We loved being a part of Laura + Wiel’s wedding. They made us feel like family while we were there. The whole wedding party was a blast as well – and so friendly!

We had to split up the posts and make it a two-parter because everything was just perfect and there were way too many photos to show off! So here’s part one – the festivities up through the ceremony. Tomorrow we’ll show off their portraits and the reception. Also, check out their engagement session if you haven’t seen it!

The wedding was in Epen, a part of South Holland we’ve never seen before. It was absolutely beautiful!

Allie got distracted by the cute puppies…

 

Wow – what an amazing couple and location! These were taken in North Amsterdam, a part of Amsterdam we’ve never been to before. We’re so excited to be traveling back to The Netherlands for Laura + Wiel’s wedding at the beginning of July!

And just for fun, here’s the coolest bar ever where we hung out after called Noorderlicht Cafe:

one more post for laura + michael‘s wedding because it was just that awesome. their slideshow (where we experimented with video as well) is a must see – view it here first!

not only was the venue perfect, the weather was too! 65 degrees in february! they couldn’t have asked for a better day.

we’ve never seen a more chill bride than laura.

introducing something new for the reason!

we rented a nikon d3s for laura + michael’s wedding at the w hotel in midtown to experiment with video. we absolutely love the outcome of mixing the stills with the video to tell the story of their wedding day.

we’d love your feedback since we’re thinking about offering this. we’re by no means experts yet, but it was super fun to play with!

enjoy!
