I’m so excited to share this wedding with all of you! Katie & James had such a beautiful wedding, on the first day of fall! This was my first time shooting at Willowfield Lavender Farm and it absolutely did not disappoint.
When I met Katie, I instantly noticed that she had the most stunning smile! I walked up to check on her to see how she was doing before the ceremony started, and she seemed so calm and peaceful, but you could definitely tell how excited she was!
The gorgeous red details of this wedding were the absolute perfect colors for fall. Deep red photographs so well, and my favorite part was the florals! The ceremony aisles were decked out in the loveliest floral arraignments.
When I met James for the first time, he was so kind and has such a gentle demeanor. His presence has a very calming air, which made me feel so comfortable around him and Katie.
As the ceremony started, watching Katie walk down the aisle was so memorable, because you could tell it was hitting her at once and she became emotional (which made me become emotional too). It’s undeniable how much they love each other. The intimate ceremony was officiated by Katie’s longtime pastor, who delivered such a beautiful prayer for lifelong love and happiness to Katie & James.
The bridal portraits were so much fun because everyone was so light-hearted and made each other laugh, any time I asked for the “fake” laugh, they laughed for real! But one of my favorite times during the day was the portraits with just James & Katie. We got so many beautiful portraits, the lighting and scenery, plus true connection between the newlyweds, made for some magical photographs.
Once the reception started, I quickly learned how much Katie’s bridesmaids were so much fun! Katie’s sister was DEDICATED to dancing the night away!
As it was getting later in the evening, the clouds finally parted to give way to a sunset that left the sky in what seemed like a million colors.
I am yet again, blessed with the most incredible couples to capture the biggest days of their lives. Thank you Katie & James for letting me be a part of yours.
