I just couldn’t go into this long holiday weekend without sharing some beautiful images from a recent wedding that took place on a lovely, sunny Cinco de Mayo at the historic Morris-Butler House. Anne and Nick had been counting down the days until they exchanged “I do’s” in front of their closest friends and family members. Frankly, I have to admit I was counting right along with them! Ever since their engagement session, I knew their wedding day was going to be one amazing event! With their style and love of art and color, they put so much into each and every detail and moment of the day, making it a fun, unique, and festive celebration! Love it! Much more to come soon, but for now, let’s take a quick look at some bridal details and moments leading up to the ceremony!
These gorgeous bracelets were given to Anne by her dear friend and bridesmaid, Jenny.
Anne got this fabulous vintage purse from Nick’s Mom – love the intricate beading!
And the gold accents paired perfectly with those bracelets!
I always love receiving the wedding invitations from my couples… and this one especially rocked my socks off since they used some engagement images!
Such a beautiful wedding dress!
The sparkling brooch was a Christmas gift from the bride’s sister and Matron of Honor, Audrey.
I’m absolutely smitten with the Morris-Butler House! And on their wedding day, it was particularly beautiful with blue skies and puffy white clouds.
Anne was an excited bride! She could not stop smiling!
While Anne and her bridesmaids finished getting ready, it was time to get some portraits of the groom.
At the rehearsal dinner the night before, Anne and Nick surprised each other with wedding gifts.
He loved this stylish chapeau Anne picked out for him.
Anne!!!!! You were such a beautiful bride!
It was time for Anne and Nick’s First Look! I always love this time of the wedding day! When I meet with couples, I give them options, and encourage them to decide what is right for them. I’m always so glad when couples do opt to see each other prior to the ceremony. You’ll see why in just a moment…
The father of the bride escorts her to meet Nick.
As I was saying above, a First Look gives the couple more time for portraits together, and allows for images that wouldn’t be possible when greeting each other at the end of the aisle during the ceremony. Plus, all family photos can be taken before the ceremony as well, leaving more time for even more bride and groom and bridal party portraits. Yay!
Such a gentleman! Nick helps his soon-to-be wife down the steps.
I’ll end this post with the sneak peek that I posted the day after their wedding on facebook
Stay tuned for more coming soon!
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend!
