It was no surprise when Jeff asked Stephanie to marry him.  They have been together since high school and are absolutely the cutest couple around!  We all grew up near Geneva, Nebraska and went to Fillmore Central High School.  They were a few years older than I was, but since it was a small town, I still knew who they were.  When I heard that they were engaged I was so happy for them.  A few weeks later they had contacted me about doing some engagement photos (you can check them out here).  We had a great time.  Ty, their oldest was also so fun in front of the camera!  They loved their photos and asked if I could shoot their wedding also!  Of course, I was excited 🙂

Jeff and Stephanie had picked out Bellevue Berry Farm to have their wedding ceremony and reception.  As a Nebraska Wedding Photographer, this was my first time here and absolutely loved everything about it.  It is such a beautiful venue with the ceremony being held outdoors and the reception indoors.  It was a cloudy day, and we were waiting for the rain, which thankfully held off until after the ceremony.  I love how Bellevue Berry Farm had their names right as you pulled in.

Stephanie was surrounded by her best friends that day.  Even though the bathroom was a bit small for 6 people, we managed to have some great laughs when she was getting ready!

Getting Ready

Bellevue Berry Farm has such a rustic charm.  It is basically a dream of mine to have a home with this exposed wood in it.  This is one of my favorite parts of this place.  I loved Stephanie’s dress and it fit perfectly into this setting.

Mr. and Mrs. Grant took some time for some photos themselves.  It was a bit chilly, but well worth every minute!

These two might have been my favorite people at this wedding.  Ty and Kenna stole the show as they came down the isle.  They are pretty lucky to have such great parents.  The cutest?  Right?!

All of the details that Stephanie and Jeff had planned went great at Bellevue Berry Farm.  From the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses, the centerpieces, and of course all of the cheesecake!  Seriously — Amazing!

Wedding Reception

Bellevue Berry Farm had beautiful lighting.  We had lots of laughs, tears, and smiles during the toasts and first dances.  Jeff and Stephanie are blessed to have so many friends and family support their life together and lead in such great example.  I was so lucky to have witnessed this marriage!

The party begins!  This was one of the best receptions that I have been to.  It was so fun being able to see so many people from my hometown and to be able to catch up.  We danced and sang and had a great time celebrating the marriage of these two wonderful people!
