Gosh, where do I even being with this blog post?!  Savanna and Garrett had the most PERFECT wedding day!  Even though it rained, it did not put a damper on having a great time and celebrating two of the sweetest people!  Savanna and Garrett planned a beautiful rustic chic wedding in Wilbur, Nebraska.  She had so many handmade details by friends and family including the decor at the reception and the flowers.  Her dress was a beautiful high neck, lace, ivory dress while Garrett wore a tan suit and cowboy boots.  It matched the light green bridesmaids dresses and touches of orange flowers perfectly! Take a look 🙂

Savanna and her girls got ready at her parents house in Wilbur.  Soon-to-be Mrs. Epp relaxed in the morning with her friends and family, as every bride should on her wedding day.  She picked out items that actually meant something to each other, like the garters having the Cubs team on it and wearing Packer’s socks for her grandma.  Each and every detail was thought out.  They went to the Saint Wenceslaus Catholic Church for their first look, started on family portraits and had the ceremony.  It was a beautiful Catholic ceremony while the storm clouds rolled in.  Want to see how we still managed outdoor photos in the rain?!   Keep scrolling 🙂

Outdoor photos in the rain you ask?!  Why Yes, when you have a bridal party that is as great as this one, there was no stopping us.  We got so lucky that the Wilbur Hotel looks as amazing as it does and it has a covered porch big enough for this wedding party!  We used our trusty clear umbrellas and had a great time!  By the end of our photo time, the rain subsided and we did manage just a few more under some trees back by the church.  Thanks for being such great troopers!!  To be honest,  these are some of my favorite photos I have taken to date!  I love the look and all of the laughter!  Even the Bride and Groom portraits turned out stunning!  Just look at them, how could they not 😉

Cheers from the Bridal Party

The bridal party went on their way to a few bars and Maxine and I went to the reception hall only to find out how much time and work really went into this wedding.  This rustic chic wedding was stunning.  Every single detail was in its’ place.  The head table was breath-taking, the cake table looked and smelled scrumptious, and the homemade whipped topping at the coffee bar was to die for!!  As a Nebraska Wedding Photographer, this rustic chic wedding was exactly what my artistic soul craved.  I loved every minute of shooting all the details and spending time with their sweet families.

I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding to wrap up my summer with.  Savanna and Garrett are two of the sweetest people that I have met and so is their family.  This rustic chic wedding was so perfectly done and I LOVED spending the day and evening with you guys.  I hope you had a great honeymoon and enjoy reliving the day again though these photos!
