Dustin & Maddie | Fall Wedding + Outdoor Reception

Dustin & Maddie’s wedding was magical in every way.  The rain stopped and the sun shone just in time for pictures.  The ceremony was personal and heartfelt, the dresses and decorations were beautiful, and on and on.  But was made it possibly the most “important” wedding we had ever photographed, is that is was a family wedding.  That’s right, Dustin is Kristin’s nephew, and Maddie is now her niece!

Who knew that little guy that walked his grandma Jannie down the aisle in Kristin’s wedding 16 years ago would someday be a groom that I (Kristin) would get to photograph alongside Heather!  We were truly honored to capture all of these memories for the happy couple.

After 6 years 8 months and 15 days together, Dustin & Maddie finally tied the knot!  When I (Kristin) first met Maddie 6 years ago, I could tell she was “the one” for Dustin.  Watching their relationship grow all these years has been so much fun, and Maddie became a Darling long before it was official - although she is a Packers fan, in a family full of loyal Bears fans.

Show Dustin and Maddie some love!  15 comments below and they will receive an 11×14 mounted print of their choice.  After 30 comments, the couple will receive a complimentary 16×20 mounted print of their choice!  So go on, spend a few seconds leaving a comment on this blog post by Friday, October 14th  and you can say you chipped in to get the portrait they have hanging on their wall.  🙂 

XOXOXO,

Heather & Kristin
