Charming Countryside Barn Wedding

This was such a fairytale outdoor ceremony. The day could not have been more perfect for Haley and Jake - the sunlight, the temperature, and every little detail went just right. And their reception was full of so much laughter, tears, and love. They were surrounded by such an incredibly supportive community and family that I teared up a few times while taking pictures.



I absolutely love a bridesmaid first look, and these sweet ladies did not disappoint with their emotional and enthusiastic reactions!



And then, of course, we had the beautiful first look between the bride and the groom!



After the first look, we took a few minutes for bride and groom pictures! I just love all the greenery. And how romantic is that swing?!



And continuing the theme of delightful first looks, we had one more with the bride and her father!



After the bride and her father's first look, Haley and Jake went inside to hide away for the last few minutes before their ceremony started.



And finally, it was time for the beautiful sunlit ceremony!



Following the ceremony, it was time for family pictures and wedding party pictures!



Then we did some more beautiful bride and groom portraits. I am absolutely in love with the way these turned out. The sunlight, the greenery, the stunning couple ... I was absolutely in heaven!



The reception took place inside the charming Creekside Acres Event Barn. I loved all of the details and classy, rustic touches.



We started off the grand entrance with the ring bearer, who had more class than I'll ever have in my entire life! xD Then we moved on to the cake cutting and the emotional toasts.






Next, we had the bride and groom's sweet first dance under strings of twinkle lights.



And following that, the bride danced with her father, the groom danced with his mother and teared up, and then the bride danced with her mother!



And then the dance floor opened up, and the party began! Meanwhile, outside, the guests enjoyed the balmy evening weather and relaxed yard games.



While everyone was dancing, Haley's dad, Jake, and a group of the men stole away outside to smoke some celebratory cigars, and I got to take some fun backlit smoky shots.



We ended the evening with a glittering sparkler exit, and then I left the happy couple and their friends to dance the night away!
