Neises - Goebel

Last week we had the pleasure of working with Elisabeth and Curtis. What a fun day! We were slightly out of practice with a slow start to our shooting year, but we made it happen! I started the day by meeting Elisabeth and the bridesmaids at the salon in west Wichita to get updo's and make up done before the big events of the day. It was a very nice relaxing time. It was good to visit with Elisabeth and get to know her a little better. It was also fun as the entire bridal party were nurses or ready to graduate nursing school! With Barry and I and the entire wedding party and other guests, everyone was in good hands at this wedding!!! It didn't take long for the brides hair to be complete, tiara in place and ready to roll. Although we cannot say the same for the precious flower girl whose gorgeous hair took 3 whole hours to complete! Then it was off to make sure all the equipment was accounted for and we met Elisabeth at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton to finish get ready.
Elisabeth wore classic white, strapless gown with a beaded and pleated bodice, and skirt that wrapped and gathered at one side of her waist. Layers of toule with embelishments peeked through below, very cool... The ladies wore two different shades of strapless blue tea length dresses to match the flowers and color scheme chosen for the day, very summer like and fun!
Although the bride and groom chose not to see each other prior to the ceremony, the photographer, Tony from GS Memory Maker, set up the couple on either side of the chapel door where they could talk and hold hands but not see each other.
At 2 o'clock, the doors to the church opened and Elisabeth and her father walked into the sanctuary filled with about 300 of their closest family and friends. They celebrated a full Mass prior to running off in the trolley and to Old Town for pictures with Tony.
Fat Cat high tailed it to the reception hall at St. Peters in Schulte and readied all our equipment for the nights party.
Complete Music then announced the bridal party into the room to the roar of the crowd. Traditional events followed with dinner, a slide show, toasts, and cutting of cake. The wedding cake was gorgeous with shades of blue flowers to match the boquets and dresses. We'll let Elisabeth share the secret about the cake... The couple's first dance was partially choreographed and they did a great job, probably because Elisabeth changed into her pink street shoes! Sweet!
What a great night, Curtis wore a big smile the whole night and it is apparent they are both made for one another.
Congratulations on your marriage and the new job! What a great way to start your life together! Enjoy your trip this summer, you completely deserve it! Best of luck to both of you- stay tuned in the coming weeks for Curtis and Elisabeth's prequel!
