Not too long ago, Abby contacted me, telling me her and groom-to-be Jimmy were pulling together a short notice wedding and asked if I was available to be the photographer! It just so happened that the day they needed me, I was! And I am sooo glad I got the privilege of being their photographer on their big day! I can't imagine a more fun, relaxed, undeniably in love couple to shoot for!! I was able to relax and enjoy myself while getting all the shots I could dream of! And they treated me like a valued part of the day, which made it so nice.
Abby and Jimmy held the ceremony at a close friend's home, and the decor was Christmas-themed and beautiful!
Abby made a gorgeous bride! Her bridal portraits are stunning! Here's a sneak peek:
One of the best moments of any wedding ceremony . . . "You may kiss the bride."
Abby chose to go with a red dress for the day. With this choice, I found it interesting to learn a little more about the historical colors of wedding dresses. A friend told me red dresses used to be very common on wedding days. According to wikipedia, "White did not become a popular option until 1840, after the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert of Saxe Coburg. . . . The tradition continues today in the form of a white wedding, though prior to the Victorian era, a bride was married in any color." Go, Abby!
The home had a beautiful sun room featuring a large window overlooking a lake. This made for possibly my absolute favorite picture of the day!
After the ceremony and posing for indoor shots, the lovely couple headed outside to capture more of the emotion of their day.
