Bridget and Logan’s wedding day was nothing short of a fairytale. The venue, the dress, the florals, the guests and most importantly, the couple all are what made this day so very special. Not only is Mount Ida Farm absolutely breathtaking this time of year but it’s just as beautiful in the rain. What especially makes this wedding venue so unique is that they offer weekend rentals at one of their several historic manors on their 5,000 acre property. It was awesome arriving to the Mount Ida Manor and seeing the groomsmen playing a game of basketball, the girls upstairs getting hair and makeup done and spouses and girlfriends/boyfriends of the wedding party all gathered around the kitchen and outdoor deck. It was truly a destination wedding!
Since the forecast wasn’t calling for rain until later in the evening, we luckily were able to get outside for some pre-ceremony portraits and the views and fall foliage didn’t disappoint! Bridget looked absolutely stunning in her dress and had just the sweetest group of girlfriends standing by her side. Logan and his groomsmen were so laid back and and easy-going. Large bridal parties can sometimes be intimating but when they are all kind, welcoming and have a great sense of humor it makes the day that much more fun! An added bonus is when all 22 of them are willing to step out into the pouring rain for portraits! I loved this group!
The rain did force us to move their outdoor ceremony inside but it created such an intimate setting for Bridget and Logan to be surrounded by all their closest friends and family as they promised forever to each other. Their extra special wedding guest was their adorable 9 month old baby boy, Brody. I have to admit it brought tears to my eyes to see Logan and Bridget holding hands, exchanging vows with their happy little boy sitting on his grandma’s lap just quietly watching. The Andrew Family have such a beautiful and bright future ahead of them and I have a full and grateful heart that I got to play a small role in such a special occasion!
