Luke and Laura’s winter wedding was so awesome to shoot. I’ve known Laura since we were both in the third grade, and we went to school together all growing up. Laura has such a unique style and glamour. I couldn’t wait to see how she and Luke chose to celebrate; their wedding was filled with greenery, light, and Laura’s grandmother’s fur shawl for a touch of familial warmth.
Laura’s engagement ring is pearl and so stunning. Her bridesmaids wore short green dresses in various styles and hues that looked adorable together, and Luke’s boutonniere was made from greenery and matched Laura’s bouquet. She got ready in the Sunday school room of the Episcopal church she grew up in, so we made awesome use of the small colorful chairs for pictures.
Even more awesome? After the wedding, the recessional continued out the doors of the church and it was snowing! Birdseed was
shoved down Luke’s suit lovingly tossed and then we got some gorgeous wedding snow pictures. Seriously. Snowflakes in eyelashes. Can’t get much better than that.
Luke and Laura then moved the party and had a renovated barn reception. There were lights and tulle covering the rafters, giant heaters to combat the snowy cold, and delicious food and wine. It was a wonderful end to a joyous country wedding.
