...and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees, on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. - john lubbock

{cassie & bennett - part deux} 

You may remember Cassie and Bennett from a few posts back.  They had the super lovely backyard wedding back in June.  Well... now we would like to share the rest of their celebration.  They threw an amazing carnival-themed party complete with homemade ice cream, a vintage games area, adorable mismatched {and colorful} seating and one heck of a fun band!  I just love, love, love this family for so many reasons... their sweet hearts, their amazing sense of style and creativity, their oh, so fun personalities and their mad party-planning skills.

Amazing vendors include:

Planning: One Enchanted Evening

Caterer and Pies:  Simply Southern Catering

Tent and Rentals: All Occasions Party Rentals

Seating:  Something Borrowed Vintage Rentals

Invitations and Signage: Kate Moore Creative

Band: The Pop Rocks

 

 


















And just in case you missed their super-fun photobooth video... here it is again!!  Just too fun not to share twice.  ;)

Jessie & Craig {got hitched}

In honor of the blazin' hot weather... I thought I'd take this opportunity to cool down a bit with a couple of sweet winter weddings.  In all honesty, I waited and waited this "winter" for a chance to blog them while it was still cool outside, but it the crazy weather just jumped straight into spring in oh, February.  So... anyhow, Meet Jessie and Craig.  I think this was the only cold day we had all season long... but everything about their wedding was perfect... from her INSANELY beautiful dress to the flowers by the fabulous Sam Franklin.  And I love, love, love Maple Grove as always.

Wishin' on bones...

I cannot explain in words how lucky I feel to have gotten to shoot this wedding.  Hold on to your seats and grab a big ole cup o' joe, because I think this is the longest blog post I've ever done!  How do you narrow it down when everywhere you aim your camera is another amazing detail - puppies, horses, a gorgeous farm, crazy-beautiful flowers- another funny incident or another super sweet moment??  Well, you just don't.  I simply love this family so much and Sara and Jake are two of the most gracious people I've ever worked with.  They deserved the perfect day, and I have to say, it was pretty darn close to that!  So sit back, relax and enjoy the story of Sara and Jake...

I'm starting out with some pics from the rehearsal dinner... notice the finery they are sporting!  Jake and Sara asked folks to wear something they'd NEVER consider wearing to a wedding.  There was everything from PJs to Prom dresses...  And their sweet families toasted them until the whole room was just one big blubbery mess.  LOVE.

 

These next are a mix of the rehearsal and the morning of the wedding.  Notice the wishbone flag... more about that later...

 

 

oh, Lordy.  Those of you who really know me know I CANNOT resist doggies... much less puppies.  Sara's sis had just gotten this sweet baby and he showed up in {probably WAY TOO MANY} of the wedding pics...

 There is just something about being able to get ready at home.  Sara and her sis getting ready in their own bathroom with family wedding pics just outside the door.  Gotta love that.

Ok... gonna jump back a little here... these next few are from a bridal session we did at the farm a few weeks before the wedding...

And back to wedding day.  The boutonniere (and rest of the flowers) are by Samantha at Mulberries.  Girlfriend ROCKED it!!!!   Sara wanted cotton, so Hope (from Simply Southern Catering) brought her bags of it back from some family in Georgia (or was it Alabama - sorry if I messed that up Hope). 

 Sweet, sweet, sweet first look.  Holy moly, the way Jake looks at her is enough to send anyone into heart palpitations. 

ok... so, I think it may be time to share the story of the wishbone.  Back years and years ago, when Sara and Jake were not even really old enough to think about things like serious dating, they had a bit of a crush on one another.  Working at a camp, they were on the dishline together (how romantic, right?!?) and a wishbone showed up on a plate.  They each grabbed a side (see photo below for the reenactment) and Jake ended up with the bigger side.  It wasn't until years later that Jake got his wish of a date with Sara.  Little did he know, Sara had wished for the same. 

The reenactment was true to the original outcome...  hehehe.

Oh, my.  gotta love a bride who doesn't take herself too seriously.  ;)

Seriously, are these not the coolest flowers ever?  OMG.  I died a little.

Ok... so,  the ceremony.  I'm gonna put my photographer's high-hat for just a second...  I LOVE a ceremony where I have the ability to move around...  With the barn behind them, I could hide in the shadows while getting really unique shots and the ability to move around on both sides let me get soooo many great shots!! It doesn't hurt that they were so precious and full of love and emotion and even some laughter. 

Samantha did all of these too...  gah.  Amazing.  And the ladies at Enchanted Details worked soooo hard to make it all come together. 

I've never seen a cooler cake (or cakes). By sugarbuzz Bakers.

The food (Simply Southern catering) was delicious!!!  She made homemade pies with fresh peaches...  insanely delicious!  I'm pestering Hope to make me one!!!

Some of my favorite reception shots...  they had a Square Dance caller!  What a great idea for getting everyone involved.  Loved it.

And....  the "get-a-way..." which consisted of being pushed down the hill by the crowd when the car wouldn't start in the uber-cold weather.  Gah, what a send off!!  it was perfect!

Sara and Jake (and your families)  thank you, thank you, thank you for having me...  its weddings like yours that helps me keep huge amounts of passion for my job season after season. xoxo  -j
