Ashley & Victor’s wedding day started with one of those constant misty mornings that turned into a pretty steady rain by the afternoon. When I stepped inside the Glen Manor House Ashley was all smiles saying she had embraced the rain, which is the best possible way to be on your wedding day. But just before we stepped outside for family photos we were checking the satellite on a weather app and we could finally see a break in the storm…and it stopped! We were so lucky the rain held off for us to be able to use the beautiful grounds of the Glen Manor House—from the rolling lawns and mature gardens, to the architectural arches and stone patios, all the way down to the dock on the ocean…we played everywhere.

I cannot begin to say how much I adore these two. They smile and laugh together and every photo I took exuded elegance and a timeless kind of romance that made me smile. The girls were gorgeous in their bright pops of pink, the guys were dapper in traditional black tuxes, and the bouquets were mixes of hydrangeas, peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus bringing in perfect pops of white and raspberry to offset the sophisticated gold accents in the reception rooms. So classic! I know these photos are being very patiently awaited so let me just get right to them!

Favorite Things:
• Ashley’s gorgeous Martina Liana illusion neckline gown was to die for…those buttons gah!
• They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony, always a favorite of mine (yay for the rain stopping!)
• First look down an elegant staircase…yes please!

Okay, I’m going to be honest here and tell you that everything about an apple farm makes me happy and excited. I am a true autumn girl and have such fond memories of picking apples in the fall. What I never realized is how absolutely gorgeous an apple orchard can be in the spring! Add to that the perfect timing for the full apple bloom, a gorgeous couple, and perfectly overcast light and I am in photographer heaven!

Ashley and Matt were married a few weeks back on a day a bit similar to today. It was overcast and called for rain but it held off until after the photos and the outdoor ceremony, talk about perfect luck. Ashley and Matt are the kind of people you just enjoy talking to. They are kind, relaxed, smart, and entirely easy going. Their whole day was perfectly planned and had lots of personal touches—they had a bunch of friends standing up with them but not a traditional wedding party, Ashley had friends helping with the hair and makeup, she made all of the centerpieces, they had an apple cider donut cake tower (yumm), and they got married at a farm that Matt grew up working on. And not only that, but Matt’s childhood friend now owns and runs the Red Apple Farm and he also officiated the ceremony…seriously awesome personal touches. I have so much more to share so let’s get to the photos!

Favorite Things:

• Ashley was copying down her vows the morning of the wedding and it was such a great little moment while getting ready
• I love an open-back lace gown, so classic and beautiful
• Matt was not to be outdone in his navy striped custom made suit…so dapper!
• A fully blooming apple orchard may be my new favorite new wedding venue. :)
