As I continue to prepare for my own wedding, dwindling down to the final weeks, putting every last touch on the details. I have started to think about some of the different wedding traditions I have watched family, friends and clients partake in. One of the first that comes to mind is the 'four somethings'. Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something blue. This has to be one of my favorites, so I have decided use it as a theme for my next four blog posts.
Part I: Something Old
I took the word old not literally as in age, or in time, but rather the meaning behind the tradition. Something old represents continuity, or unbroken and consistent existence. I found myself recalling a lovely October wedding I was privileged to photograph last fall and have decided to use their story to represent a love that had been building for several years before marriage, and has the foundation to continue for a lifetime.
Blake and Teague were married at The Next Chapter Winery in New Prague, Minnesota. As a MN wedding photographer, I knew from the moment I woke up that morning (and from numerous views on my weather app) that perfect October day would be magical for the couple. I must admit, magical was an understatement! Between the amazing winery setting, the first look with an unexpected visitor, to grandma on the dance floor. I cannot even begin to name all of the wonderful moments I was able to witness!
