From gala apples to apple cider to the explosive entrance of the bride and groom at their reception all the way to the sparkler send off in the rain - Valoree and Taylor's outdoor wedding at County Line Orchard in Hobart did not disappoint.
Our day started off with plenty of laughs as I covered the bridal prep. Valoree and her girls were in great spirits (ahem), as they sipped champagne from their vanity glasses. I learned what 'chambong' means and a good time was had by all.
The County Line Orchard bridal suite is located within the grain silo and is the prefect location for getting into the dress. The wonderful light illuminating through the curtains really showed off Valoree's beauty as she posed in front of the large mirror.
I then took the girls out to the apple orchards for some fun wedding party photos. The guys arrived soon after and I did the same for them. Soon it would be ceremony time!!
The ceremony saw guests nestled between the apple orchards and fields of corn. The signature lemonade stand was available to quench one's thirst along with personalized fans to tame the summer heat. Little Taylor let everyone know that the bride would be walking down the aisle with her Uncle in a few moments.
The "tractor limousines" took guests back to the barn for cocktail hour as I took family pictures and then photos of the couple. Rain had been on and off all day, but that played to our favor with some great dramatic cloud cover as the newlyweds kissed in the apple fields.
Valoree and Taylor exploded out of the gate at introductions and then cut their cake. Apple cider was at every table and the couple had their very own Snapchat filter for tech savvy guests along with a whole bunch of rustic decor. The groom was a lucky man as the bride and her female friends serenaded him on the dance floor.
The rain was back for the sparkler send off, but nothing could deny the incredible spirits of Valoree and Taylor and their friends and family. What a great day and night it was!!
