Can you feel the happiness? I can! This right here is a true Love Story! After knowing the background of Kori and Fred, the first thing that comes to my mind is "Love Waits".
Here's a little ditty about Fred and Kori:
They initially met in 1988. Kori's cousin Kurt brought Fred (his college roommate) to a cousin's wedding, as a wing man. Fred has essentially been a part of the family ever since. He was one of those friends who was invited to all of the family functions. Basically, Kori and Fred have been (like) family for almost 30 years. In February of 2013, Kori ventured to her cousin Kurt and his wife, Mary's vacation home in Seven Springs, for a weekend get away. Guess who was also there? You got it...Fred! Kori said it best when she said "that weekend the spark ignited". Ooooh-la-la!! On Thanksgiving Eve in 2015, after having pizza delivered to the house for dinner, Fred asked Kori to eat their dinner as his fiance. She said YES! And the rest, as they say is history.
What a great pair these two make. She is a dream bride. Very easy to work with, knew what she wanted, and knew she wanted me to photograph their special day. One of the calmest and coolest brides I've had the chance to work with. She is truly a photographer's dream! Fred, I can't say enough about him either. Very respectful, courteous, funny, and did I mention good looking?. Kori has definitely got her a good one! Much deserved. Two beautiful people.
Wedding Day! Kori's petite frame was the perfect fit for her stunning tee-length dress. These two were a hoot to photograph. Fred's favorite moment from the wedding was saying his vows to Kori and Kori's favorite moment from the wedding was kissing her husband for the first time.
They described their wedding day as a "fast, fun excellent day and evening". I like feedback and asked what advice would they offer to other couples planning a wedding. Their advice: Set aside more time than you think that you need for photos. I couldn't agree with them more.
