Wedding at Bella Vista Groves
Believe it or not, this beautiful wedding at Bella Vista Groves was set up to be this couple’s nightmare. A few days before their wedding, Gabriella + Kyle got a call from their original wedding photographer who realized she booked two weddings on their date and was dropping them for the other client. In complete panic mode, Gabriella called us and booked us on the spot for her date. We quickly pulled together all the details needed and made sure they felt totally taken care of on their wedding day.
We would never wish this situation on anyone and were so happy we could be there for Gabriella + Kyle! Here’s what they have to say: “Where do we begin? Everyone tells you to invest in your wedding photographers. After all, they are the ones who will capture those special moments throughout your big day, the ones you will look back on and cherish for the rest of your lives. We have seen Sarah shoot quite a few weddings we have attended and have always LOVED her stunning work. Sarah Ellefson Photography was by far our first choice, but as you know planning a wedding is not cheap. We made the mistake of trying to “pinch some pennies” and hired someone else. Ten days before our wedding, we call Sarah, holding back tears that the photographer we had booked cancelled on us. At the time, it was as stressful and emotional for us as you could imagine. Looking back, who knew that our photographer cancelling on us ten days before our wedding would be THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAVE EVER HAPPENED to us!! We would go through all that again if that meant having Sarah and Haley shoot our wedding day. It was an absolute pleasure and joy to work with Sarah and Haley. We truly could not recommend Sarah and Haley enough! Everyone speaks on Sarah’s character–how she and Haley, both, are so kind, professional, patient, and genuine. They are those things and soooo much more. The appreciation we have for these two ladies is hard to put into words. With only having ten days, they truly blew us away and surpassed every expectation and desire we had for our wedding photos. We wish we had booked them from the beginning and had these two amazing ladies by our side all along the way of planning our wedding. They are SO ORGANIZED–I can not stress this enough! We accomplished so much in just those ten days. If you want to feel comfortable, taken care of, heard, supported, and special, while having a wonderful time, these two are the best dynamic duo we could recommend! Lastly, you receive some sneak peeks while on your honeymoon, which is the most exciting thing and so special! As you could imagine, we were dying to see our wedding photos and counting down the days. Those friends who had booked Sarah before us told us they received their photos even sooner than the estimated time Sarah had given them. This also ended up being our case!! We were THRILLED to receive our wedding photos LESS than four weeks after our big day! We can not wait to book Sarah Ellefson Photography again in the future to capture other special family moments. We love you Sarah and Haley!!!”
