Paige and Michael’s September Wedding at SHGC
P + M are such a fun-loving couple, this wedding was as enjoyable in person as it looks in the photos! The only thing at the wedding that could out-sparkle the inside of the tent was Paige’s sparkly smile. She was just so darn excited to become Michael’s Mrs! Can’t say I blame her – Michael is a big soft-spoken sweetheart. Together they are one of those couples that everyone claims as their favorite, including us!
Paige Getting Ready
SHGC has fantastic little cottages on the property. Paige and Michael got ready in nearby cottages, but didn’t see each other before the ceremony – no peeking!
Paige reading her sweet card from Michael. There he goes, being all lovey-dovey and ruining her makeup.
I think everyone approves of Paige’s entrance!
Michael Getting Ready
How cute is that smile?
I love how similar Michael’s photos are to Paige’s! Didn’t even plan that…
Pre-ceremony Photos: The Men
We shot some formal portraits before the ceremony to get them out of the way and free up time at the cocktail hour. Men first!
Pre-ceremony Photos: The Ladies
After sending the men away, the ladies arrived in style for their portraits.
The little one is all set with the portraits…
Can you stand how lovely the light is? How about how lovely Paige is?!
SHGC only hosts a few weddings per season- we always feel so privileged to shoot here, it’s so pretty!
Love this mother-daughter moment.
I DO Time
How is this for a backdrop?
That kiss photo is perfection. Swoon, swoon, swoony!
I must confess- these portraits were a little hectic. The light was leaving, the people were scattered about, and the clock was ticking down. You’d never know! Except maybe for the flower-girl! LOL No worries, this is kind of the norm. We don’t get ruffled – we get it done!
Bring on the Golden Hour!
The only time we get a little stressed is when we are running out of time to get portraits of our couple. We’d like a good 15 minutes. I think we had about 5 this time, but we did some super-snapping in that 5 minutes!
Photographer’s Fave – Framer!
I mean, what more do you need? This is one of my all-time favorite pictures.
Bonus pics, snapping like mad on the walk back to the reception…
All the sparkly details inside the gorgeous tent! We had maybe ten minutes to shoot the details and the cocktail hour before the reception started. I (Mariah) tackled snapping every pretty angle.
P + M even got a few minutes to enjoy their cocktail hour. Trish was on cocktail hour deets and candids…
Making an Entrance
Let the fun begin! Oh wait, we’ve been having fun all along…
This dress was made for twirling!
So many laughs!
Sweets and Smooches!
The band was awesome- everyone was dancing like maniacs!
to a very sparkly September Wedding at SHGC!
