My internet has given me fits this week. I really wanted to post about these love birds on Valentines Day but technology just wasn’t having it.
Jason & Catherine were married in beautiful warmly lit ceremony last October in Eleanor. Catherine was a very hands on bride & left no detail undone. She made the centerpieces, the arch, dried the flowers, gathered up family quilts and oil lamps for the tables, made a cute barbecue sign for the food and Jason made the perfect cake stand. The details were so beautiful, warm and cozy.
Catherine was a bride after my heart! She wanted a “first look” & she had an “unplugged wedding”!!! I believe first looks are great for taking off pressure from the bride and groom on the wedding day. It’s gives them a chance to be alone, well as alone as you can be with me snapping your reactions, and take in the moments about to happen and shed a few tears if you wish without being in front of your guests. I think I could & I might, do a whole blog about unplugged weddings. Bride and Grooms have put so much in to planning their special day that they want you to be in the moment with them! Not on your phone trying to take photos. That’s what they pay me for. When they look back at their photos they want to see your faces watching them take this step in life, not your phone or iPad hiding it.
Catherine’s son gave her hand in marriage, and they said their vows while each of their children smiled with pride as the two families became one.
The guests dined on freshly made pulled pork barbecue from Jason’s business, Mountain Que. It was de-lish ya’ll need to stop and try it sometime!
It was a great wedding day and I was so happy to capture it for them. You can view all of their photos by clicking their name, Mr & Mrs Miller & a few of my favorites are below.
Are you newly engaged? Still searching for your wedding photographer? I would love to chat with you!
