Photography is one of those beautiful jobs where we get to meet amazing brides and grooms and all of their wonderful families and share a wonderful moment with them! Kelly and Nicks wedding was no exception! We felt like part of the family by the end of it, everyone was so kind and friendly and fun! We couldn’t have asked for a better day! I knew right away when I met Kelly that her wedding would be right up my alley, her style and sense of self was very similar to mine and the wedding day that did not disapoint.
Her amazing team of coordinators at Simply Sweet Weddings and Events https://www.facebook.com/simplysweetweddings did an incredible job of setting up this fun, pumpkin themed fall wedding. Dispite 80 mile an hour winds, everything looked so beautiful and thank goodness those pumpkins were heavy!
Nick was a calm, excited groom to be. We just knew when he first saw Kelly he would cry, and what better time to do that then our first look in the middle of the olive groves.
I can’t lie we all started to choke up during this sweet perfect moment between the bride and groom.
I was so excited to revisit the Highland Springs Resort and shoot their wedding there, it is such a beautiful venue with some amazing locations to shoot at.
If you love lavender fields and olive groves this is the spot for you, let me tell you every spot we visited was amazing.
We had so much fun photographing this wild bunch of groomsmen and brides maids. It makes our job so easy when you have such gorgeous couples and people who really like to have fun. WHen I asked the groomsmen to skip towards me for a silly photo they didn’t even hesitate, locked arms and started skipping for me!
When Kelly walked down the isle against 80 mile an hour winds, we all worried she may be blown away. BUt with the support of her father and step dad she stood tall and gracefully glided down the isle towards her own prince charming. There was not a dry eye in the entire crowd through this ceremony, it was so beautiful.
The wedding reception was held in an outdoor tent on the Highland Springs Resort property. The tables and decorations were very fall festive, pumpkins and candles were set out with lovely sprigs and flowers. The linens and place settings were even on theme. We had so much fun with all the reception detail photos!
