This past Saturday I had the honor of photographing Seth and Grace’s wedding. The day was full of sunshine, laughter, and love. Before the wedding party came down the aisle, the bride and groom had created a slideshow of memories; it was so great to see everyone’s reactions to it. Grace’s brother, Dan, preformed the ceremony…it was so sweet to have some one so close to the couple preform the ceremony. The reception was a blast with a Michael Jackson reenactment, lots of dabbing, and a fun Horah. They finished off the night with a sparkler sendoff. Such a beautiful and love filled day!

I was so over the moon excited to take part in this styled shoot at Valley View Farms in Haydenville. Valley View is a brand new barn wedding venue and I can not tell you how beautiful and vintage it is. Sue thought of every detail when she designed this venue, from the custom bar to the gorgeous corrugated metal doors. Jackie from Events by Jackie M. designed not one but two stunning tablescapes. I love how she matched different colors and textures to create a romantic farm to table feel. The dress was from Bridal Heirlooms, it was to die for. I wanted to try it on, it was gorgeous with a beaded open back. Our model, Julia looked amazing in it; it was like this dress was made for her. Stacey from the Tangled Grapevine worked magic with florals, she even climbed up on a ladder and hung wreaths from the beams. I absolutely loooove her work, she is my favorite florist! She does things with flowers that I couldn’t even imagine. Kelly and her team from That girl did a flawless job with the hair and makeup. Michaela, from Jackson and Connor, came to the shoot and styled our groom. She even hemmed his pants on site, she is amazing! Michaels Rentals provided us with the awesome flatware and rentals, I absolutely adore their golden silverware….all the heart eyes! Tiffany from Tiffany Chapman Photography was the main photographer, and I am so thankful for her friendship and that she invited me to take part in this amazing shoot!
I felt like Kayla and Pat’s wedding day was something out of a fairy tale. When I first arrived at Kayla’s mom’s house for bride preparations, I was so excited to see rose petals lining the front walkway and cute signs out front of the door. The fact that it was 50 degrees in the middle of February was amazing too! Kayla and all of her bridesmaids were so relaxed and just enjoyed the morning and anticipated the ceremony. Kayla and Pat’s first look was adorable, Pat even shed some tears….I love a dramatic reaction from a groom!
I had never done a ceremony at the Riverview before, just receptions. But I loved the huge windows looking out over the river and the grand chandeliers. The ceremony was short and sweet and then the awesome staff transformed the room into a gorgeous reception area. I loved the purple centerpieces matched with the gold sequin table cloths. Everything was stunning!
Kayla and Pat’s first dance was so special, I loved the way they looked at each other. The night was full of dancing and laughter.
Congrats Pat and Kayla!
