As soon as I heard that Adrienne was having her wedding at her childhood home, my heart swooned. I couldn't help but think about "Father of the Bride" -- one of my favorite movies of all time. Upon meeting her and her family, my heart swooned again. Adrienne is one of 8 kids, and the first daughter to get married. Her entire family was just lovely. And so was Matt's. Their wedding day was filled with so much love and emotion -- not to mention perfect weather, a beautiful ceremony, and a fabulous necklace that Adrienne's mom found at an antique store. Here are just a few favorites from their day. Enjoy!
I showed up to find the beautiful Adrienne getting her makeup done...
Then I photographed a few details. Her dress...
I love a statement necklace with a wedding gown!
I have no words.
She is just a beauty.
With the most beautiful heart.
Could these girls be any cuter?!!
This is Adrienne's youngest sister.
I adored her...and she obviously adored her big sister.
Cute kids everywhere!
How special to have these pictures with your siblings on your wedding day.
I don't normally blog a bunch of family portraits, but I so admire Adrienne's parents and they amazing job they have done raising 8 beautiful children!
Off to the church. Matt was beyond excited to see his bride.
The moment of anticipation.
And there she comes.
Here is a little glimpse of the ceremony.
It was beautiful.
And they're married!
While waiting for the wedding party to arrive, we did a few "traditional" portraits.
And then a few with the wedding party. Something classic.
Then it was time for some more modern images of A & M.
I love that their style is so timeless.
Cheers! Time to party!
The gorgeous setting.
A few more details...
And it was time for dinner -- and dessert!
During dinner, there were some amazing toasts, and Adrienne's little sister even recited a poem by E.E. Cummings.
Adrienne watched in complete wonder.
And so did Matt.
It. was. awesome.
The first dance.
Was followed by the father-daughter dance.
As a mom of 2 little girls, I can't help but get choked up during these. Especially when the emotion is so powerful.
I think Adrienne's mom would agree.
It was a perfect moment.
The dance floor was packed the rest of the night.
Adrienne and Matt floated around dancing with siblings, family, and friends...
And of course, each other!
Adrienne and Matt, thank you for allowing me to forever document your wedding day, and for making me feel so welcome. Thanks also to your beautiful families and friends! I'm so happy I could give you these memories. Congratulations! ~Kristine
