Being a part of Hannah and Ryan's beautiful backyard wedding was amazing! This young couple spent the day surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones as they celebrated the beginning of their new life together, and I was blessed to have been chosen to capture it all.
Hannah was such a beautiful bride and glowed the entire day - I think she's smiling in just about every single image! And that's exactly as it should be...she's literally the picture of love. :)
Their ceremony was full of humorous moments, and I especially appreciated 'The Office' references made not only by the Groom, but by the Pastor as well - classic! A great sense of humor is important in any successful marriage, and these two were definitely able to share a good laugh together.
Hannah's parents and friends put so much effort into transforming their large backyard into an elegant wedding setting...even building a spacious new wood deck extending into the treeline. The perfect location for both the ceremony, and the dancing. The date was actually doubly celebratory as it was also Hannah's mom's birthday!
Ryan chose to skip the 'first look' scenario, and saved his first sight of Hannah for the moment she was walking down the aisle - so romantic! It was fun watching Hannah slip around trying to avoid Ryan and the Groomsmen before their pictures together.
I was also super blessed to have the amazingly talented Ariella of Ariella Noelle Photography on hand as my second shooter. I enjoy working with her immensely, and this was actually our second wedding together. Hannah's hair and makeup were done by the equally amazingly talented Deborah Lobe.
Here are just a few highlights from wedding details, all the way through to a sparkler exit!
