Mr. and Mrs. Joseph and Kari Root!

Being with this group feels like home.  And, after photographing most of their friends and family, it should!  Last fall, Joe surprised Kari with an engagement (disguised as a new home photo shoot) that I blogged about here!  This fall, it was time for their wedding.

Kari prepared at her parents’ house.

And the ceremony was held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Medina, NY.

We traveled to the Royalton Ravine for their group and couple photos.

(where we paused for about a half hour for a storm front to pass us)

And, although there is evidence in the photo of the rain (check out his vest), I think they are made that much sweeter as a result.

This was a beautiful blessing by Joe’s dad.

And, then, they danced!!

A fun and fabulous night for all!  Thank you, Joe and Kari, for including us.  We wish you the very best marriage and family!!
