Deer Path Inn Wedding

It’s funny how, sometimes, life takes us the long way to our destination. Eventually, we find what we’ve always been looking for and realize that it’s always been there. Our delightful couple, whom we are excited to present today, had experienced their own such long path before finding each other again. Aimee and Chase share their childhood memories. Their families were always close together and went on annual camping trips to Wisconsin. Aimee and Chase were merely friends then.

As life moved on, they each went their own way, attended college, made new friends, discovered what they were passionate about. But one new year’s eve they just happened to be at the same party again. The party was a historical reunion of the two and marked the beginning of a new chapter in Aimee’s and Chase’s life (marked it with fireworks and a single kiss 😉 ). Following that, while the two lived in different parts of the World, they stayed in touch, texted, talked over the phone, and visited each other. Time was going by and friends and the families were getting anxious about the inevitable. And so it happened: one beautiful evening, while enjoying the sunset in Wisconsin, Chase asked Aimee to be his wife. Aimee said “yes” and the two celebrated together with their families.
I asked Chase and Aimee what is their favorite quality about each other? Chase wrote,”Her adventurous spirit. She is always challenging me to go out of my comfort zone and see the world. Second favorite is her drive and determination in achieving anything she sets her mind to.” Aimee wrote, “I admire that he is constantly trying to improve himself. He has this curious mind that wants to continually learn new things and he often discusses these new ideas with me…which brings me to my second favorite thing: I love that he genuinely cares what I think.” It’s easy to see why they choose to have a short engagement and hard not to adore this couple. They are incredible!

There were so many beautiful moments during the wedding day. Tears of joy were shed throughout the day: during the gift exchange, getting ready with mom and of course the first look with dad.  Aimee’s mom provided the something blue and something borrowed which was a handmade garter she herself wore on her wedding day.

Chase and Aimee planned a little choreographed dance which showed how in-sync and graceful they are. The love between their families couldn’t go unnoticed. During the Father of the bride’s speech, he mentioned jokingly how he has been friends for years with Chase’s father and little did everyone know, this was an arranged marriage. Once the dancing begun everyone was out on the floor, even the grandparents danced the night away!

It was truly an honor and a joy to document the long awaited union between Aimee and Chase and watching the families celebrate! Thank you for choosing us, Rochester wedding photographers, to document your destination wedding.

To end, here is an interesting fact about Aimee and Chase. Enjoy!

Chase: I once caught a fish with my bare hands.

Aimee: I’m shocked that Chase’s interesting fact wasn’t that he’s “really good” at ping pong”;). My interesting fact is that my name, in French, it means “Beloved”.
