Nick and I worked together recently for about a year. While he moved on to another job a few months ago, we have continued to keep in touch, and when he asked me to be his wedding photographer, I wasn’t about to turn it down! He and Jenifer are high school sweethearts, and were married at The Glasgow Farm this past weekend. Melodie and I arrived an hour early to start photographing the venue and her bridal details. This working farm venue was just awesome! The big house had so many awesome rustic details. When Jenifer arrived the bridesmaids got ready, and Jenifer looked gorgeous in her dress :). The ceremony was held in a loft above the reception space. The lights along the barn ceiling made for some great bokeh shots!
One of my favorite parts of this wedding was the Dove Release. The dove release symbolizes two people getting married because doves mate for life and when released into the wild they don’t know what the future holds, but they have an natural navigation ability to always be able to find their way home. I also love birds, and the idea of having them at a wedding is awesome! I love how laid back this wedding was. Nick has always been a laid back guy, so I expected nothing less ;). The timeline was very relaxed, and I found it actually made it easier to not worry about the time. Not having to keep to a strict schedule meant I could take longer for portraits without feeling rushed ;). It also meant that I could suggest sunset photos to Jeinfer and Nick towards the end of the wedding. We ended up not taking too many portraits after the ceremony because we figured why not just do them when the light is good! I’m glad we did. The farm had this little trail leading into the woods which was super colorful because of autumn. I loved how much fun these two were to photograph! You can see how comfortable they are around one another and how much they love to be together :).
I had a great time hanging out with some of my current and former co workers. Seeing them in a non-work setting was fun! I got a photo of Dan taking a selfie of himself with a goat, and a shot of Ed checking out Nick’s drone. Yes, you remember the drone from their engagement shoot! Of course Nick brought it to the wedding, and his friends made a little video of the reception! Most importantly, this wedding was catered by the one and only Chipotle. How awesome is it that they had Chipotle cater their wedding?? Melodie and I certainly enjoyed that! I loved how this wedding was more of an afternoon wedding, because most of the reception events were over just in time for sunset, so doing portraits then was perfectly timed, and Melodie and I weren’t driving home at midnight trying not to fall asleep in the car! Haha, I was grateful since I had work the next day. Oh the life of people with two jobs :P.
Lastly, I’d like to thank all the vendors that participated in making this wedding a success, but most of all to my second shooter Melodie Ann Photography! You’ll see some of her shots in this post!
