Rachel and Lucas - Wedding Day Bliss

 

I arrived at Aska Farms in Blue Ridge and found the bride getting ready surrounded by her bridesmaids.  Rachel was her lovely and carefree self.  Laughter filled the bridal suite as I made my way out with all the pretty details to shoot.

I was so obsessed with her bouquet!!  The bright colors mixed with succulents were just to die for!  The cheerful colors she chose complimented the day perfectly.

Lucas and Rachel exchanged letters and gifts for each other.  Lucas handmade a wooden hair straightener and dryer holder for Rachel that was just gorgeous...not to mention thoughtful.

Rachel got dressed with the help of her bridesmaids and she just glowed.  Her gown was classic and elegant.  I especially loved her long veil.  Bridal portraits and photos with the bridesmaids and flower girl were a piece of cake. Everyone was so joyful and lovely.  And again...those colors...wow.

The men were comfortable yet classy in their button ups, vests, jeans and boots.  They also had just a little bit of fun during their formals.

Four generations were present.

Rachel and Lucas wanted to keep their day traditional and not see each other before the wedding, however, they still wanted to pray together beforehand.  So we arranged that.  <3

Rachel did have a first look with her father, and it was completely precious.

It was time for the ceremony.  Aska Farms has an amazing view of the Blue Ridge mountains and the ceremony site is placed perfectly to enjoy it.

IMG_3449IMG_3449 The ring bearer wasn't nearly as enthused about a photo together with the flower girl as she was.  IMG_3479IMG_3479 IMG_3464IMG_3464 IMG_3655IMG_3655

We took a few quiet minutes before the reception for just the newly weds.  The stormy skies added to the mountain backdrop.  We took advantage of the dreamy sunlight coming through the clouds for a few more bridal portraits as well.

The reception was fun and sweet.  The food was my personal favorite, pasta, and their cake and tower of cupcakes were delicious.

Sunset portraits are always my favorite.  They are romantic and really give the couple another bit of time to breathe with each other after the rush of the day.

The newlyweds were sent off by their guests with sparklers and cheers.
