Elyse was a past Bridesmaid of mine from Whitney and Andrew's Wedding a couple of years ago so I was so thrilled when she got engaged and asked me to shoot her and Kody's Wedding! This was such a fun day for so many reasons and I was honored to be a part of it.
Elyse and Kody got ready in Bloomington, near IU's campus. They had hired a couple of limo's to transport the guests and Bridal Party from campus to the the venue, Whippoorwill Hill. Well there was a small hiccup when they found out the Limo's went to Bloomington, ILLINOIS! Oooops! So the only vehicle they had available so last minute was a GIANT bus painted like a pickle. THE PICKLE BUS. They were so positive through the whole ordeal and turned that pickle into relish becuase it became the running joke all day and was actually really really fun that it was part of their story. (You'll see a photo of the girls with the bus below).
Secondly, Elyse and Kody were one of the first Weddings to ever take place at the Whippoorwill Hill, and boy was it beautiful. It was a perfect day and I am so happy for this amazing couple!
Elyse's mom's expression when she sees her makeup all done is THE BEST!!
THE PICKLE BUS!!! I love their faces as they saw it for the first time!
