to take just them off for some husband and wife photos. With the winter months shortening our days, we didn't have too much sun to play with, but none the less, there were plenty of special moments captured between them.
Martika and Olen were fellow NAU alum that I meet when they reached out during their wedding planning. They were looking for an affordable wedding photographer that could capture their family friendly, rustic wedding day. Come their special day, I followed them around The Farm at South Mountain as Olen set up the reception decorations, and as Martika was helped into her wedding gown with her bridesmaids at her side. We captured their "not so first look" as they held hands and spoke to each other before their ceremony.
The rest of the evening was filled with family speeches, laughter, story telling and many memories.
To Martika and Olen!
