Bennett Bunn Plantation | Sarah & Nick | October 22nd, 2016
What a beautiful FALL wedding day Sarah and Nick had!!!! It was our FIRST wedding of the season that FELT actually like fall – with cooler temperatures, warm–yellow sunshine, red bridesmaids dresses, orange and red florals, a fire crackling at the reception, apple pie cupcakes to eat, and even apple cider to sip on!!! It was a really WINDY day, so everyone was great sports outside all day taking portraits.
We had been looking forward to this wedding for a LONG time, simply for the fact that Sarah and Nick are GREAT people!!! From the first time we met them, I felt an instant friendship, and whenever I’m around Sarah, I’m ALWAYS laughing. Nick and Sarah are genuinely NICE and such thoughtful people – and were so considerate towards Phillip and I not only BEFORE their wedding day, but ON their special day too!
Sarah had a really gorgeous group of bridesmaids, and they toughed it out in gusting winds. (Secret: they were smart enough to wear LEGGINGS under their dresses! GENIUS!!!!!) Phillip enjoyed the group of guys – they were a fun bunch and even hopped in the back of Phillip’s truck to be taken around the venue!
We were so excited that Nick & Sarah wanted to have a FIRST LOOK! We were able to shoot ALL the bridal party portraits pre-ceremony, and even some bride/groom portraits too! It really helped to save time since the sun went down quickly after the ceremony!
After a really sweet and personal ceremony, we took Sarah and Nick out for some sunset bride/groom photos since they were officially married! The wind was still gusty, so we got some spectacular shots of Sarah’s loooooooong veil blowing in the wind! These two were easy-going – even though Sarah had so many goosebumps from being cold!!!!
DJ Eddie gave everyone a fun night dancing at the reception, and we LOVED their crowd just having a blast! The guests were treated to cake and cupcakes, and then Sarah and Nick ran through an awesome glow stick exit to their decorated truck! It was a perfect ending to such a wonderful day.
We love you guys, and are so blessed to have been a part of your day!!!!! We hope you’ll have a FANTASTIC time in Ireland (we’re so jealous!) and hope you enjoy this SNEAK PEEK!
