Sarah and Steve married on a beautiful summer day amongst their closest family and friends. I loved how laid back and happy these two were and how much fun their friends in the wedding party were. Someone was always laughing or cracking jokes. It was definitely a fun day for all! Sarah looked so gorgeous on her wedding day. It was a dream photographing her! She and her bridesmaids all got ready in the church and as most people know, churches don’t always make the best backdrops for getting ready photos. But we did some rearranging of some furniture and shot against this salmon colored wall by the window and voila! Some of my most favorite getting ready images ever!
I loved the heels on Sarah’s Ferragamo heels. These are definitely a pair that she’ll be rocking after the wedding!
Then it was time for the first look. I love their genuine expressions of surprise and joy!
They chose to take all their portraits off site in this beautiful park. Loved the rows of trees, the light filtering through the leaves and how we basically had the place to ourselves. I shot a mix of both film and digital at their wedding.
Sarah and Steve make such a beautiful couple! Not only are they both ridiculously good looking, they’re so sweet with each other. It’s like two like hearted people met when they found each other.
The girls all looked gorgeous in their deep purple one shoulder gowns.
The guys looked pretty handsome too!
Love this candid shot Connie got of the wedding party while I was doing portraits.
Sarah and Steve had a traditional church wedding ceremony. Their Mothers partook in the candle lighting ceremony together, they had a talented friend sing a song, and Sarah’s little sister played the violin. I loved how personal and special these moments were. Here’s Steve and his groomsmen entering the church.
Love this one that Connie captured!
After the ceremony Sarah removed her veil and donned this beautiful hair flower. It really transformed her look and added a nice touch for the reception to follow!
The grand entrance is always a fun moment to capture. Everyone’s super happy and excited to be celebrating the marriage of their loved one!
Towards the tail end of the day I dragged the girls out for some portraits in the golden light. We didn’t have anywhere else to really go besides the parking lot, but beautiful light trumps location every time. I love these so much!
