This was our first time shooting a wedding at The Estate at Farrington Lake since the new ownership took over. Let me tell you, if you haven’t checked out this venue for your wedding, you owe it to yourself to take the time to visit! We had the pleasure of working with Emily and Nick on an absolutely stunning fall day as they celebrated their marriage with family and friends. This is actually the second time this year we’ve had the pleasure of having Emily in front of the lens. She was a bridesmaid earlier this year for her friend Jenny! Not only did Jenny also stand with Emily on her big day, but Jenny’s husband Billy was chosen as the officiant for Emily and Nick’s ceremony.
Carrie and I began the day with Emily at her parent’s house before heading over to The Estate at Farrington Lake to meet up with the guys. The couple planned a bunch of time before the ceremony for the photos, so we were able to take our time and really have fun with the bridal party and couple! One of the things that stood out to us about The Estate was that there were a bunch of different areas where we could take the couple for photos and give them a completely different look. The pine groves were probably one of my favorites! After the photos, it was time for Billy to take over and perform the wedding ceremony…he was just a bit nervous but you’d never know it! As you can see below, Emily was a bundle of emotions during the ceremony and it was completely adorable! Emily and Nick chose to have a cocktail/buffet style wedding as they wanted to have the dance floor open most of the night as opposed to the normal wedding formalities. They even went as far as to forgo the traditional wedding cake in favor of scooping ice cream instead! Even with the packed dance floor and overall party vibe, we were able to find a quiet moment to take the couple outside for a quick minute for a romantic night portrait which ended up being one of my all time favorites…it’s the last photo in the series below!
