I met Holly & Corey over a year ago and knew in that moment that we were simply meant to be. She expressed how important photography was to her on her wedding day (I couldn’t blame her, ya know?) During their engagement session, when Holly didn’t hesitate to stand in the pouring rain (sans umbrella at one point) our ‘being meant to be’ was undeniable. Hair and makeup and you’re volunteering to STAND IN THE RAIN!!!!???? YES! Let’s do this!
Needless to say, plans don’t always go as we, well, plan for them to and over the course of a year and a half these 2 beautiful people welcomed a 3rd beautiful person into their lives that changed everything, in the most beautifully beautiful way. They decided to elope prior to their set wedding day but the one compromise Holly & Corey weren’t willing to make was having photographs to document their love and life as it is, at this time so that one day their little one(s??) can see how in love mommy and daddy truly were.
Holly, you are a radiant bride and your handsome groom fits you like the most perfect puzzle piece. Little did we all know that there was one tiny little piece missing, but he’s here now and you’re exactly where you’re meant to be…xoxo
Before life made other plans for these 2, Holly had actually picked out her gorgeous lace wedding gown from Hayden Olivia and Corey saw her for the first time in it here:
Brenda’s Cake Gallery made this perfect little naked cake to compliment the vintage flair of our overall shoot.
I adore these simple type font, tea stained, mock invites designed by Dry Ink Designs.
Deanna Christine of Adorned Studio stuck around for a second look. Holly wanted to try out a bolder eye with a soft and whimsy up-do. The look was paired with a GORGEOUS flower crown by Springvine Design.
The sun was perfect. So was this sweet table for 2 put together by Deedie Springer of Springvine Design. She used vintage pieces belonging to the mother of the bride, from the glasses & plates to the tablecloth and the table itself. The centerpiece was a stunner with hydrangeas, roses, dahlias, ranunculus, cosmos, astrantia, chocolate queen Ann’s lace, blue thistle, peppers, and mixed foraged greenery. And then the tables were accented with figs, pomegranates, and persimmons.
And below are some beautiful family photos from their day! Isn’t he the cutest!!! <3
Seeing these ideas come to life turned out more beautiful that we imagined:
