I had done several events at this venue in the past but under new ownership, they renovated the facility perfectly! The main room for the indoor area has a rustic modern touch so any bride will be able to customize their visions to fit with the surroundings. They also did the most amazing job with the bridal house on the same property for the girls to stay in the night before and the couple to enjoy for their honeymoon night. It is designed perfectly for the ladies to have privacy with tall walls surrounding the perimeter, a salon area for getting ready, a nice open room for the bride to get into her dress and a couple bedrooms and kitchen. The house became a focal point for all wedding party photos since it was a rainy day.
In my experience, I have seen some crazy things happen to the weather on wedding days but never had I experienced such a crazy stormy day in June! Rain brings such romantic cozy feeling but who would think to have a back up plan? Thankfully due to the venue having the capacity to set up dinner inside, the ceremony site was tented and then reception was set for inside.
All worked out to be such a perfect day and Janae looked stunning. I was lucky to have such a gorgeous couple to photograph!
Janaes bouquet was designed with cream peonies, David Austin Garden roses, vendella roses, cream ranuculus, and cream spray roses. The bouquet handle was inspired by a pair of shoes Janae showed me.
|Janae is a hair dresser and having the salon set up right in the bridal suite was a great way to capture her in her own element.|
|One of my favorites of the day. Her dad walked in moments before the ceremony began and so sweetly to fight back the tears, Janae was trying to distract herself by asking her dad for a knuckle touch.|
|Simple candlescapes with the champagne dazzle linens were so elegant. Cream roses in rectangle vases were the perfect way to line the head table and creat a beautiful runner effect.|
|Working with these distressed frames, another favorite of the day for me.|
|Janae and Jason chose to do years for their tables numbers and gave a story to each year...cute and clever!|
