{Laurie & Andrew @ Stonebridge at The Lange Farm}

There is always so much excitement and a little bit of nerves as we photograph the wedding party getting ready.  Laurie's bridesmaids and maid of honor, her sister, were just the sweetest as they helped her get ready.  Her something old was her mom's beautiful pearl ring and she looked gorgeous in that lace gown.  The guys were eating chicken from Publix, just chillin when we got there:-)  Andrew gave them each a bottle of Johnny Walker, and their sky blue ties.  Andrew, his brother Donny, and their dad all had matching shoes.  There were a few tears as he read the card and opened the gift Laurie got him, hockey skates!  Their little niece and nephew were the cutest ring bearer and flower girl they had to get some photos with Uncle Andrew.  We setup their first look at Stonebridge at the Lange Farm, and Andrew was SO ready to see his bride.  I love how the nerves dissipate and those sweet few moments just the 2 of them are some of the best.  Their ceremony was decorated with lanterns and greenery under the big oak tree.  There was a special greenery wreath on one of the chairs in memory of their loved ones who couldn't be there in person.  There was string quartet playing as they walked down the aisle.  Sometimes people thing that first look before the ceremony takes away from that moment the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle, but it really doesn't I think it lets them soak in that moment even more because the nerves are gone.  It was a gorgeous evening for their guests to enjoy cocktail hour and little mini tomato soup and grilled cheese on the patio.  The light and dark blues with lots of greenery, lanterns, and blush roses set the tone for their romatic reception.  One of my favorite moments was the toast Andrew gave to Laurie.  He said he knew she was the one from the moment he say her at their apartment building where they met (we did their engagement photos there:-).  He fell immediately in love with her beauty and kindness.  You could feel how much Laurie and Andrew love each other, and their families, and how much they are loved by all!  Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Berecz!!!! xoxoxo

{Ashlee & Andrew @ Lange Farm}

Ashlee & Andrew and their entire bridal party all wore cowboy boots for their chic, country wedding.  The girls in lace, mint, dresses and the boys in gold vests with mint ties and jeans.  Their ceremony was under the big oak tree at Lange Farm, the first row was set with church pews for their family.  Each row had a little bit burlap with flowers and a horseshoe and there were crystal chandeliers hanging from the trees.  It was lovely and the perfect weather!  Ashlee loves horses and there are some very friendly ones and Lange Farm that love to be in photos:-) The Garden House was decorated in beautiful florals with stringed pearl accents on top of burlap and lace table runners. Their guests place cards had a horseshoe tied to them for the favor.  The sweets table was to die for!  All different flavors of cupcakes on layer wooden crates with a little cake for Ashlee & Andrew to cut. Ashlee is the youngest of 5 sisters, we actually did her sister Heather's wedding 4 years ago so it was so nice to see her and Eric again too!  Ashlee's dad gave a toast and had Ashlee cut a ribbon to symbolize that he's cutting the ties as she is the baby of the family.  This group certainly knows how to celebrate, it was a blast! Congrats Ashlee & Andrew!!!! xoxoxo
