It was a warm, humid day in late June on the bride's family farm. Moisture in the air caused threats of thunderstorms that could be seen in the distance but never got quite close enough to distract from the big day. Big white tents draped the yard with much needed shade as farm style tables were set with mason jar glasses, elegant flowers, and tealight candles.
The bride got ready with her maid of honor inside her house on the farm. Vanessa Villena Beauty Co. styled their hair and applied make-up to the girls as the DJ and caterer began setting up outside.
When it was time for the bride to get dressed, her mother came in and helped with the delicate lace covered button back gown.
The ceremony was a beautiful tribute to the love they share with one another. They pledged their forever devotion as friends and family looked on with love in their eyes. The bride and groom sealed the deal with their first kiss as husband and wife.
The day proceeded on with family portraits and wedding party photos while guests enjoyed cocktail hour and music by DJ Sergio's Surround Sound Entertainment. I was able to steal the couple away for a few shots to capture their true love for one another around the farm. I enjoy this time as it allows for the couple to breathe and take in each other's presence if only for a brief moment on their big day.
The couple and their bridal party were announced in to the reception where they shared their first dance. It was easy for all in attendance to see the love these two have for one another as smiles and laughs filled their faces.
A delicious buffet dinner was served by The G Seven Catering Company while DJ Sergio serenaded the guests with a few songs. When it was time to cut the cake, cupcakes crafted by the Dutch Kitchen Bake Shop & Deli were brought out creating a beautiful dessert display.
The rest of the evening was filled with dancing and laughs as guests celebrated the joining of two beautiful souls.
A big thank you to Amber & Dean Gould for trusting me with capturing your big day. It was an honor to be invited into your home and welcomed with open arms. I wish you both all the love and happiness in the world!
