Nicole & Matt: An Outdoor Summer Wedding / by Bolla Photo

Summers in the Midwest can be quite warm, to say the least. Thankfully, Nicole and Matt were well prepared with programs that doubled as fans, personalized bottles of water, and lots of welcomed shade from the massive trees at the Latzer Homestead.

Absolutely love all the gorgeous rose bouquets and boutonnieres by Widmer Floral.

Nicole and Matt spend a lot of time out at Spindler Park, so it was an obvious choice of locations for portraits after leaving the homestead.

Since Matt is the tennis coach at Highland High School, of course we had to let these two serve up some love over on the tennis courts.

Tree seeds are such a cute idea for wedding favors. "Let love grow!"

A ping pong tournament (complete with trophies!) at a wedding reception? Yes, please! But the highlight of the reception was the phenomenal entertainment provided by the guys of Spanky Entertainment and their dueling pianos. They sure can play!

Just before the sun went down, we snuck away from the reception for a few final portraits of the evening.

Congratulations, Nicole and Matt!
