Kelsey’s Grandfather pulled me aside with tears in his eyes. He was wearing sunglasses, but you could see the glossiness of tears through the tint. Kelsey grew up coming to this house and telling him that she was going to get married there. Under that tree shaped like a heart in his field.
And that is precisely what she did.
Kelsey got ready in the upstairs of her Grandparents house surrounded by her bridesmaids, mom, and lots of cousins, which mad the room a little awkward to fit into. Although it did make it plenty of fun.
The boys got ready out in the shop, which also had a bar, couches, and nice places to relax before the ceremony.
We did the first look with her Father first.
And then we went and got Tyler.
The ceremony was of course in front of the tree. Her Father walked her down the aisle and then stepped into his place as the officiant.
After the ceremony, we meandered through the property that Kelsey loved so much and captured their couples images. These pictures are some of my favorites to take at each wedding. I get to bring my landscape photography experience and wrap their venue around them. Especially because this place is so unique to these two.
There was a dancefloor setup on the big open plaza. There were the first dances with Bride and Groom and of course, the parents.
The Grooms family is from Turkey, so they included some of the traditions. One of them was to pin gold onto a red ribbon was worn by the bride.
I had an amazing time working with these two, and I wish them so much happiness!
