Stay awhile and enjoy the pretty!







Let’s just take look at this wedding. First, Wildlife Prairie Park is an absolutely gorgeous place to have a wedding. Then add a beautiful bride and groom, friends, family and laughter and you’ve just perfectly described Derek and Natalie’s wedding. Who knew that when Natalie attended a birthday party with a friend, she’d end up meeting the man of her dreams.

Smiles and laughter These two just lit up when they saw each other.Plus, it’s always extra special when a couple gets married after living the life of a long distance couple. With Derek living in Nebraska and Natalie in Illinois, it’s so fun to see these two get married, become one and start their life together.

During sunset, we went out to capture a few images in the gorgeous light. We laughed, chased some buffalo around the enclosure and Natalie and Derek got to spend sometime together as husband and wife. These two even ran for some of the time so we wouldn’t miss the sun setting. The night ended with family and friends on the dance floor and let me tell you, this dance floor was packed the whole night. They were surrounded by family and friends, who are just as fun loving as Derek and Natalie, celebrating the two of them.
