Every bride comes with her own story – her own likes and expectations for her wedding day – her own family history and friend dynamics – and her own style and vision. That is as it should be, but I must say that Julia and Russell’s wedding likely gets top honors on being the most unique wedding that we had last year.
Billy and Lexy picked the very last Saturday of the year that we had available, but the fall colors could not have been any more pretty and the day could not have been any more warm and beautiful than if it were in mid-October instead of mid-November.
To decide to get married….and then to get married should be a solemn and serious decision and commitment. That said, there is every reason in the world to try to aim for a relaxed and laid back wedding day.
The wedding of Trishell and Jimmy was from that first weekend in November ’16. With the drought still in play – you wouldn’t know it to look at these pictures; the grass is green around the barn and there are colorful leaves at the feet of this bride and groom. It was indeed a gorgeous day and a beautiful wedding.
A Videographer might seem like a luxury easy enough to eliminate from your “Must Have” wedding list but a good one is worth their weight in gold. Wedding day comes finally after months of preparations….but once the day begins, it flies by in a flash. A talented photographer will not only capture the moments and create some amazing portraits for you to relish your entire life, but a videographer should actually accomplish something else. What – tell me what?
As I looked over the gallery from this wedding, I noticed that there were an abundance of photos showing Megan and Nate in a full throttle belly achin’ laugh. Who knew that a wedding day could be so much fun? It takes a special couple to be so at ease – so laid back to handle the chaos of the day – to have such a fun wedding day.
The wedding of Melody and Andy took on a different vibe from the get-go. Both had input on all aspects of their wedding day – which I admit isn’t typical but definitely not rare. It was easy to see that this wedding day would be planned different than most. Each vendor – each detail was so purposeful on what they wanted – a simple but very sophisticated event for a close knit group of family and friends.
Nothing says summer wedding like a batch of large golden sunflowers in your bouquet. The wedding of Phillip and Aubree had a wedding theme centered around these beautiful flowers and wow…..they do pack a punch into every single photo that they are in! These two lovebirds were just fun to watch. Young love – remember how you looked when you were so madly in love?…if you can’t quite remember….look at the expressions on this couples faces. Precious!
There was such attention given to every detail of this wedding…and it shows. Smart choice to allow your groomsmen to go jacket-less and to dress your girls in cute but comfortable bridesmaid dresses. The pretty deep royal blue dresses just served to showcase again these beautiful flowers.
Yep – some people are just born beautiful and Kara and Chris fit the bill on this statement. Maybe they were late bloomers though….. or quite possibly they were cutie-patooties from day one! But for the short period of time that I was around this couple, it was so amazing to feel like they were just as beautiful on the inside as the outside.
