Carrie & Jake
Saint Lawrence Spirits Chateau & Lucky Star Ranch Wedding
When we arrived at the Chateau to begin getting ready photos with Carrie I could tell almost instantly that it was going to be a fabulous day! She greeted me with a warm hug and a huge smile. Throughout the morning, with everyone getting ready, her mom arriving, the flowers being delivered and seeing her dad she couldn’t help but tear up at each new moment. When I asked her how she felt all she could say was that she had been dreaming of this day her whole life and couldn’t believe it was here!
It was clear that Jake felt the same when I met up with him right before the ceremony. He couldn’t wait to see his stunning bride and did his best to hold back the happiest tears as she walked gracefully toward him with her dad by her side down the aisle.
Their guests threw birdseed in celebration just after they said their vows and it was off to finish up portraits before the party really started! At Lucky Star Ranch the wedding party made their grand entrance with lots of dancing and some pretty amazing moves. Carrie and Jake shared their first dance while singing their hearts out to each other to a wonderful country song that made me tear up. I’ve said it many times but thank goodness I have a camera in front of my face for most of the day!
The rest of the evening was filled with some fabulous dance moves, celebratory drinks, and apple crisp that smelled so amazing it was intoxicating! I didn’t want to leave but rather hope on the dance floor for a song or two before heading home. Then again I was so excited to begin editing some portraits I couldn’t wait to get home!
It was a pure honor to have photographed this special day for Carrie, Jake and their loved ones. I watched them throughout the day and you could see the love in their eyes for one another and how close their families were. They are one of the sweetest couples with so much in common for a life filled with adventure. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Ball, I couldn’t be happier for you both!
