I just posted Taylor and Chase’s ceremony photos and I couldn’t wait to post the rest of their images because they are so full of awesomeness by TimWill Photography.

I said this in my first post, but I HEART Taylor & Chase! They are super sweet and down to earth and are meant to be together!  The flowers were just as sweet as this couple. Kirk and Don with Oakleaf Flower and Garden executed Taylor’s vision perfectly. I love the extra touches of cotton, the rustic bench used as a table runner with tons of candles, old books, wooden spools, etc.

I have to mention the super cute Jameson whiskey barrel cake, but even cuter than that were the homemade peach-ginger jams that Taylor and Chase personally made for their guests, complete with a demitasse spoon! And they tasted as good as the looked!

For the rest of our brides that are loving the getaway car… it belongs to the family and isn’t available for rent!  Enjoy the rest of these images; it was quite a party! Special thanks to all of the awesome vendors!

I love, love, love this wedding! Every single detail, the color palette, the flowers, the cake, and most especially Taylor and Chase. They are such a sweet, thoughtful, talented, meant to be together forever couple.  So, when I was picking out the photos for their blog post, I absolutely could not narrow it down to just one post – there are way too many gorgeous, detailed shots by the so very talented TimWill PhotographyThis post is all about the invitations, the ceremony and of course, Taylor and Chase!

I could devote an entire blog post just to the printed material at this wedding!  Taylor is an exceptionally gifted designer with an eye for details and it was super-apparent from their invitations to their welcome bags!

Old Edwards Inn is such a stunning location for a wedding.  The ceremony is outside in a gorgeous apple orchard and Taylor stayed true to wanting to create a wedding that was personal to her and Chase. She designed and created the ceremony backdrop out of fabric strips and rustic tree limbs. The guests also played some fun Mab Lib games while they were waiting for the ceremony to start.  The shots of just Taylor and Chase in the gardens and surrounding property are amazing!

More fabulous details to come! Special thanks to all of the awesome vendors!

Lindsey & Dan were married on a gorgeous October day at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn. Lindsey’s palette was full of soft pinks and ivory’s with accents of cornflower blue. A very romantic feel that blended perfectly with the Farm. The ceremony took place in the orchard and the bride surprise the groom with an a capella group after the ceremony singing “So Happy Together”.

I had so much fun working with this couple and all of their unique ideas…check out the cake toppers.
