On a sunny, beautiful day, all of Elizabeth & Jared’s hard work and planning came together in what was a beautiful celebration of love from beginning to end. Whiteface Hollow was the gorgeous location for a wedding rich with elegant colors, sweet details, and an overall warm aesthetic.
While the groomsmen got ready in the tasting room, the bridesmaids were in the farmhouse being pampered by Bridal Beauty by Renu. Warren, from Warren Lane Photography captured those important getting ready shots and the simple details that made the day so personal (I couldn’t love the ‘Mr. & Mrs.’ chucks that Elizabeth wore more)! The groomsmen had their moments in front of the camera as well. In classic groomsmen style, more than one photo captured their playful energy on the big day.
Elizabeth was glowing in a beautiful gown she found at Flair Boston as she walked to meet Jared in the fields for their first look. The emotion and joy seen on their faces as they saw each other for the first time was a true testament of their love. Dressed in burgundy gowns, the bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous as they joined Elizabeth & Jared for photos. Complimenting the dresses were vibrant bouquets of sunflowers and roses created by the talented Hannah from The Bachelor Button. Not to be outdone, the groomsmen looked dapper in their navy suits, and the Elizabeth’s pup Boston also had his big moment joining in for some fun photos!
As the processional music began, the sun took over the clouds and illuminated Elizabeth and her father, Kenneth, as they walked down the aisle. A few guests were already wiping away tears as Jared greeted a radiant Elizabeth and the ceremony began. Officiated by Mary, a close friend of the couple, the ceremony was heartfelt and personal, as the whole wedding would be. Sealed with a kiss, the two were pronounced married and took their first walk as husband and wife amidst their cheering guests!
Following the ceremony, Elizabeth and Jared snuck away for more photos with their bridal party and families, while guests enjoyed the weather and cocktail hour outside. Drinks were flowing from the team at DeeLuxe Bartending, and everyone noshed on a beautiful stationary appetizer display while they caught up with family & friends.
DJ Mike from First Class Weddings officially got the party started by introducing the bridal party into the reception space. Guests were on their feet laughing and capturing their own photos as the amped up crew showed off their dance moves, shot gunned beers, and gave the bride & groom the welcome they deserved. Elizabeth & Jared made quite the entrance as Jared picked Elizabeth up and carried her around to more laughter! They moved swiftly back onto the dance floor and shared their first dance to “The Bones” by Maren Morris. Flame Mobile Pizza delighted guests by serving a variety of pizzas, including gluten free options, while the toasts began. Jared’s Mom, Deborah, Elizabeth’s parents Lisa & Kenneth, maid of honor Christina, and best man Matt all gave compelling and emotional toasts. I had goosebumps when Elizabeth’s Mom, Lisa, said that they were now a complete family, and I laughed out loud when her Dad, Kenneth, said you don’t know how much time you have on Earth, and you don’t know when you will have grandchildren. Props to the subtle hint!
After emotional dances with their parents, DJ Mike lit up the dance floor and the dance party began with full force! Stealing away only for a moment to cut the cake, a classy floral creation by E(at)xactly Cakes, Elizabeth and Jared were permanent fixtures on the dance floor, showing off their best dance moves. I loved every minute working with this kind, sweet, and fun couple, and it was a joy to see their vison come to life.
Elizabeth & Jared - As Jared’s Mom said, marriage is a wonderful journey. I’m sending you both so much love as you embark on this new journey together. xo
