He unwraps the note he handwrote for this day and begins to speak, all eyes turn to him. She looks to her left, over to her new groom as he is holding back tears. She reaches for his hand, and together they share a moment that will last a lifetime. The bride’s father shares the story of how he and his wife met the groom and how they formed an inseparable bond. Together they have endured hard times and in which grew as a family. One that can never be separated. As we listened to Liz’s father talk about Matt, we could feel the love that Liz’s family has for Matt & his siblings. Every wedding, we get to witness each family’s closeness, hearing about some of the tough times & a lot of the funny times. Still, most importantly, we are welcomed into their world! This is something we will never take for granted and is something we cherish so deeply about each wedding!
Liz & Matt were wed surrounded by their family in the backyard of Liz’s childhood home. In this barn, she & her cousins played as children. It was dripping in greenery & florals by floral designer, Fetching Flora. Turning a place of childhood merriment into a backyard wedding dream. Liz, with her father, approached Matt from around the house, wearing her stunning gown from Renaissance Bridals glowing with radiance with help from her dream hair & makeup team & some of our favorites. Whitney Burkhart & Talitha Collado. The string quartet played harmoniously while tears filled Matt’s eyes as the moment they waited so long for and prayed so hard for was here! They are now husband and wife, and nothing could have put a damper on this day because love was at the center of it all!
Liz & Matt, we know this day was different than planned initially; however, in a way, the story and legacy you will tell your future generations is so much more special! Your intimate celebration with those closest to you in a space that was so close to your heart, talk about a love tale that will never get old! And to be honest, we’re pretty stoked that we get to celebrate with you twice! Thank you so much for being such incredible humans and for giving us the honor of capturing all these memories of your story! We love you guys and are counting down the days until your May wedding at Drumore Estate next year!
