When I first got the news that I would be photographing this gorgeous brides wedding, I was especially excited being a fellow high school classmate of mine and all! Her amazing sister planned the most elegant outdoor wedding in a matter of weeks… yes you heard me WEEKS!! Having photographed weddings for ten long years already, and this being a first for me, I have to admit I was a little worried! However, my worries were soon put to bed after seeing how everything was pulled together and executed perfectly, no one would ever guess they planned this in such a short time!
Before watching these two exchanging vows and becoming husband and wife… we got to race around the course, carts full of people, to each beautiful photo location!
Most of the decor was hand made by family members, the base for the cake was cut and carved by the brides father (so talented!!) I have to give a shout out to the awesome crew that flipped the ceremony location into the reception area in less than an hour as well! Seeing the behind the scenes gave a unique view of how much dedication and teamwork it takes to get everything done perfectly!!
