Nicole & Keith wedding photographer – New Richmond, WI

July 19th, 2009 – I traveled north for the wedding of Nicole & Keith at the Heritage Center in New Richmond, Wisconsin. It was a nice wedding, at a great ceremony location, filled with loving family members and friends. There was little scare of some severe weather & tornado warnings which passed through prior & during the wedding ceremony, but as soon as they were married the sun came out and shined down on the newly married couple.

Prior to the storm, it was a really beautiful summer day. It was little humid, but we were able to get a lot of photos done prior to the wedding ceremony. Nicole & Keith chose to see each other beforehand with a private & intimate meeting between them.

Here we have lovely Nicole in her beautiful beaded lace wedding dress & birdcage veil walking to see Keith for the first time on their wedding day…

As I previously posted, the New Richmond Heritage Center looked like a great place for wedding portraits and it was! Here’s a photo on the porch of the log cabin located there…

Nicole was all smiles whenever she was near Keith…

We headed back to start on bridal party photos and that’s when the skies starting getting dark. While the bridesmaids were rounding up some umbrellas, I had to get some portraits of Nicole and her birdcage veil. She looked beautiful as you can see in this black & white photo…

I really like how the digital treatment affects the mood of these next two photos…

We had to go into the chapel to finish up the bridal party & family portraits as the rain started to pour down. Before we knew it, it was time for the wedding ceremony to begin. I captured this great moment of Nicole and her father after he walked her down the aisle…

We then headed up the road to Suzanna’s Restaurant & Banquet Center for the wedding reception. While stopping at the bar before entering the reception, Nicole & Keith practiced on their moves for their first dance…

It was a great end to a great wedding for this great couple. Once again, a storm will not dampen the love & happiness that two people can share. I thank you both, Nicole & Keith, for having me as your wedding photographer. I hope your having a blast on your honeymoon and I wish you both the best!

  1. Shannon did not mention the thunder, and several warnings from the tornado sirens. – It actually was a pretty nerve racking, but thanks to Porter, the photographs truly captured the love and joy of the day, and we are very happy with his services.

    Thanks Porter!
    All the best,

    Keith Yamry

  2. I love the mood of your photography.
