Sara + David :: Wedding at Mansion at Judge’s Hill

January 6, 2012

Sara and David’s wedding was just such a joy to photograph. I had gotten to know Sara, her sister and one ultra fab bridesmaids, Alexia before the wedding and it was like I was amongst some great girlfriends on the actual wedding day. I really enjoy not only getting to know my super kind and lovely clients, but their friends and family too!  David was such a gentleman and sweetheart and Sara, the classiest and sweetest bride ever! Here are just a few of my favorite images from the day…

One of my favorite moments was when Sara and her dad were practicing their father daughter dance before she got into her dress.

She rode over to the church to have her first look in this gorgeous vintage cadillac!

And, since Sara didn’t have a bridal portrait time, she carved out a big chunk of time to take some really incredible images on the wedding day. She was an absolute vision! And that dress was so incredible

Sara was reluctant to do a first look. But I promised her, all my client’s who have been hesitant are ALWAYS glad they did it afterwards. Not one has regretted taking the time to have a private moment together.

And…she had the chicest DIY details around. Such incredible style.

And a few words from the Bride and Groom:

    A. Besides marrying David and seeing all of our friends and family- I had so much fun getting ready with my bridesmaids and hanging out on the balcony of the mansion.
