Johnson Wedding

Nick and Mindy come with small town roots and big hearts. They decided to tie the knot on New Years Day in Gillette, Wyoming. When Mindy originally asked me to photograph her wedding and explained I would drive to her small town from my small town in CO, I had no idea what to expect of Gillette. Turns out that I was welcomed into her family and got to see lots of love from people that have seen these two through the good, bad, and ugly. Their special day was chalked full of tears, laughter, soup, dancing, prayers, hugs, and just a great celebration. Everyone comes together for moments like this and it was great to see. Enjoy this story of their wedding day!

Just a small town girl... living in a wedding day jitters world.

Family and Bridal Party

The Reception.

This might be one of my favorite candid moments from this wedding. There is something so raw and special about how this guest came to Nick and Mindy to pray for their marriage to be grounded in faith and blessing.

Guests got a kick out of blowing their party horns all night long and watching these two kiss over...and over....and over...again. ;)

There is a story behind the picture on the top right, Nick was obviously hungry mid dance and so he led his bride over to the refreshments so he could grab a quick snack and laughs from everyone in the room.

When the guests start to trickle out, the family brought the house down on the dance floor with the YMCA, of course.

Congratulations to this awesome couple on their marriage! We're all going to blink our eyes and they'll be welcoming a little one into the world, which I am also praying I get to capture some pregnancy pictures here eventually (yeah, Mindy?! haha) This wedding was a small town wedding near and dear to my heart, thanks for letting me become apart of your world for the weekend and capture your special day!
