When Mustang married Cowboy…

I love weddings!  And, while I am not a traditional wedding photographer, I have photographed quite a few smaller weddings where having just one person doing the shooting works.  So when Kim contacted me about the possibility of my being her wedding photographer….well….I jumped at the chance.Becci Hethcoat Photography-Wedding-Wheaton-23The first thing she told me was that this was not going to be any old ordinary wedding….it was going to be a biker wedding….no white dress, no tuxedos, no bridesmaids.  Sounds right up my alley!Becci Hethcoat Photography-Wedding-Wheaton-4  This wedding did not disappoint…it was full of powerful emotions, loving friends and family, and one of the sweetest love stories I have ever encountered.  Sadly, Kim was involved in a motorcycle accident just prior to the wedding date so she was in a sling for the ceremony and was in quite a bit of pain but you would never have known it to look at the photos.  All that shines through is her love for this man and her joy at finally becoming his wife.Becci Hethcoat Photography-Wedding-Wheaton-6Ron & Kim go way back…20 years ago they were actually engaged to each other.  Of course, not everything works out the way it is supposed to and they parted ways.
