August 12, 2016 – Pergola Ceremony
We have been waiting a long time to share these photos with you! Kristen & Justin were one of the cutest couples we had last year and we think their pictures by Melissa DeLorme Photography, really captured their personalities. Kristen & Justin chose to do a first look at our Spring Garden before their ceremony. We love the Spring Garden for first looks because it offers a shaded, private area far away from guests and interruptions. It really gives couples that extra time to breathe and enjoy a few moments together. Kristen’s dress was stunning and her bouquet crafted by, Fiore Fine Flowers, was a favorite of the summer season. The couple took a moment to exchange gifts while at the Spring Garden, also.
After their first look, we headed to the Pergola to shoot some pre-ceremony photos. We love how Justin twirled Kristen around like a ballerina. You’ll notice they opted for freestanding umbrellas from L&L above their guest’s chairs, which provided additional shade for an August wedding. They also had fan programs and a bucket of OFF wipes for guests to utilize. With the help of the wonderful ladies of Knot Too Shabby Events, the ceremony went off without a hitch and Justin & Kristen could be found afterwards dancing away on our Oak Lawn.
We really enjoyed working with this team of vendors (and this couple!!) and hope you love these images as much as we do!
