Kenzie Brokman and Zach Martin have known one another since middle school, but their relationship took a turn toward romance shortly before their senior year of high school. After seven years of dating, Zach took Kenzie back to re-create their first date at the putt-putt golf course in Lincoln. “The one hole in the middle of the course is where we had our first kiss,” Kenzie says, “and that’s where he proposed.”
Kenzie wanted “big, pretty flowers that would pop in the photos,” which Hillis & Co. delivered. On the day of the wedding, big, pretty flakes of snow fell, creating the perfect winter wonderland. Taking advantage of the snowy day, the photographer placed their wedding bands in the fresh powder—Kenzie’s a rose-gold diamond ring, and Zach’s a black band with stags and birch trees to symbolize his love of hunting. During their first-look photos, “Zach started crying, which made me cry,” says Kenzie. The bride walked down the aisle to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and soon after, became Mrs. Martin.
While stargazing in the back of his pickup truck, Andrew’s sweet summertime proposal was something right out of a fairy tale! From a summer engagement to a winter wedding, Erin and Andrew’s special day was a classic winter wonderland. With hints of evergreen and elegant wintry details, this couple’s wedding day was a storybook romance, complete with the perfect picturesque moment as the bride and groom were showered with bird seed exiting the church as husband and wife. Check out all the details from their wedding day in these lovely images by Jessica Blex Photography & Design.
FROM THE BRIDE: I wanted to remember this day for the rest of my life, so the photographer and videographer were the most important part of wedding planning for me. Reflecting back on our wedding day, my favorite memory was seeing my husband for the first time – it was perfect! My wedding day was one of the best days of my life. It was a dream come true, and I truly felt as if I was the luckiest girl in the world.
