This wedding has a great story behind it - probably the best we have shot so far. It is indeed a rockstar wedding. RKH Images is the staff photographer for Country Fest and Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin, and we spent a few weekends out there taking photos of concerts, bands, and more. You basically know what to expect when you are out there working, especially after doing it for so many years. This was new.
Karol and Colin were at Rock Fest to get married. Why? Avenged Sevenfold was playing and to quote Colin, "They always wanted Avenged Sevenfold to play their wedding." Well, mission accomplished. The couple made their way up from New Orleans to see the show and got married on one of the side stages. We originally were just running around shooting shows and caught sight of this. The two just happened to have a wedding photographer, as they hadn't hired one to come out with them.
They were dressed in both unconventional and equally fantastic clothing, dressed as a king and queen. Both wore crowns, while Colin wore large black boots and medieval wear and Karol wore a gorgeous white and pink gown made with feathers. Her dress matched her flowers and jewelry perfectly, popping in bright pink. The colors matched the couple so well, as they were so fun and doing exactly what they wanted to do for their big day.
The day came to a great end with Rock Fest giving the newlyweds a wedding gift of an Avenged Sevenfold meet and greet.
Thank you to all these people who made this an amazing day:
