Tracey and Dave couldn’t have planned a more beautiful day to celebrate their love and commitment to one another. Their wedding was a perfect blend of elegance and romance mixed with laughter and joy. They truly have such a special and unique bond that is evident to anyone that knows this sweet couple. One of the best parts about being with Tracey and Dave on their wedding day was enjoying the company of their family and friends. Their bridal party especially were all so much fun, so helpful and an absolute joy to be around.
The morning started off with quite a bit of rain, but luckily tapered off just as I arrived at the lovely Estate at White Hall. Due to some unexpected wiggle room in the timeline and as bridesmaids were finishing up hair and makeup, Tracey and I had some time for bridal portraits. It was definitely my favorite start to a wedding day to just have quiet time with my bride, and her mother standing by to watch. The wedding day tends to go by so quickly, so there is so much benefit to allowing time within the day for these pre-ceremony portraits!
Aside from being lucky with the weather, we also were fortunate to avoid traffic on our 35 mile drive to the ceremony! Tracey and Dave opted not to do a first look but it was a sweet moment for them each to read a letter just minutes before the ceremony that they had written to each other. After the ceremony, and with luck on our side, we made it back safely and in a timely manner to the estate. Just minutes before our “Just Married” portraits were finished, the sun peeked out for the first time all day. It was incredible!!
Guest finished up cocktail hour and were escorted into the lofted barn for the reception. This was the first wedding to be help in this space and with the help of such talented vendors, this barn was completely transformed into the most whimsical and romantic reception space!! I only hope these pictures do it justice because it was absolutely spectacular!
Tracey and Dave, I could ramble on and on about what a beautiful day your wedding was and how grateful I am to have been there to capture all your special moments. Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness!!
