I was recently called upon to photograph a very intimate wedding in a private residence at the end of our winter season. I quickly learned that the event may have been small in size, but the amount of love shared within the walls of that home on that day was tremendous.
Before we get to the wedding and because the beautiful people are waiting to see their images, I will share here a look at some of the details of the day.
As I arrived, I was greeted with nothing but generosity and pure joy. The most beautiful lace covered gown was waiting patiently for its bride.
There were vibrant flowers waiting to fill her hands with the softness of petals and the boldness of color.
And most importantly, a beautiful young lady charged with the task of safely delivering the rings to the officiant during the upcoming ceremony.
The home was already filling with beloved guests, including these two special ladies who have been best friends for all of the days they remember. They were very proud of their role in bringing all of the wonderful people together for this day.
The details for the day were simply elegant and made the home into the perfect place for the celebration of their love.
Lyal and Erin were surrounded by love which is indeed everything needed. I cannot wait to share the rest of their special day soon.
The recent wedding of Sarah and Philip began in the morning hours at the Something Blueberry Farm with so many perfect details, smiles and plenty of sunshine.
The beautiful lace covered dress was waiting in the dressing room, carefully ready for Sarah.
The shoes were perfect for the outdoor, country wedding.
And the rings sparkled in the bright and welcome sunlight.
The flowers were ready to be held.
And so many perfect things were waiting…
…Waiting for the day to begin, including a beautiful bride.
I love sharing these quiet moments before the crowds arrive and the music begins. These minutes of excited calm before the vows and the food are so special. Images from the rest of the day will be here soon.
I’m always honored when one of the young people in my world wants me to photograph a senior picture session.
In thinking back, I’m pretty sure I met this beautiful and extremely talented young lady while she was holding a chicken.
I have seen her teach young people anatomy and I have seen her win trophies for her knowledge and her skills. She’s able to soothe an upset turkey to the point of falling asleep in her arms. Her pup adores her and sits as well as stays when asked for as long as asked.
She is a teen leader and an inspiration to many young people who look up to her for guidance.
She has a way with animals for certain and she can bend the strings of a cello to fill the air with the most beautiful sounds.
Talented – that is no doubt. Beautiful, no question.
Congratulations, Lacey, on your senior year. Your talents have helped me out many times! Please find the rest of your online album here.
I’ve been busy booking things for the future and am all sorts of excited about the weddings coming up for the season! I will be in barns and beautiful halls and fabulous train depots and out in fields with some of the most beautiful people I have met.
I have also been busy enjoying the fresh spring air and daydreaming about all of the beautiful flowers that will soon be blooming…
So, with brides, weddings and flowers on my mind, I thought I would post a small sample of some pictures of past wedding bouquets in hopes of sharing spring and maybe inspiring a bride or two with these artistic creations. Enjoy!
