Cassandra and Matt…the kind of couple that is just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the out, and that’s saying a lot! Their wedding was abundant in faith, family, friends and love. One of their greatest desires for their special day was to make sure all of their guests felt important and had a good time. From what I saw, they definitely accomplished just that.
Their ceremony was held at Calvary Lutheran in the grove area. It was the first wedding they have ever held down there, and it was absolutely amazing! I love outdoor weddings, and this location did not disappoint. Tall, towering pines lined up in the background and fields cascaded away in the opposite direction. It was the perfect place to hold a beautiful event and celebration of love and faith.
There were many amazing vendors that helped make this wedding day dream become a reality, and I hope you take a moment to look through the list of them below. Another huge mention I need to make is to the bride’s mother, Nancy. She took all of Cassandra’s ideas and made them happen. From the decorated walkway to the ceremony site, to the Welcome sign with personalized magnets, to the homemade photobooth, just to name a few. Read what Cassandra wrote about her mom.
“Nancy Schram went above and beyond to make our wedding day something that most brides dream about. I don’t know how I got blessed with such an amazing mother.”
Cassandra and Matt, you two are absolutely amazing! I feel blessed to have been the one to document such a beautiful love and celebration. God bless you in this new life together, and I look forward to seeing where He takes you!
