Ashley and Wes are the type of couple that you know instantly how genuine and likeable they are. I don’t know their history, their love story, where they went to college….but I saw them interacting with their family and friends, and even more so, how they interacted with each other…always with such kindness and sincerity.
Wedding days are to be glorious but they are busy, often hectic, with a timeline and a task list a mile long. Photos, photos – stand here – look this a way – put your hand over her shoulder – another picture with more family – etc. etc. and under these conditions, your character is revealed. I swear this couple had smiles on their faces all day.
In early spring, there is obviously less blooming on the farm. Trees are budding out with foliage and the grass is a rich green color so picking brightly colored bridesmaids dresses is such a smart choice. It adds this great pop of color which looks stunning beside her bridal gown.
Ashley’s bouquet was stunning – a work of art weaving an assortment of stunning roses with what looks like a few beloved peonies plus interesting infusion of textures all in a cascading effect that deserves a picture like this.
I love these buckshot boutonnieres!
The magic duo of Kenney Photography never fails to produce a stunning gallery of photos for their brides here at the farm.
The stage is a perfect place for a head table and with the embellished wagon wheel chandelier, the long curtains that frame the bride & groom, the row of farm tables, the layers of greenery and flowers adorning the tables, the mismatch vintage chairs, and the little accents of blue – this all beckons for a bridal party to come complete the picture.
This is a great presentation of a beautiful cake.
And….if these were not enough….the Kenneys created some masterpieces below.
Ashley and her girls had fun primping and prepping in the farmhouse. We decided upon forever seems quite appropriate.
Look at all of that delicious lace!……………..and turquoise!
This old windmill is from my husband’s grandfather’s farm from Cassopolis, Michigan – we are so honored to have it here on our farm – even if it isn’t in the air (yet).
What a good looking group of gents – don’t you agree?
and pretty maids in a row……
and look at this happy batch of kids (of the human kind as well as the goat/caprine kind)!
Even when the Kenney duo sneaks off into the back lot where the farm junk is stashed – these photos turn out so unique.
I think this couple has a bright future….they look so deliriously happy and oh so content just being together. Their journey has begun.
Congratulations Ashley and Wes – thanks for being part of our farm history!
