Winter brides + grooms, today is all about you! We're over the moon to be sharing this epic green + gold winter wedding styled shoot from the hosts of the IGNITE Workshop, full of snowy landscapes, a donut bar and a duck. Yes, a duck! The six local photographers behind the IGNITE workshop dreamed up a way to combine an educational seminar and hands-on shooting, and the result... well, the photos speak for themselves. The inspiration here is endless, and proof that even in the midst of winter, there is endless beauty outdoors.Read More
Anytime a wedding starts out with an invitation as gorgeous as this, we know the rest is bound to be beautiful. We love everything about Amanda + Josh's wedding day from Alexandra Meseke ... from the flower arrangements made by her mom to the rustic chic reception decor, every photo is full of personality and love. Our favorite part? The breathtaking bridal portraits during "the most epic sunset of all time". Rain is supposedly good luck on your wedding day, but we're pretty sure a sunset like this means your marriage is truly something special.
From Alexandra: Amanda and Josh's Becker Farms Wedding was far far more than we could have ever possibly imagined it would be. I mean, first off, lets just talk for a second about how we had the most epic sunset of all time. If you follow us on Instagram you know that I said I'm pretty sure we'll never take photos like this ever again because the way the light was bouncing against the earth that evening was like something out of dream.
What makes a great wedding though is not the sunset, or the gorgeous wooden center pieces constructed by Amanda's dad, or the perfect flower arrangements DIY'd by Amanda and her mom, or the jaw dropping cathedral veil she wore . . . no it's not any of that . . . it's the infectious chemistry, affection, and love that Amanda and Josh shared. These two had an extra special kind of respect and adoration for one another. I mean, for reals, I'm talking Nicholas Sparks kind of stuff here people. Sorry, I'm going all corn ball on you, but when Josh looked at Amanda is was like when Noah looked at Allie(in The Notebook for those of you not getting the reference). It was like he would crawl to ends of the earth to keep her safe and protected. And holy moly do I love me summa that!! Have I mentioned I'm a hopeless romantic?! DUH!!
And of course behind every good man and every good woman, is an even more amazing family. And they made us feel like part of that family. So warm, and welcoming, and that means everything to us. We honestly just didn't want this night to end. Not just because of the love we were feeling, but the incredible party, made possible by the one and only DJ Naps. Seriously guys, he's the best of the best.
The celebrations don't need to end after the wedding, and we are completely smitten with the idea of a shoot to celebrate your anniversary We love this session at Oak Alley Farm from Jessica Husted Photography - a perfect anniversary tribute, full of bold colors and the most beautiful gold dress you've ever seen. And that cake?! Doesn't get any sweeter than that.
