Sweep her off her feet
This backyard wedding had me tearing up every 30 seconds. If you know me.. you know I cry at weddings. I was so excited when Chelsea & Brad decided to still say I do in June. I just adore this couple, they love each other sooooooo much. They put so much time and detail into making the their parents backyard look amazing. The florals lining the isle were filled with babies breathe, with rose petals sprinkled everywhere and smelled amazing.
When I saw Chelsea step out of the house in her dress, my instant thought was Brad is going to tear up when he sees how gorgeous his bride looks. Brads beautiful little girls came down the isle and he started to fill with emotion, and once he saw Chelsea, she tried to hold back her tears and he teared up with joy. There ceremony was perfect, they wrote each other beautiful vows, exchanged roses to themselves and their family, and sealed with a kiss. There wasn't a dry eye in that ceremony.
After some quite family photos we headed down to one of my favorite locations down by the river that hosts a beautiful tree lined dirt road, and a really old tree. Brad was soooo excited to be able to take a few wedding photos with his mustang. I always love adding personal touches to wedding photos as it truly makes it authentic to them.
I LOVED the lace detailing on the back of Chelsea's dress, she looked stunning!! And her veil, You know i'm a sucker for beautiful veil shots. Once we headed over the old tree I had a few of the groomsmen help me create some gorgeous veil toss shots. They forgot about the world for a little while and just enjoyed a lovely quite moment together while I ninjaed around capturing some natural moments. When we were all done shooting, Brad was a superhero for a couple of mins. To get to the old tree, we had quite a bit of rain the day before so there were some big puddles. Without even thinking he swept Chelsea off her feet and carried her over the puddles so that we could use that beautiful location. It was soo sweet, made me cry.... again... did I mention they made me tear up lol.
I can not wait to be able to capture them again this spring.
