Mr. & Mrs. West // First Baptist Church // Cairo, Nebraska

Zach and Michaela have the sweetest love story. They met when they were young and then were reintroduced at camp many years later. If you guys know anything about a camp romance you will know that it’s a great way to get to know the true character of another person.  Both Zach and Michaela spent time at Timberlake Ranch Camp and we took their engagement pictures there earlier this year. 

They both have been so blessed by wonderful, loving and supportive families and they all gathered together to celebrate their union on a cloudy day in May at the First Baptist Church in Cairo, Nebraska.  Michaela’s mom, Mandy, has a gift at details and all around the church and at the reception you could see her special touches on things! Seriously! I had to walk around admiring all the pretty things!

Zach and Michaela’s first look and time together before their wedding was one of my favorite moments during their day. I feel like Zach’s reaction was one that makes all the girls swoon and dream about. He took so much time to look at all the details of Michaela’s dress and was so enamored by his bride. Zach and Michaela surprised each other with letters and after that had a special time alone. 

The threat of rain was present all day but we had a blast taking pictures and exploring the church! We even got to go outside for a bit for some sweet pictures! I had a cute little umbrella that we got to use that reminded me of pictures from a Jane Austen book.

Michaela comes from a big family and all the kids were dressed up in the cutest outfits! I mean come on! The boys in suspenders and bow ties made my heart melt!

The reception was at the Community Center in Cairo and the couple was able to spend time talking with their guests and enjoying the special celebration with good friends and family.

Much love and happiness to the newly weds!
