These photos are going to make you smile from ear to ear because that’s just how contagious Grace & Hank’s joy is! These two are so warm and welcoming, from the minute you meet them it’s as if you’ve known them forever! They know how to laugh together and have a great time and that’s all they wanted to do on their wedding day! They decided to share a first look so they could see each other before hand and spend as much of their wedding day together as possible! It was such a sweet first look! They teared up just a little but mostly couldn’t stop hugging and smiling! SO sweet!
Grace and Hank picked the beautiful backdrop of the Estate at Farrington Lake. I have never heard of this venue and if you were driving down the road to it, you may have thought google maps got you lost! It’s in the middle of the suburbs but once you turn down to drive towards the venue, WOW! Right along the lake, it’s a beautiful quiet venue – and with all the gorgeous tall trees surrounding it, the PERFECT venue for a fall wedding day! There was a little chill in the air but wow, you couldn’t have handpicked a better day for a wedding in November!
They teared up all over again while they exchanged their vows and rings and then, they were husband and wife! They didn’t have a cocktail hour because their reception was just an extension of cocktail hour! GENIUS! That’s right – cocktail hour food all night long! And I loved that idea because it meant less pausing to eat and more DANCING! The night kicked off with their beautiful first dance to “I see the light” from TANGLED. These two are fellow disney nerds and it was the PERFECT nod to Disney! Their dance was perfect (and you KNOW I was sobbing behind my camera the whole time!) We had the BEST time capturing these two get married and I’m just the happiest for them!
Grace and Hank, have fun in the BAHAMA’S!!! lol I wish nothing but endless laughter and happiness for you both!! 🙂
