So how often do you have jousting bride’s at a wedding?! For me, it was definitely a first and I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph Kelly and Sarah’s wedding! Not only did these two throw a kick ass wedding, but they also made almost all the decorations! From a popcorn bar, to ring boxes, homemade wedding benches (that were signed by guests!), and even a cake piñata, these two made it all by hand! Not only that but Kelly had a custom Celtic knot belt made for Sarah. And that pearl necklace Sarah wore!? Kelly made it from her late grandma’s pearls. Quite the beautiful touch right?
What a day this was, it started with a sage blessing to cleanse the space beforehand and then the ceremony began. All their children and their niece and nephew surrounded Sarah as she walked down the aisle to her beaming bride. The ceremony began, and they rock, paper, scissored to see who would give their vows first. Following the vows, they joined their family together by giving all their boys handmade bracelets to match their own. With a kiss, these two sealed their union!
After the ceremony and family photos, we headed back to their pavilion to ‘joust a bride’ where guests could joust a bride in their bouncy joust house! Seriously, is that not the coolest thing ever? Their guests got to enjoy a popcorn bar, some amazing bbq, a delicious cupcake tower, a photo booth with a green screen where they got to pick what background they got put on, and they even had homemade ice cream, made on-site complete with a toppings bar! What an amazing day it was! The guests wrapped up the wedding with the smashing of a homemade 3-tier cake piñata; now that’s what I call a cake smash lol! So let’s cheers to this happy couple, I wish them nothing but happiness! Without further ado, Kelly and Sarah’s wedding:
