{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

{Denise & Bryan @ Lange Farm}

Denise got her girls the cutest shirts that said "Bride Tribe" in gold.  Denise's dad helped us while we were doing detail shots of her wedding dress, boots, and jewelry you can tell how much he just adores her.  She wore boots under her dress and her socks had bacon on them!:-) Bryan and the guys arrived all dapper in their derby hats and beige pants and suspenders. Denise and Bryan's son, Hayden, was so stinking cute in his mini suit and bow tie!  Denise did a first look with her dad, even I was a misty eyed while she gave him an embroidered handkerchief with a super sweet message on it.  She also had a special gift for Bryan’s mom.  As the ceremony stared on the back lawn, under the Joshua tree, the weather could not have been any more perfect. Hayden was a little shy coming down the aisle, but there was a huge "AWE" from the crowd as they read his sign, "Here comes Mommy"! As Denise and her Dad made their way toward Bryan you could tell he was holding back the tears. After a sweet ceremony by Rev. Rick, the coupled sealed their tear-filled vows with a kiss.  The sun was setting behind the trees and the paddocks and made for some gorgeous lighting during photos. The reception was held outside the blue barn under the strands of twinkling lights. The color scheme of blush and champagne looked gorgeous.. Inside the barn they had a wooden shelf that held cute little mason jars filled with different flavors of moonshine for the favor, it was a very popular shelf!  The Newlyweds shared a sweet first dance, Denise had a tear filled father/daughter dance, and for the mother/son dance…Bryan and his mom shared the dance floor with Denise and Hayden. Some of the guys snuck away to play cornhole on the custom Penn State boards Denise had made for Bryan as his wedding gift. They even lit up! We took them out for a few nighttime photos before the said their goodbyes and exited under a tunnel of bubbles into antique car. Congrats you guys, it was a pleasure spending the day with you! xoxo

{Alyssa & Christopher @ The Lange Farm}

Alyssa and CJ had a rustic chic styled wedding at the beautiful Lange Farm.  Their ceremony was set up under the beautiful sprawling oak tree in the front lawn. Crystal chandeliers hung from the branches and it was lined with white lanterns.  Their unity candle sat on a cute rustic table with two big lanterns next to it. Alyssa arrived in her dad's white Mustang, and CJ finally got to see his bride as it pulled away.  Their vows were sweet and sealed with a kiss as the new Mr. and Mrs!  Their reception was decorated with succulent and floral center pieces outside the barn, which was draped with market lights for a beautiful outdoor setting!  Congrats Alyssa and CJ it was amazing!! xoxox
