From Bridget Rochelle Photography… This gorgeous wedding is one of a kind! The groom is an arborist so the whole wedding was themed around trees which is perfect inspiration for the fall! Everything from centerpieces, venue location, to table names was tree-centered. The bride was absolutely stunning and she let the bridesmaids choose their own green dress in a few different shades.

We took some pictures of the girls and boys separately before the ceremony by taking a golf cart out to a beautiful bridge. Afterwards we had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony where the bride and groom planted a tree together symbolizing their growing relationship. Afterwards we had an amazing reception where they used an axe to cut the cake instead of a knife.

The whole day was stylized by Aubrey’s mother Sandy Duncan. She designed and created the centerpieces. She even did all of the flowers. She is extremely talented which makes this DIY wedding even more amazing!
