The love these two share literally jumps off the page — Both have grins on their faces practically the size of Lehmann Mansion, the charming location of their wedding, and they are just bursting with happiness. The portraits of the bride and groom literally make my heart skip a beat. Gosh, their love is so irresistible in these pictures that I’ve totally forgotten to gush about their actually wedding! Well, it is the perfect bridal white inspired affair, with lots of simple, elegant touches. The full gallery of images is a must, and many thanks to Kristin La Voie Photography for capturing it all!
From Kristin La Voie Photography… Dina and Skyler’s wedding at Lehmann Mansion was a culmination of many things: pure love and happiness between the couple, romance, a touch of vintage splendor, beautiful colors and lots of family togetherness and emotion. Dina’s mother, who helped plan the wedding with her daughter, recently passed away, but was still very much there in spirit. Dina and her family chose to incorporate many things that made even me feel like she was with us, though we’ve never met. We started the day with an intimate first look between Dina and her father before he helped with the last few buttons of her dress. Her brothers and bridesmaids joined to partake in a special toast with wine her mother chose the day she helped Dina pick out her wedding dress. We continued to a special first look between Skyler and Dina in the courtyard of the mansion, with family and friends peeking through the windows. After capturing gorgeous shots of the couple with Grandpa’s old car and in a secluded forest, we continued with fun wedding party photos around the grounds before the unforgettable ceremony. Dina and her father walked down the aisle with a single yellow rose in memory of her mother, which was placed on the chair she would have sat at the end of the aisle. A special communion was shared between Skyler and Dina before their first kiss sealing the deal. The celebration continued inside a beautiful tent with a stunning display of white in flowers, linens and beads. Another tear-jerking moment left not one single dry eye in the house when Dina’s father made a toast before dinner. The entire day was truly magical, inspiring and heartfelt. I will remember Dina and Skyler’s day forever.
