We lucked out on gorgeous weather in the middle of May this year. Emily and Josh picked the PERFECT day to tie the knot!
I’m back at the exquisite Trinity Pines to capture the celebration of these two.
The nerves were full bore, so both were just about ready for their first look when I got there. I did sneak in some quick images with Emily getting ready.
Once ready, we stepped outside and found some shade to keep everyone away from the heat, hoping to get some of those nerves taken away! We started with Emily’s first look with her Dad.
And then we brought out Josh. Also note, I’m loving the kilts!
With first looks, it takes a lot of the pressure that makes people nervous away! It also helps with the timeline as we can get more portraits done before the ceremony, which gives you more time to party afterward! I always want to make sure that while we want to capture your entire wedding day, we don’t take you away from enjoying your wedding day either.
Plus, you get more hangout time with your wedding party. Even if that means you want to create a metal album cover with your groomsmen.
Trinity Pines has such a stunning backdrop for ceremonies!
While we got some family and wedding party images done before the ceremony, we always recommend to hang around after the ceremony to get in those important family members that came for the ceremony.
Look at those legs!
We rolled from the portraits, to dinner, and then speeches!
And more teary eye moments with the dances.
While the guests were hitting the dance floor, I snuck the couple out for some golden hour portraits along the property.
While we were out, the venue got it ready for the cake cutting, garter toss, shoe game and flower toss.
The rest of the night, the dance floor was packed, and everyone was having a great time! When it came time to leave, they all lined up to make sure Emily and Josh had a perfect ending to their night.
