Homeland Heritage Park Wedding – Celeste and Jacob

History buffs get ready for some awesome images of a Homeland Heritage Park Wedding!  I am obsessed with history and our connection to it. Family heirlooms, genealogy and the bigger picture of how humanity evolved through time leaving behind remnants of their culture and traditions, this is what I love and then add in photography and I am in hog heaven!  Jacob, being a history teacher, shared in my love and excitement in this venue and was one of the main reasons he and Celeste chose it to begin their happily every after.

History buffs get ready for some awesome images of a Homeland Heritage Park Wedding!  I am obsessed with history and our connection to it. Family heirlooms, genealogy and the bigger picture of how humanity evolved through time leaving behind remnants of their culture and traditions, this is what I love and then add in photography and I am in hog heaven!  Jacob, being a history teacher, shared in my love and excitement in this venue and was one of the main reasons he and Celeste chose it to begin their happily every after.

We began our time greeting and introducing ourselves to the groom, Jacob.  We hit it off right away and started the process of familiarizing ourselves with what a Homeland Heritage Park Wedding has to offer.  Little things like determining the path the sun will take throughout our time there aids us in being ready and thinking ahead for locations and lighting.  I think it would be funny for someone to follow us at a wedding as we check a compass, look up the radar weather forecast, stare at ceilings at various angles, and walk back and forth looking at how the light from windows casts differently at different spots.  Sure we take a moment to see if there are any particularly wonderful spots, but it is mostly about the direction of light, not a picturesque scene.  After the bridal party arrived and went through their walk through it was go time for photography.  We captured Celeste's details, took some time with Jacob in the historic church and then finished with some bridal portraits.  Then it was ceremony time.

Brian captured all the important stuff while moving his large frame like a well trained ninja.  Yes, my giant Norse man can walk as silently as a mouse even in an old wooden church.  Afterwards was formal portrait time.  We shared some laughs with Celeste and Jacob's wonderful family and then had some fun with the bridal party.  After cake cutting and some mingling with the guests in a shaded outdoor courtyard we finished our time with them with some sweet couple's portraits.  It was a great time and Brian and I are both looking forward to our next Homeland Heritage Park Wedding!
