On a gorgeous day at the beginning of August, the bride prepared for her big day in the Wright's Mill Farm bridal suite with her closest loved ones. Bracelets were clasped, heel straps were fastened, and one last spritz of hairspray applied in anticipation of the upcoming first look.
As the bride put on the finishing touches, the groom accompanied her sons on the rustic covered porch.
At last it was time for the first look. The bride made her way to her anxiously awaiting groom. As he turned around, they were both beaming with joy at the sight of one another.
Of course her sons were not too far behind, patiently waiting to give their mom a big hug.
Before the guests began to arrive, the bride & groom took some time for themselves to indulge in a moment of calmness together.
The bride's infectious smile could be seen from miles away as the two revelled in their happily ever after.
As the clock struck four guests began to arrive, hitching a ride on the horse drawn carriage to a beautiful ceremony site complete with a cascading waterfall.
Once all the guests were seated, the bride made her grand entrance escorted by her proud sons. She looked around in awe at all of her friends and family gathered to celebrate their love.
They shared their vows and exchanged their rings, sealing the deal with a kiss and loving embrace.
Back at the barn, guests congratulated the newly weds as we took group portraits and a few selfies with family and friends.
After cocktail hour, the couple made their big entrance as Mr. & Mrs. high-fiving, fist bumping, and dancing their way down the aisle.
Together they shared their first dance while guests looked on with smiled filled faces.
Before dinner was served, the best man made a speech that no one in attendance will soon forget.
The night continued on with a delicious dinner from the Wrights Mill Farm kitchen, stories shared among loved ones, and guests dancing the night away to the house DJs Mark & Pat.
Thank you so much to Carrie & Ron for trusting me to capture your special day. Many laughs were shared and the weather could not have been any nicer. I hope you have a life filled with love, laughter, and the occasional taped mouth when necessary haha!
