Every time I have tried to describe this Wedding day to others, words have failed me!
It was one of those days where everyone surrounded the bride and groom with an outpouring of love and and a strong passion to help this day be the best day it could be for Ariel and Blake.
If you will remember we did Ariel and Blakes engagement session on some land that Ariel’s family held close to their heart- the land was owned by Ariel’s grandfather and the family would frequently go fishing on the little pond by the two large oaks (these beautiful mountains in the background) When we came to the location it is of course gorgeous but when Ariel and Blake explained this is where the wedding would be we were amazed because it was just a little pavilion and that was it,
Fast forward to the big day! Ariel’s family BUILT a cabin and honestly just created an amazing venue just for the couple!
After getting ready at Ariel’s Grandmother’s house we headed over to the trail by the cottage to do the first look.
Guys, can we talk about how beautiful this couple photographs? Not surprisingly of course they knew exactly what to do- they are so very comfortable with one another and it is the sweetest! Ariel and Blake also had a little photo spot for their puppies Ashton and Lady- these two puppies also made their appearance in the engagement session.
The bridal party for this wedding was so much fun they were all super helpful and so excited for this day- just a really fun group!
We could not contain ourselves for this ceremony…..
Not only was it incredibly beautiful because we were surrounded by mountains and the perfect light for that time of day. (Golden hour *swoon*) but we also got to experience our very first foot washing ceremony.
The reception was so much fun! It had some of the cutest decor and detail we have seen and it turns our Ariel and her crew stayed up till the wee hours of the morning the night before to make sure everything was perfect (Do not recommend) and it was perfect!
Everyone really had a blast at the reception and just danced until they couldn’t dance anymore! This is one wedding we won’t soon be forgetting and we are so excited to share these images with you!
We can’t wait to see what adventures await Mr. and Mrs. Wimberly
