Joe & Keegan – A Summer Wedding at Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa

Joe and Keegan are a true match for each other. In the very first call we had with them they told us all about their first date (at a Bernie Sanders rally! How cool is that?!?!), the fact that they love video games, and that they love cooking and landscaping together. They have so many common interests that it’s easy to see why they get along so well. Not only that, they are both genuine and kind people who put their hearts into the people around them. If you missed their engagement session post, you’ll want to check that one out!

Their wedding day at Eagle Ridge was beautiful! It was a gorgeous day of course, but beyond that, it was beautiful in the elements they pulled together to make it their own. First, Joe and Keegan hosted and cooked brunch for their family and wedding party. We thought that was a very unique and kind gesture! Though they got ready in two different places, they shared a sweet first look and gave us plenty of time to travel to a few locations for photos. Then their wedding party joined us and we loved that each side consisted of a lively mix of people who simply wanted to love and support Joe and Keegan. Their ceremony was sweet and their reception was a blast! The lavender and champagne elements they wove in throughout the day added to the romance surrounding them.

When our couples want to go out on the boats we are all about it! Of course you risk getting wet, but these photos are so fun!

At Eagle Ridge, cocktail hours in the courtyard are the best! It’s an easy location for your guests to get to and gives them another view of the lake and property. It also allows Jeff time to take detail photos of your reception room without guests being in there 😉

Golden hour down by the lake in the summer when these purple flowers are in bloom is my FAVORITE!!!!!!!
