Brittany and Casey tied the knot in October last year at The Westin Columbus and held their reception at Via Vecchia Winery. As you may know already, we love wineries and vineyards because there’s something strangely romantic about them that we just can’t put our finger on.
This beautiful wedding has so many things which we love! The wine red colour scheme, the flower crown, their dog getting involved, the first look, the old fashioned bus, succulents, calligraphy, oh be still our beating hearts!

Kristi and David had a wedding which was focused on love and family – they said their vows at a family owned historic barn and homestead overlooking fields of with classic Indiana views. Their wedding was intimate and emotional from the first look of dad and daughter to the vows and first dances.
We love the white and navy colour scheme, the comfy Tom’s bridal shoes, all the gorgeous calligraphy details from the table seating chart, the signs, the drop heart guest book, oh there are just so many pretty details which make this wedding beautiful!

Chelsea and Travis had a small elopement ceremony in Charleston, South Carolina. Unfortunately, Hurricane Matthew came along and they were forced to hold their elopement ceremony in Asheville, North Carolina instead. Because of the change in circumstances the couple didn’t get many photographs of their ceremony and celebrations with friends and family, but they planned to meet the photographer at Stone Mountain in Georgia to snap some beautiful images of the sweet couple together.
They explored a few popular spots around the park together, and we are so in love with these images. The happy couple look very much in love, these images are so full of gorgeous light, beautiful autumn colors, and pure romance. Travis serves in the US Army so his cute American flag bow tie was the perfect addition to their session. Chelsea’s gown had a stunningly unique back and style to it, and she wore it flawlessly. She also brought along a beautiful peacock inspired shawl to wear once the sun dipped below the sunset.

Colleen had said that if she was going to have this beautiful dress then she was going to go all out and she did not disappoint!
The couple had originally planned with their photographer that they wanted to do these trash the dress photos at sunset the night after their wedding but other events happened so they decided to wake up early the next morning at sunrise and it definitely looks worth it! The sun was perfect and amazingly their family woke up with them at 6am to watch Sean and Colleen run into the ocean.
Before they started they both looked back at the photographer quickly and as soon as they were told to go, they went sprinting into the ocean with a crash and both looked at each other and just laughed. It looks stunning!
Thank you so much to Hannah Nicole Photography for sharing these fantastically fun images with us!
Kathryn and Steve knew each other throughout school in their small Connecticut town, but it wasn’t until Kathryn’s friend broke the girl code and told Steve that she had a crush on him, that they started dating. This cute couple has a mutual love for Harry Potter, they know just the right thing to say to make each other laugh, and their sweet home is filled with warmth and world’s cutest pets – we love this engagement shoot!
Kathryn was determined to have a spring outdoor photoshoot, but every time they tried it poured! Finally on the third reschedule, it still poured, but they managed to get beautiful images at a local farm who let them use their greenhouse! Thank you to Kelly F. Peterson Photography for sharing these images which just prove how stunning a shoot can be even if it’s raining outside!
Katie said that when it came to Matthews proposal, “I already knew Matt had the ring, the question was when he was going to do it. We started planning a trip, he was really excited about it – I just knew this would be when we got engaged. I started buying all sorts of outfits to prepare for “the trip” (if you know me, this doesn’t surprise you at all). One busy workday in July, my boss and I decided to cook a terribly complicated recipe that took ALL. DAY. LONG. I was ill as a hornet when I got home, not to mention covered in sweat and flour. I noticed he had cleaned the house top to bottom, plus had flowers and extra chairs around the dining room table. I also saw my grandmother driving by, and thought, “my goodness, she’s nosey!” Clearly I had no idea what was going on..or I would have showered. Long story short, he popped the question right in our kitchen that we had spent the last 6 months remodeling together, making plans for our future. Sure, I big fancy trip would have been fun, but it was and still is so special to me that our home was where he chose to propose. After I said yes, both our families joined us for champagne and dinner… which was the terribly complicated dish I mentioned earlier that turned out to be terribly salty and disgusting”
This lovely couple were engaged for nine months before tying the knot and they wouldn’t have wanted to wait any longer! Katie loved having a morning wedding and brunch reception and we love all of the photos from this gorgeous wedding day!
In the afternoon the couple wanted the guests to do as they pleased so they had several rented bikes, people lounged by the pool, they enjoyed afternoon tea, etc. and then they all met up late afternoon for croquet on the front lawn!
This beautifully rustic, family-farm wedding joined Lindsey (first daughter of football player and former University of Georgia head football coach Ray Goff) and Aaron, who also coaches football now on a high school level.
Players and uniform ushered while humorous game day memorabilia added to the decor, but the true theme came together in swathes of sunflowers, handmade backyard games, and good ol’ Southern barbecue and sweet tea – the exquisite details being lovingly prepared by family and friends.
The day was marked with many joyful tears and a sense of real old-fashioned innocence and celebration. Best of all, at “you may now kiss your bride,” Lindsey and Aaron shared their very first kiss… EVER! They then “made up for lost time,” enjoying many more kisses and playful fun in their portraits around the farm’s scenic locations.
This styled shoot was something new and intimate, an elegant classic wedding with a circle seating candlelit ceremony. Showcasing a color palette of gold, champagne, blush, and eggplant, with a gorgeous blush dress with dainty details. The circle ceremony seating and dimmed lights with candles are not very common lighting for ceremonies and although we’re huge lovers of light, we do like the dimmer intimate feel of this part of the shoot. Gold is so in right now, and the styled shoot team wanted to showcase gold accents, including gold flatware and the beautiful white opera style chairs with a white lacquer table.

