I have been looking forward to Whitney and Colby's wedding day ever since I first met this sweet couple in person almost a year ago at their engagement session! They are both so fun-loving, easy going, romantic, and creative, an absolute joy to work with. It's easy to see why they had one of the biggest (and super awesome!) bridal parties I've photographed this year! Life has taken them both to live in North Carolina, but they planned an elegant country wedding close to home in Lancaster, Ohio, surrounded by their family and friends.
Shooting at Blessings Farmstead was such a treat because of all the options it offers for photos. In addition to the sweeping fields and beautiful, historic barn, there is also an adorable old schoolhouse on the property that featured in some of my favorite photos from the day. Whitney and Colby had a cozy ceremony in the lower part of the barn, and then danced the night away with their friends and family in the reception space above. Elegance and detail shone through every square inch -- words do not do it justice. You can bet I was taking notes from Whitney on how to plan a memorable day!
Whitney and Colby picked the perfect palette for an early fall wedding -- navy, burgundy, and accents of gold. I was in heaven photographing all of their details, including wood cufflinks in the shape of Ohio for Colby, and a pair of sparkly gold heels for Whitney. But the sweetest thing was getting to capture the emotions and once-in-a-lifetime moments that were experienced on this most happy of days.
Whitney and Colby, I am so honored to have had the opportunity to get to know you and celebrate your love for each other, and I hope you enjoy reliving your incredible wedding day over and over again through these images! Congratulations!!
