A BEACH WEDDING AT ELKINS RESORT
A lakeside wedding at Elkins Resort was the perfect setting for Kenna and AJ. Family and friends from out of town would be able to relax in cabins days before the actual wedding date. Excursions on the lake for water sports, fishing, or just checking out the scenery could be enjoyed by everyone.
Kenna and AJ had made plans for just about everything for their day and when that day came, everyone felt like they were on a vacation. Well maybe not Kenna and AJ, but they still were able to relax, soak in the scenery and some quality time with everyone who came out to help them celebrate their big lakeside wedding.
As the day got started, the dread “r” word started being whispered as the clouds rolled in and the sky grew a little darker. Luckily, we only were subjected to a few light sprinkles during our portrait session and it cleared up nicely right before the ceremony.
One of my favorite photos of the day came when Kenna and her dad were walking down the aisle and the emotions hit her as soon as she saw AJ — and to think people say a first look can ruin the ceremony experience. Along with a few happy tears during the lakeside wedding, there were plenty of laughs and a quality set of heartfelt vows that Kenna and AJ shared.
What this couple was really looking forward to after the ceremony was the party. They knew their friends and family would take to the dance floor and not leave until someone told them they had to. With so many people packing the dance floor, there were fun and crazy moments to capture throughout the night. And not to mention they worked in a karaoke session during the reception.
As the clock struck 11 p.m., the music shutdown and everyone made their way back to their cabins ready for some well earned rest and a delicious stack of huckleberry panackage in Elkins lodge the next morning. Not a bad way to wrap up an amazing lakeside wedding at Elkins Resort.