Danielle and Daniel met each other at a car show, Dan’s z28 is pretty old school, while Danielle has a fiery orange Camaro with the new, sleek body style. The wedding ceremony and reception at The Farm on The Ridge in Hooversville was a great pick for these two because it’s a little bit rustic, a little bit whimsical, and simply beautiful and serene – until the muscle cars arrived, that is!
We love the unique ways that Danielle and Daniel incorporated their love of cars into the decor for their big day. They traveled to Carlisle over the summer so that they could scavenge classic car graveyards in the hopes of finding unique emblems from many vintage cars to decorate each of the tables at their wedding reception.
Many of the elements in this barn-style reception venue were made by either Danielle or those close to her. Her husband Daniel cut log slices where floral arrangements sat, and he also hollowed out and lacquered a huge tree stump burned with their names for all of their wedding cards!

Rachel said that when Ryan proposed, “I was eating pizza in my pajamas and he went to take the dog for a walk (we lived in an apartment so we had to walk him every morning and before bed) and came back inside and had changed into dress clothes (I didn’t notice until he actually had the ring on my finger though because… stuffed crust pizza and Grey’s Anatomy.) He said, “Hey I got Tucky a new collar, why don’t you look at it?” And I hear something clinking around on the collar but Tucky was ready for his supper (he gets fed right after his walks) and wouldn’t come to me. So Ryan had to chase him down (I still didn’t notice he had changed LOL) and put him in my lap and all I saw was a ring on the collar and started crying. Ryan had to put Tucky down to make sure I was ok, and then took the ring off the collar along with a heart shaped dog tag that said “Will you marry me?” and asked if it was a yes and put the ring on my finger.”
Rachel and Ryan Southerlyn Farms wedding is simply beautiful, there was lovely lighting throughout the day due to slightly overcast weather, the gorgeous bride and groom were very much in love, the venue looks amazing, and you can feel the emotion through the photographs!
This wasn’t just another “rustic” barn wedding, it was simple, refreshing and pretty stunning. From the bride and her bridesmaids wearing Keds to the cute gypsophila halo hairpieces, simple and stunning was definitely this couples motto for their wedding day.
When Rachel was getting ready and putting her gown on, everyone was told to leave the room other than her mother. The bride wanted to make this particular part of the day extra special for just her mother and her – we think that’s a really sweet idea. Then she did a reveal to her bridesmaids, where there were happy tears and emotions from everyone. To top it all off, Rachel’s dog from her childhood, Tucky, was a big part
Not only did Rachel do a ‘first look’ with her bridesmaids, but she also did one with Ryan as well. As you know by now, we’re big fans of having a first look so there’s some alone time before all the emotions of the ceremony itself. This first look was filled with hugs, kisses, happiness, and their feelings for each other are so clear in these images.Throughout the whole day, between the bustling around and poses, he was constantly pulling Rachel aside for hugs and quiet kisses. He was so calm and easy to work with.
The photographer, Jessica Hunt, says that throughout the whole day, between the bustling around and poses, Ryan was constantly pulling Rachel aside for hugs and sneaky kisses. Super cute!
We love dogs, like oh my gosh aren’t they just adorable, we want to adopt so many and live on a farm in the middle of nowhere so they have room to run free… so we adore that Rachel’s dog from her childhood, Tucky, was a big part of her wedding day. Since Tucky is so important to her, he actually walked with the ring bearers in the ceremony!
