Saturday was just gorgeous, perfect weather, perfect setting and a fantastic couple!
Kayla was a stunning bride and the Stevens Estate has a remarkable bridal suite that makes for some great photo opportunities.
The bridal suite overlooks the grounds where the ceremony takes place, so it is easy to look out to see if everyone has arrived.
Kayla waits for Jeff. Seeing each other for the first time is always fun to set up, then we did the bridal party formals before the ceremony so the couple could enjoy some of their cocktail hour.
We had the bride, groom and bridal party make the trek to this GIANT, beautiful tree on the grounds. I have been here several times and this is the first time I have ever seen this tree.
Ok-cool shoes or what?
The ceremony starts-Kayla's brother, Zach (dark hair, in the back) did the brides hair AND sung during the ceremony and the reception! He did an amazing job and it added another personal touch to an already intimate wedding. Kayla's uncle performed the ceremony.
After the ceremony we photographed the couple and had SO much fun! These trees provided the perfect feel for "fairy tale" wedding portraits.
Kayla and Jeff wanted to be photographed against the brick wall before I even suggested it. LOVE THAT! You know if there is brick, I need to photograph someone on them!
Jeff got a bit jealous that Kayla was getting all the attention so . . . 🙂
Again, LOVE the shoes! Minolos and Chuck Taylors-perfect!
After the portraits, Kayla is bustled, hair redone and SHOES changed . . .
Congratulations Kayla and Jeff!
