Hannah & Nate got married on August 8th, 2015 at the beautiful and romantic Olmsted. The ceremony and reception couldn’t have gone more perfect! We had the opportunity of photographing Hannah’s sister’s wedding Katie & Dan last March and I can’t tell you how thrilled we were to be a part of two celebrations with the Leezer family! They are kind, generous, and beautiful sisters and we were truly honored to be a part of the celebrations with this awesome crew! Hannah was a dream to work with. She truly loved each and every bit of the wedding planning and all of our meeting were filled with laughs and anticipation around the big day!
A few words about Hannah & Nate:
“Nate proposed on April Fool’s Day, 2014 (how romantic!). He said he wanted to pick a date that he could remember, although he had the ring for over a month before he proposed! He woke up early and made me breakfast before he left for work. Once he woke me up, he had me sit down for breakfast and gave me a goody bag of treats. It mostly was chocolate candy but at the bottom of the bag was a ring box. When I opened it, inside was a little folded up piece of paper where the ring should be that said “April Fools!” I was shocked but of course knew he was joking. When I looked at him he was on one knee in our living room with the dogs by his side! He asked if I would marry him and I immediately said yes! That was the beginning of the best time of my life, wedding planning!!!”
“My favorite part of the wedding was all the planning before hand! I know some people get stressed about it but I loved every second of it! I loved the meetings with vendors, cake tasting, bridal showers, and all the special events leading up to the wedding! Of course the wedding day was the icing on the cake but the whole process was so much fun! I couldn’t have done it without my mom and sister and Nate really stepped-up and enjoyed the planning too! It all fell into place (like everyone said it would) and made for the most perfect wedding day ever! It was truly a day we would never forget!”
Congrats to Hannah & Nate! We loved being a part of your family for a few days this past year! Big thanks to the Olmsted for always being so great to work with. Kenny Sauter for making the evening flow perfectly as usual and my incredible 2nd shooter Dustin Alton Strupp! Couldn’t do this without you buddy!
