I love fall… flannel, Blues hockey is back, and we can finally stop melting during wedding setups! But best of all it’s the time of year where summer wedding photos start rolling in from photographers, and just as things finally start to cool off, I get to relive all the sunny summer weddings we helped to create. I was especially excited to get this set of images of Hanna and Victoria’s wedding from their photographer, Bradford Martens. I had stalked his website and fell in love with his dramatic style, and I have to say these stunning photos did not disappoint!
Hanna and Vickie were married this past June at Three Barn Farm, and I think the photos speak for themselves when it comes to how much love surrounded this day. You can just tell how excited everyone was… it’s radiating from every picture! From the ceremony inside the barn where family and friends surrounded the couple while they said their vows, to the reception and dance party to follow, it was a wonderful day.
For Hanna and Vickie’s bouquets we wanted them to be unique, yet also compliment each other. Hanna’s bouquet incorporated lots of deep purple and sage green tones, including succulents, which she loves. Vickie’s bouquet was a bit lighter, with white peonies and pale yellow stock, but tied back to Hannah’s with purple hues and the same types of greenery. They were both beautiful individually, but also looked wonderful next to each other! For the other floral elements, we created pieces that were textural and a bit rustic to fit in with the farm setting. We used lots of succulents, lavender, and even kale, which worked perfectly with the purple and green palette. In the barn, a large greenery wreath that hung over Hanna and Vickie during the ceremony, and then later over the dance floor as they shared their first dance. It was an understated yet perfect statement piece.
This was such a beautiful wedding, and we are so honored to have been a part of Hanna and Victoria’s day! Thank you again to Bradford for sharing these amazing photos, and to Natalie of Simcha’s Events for planning an amazing day for these two!
