Probably one of the nicest, friendliest, kindest, funnest people I got to meet in 2012, Kari is a gem! I had connected with Kari via e-mail and video chat for the months prior to her wedding without ever meeting her fiancé, Jacob. The day of the wedding my sister and I drove up to the home where Jacob & his men were getting ready and after shooting some shots at the house we were able to drive Jacob & his best man over to the ceremony site. It was then that it felt like I’ve known them for a long, long time. Jacob & Kari are full of laughter, joy, love, and all other kinds of sugar and spice. Seriously. They are.
I would say one of the best parts of the day was after the ceremony when we were heading to the reception site. Kari had this wild idea to go to the local carnival and take some wedding party pictures on the rides! Hello, of course I’m going to jump onto that idea. I love any type of ride or roller coaster! Thankfully the carnival let the whole herd of us in without having to pay and we even were able to jump on a couple of rides to snap some pictures. It was really awesome.
The whole wedding was wonderful and Kari’s personality could be seen all over the place because she made all of those details herself. I loved this wedding and I’m so thankful that my sister and I got to travel to Illinois once again to shoot an amazing wedding!
Congratulations Jacob & Kari! Welcome to California (they moved RIGHT after they got married) and may your life together be full of bliss.
