Brique 1887 Wedding in Hastings Nebraska

Haley and Parker truly got the best of both worlds for their Hastings Nebraska Wedding at the Brique 1887. They were surrounded by so much love from all of their friends and family on their wedding day. The day started out with a traditional church ceremony outside of Hastings and then their reception was held at the beautiful Brique 1887 in Hastings Nebraska.

The night ended with all their friends smoking cigars outside under the stars. The following day we did something a bit untraditional and got all dressed up again and had the best day after session. Which I highly recommend to all couples! For their day after session we went and took photos in a field near where Haley grew up and close buy to where they live. Haley and Parker met in high school and have been dating for a few years. It was such an honor to shoot their wedding and I had so much fun authentically documenting their day from start to finish. They had full wedding day coverage which I highly recommend to ensure no moment goes undocumented. Let’s plan your dream Hastings Nebraska Wedding at Brique 1887!

Best Time To Get Married At The Brique 1887

The best time to get married at Brique 1887 in Hastings, Nebraska can depend on your overall personal preference! I always recommend during the spring or fall season and booking early! The weather during these times is mild, making it comfortable for indoor and outdoor photos. Additionally, the venue’s exposed brick walls and vintage chandeliers create a warm and charming ambiance that complements the colors and themes of the spring and fall season.

The venue’s location in downtown Hastings also adds to the charm of the season, with the town’s trees and flowers blooming in the springtime and changing leaves in the fall. However, Brique 1887 offers year-round accommodations and can be a beautiful backdrop for weddings in any season. Always keep in mind that summer weddings may be more popular and therefore could require booking the venue further in advance! I always suggest booking your photographer and venue at the same time to get the perfect date!

Day After Wedding Photos Session In Hastings Nebraska

I highly recommend doing a day after session! Haley and Parker got a perfect fall day to do their day after session near Hastings Nebraska with sunny skies and 50 degree weather. During a day after session all the wedding day stress is gone and you are just able to enjoy taking photos together. Also, having a day after session allows you to enjoy your entire wedding day and not take any time away from being with your people. Unlike traditional sunset photos on your wedding day, we can have time to do a full session rather than just a quick 20 minutes outside your reception area! It’s not for everyone but you should totally consider!

Here’s a newsflash you can take photos wherever you want, so if you are getting married relatively close to a cool location, let’s drive there and get the best wedding photos! This location could be the beach, mountains, open field, or just somewhere special to you guys as a couple.

Haley and Parker did their day after session in a field nearby their home in Nebraska. Haley grew up playing in this field and now took her wedding photos there. I’m a huge fan of taking photos in big open fields with sunny skies and rolling hills. There is just something about tall fall grass that inspires my art. For their day after shoot we stayed until blue hour, and the last bit of light. These photos are some of my favorite Nebraska wedding photos and I might be a little bias because even though I do find by self traveling a lot, I really love capturing local weddings in small town Nebraska.
