Colorful + Emotional Fall Farm Wedding

First looks aren’t for every couple, but there’s something so sweet and special about having that first moment just between you and your beloved. This lucky Bride got not one, but two first looks—one with her father and one with her future husband while all four parents looked on. Surrounded by friends and family and beautiful, rustic décor, this special day was all about celebrating this couple’s love. Experience every special moment captured by Sheradee Hurst Photography in THE VAULT!

From Sheradee Hurst PhotographyThis was one of the most intentional wedding ceremonies I’ve ever photographed. Everything served a purpose, and every detail had a deep meaning. There was no unity candle or sand, instead the couple invited the groom’s grandfather up to say a private prayer with them. It was so touching for over 300 guests to bow their heads and pray for the marriage individually while his grandfather prayed so eloquently that the couple cried.

The groom and groomsmen didn’t wear shoes. The minister spoke during the ceremony of the many instances in the Bible where men remove their shoes when they are on holy ground. He said that this was holy ground, the uniting of two souls in marriage. The bride even took every detail and made it her own. From selecting a bodice and skirt from the same designer to create her own look for her gown to the flowers that she placed on the cake herself. The bride and her dad had a first look, and then all four parents looked on while the couple had their first look. Below are the bride’s comments on why she chose what she did to create a perfectly, lovely day. This wedding photographed so beautifully on film.

From The Bride… From the beginning, Connor and I’s number one priority was that we wanted our wedding to be FUN. We wanted people to have a good time and mean it, not feel the awkward and forced atmosphere that some weddings and receptions can have, we wanted relaxed. We knew we wanted to get married outside in the evening, because we both love and are inspired by nature. I love neutral colors that are found outside, and we really used those to create natural beauty around the party. We both have sort of an eclectic and different style, so we also wanted to incorporate that into the evening, hence the mismatching and random centerpieces of odds and ends we begged for, borrowed, and (maybe) stole from friends and family.

I think our wedding day was special because we really put our hearts into each and every detail. We didn’t obsess over everything of course, but we chose colors and decorations that we liked, and didn’t stress about whether or not they would necessarily go well together. But everything came together so nicely, and I really believe it’s because it was made up of all the things we like.

Connor and I have known each other since we were freshman in high school. We were always present in each other’s lives as friends until the summer after our freshman year of college. We were both home for the summer and began spending a lot of time together. And one day, things between us were just different. It’s like we had always been there for each other and had built this great friendship in preparation for the day when the time was right for us to be more than just friends. Since that summer we’ve spent every day in love. He really is my very best friend and true love.

From Emily Ann Hughes… Teresa and Andrew’s day was absolutely perfect! They had their wedding on a gorgeous fall evening, with the ceremony taking place in a beautiful, intimate garden. They planned so many dreamy details, while still being relaxed and focused on the celebration of their marriage. One of my favorite moments of the day was their first look, which was full of sweet emotions and neither could stop smiling.

Teresa had amazing design and thoughtful details, created by Haleigh with XO Events and Design. She made beautiful, hand lettered signs for the ceremony and reception, as well as stunning place settings and name cards of gold and blue.

The florals by Juniper Designs were to die for. She assembled the perfect, fall color palette with gorgeous autumn blooms. My favorite detail was a canopy of flowers draped over the arbor where Teresa and Andrew said ‘I do.’

Teresa and Andrew are one of the kindest, loving couples I have had the honor of working with. They are an inspiring couple and I am very thankful I was able to be their photographer. Watching them celebrate with all their loved ones was a beautiful event to witness and I couldn’t be happier to have captured this special day for them!

Vintage Inspired Family Style Rooftop Rehearsal Dinner

Behold the newest love of my life, this gallery. It’s just that ohmigoddess good. Because when you marry rooftop merriment with the artistic eye of Paper ‘N More and Amanda Watson Photographers, well it’s big-bang awesome. A wholesome and hearty celebration that is going to send any party-goer into a pretty lil’ pin-fest, and we’ve got it all in THE VAULT!

From Paper ‘N MoreOur styled shoot was inspired by the closeness of family and friends and by the honor that a bride & groom feel as they are surrounded by loved ones upon entering their big day. We wanted to incorporate small touches of gratitude throughout the dinner – handwritten notes from the bride, thoughtfully curated gift baskets (including items from our shop and other local retailers) and personal sentiments in each element of design. The tablescape was intended to create a feeling of warmth – with details including vintage floral china, family style dining, candlelight – all tied together with gorgeous green garland and blooms in shades of blush, deep pink and ivory. Guests enjoyed a sangria bar, custom yard games and an appetizer bar while mingling under the stars on the rooftop at PLENTY.
