Cristen and Jeremy’s Toledo Wedding by Kurt Nielsen Photography

Cristen and Jeremy were married on June 25, 2011 in a beautiful ceremony in the Atrium at the Ramada Hotel in Toledo surrounded by their family and friends.
They even had a personalized Unity Candle for their special day!
Before the ceremony began, I arrived early and captured the special images of the bride,  groom and wedding party getting ready along with some behind the scenes photos.

After the ceremony, we took more of the formal shots of the newlyweds.
We then adjourned to the Ramada’s Ballroom where Cristen and Jeremy’s colors of choice, Black and Purple, were displayed prominently.
The Champagne fountain was a hit!
The food was great!
The Wedding Cake from Eston’s Bakery was perfect, as usual.
It was obvious by Cristen’s protective garb, she was ready for a Cake War!
And war it was!
Don’t worry, it was love at first fight!
The couple danced their first dance as man and wife.
The bride tossed her bouquet.
Then, the groom, with help from some trusted adversaries, had a special surprise for his new bride!
It was a surprise honeymoon trip to Hawaii, complete with their own personal hula dancers!
And the bride was very excited and completely amazed at the gift!
Of course, the groom did finally toss the garter.
A great time was had by all for the entire evening!
Congratulations Cristen and Jeremy!  May you have many happy years together!

Kristee and Shawn’s Wedding Reception by Kurt Nielsen Photography

Kristee and Shawn were married on September 11, 2010 at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, but their wedding reception was held on June 24, 2011 at Dusseau’s Reception Center in Temperance, Michigan.  They waited until June to have the reception because Shawn had enlisted in the Air Force and needed to go through his training before they could plan the reception.
Before the wedding festivities began, the bride, groom, families and wedding party met at Wildwood Metropark for formal and fun wedding pictures.  Here are a few of the images we captured.

After the formal shots were finished, the wedding party and families headed to the Bier Stube for a drink and some karaoke!
Then it was off to Dusseau’s for the real party!

The food at Dusseau’s was great as always!
Kristee doesn’t like cake, so instead of the traditional wedding cake, she wanted a cupcake tower.
Kristee  did the traditional throwing of the bouquet and Shawn tossed the garter.
Also keeping with tradition, Kristee and her father danced and Shawn did the mother/son dance.
Everyone danced the night away to Josh Bollin of Super Sounds DJs.

We also took Kurt’s Kustom Keepsakes green screen photo booth to everyone’s delight.
Congratulations Kristee and Shawn and Happy 1st Anniversary!  May you have many happy and healthy years together!
