Fall weddings always leaves me breathless and Tricia and Tor’s wedding was no exception. The lovely fall colors, a wonderful wedding, and a beautiful location, I mean… does it get any better then this? Now this wasn’t the first time I’ve photographed these two, they had a wonderful fall engagement shoot last year with their fur babies. Seriously though, does it get any cuter??
Lucky for everyone, they picked the most beautiful fall day for both shoots! Not only did we have a fantastic first look overlooking the Blue Mountain ridge on the eastern edge of the Appalachian Mountain range, but we got to get four-wheeled up the mountain to get some spectacular scenic shots as well! It’s not every day you have a bride and groom who are willing to four wheel up a mountain in full wedding garb! Also, special shoutout to the wonderful bridesmaid and driver, who helped us make all our mountain photos!
This kickass couple also added so many touches to this wedding to make it their own. The bride hand crocheted little pumpkins as guest table seatings and rocked some rockabilly shoes. The groom and groomsman rocked funny socks and an orange bow tie. These two had the ring bearer don a Star Wars themed ring pillow, their dogs and cats made for their cake topper, and awesome take-away custom chapsticks for their guests.
Following their first look and photos, these two got married at a beautiful outdoor ceremony at golden hour. With a waterfall and mountain range behind them, guests looked on as these two read their own vows, and got hitched right as the sun set. The cocktail hour followed with bonfires, human sized checkers, and lots of laughter with friends. As the night became chilly, everyone moved inside for the reception.
Dances were had and speeches were given. One of my favorite quotes was the MOH giving her speech and saying, “these two were such a perfect match, even Obi One Kenobi couldn’t have made it!” And it’s true, the love and affection these two, and their family and friends, have for one another is infectious. With each little photo session we snuck away for, these two kept each other, and me, laughing with their contagious happiness and love for one another! So here’s to that love and laughter for this wonderful couple for another 100 years!
Notice the ‘butt grab,’ these two had me laughing hard behind the camera!
