Emmalee, Kiko and I first met at Cartem’s Donuts to talk about their Aberthau Mansion wedding. I had shot at Aberthau once years ago and was excited about the opportunity to go back because it’s a BEAUTIFUL venue. (I actually ended up with 4 weddings there this season, how crazy is that?!) These two met when Emmalee chased Kiko down after a calculus class with a Post-it note asking for a date. They had the Post-it framed at their wedding and it made my ridiculously sentimental heart super happy. (I couldn’t include a photo of it because it has Emmalee’s number on it!)
In my pre-wedding questionnaire, I ask if there are any surprises I should be aware of… They indicated no on the questionnaire, but I later received an e-mail from Kiko saying to be ready to capture Emmalee’s reaction when she gets rickrolled by one of their wedding party members in the middle of speeches. Her reaction was SOLID and it definitely set the tone for a very fun wedding reception.
Huge thanks to my amazing second shooter, Amber, for helping with this Aberthau Mansion wedding.
