Angela & Chris | Succop Conservancy Wedding |Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos

It’s impossible to do deny that Angela and Chris are smitten with each other! This was such a wonderful wedding–everyone was overjoyed to be sharing this day with them. Angela looked absolutely gorgeous, and Chris couldn’t take his eyes off of her! They had both their ceremony and reception at the Succop Conservancy, one of my favorite venues!

Alfred Angelo Sapphire, Alfred Angelo bridal gown,

I loved this detail on Angela’s Alfred Angelo gown–she cut a heart from one of her father’s blue shirts and stitched it into her gown–her something blue!

IMG_0035Angela was very much a DIY Goddess–aside from doing all the decor and signs, she insisted on ironing her shawl herself, even though everyone wanted to do it for her 🙂

Everyone loves a girl that can expertly make mimosas!

First look with Father, Father of the bride First lookI loved this touching moment between Angela and her dad. She was waiting for him to come up and see her as soon as she was ready–she looked stunning and her proud father was so moved! It was a beautiful moment!

All the girls and their names and wedding dates, and each carries it with her down the isle--what a lovely idea for friends to share!

They decided to use wine! They had each a white and a red, and poured into a carafe each to make a blush, and then both sipped from the same glass, symbolizing their unity as a married couple.

The wine table for their Wine Unity Ceremony! One white, one red, to make a blush that they both sipped. Very unique and classic!

Watching the ceremony between Angela and Chris was just enchanting! They were so enamored with each other, and so excited to be saying their vows in front of their family and friends–there was lots of laughter and sharing of stories, there was not a dry eye in the audience!

The first photo is taken IN focus, it’s crisp and sharp, with Angela and Chris holding each other. The second one is Angela and Chris in the same pose, but I purposely put the image OUT of focus just slightly, and turned black and white, it blurs the line on what is “correct” and moves into the realm of “romantic, ethereal, dreamy”. Sometimes putting a photo slightly out of focus takes the weight off of being “right” and just being “here in the moment”. That’s what I want to bring–a passionate feeling, a fleeting moment, something you’ll want to remember forever. Compare these next two photos, and see what you think!

I love shooting at the Succop Conservancy in the evening! The sun comes in at just the right angle to get these gorgeous lens flares. This was done all in camera and no Photoshop was applied.
