Mr. + Mrs. Koetter

September 21, 2018 | Bernheim Forest | Kentucky


I've known the Koetter family since I was born. My Dad has worked for their family at Koetter Woodworking since before I was born. In August of this year, (yes you read that right!) TJ Koetter contacted me on the wedding website called Wedding Wire on behalf of his son Garrett, and soon to be daughter-in-law Sarah. I knew as soon as I read his message that TJ didn't realize that the face behind Elyse Rochelle Photography belonged to me! When we had our first phone conversation later that day, I made sure to mention who I was. The surprise in his voice was priceless!   


Now let's fast forward only a couple of weeks to September 21, 2018 - The Big Day! My Dad and I (whom I dragged along to help) made our way to Bernheim Forest for the ceremony. This particular day was overcast and rainy, which is never a good sign for an outdoor wedding. But Mother nature granted us a break in the weather for their very intimate ceremony, with only family and very close friends. She even let up enough for us to get these GORGEOUS images of the newlyweds. I hope you enjoy looking through these images as much as I enjoyed getting to capture them!!
