Zeis – 6.24.17

#SugarAndZeis #ThePerfectHashtag for these two sweethearts. Colleen and Haydn’s wedding was definitely one of our favorites from this year! We loved this wedding so much because of all the sentimental elements that there were involved in the day. From doing the finishing touches of getting ready in Colleen’s childhood home (where her mom brought out the most adorable photos of a young Colleen as a flower girl and playing dress up with her brother), to them driving off as newly weds in her father’s car, there were personal touches wherever you looked at this wedding! We just felt so connected to these two and they brought us to tears several times during the day with just how much love they have for each other and surrounding them. One of our favorite moments of the day was after the ceremony when we were getting ready to do the family portraits, Haydn had the biggest smile on his face as he looked at Colleen. “Hey, Mrs. Zeis! That’s my wife up there, that’s MY wife” is what he kept saying over and over (excuse us while our hearts just melt over here). And let’s not forget their bridal party! What a fun, goofy, amazing little group they had! And we so appreciated how welcome everyone made us feel. We came into the day to do a job and as strangers but left feeling like we were part of the family. Colleen and Haydn, thank you for being one of the sweetest couples ever and we wish you nothing but happiness in your many years of marriage.
