Every year, for the past three years, on this same date, I always have the same issue when it comes to a feature..... I really should finally share my own wedding, it is our anniversary after all! Every year its the same thing, I keep the date open, I dont schedule anything, promise myself that I will whittle down the 300+ images that I swear are important to the feature, aka to me, and every year, I cant and then have to scramble last minute for something else. I woke up this morning and well here I am again, what to do.... finally I thought, enough is enough, I am going to share some of it, but more importantly share some funny tidbits that go along with our day intermixed with the images. We were really blessed in the weather department, with Hurricane Irene making its way up the coast, it literally arrived to us around 2am or on our wedding night. Its funny to look back at our wedding, the details, the decor.....

You gotta love a good ol'rustic country barn wedding and Florida wedding photographers Sarah & Ben brought us a true classic. Rachel Frazier & Michael Bundy scored a venue that truly fit their persona in the open air The Hitching Post Barn, a property which features large oaks & sweeping open fields which really allowed the couple to bring in their down home feel. Wanting to make things as personally as possible, Rachel & her mom hand made each detail from bunting to heart garland, even the flowers were hand done by Rachel's cousin. Working with a mixed palette of corals & blue, the couple crafted a unique setting that truly popped against their more natural settings. The result was an energy charged barn wedding with bold hues & personal touches that shined through!

When your family's private farm is a secret garden filled with caterpillars, ponds, weeping willows & gobs upon gobs of gorgeous little flowers everywhere, why on earth would you get married anywhere else right!? North Carolina wedding photographer Connection Photography had the good fortune of being on hand for Sarah & Jesse Yandle's working farm wedding filled with magical places & special little animals at every turn. Combine their creative shooting style with touches like tin baskets filled with apples, old school milking canisters, canoes brimming with beverages & a country craving wedding party and you have the makings for the first real wedding of the season that is going to have you praying summer gets here like yesterday!
Points for creativity & inspiration right out of the gate! Jessica & Andrew Seraphin have a special place in their heart for the mountainous regions of the west coast, Yosemite National Park to be precise. As they begin the planning process their first inclination was to have a destination wedding among the towering peaks of the Rockies but soon realized doing so would eliminate some of their guest lists, a tender concern for them. Instead of feeling defeated, Jessica & Andrew infused the spirit, essence, & country like style of Yosemite into their Massachusetts fete, ultimate landing on the The Red Lion Inn which was the perfect place to bring it all to life! Covet worthy wedding photographer Zac Wolf Photography, carefully captured each memory, even artfully snapping moments that had a real Rocky Mountain feel bringing the couple's infusion of Yosemite full circle! Keeping true to the outdoorsy country spirit, flowers were stems of wildflower like blooms, thick cut wood slices graced the tables while bandannas served as napkins & homemade apple butter gifts that Jessica herself, along with her bridesmaids, crafted for the guests! Andrew certainly got into his country like role though giving his attire a chic New England twist in a well fitted suit finished with a sizable western-style silver belt buckle! If you didn't know that the couple were married just outside of Boston, you would easily think that their fete took place someplace out west with a mountain range not far behind. Jessica & Andrew's day is a gorgeous reminder that sometimes you don't have to go to the destination, you can bring it to you!
