Jessica and Steve had the most perfect of summer days for their Rustic Manor 1848 wedding. I fell madly in love with this location as it is the perfect blend of elegant and rustic, plus it has an absolutely insane amount of impossibly perfect photo backdrops. So many personal touches turned the venue into the vision that it became on their wedding day. The bride’s mother grew and arranged many of the flowers that decorated the tabletops, as well as the rosemary that graced each place setting. Wood Violet designed and arranged the wedding party’s flower arrangements as well as that incredible hop covered trellis. My favorite part of the day was Steve and Jessica’s first look, it was so full of anticipation and love. Capturing the pure emotion from that moment had my eyes welling with tears – always the sucker for that kind of love! I always say that the best part of my job is telling the story of love…it’s one hundred percent true.
