Tami & Steven tied the knot this summer at the beautiful Celebration At The Gables among all of their family and friends!
When I first met up with these two and they started describing their style (modern rustic, chic and timeless), I couldn’t WAIT to capture their special day. Tami’s love of horses and Steven’s love of cars were both shown in their decor, mixed in with some elegance. Their deep reds and navy blues and complimented with dark greens, their wedding decor and theme came together flawlessly at this stunning venue!
The girls started the day in their private barn where they shared a champagne toast before excitedly getting into their dresses. Tami’s off-white, lace dress with custom sleeves, extended train and cathedral veil were exactly what dreams are made of.
Tami & Steven chose to do a first touch with letters read to each other before the ceremony. It was so heartfelt and touching and helped take the stress of the morning away for them before seeing each other for the first time that day when walking down the aisle to say their vows…..
It was a beautiful, sunny day for their ceremony on the lawn; their ceremony was filled with readings from loved ones, a unity cross, exchanging of vows and rings and the most amazing first kiss as husband and wife!
After the ceremony we took some time to capture the couple with their wedding party and families while their guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the barn.
Between family formals and wedding party photos we were able to sneak in some really fun photos of just Tami & Steven all over the property - how amazing is her veil?! His car was also the perfect spot to get some timeless images of these two, and her train was just asking me to do a flying/action shot of it (thanks to her bridesmaid for making it fly for me)!
The reception began with some of the best speeches I have ever heard from their friends and family. Immediately afterwards we had the perfect sunset for some evenings photos in the field alongside the reception hall! We finished off the night with dances, a bouquet toss and a garter toss - it was a night to remember!
This wedding was easily a highlight of my wedding season! Thanks to Gigi and the crew at Celebration At The Gables for making it such a beautiful, memorable day for all of us involved!
