072217-003072217-003 On a hot Saturday in July, my assistant, Jessica, and I headed to Glidden for Cale and Alyssa's wedding day.  As we arrived in the church to set up, we were immediately wowed by all of the details on the their welcome table.  My favorite thing was their "Unplugged Wedding" sign.  Love this!  I adore unplugged weddings, when guests are encouraged to be in the moment and celebrate with the couple.  Not only does that show respect for the beautiful ceremony, it also allows the professional photographers to create images of the ceremony where guests are focusing on the couple and being present with them.
