What do you get when the weather is breezy perfection?
There’s an intimate ceremony on an apple orchard hilltop?
Everyone is super laid-back yet had one of the most energetic dance-floors I’ve been on yet?
A father’s speech to his daughter that WAS the best one I’ve heard?
A venue that I’d be more than happy to shoot at every day of my life?
A bride & groom that were the life of their own party?
You’d get…THIS WEDDING!
Guys…Without sounding super hippy, there was an energy about this wedding. You could feel it! Between the most heart-felt speeches (that already have me all sorts of nostalgic about my own kids future wedding. (Good things he’s only 9months old) (:
The dance floor that was less about epic dance moves (though they weren’t too shabby!) but more so an energetic celebration of being with everyone you love in one spot.
I don’t often comment on the food but for one…dinner was wrapped in bacon. Like lots of bacon. (: And it was so tender I literally cut it with a butter knife.
It was the perfect combination of an awesome venue and an epic bride & groom! Ryan & Danielle, you guys are awesome!! From peacing out on dinner for a bit to try my photo experiments (which ended up being some of my favorites by the way) to being the core of what is no doubt a legendary wedding to every person that was there. Absolutely LOVED your wedding!! They key was YOUR wedding. Wouldn’t have been the same had it been with anyone else! Thank you for allowing me to capture it!
