Down the Aisle: Zack + Alicia

Zack + Alicia were married in the darling south/eastern Nebraska town of Johnson. The only thing more beautiful than the peaceful countryside itself, was of course..... the bride. :) I never had the privilege of meeting Alicia or Zack before yesterday. Zack plays football for the Chicago Bears and with a crazy training schedule, they had to do most of their wedding planning (including working with me) from Illinois. What fun to finally get to meet them! The ladies got ready in the house next door to the church. What a cozy place!


Emir hung out with the guys as they got ready in the church basement....


How could I resist a hay bale?


Zack is quite the character. He has mastered the tough-guy look of the NFL, but, I love this photo next to Alicia on the porch swing where he was all smiles. (And what a gorgeous smile it is!)


Word up. This is true friendship: Girlfriends all the way.


Alicia loves her bling (you did see her necklace above, right?). Her ring is nothing short of breath taking!


The reception was held at her parents house in Elk Creek, NE. They even managed to make the port-a-potty look beautiful!


These young ladies were bustin' out some serious moves on the dance floor....


The Shoot Shack was also in full effect! The wind inspired us to improvise a bit from our usual set-up. Way too many good things to post to this already massively huge sneak-peek. But here is perhaps my fave of faves....


Alicia's dad Mark is an electrician and along with her mom, Lois they set up the reception site, tree lights and all! Incredible job!

lincoln-nebraska-wedding-photographer-32Congratulations and best wishes to you both! Your wedding was fabulous and I hope you're basking in a happy post-celebration after glow! PS: Special shout out to Heidi the professional harpist Alicia + Zack hired for their ceremony: It was fabulous to see you again! Have a great summer!
