Happy 10/16!!!!! One of our favorite quotes is “sometimes the most ordinary things can be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.” TenSixteen Photography is about capturing the big moments in life, but for us as a couple we know you can’t have the big moments without the hundreds of small moments that change your life forever. Today we celebrate all the little things that make these momentous days so special.
I wouldn’t say they are opposites – because the connotation sounds conflicting and disagreeing. I would say that their differences compliment the other perfectly – one picks up where the other leaves off without effort. Both have many similarities as well, both are kind and loving, cherish their families, and both are just plain adorable. They love one another wholeheartedly, and look out for one another in a caring and involved way. Their connection is true and unfaltering, so it was no question why we were so excited when Kari contacted us with the news that she and David were engaged. Having the pleasure of capturing her brother’s wedding a couple years ago, we always enjoy working with familiar people. When those people just happen to be kind to boot – you know it’s going to be a great day! Without disappointment, it was a flawless, laid-back, joyful day – one that you have to check out!! Enjoy Kari & David’s wedding day!!

They continued dating for around 3 and a half years before that night in December when they became something more….
Two weeks prior to their engagement, Chelsey was driving home from work and heard a local country station having a contest on the air for upcoming Leap Day. In honor of an old Irish tradition, the station was wanting women to call in and propose to the men they love. Chelsey immediately text Brad – “Just heard on WIL that on Leap day, it’s an Irish tradition that a woman can propose to the man she loves. Looks like I will be proposing to the man I love today… Skip Schumacher (Cardinals Baseball player). Just Kidding… “
They’d been dating awhile, and it seemed as though everywhere they went people were asking them when they’d finally get married. Brian teased that every time someone asked he would tack on a year to the day he planned to propose. He was old fashioned and when the time was right, he wanted it to be a complete surprise. She figured she would know it was coming, yet somehow Brian bought a ring and asked her parents all the while Dana had no idea.
