Alanna and Josh really knocked their wedding out of the park, adding so much of their personalities into their big day. So much color and so many fun details in this wedding! We’re loving all the wildflower arrangements and their custom invite!

From their Photographer: Let me prepare you for all of the gorgeousness [above]! Alanna and Josh’s wedding had sooo many amazing details and heartfelt moments. It was seriously a photographer’s dream. I love love LOVE their custom invitations that depict them and their venue. Super cute! I also loved their vintage details on every single table. Alanna’s dress was very chic and unique. Their ceremony was under a huge oak tree, and their rustic style barn reception, complete with string lights, was very romantic. Josh’s face when he first saw Alanna walking up the isle was priceless. I love day time weddings and the gorgeous natural light it provides. They hired a folk singer, which really fit the mood! Everything went perfectly, and I was so glad to have the honor of capturing their wedding day.
How they met: Alanna and Joshua met at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Slidell when they were in the youth program. They became friends, and after a couple of weeks, began dating.
How he proposed: Josh proposed on the Riverwalk at sunset in New Orleans. They were sitting there watching the boats, and then Alanna heard their song (Unforgettable by Nat King Cole.) As Alanna turned around, she saw her sister with their dog Stella and Stella had the ring tied to her collar on a bow. Josh knelt down and tried to get his speech out, but he had to cut it short since he was so nervous and choked up.

This backyard wedding was made with so much love by the couple’s family. The birch arch was made by the bride’s father for their beach ceremony across the street from their home. Their tented reception was decorated by the bride’s sister and offered yard games like giant-sized jenga. We’re loving the fun and relaxed vibe of this wedding!

From their Photographer: Prepare to feast your eyes on this incredibly delicious wedding!! Joe and Christina are quite the stunning pair and everything about their wedding complimented their every move. This amazing wedding took place at the beach across the street from Christina’s parents house with a custom white birch arbor lovingly made by the brides father, Gary. Their reception was held in the back yard, which was fantastically decorated by Christina’s sister, Michelle. Michelle thought of everything. She has such a creative mind and you could see the love and adoration she has for her sister and new brother-in-law in each and every piece she designed and displayed. The yard was decked out with yard games, particularly a life sized Jenga game, which was masterfully played by the wedding party. Scroll down to see all the fun. Everything was put together wonderfully by friends and family, making this day a huge success.

This rustic apple orchard wedding, handmade with the help of the bride’s mother, is filled with so much prettiness! We’re loving the colors, the romantic photos, and the antique carousel!

From their Photographer: Taylor & Paul met and were married within less than a year’s time. Their wedding was a beautifully DIY-ed, rustic but elegant tribute to not only their love, but to the love that surrounded them through their families and friends. The bride’s mother was a catalyst in the planning and decor – all handmade and executed with grace and style. The country setting of an apple orchard (complete with an antique carousel!) made for the perfect backdrop for this couple to say “I do.”

We can’t decide on our favorite part of this rustic Indiana wedding, we love it all! The bride looks so gorgeous in her gown and the soft pink and peach tones adds the romance to the rustic. We love all the cute personal details they added like the Star Wars cake topper, all so beautifully captured by Cathy and David Photographers!

From their Photographer: Katie and Keth wanted a reclusive spot for their outdoor ceremony and discovered the beautiful County Line Orchard in Hobart, Indiana. When guests arrived, wooden signs (handcrafted by the groom) directed guests to hop on a tractor-pulled wagon, which carried them to the ceremony site nestled in the orchard.

At the reception, held in the rustic red barn, Keth surprised Katie by pulling out his guitar and singing to her, accompanied by a few of his groomsmen singing backup. The couple decorated with a number of personal touches, including Star Wars cake toppers and cork place card holders. My favorite touch was their twist on a guest book: a wine rack full of empty bottles, each marked with a different anniversary year of their marriage, for guests to place messages in. At the end of the night, the bottles were corked and won’t be opened until the anniversary year of each bottle. The couple and their friends and family partied away the rest of the night with dancing, doughnuts, and a prop-filled photobooth.
