Kacey + Nick
I met these two about a year ago when we met for coffee to talk about their wedding. Right away I noticed that they were a fun, outgoing couple, they absolutely adored each other, Kacey had such a big, beautiful, contagious smile, and their wedding was going to be AMAZE. It was held at the BEAUTIFUL Grand Barn which is tucked way back in the middle of the woods of the Mohican State Park. I arrived and felt like I entered a fairy tale! It was right up my alley with huge trees and tons of greenery EVERYWHERE! Y Oh, my heart. I could not wait to get them out and around for their portraits! Just you wait and see all the awesome places we found :)
The barn itself was also so gorgeous. Kacey and the girls were getting ready up in the main loft and the guys were getting ready in a treehouse nearby. How cool is that?! Dave and I arrived in the afternoon and while I photographed Kacey's dress and pretty details along with her and her girls getting ready, Dave photographed Nick and his groomsmen getting ready. Everyone was so fun and sweet! The groomsmen were a trip! They were hilarious and had me laughing all day. Don't miss all the great photos I got of them dancing :)
After they put the flower crown on her, this little flower girl looked in the mirror and LOVED the way she looked! SO CUTE!!! (Don't we all secretly feel this way when wearing a flower crown??)
After Kacey was in her dress we went outside and took her bridal portraits and the bridesmaids photos. She was stunning! Her long lace dress and floral crown made me so happy. All the bridesmaids looked lovely as well. So much pretty!
I had so much fun shooting Nick and his groomsmen! They were so funny and such good sports despite the crazy heat we were enduring! I love a fun bridal party-it makes wedding days even that much more awesome :)
After portraits we got ready for the ceremony. It was held outside on the back patio of the grand barn. It was hot, but so so worth it! When Kacey came down the aisle Nick's reaction was so sweet. He was beaming ear to ear and he sighed so sweetly when he saw her :) They exchanged their own vows which is always so special to hear.
Right after the ceremony and family photos we took some fun shots of the bridal party then I was so excited to take their bride & groom portraits all around the amazing venue. Oh man, I could have photographed them for hours. Between the amazing scenery and super happy, in-love couple, it was pretty much perfect!
After pictures we headed back to the beautifully decorated barn for the reception. Everything from the toasts to the dancing was so fun to photograph. I especially loved capturing all the adorable kiddos and the hilarious groomsmen break it down on the dance floor :)
Kacey changed into a second dress and it was that awesome golden hour so we snuck away during the dancing for a few minutes to grab a few more portraits. Sunset photos always end up being some of my favorite images from wedding days! Golden hour is a glorious thing.
Congrats Kacey & Nick, I hope you are enjoying marriage and being newlyweds! It was an absolute pleasure to capture your wedding day!
