Mr & Mrs Lavender

Last month I had the privilege of capturing the memories of the beautiful wedding joining Jake & Sam as husband and wife.  They were married by the grooms great uncle in his church surrounded by their closest family and friends.  Carson & Jonah were pulled down the aisle by the groom’s sister Sarah in a wagon wrapped in ribbon.  When Samantha was escorted down the aisle by her father she was shedding tears of joy and happiness & Jake was smiling from ear to ear.  Their sweet little boy Carson sat so patiently on his aunts lap watching his mommy and daddy be joined in marriage.

Sam wore the prettiest lace covered gown with jeweled belt and shoes that were to die for!!!  I mean my feet bled looking at them but they where amazing!!!  She carried a beautiful bouquet of lavender roses and lilies.  Jake wore a suit of his own with a tie that matched Sam’s flowers.   Carson was dressed so cute with little suspenders and converse shoes!

After grabbing some formal family portraits at the church we headed to The Riverside Golf Club in Mason for the reception that was full of bouquet tosses, smiles, hugs, & delicious cake.

The wedding went perfect and flowed so smooth thanks to the awesome timeline made by Jake’s sister Sarah.  Seriously, best coordinator ever!   Most importantly, they are now Mr & Mrs Lavender!!

Mr & Mrs Miller

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.

Mr & Mrs Stowers ~WV Family Farm Wedding

12 Days ago Chad and Angela became husband and wife surrounded by family and friends on their family farm.  I loved being able to capture their day and learn more about their story.

Chad’s family farm and Angela’s family farm are right next to each other.  The pair were married in the middle at a gorgeous spot decorated with hay bale seats, a flower filled blue mason jar aisle and the most gorgeous arch ever which was built by the groom!  Angela waited her turn to walk down the aisle behind a set of doors at the wood line that her dad built for her.  One of my top favorite moments of a wedding day is seeing the faces on the bride and groom when they see each other for the first time.  Chad and Angela opted not to do a “first look” so when she walked down the aisle and Chad laid his eyes on his bride and she to him …..seriously….. the smiles…. the very huge smiles…..  the look of absolute true love!!

After they sealed their vows with their first kiss as husband and wife we began formal portraits.  I could’ve photographed these two for hours!  Gorgeous Couple in a Gorgeous Field, a photographers dream.   During one of the poses I was going to have them look at each other for one and then kiss in the next one, well all of sudden Chad gives Angela the sweetest kiss and then looks at me and says “oh I’m so sorry she’s so beautiful I just couldn’t stop myself.”  This is a man whole heartedly smitten and in love with his new wife!  They both glowed all day!

After their formals we headed down the hill to their reception by the fishing pond where everyone dined on barbecue, cake and pastries from Spring Hill Bakery and visited amongst each other.

Thank you Mr & Mrs Stowers for having me capture your wedding day.  You were so much fun to work with and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
