Kyle & Kori: Rapid City Wedding Photographer

Kyle and Kori, I’m so thankful to have been asked to photograph your wedding. It was gorgeous—a true labor of love.  And although the setting and the details were stunning, I admire you for being most excited about your marriage to one another. Thank you for asking me to capture your new beginning. Enjoy a few of my favorites!


From the Bride & Groom…

What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?

Kyle: Seeing my stunning bride walking towards me down the aisle.

Kori: Being totally surprised when Kyle was singing “True Companion” as I walked down the aisle… the same song he sang when he asked me to marry him ~ Amazing!  I’m so impressed by his talent and have never seen him perform live until our wedding day. I am one lucky lady!

Jessica’s Take: I would have to agree that Kori’s walk down the aisle was amazing. I’m glad all eyes (none of which were dry, by the way) were on her, because I’m positive I stared blankly at Kyle when he began to sing. It took me a minute to realize that it was his voice—I couldn’t believe it! It was incredibly sweet, and Kori’s reaction was pure happiness.

What was your favorite detail of the wedding day?

Kyle: God’s perfect design of the setting and His divine planning of the weather.

Kori: Ditto to Kyle’s answer – we could not have asked for a more beautiful and perfect place to say “I Do!”

Jessica’s Take: I loved Kori’s headband and jewelry, as well as the lanterns placed along the aisle.

Any advice for other couples planning a wedding? 

Kyle: Keep it simple and make it as stress free as possible, your wedding should be a party, not a performance! If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly!

Kori: Remember to focus on the purpose for your BIG day – it’s about the end result – the MARRIAGE.

What’s the best part of being married so far?

Kyle: Waking up every morning with my best friend and knowing I have someone to experience all the joys of life with.

Kori: Knowing that my favorite person and the father our beautiful daughter is officially my Husband and we get to enjoy the ride of LIFE together!

    Kyle and Kori’s wedding was THE most beautiful wedding I have ever been too! The setting was amazing….God’s perfect church…His own creation. The best thing about the wedding though was the spiritual side of it. They are both so in love with each other and the ceremony was centered around their commitment to each other, and having Christ in their marriage to make it strong. Was truly an amazing celebration and I feel so blessed to have shared the day with them.

    Jessica, your photos are amazing as always! You truly captured the feeling of the day!
