Sarah+Tracy

Sarah and Tracy are back on our blog again!  We simply adored their wedding in New Albany, Indiana.  They were married in the field by Sarah’s grandfather’s barn under a large oak tree.  Notice the heart on the tree.

Love Sarah’s choice of flowers.

Anyone remember their engagement session?!  They included Ale81 in their engagement session and provided bottles for their wedding too.  It was something that brought these two together.

Her grandfather’s shed.

Sarah was one of the few brides I’ve had this year who did her own makeup.  Let me tell you, it turned out gorgeous!

There’s Tracy!  Looking spiffy.

Groomsmen!!

When I work through wedding images, sometimes I get images like the one of the left and sometimes I get ones like on the right.

2016-09-15_0023

First look with her dad.  Can’t get over his reaction.  My view.

Nick’s view.

Helpful bridesmaids walking Sarah to her first look with Tracy.  It rained the night before, so the ground was extremely muddy, but that didn’t stop Sarah.

2016-09-15_0017

First look.  Love these moments.

2016-09-15_0018

Checking out the back of her dress.  Ahhhh!!!  Don’t you LOVE it!?

2016-09-15_0019

Gah!!  Stunning!

2016-09-15_0020

Sarah gave Tracy a pocket watch as a gift.

2016-09-15_0021

Lookin’ good, Tracy.

2016-09-15_0024

I’m a little obsessed with Sarah’s details.

That image on the right.  One of my favorites.

2016-09-15_0027

Oh, bridesmaids.  I love everything about this.  Your dresses.  Your flowers.  Your smiles.  And notice Sarah’s wearing a jacket on the right.  Even though we shot this wedding this past summer, it was ridiculously cold for a summer wedding.  Everyone handled the chilliness so well.

2016-09-15_0028

Another favorite!

2016-09-15_0052

Love these two!

2016-09-15_0037

Sarah drove herself across her grandfather’s land to the aisle.

This image means so much more since this was her grandfather’s land.

2016-09-15_0033

Oh, Sarah!  Gorgeous.

2016-09-15_0034

Tracy is such a gentleman.  Really all-around good guy.

2016-09-15_0035

2016-09-15_0036

Ha!  Can you see why we love these two!?  P.S. – Sarah had other shoes she planned on wearing, but because it was so muddy she changed into these boots.  Yep, just like that.

2016-09-15_0038

I can hear everyone gasping now.  Eeekk!  Yes, a little mud got on her dress, but Sarah was more interested in living in the moment than worrying about her dress.

2016-09-15_0039

Tracy, I’ve never seen a cake cutting quite like this one.  Umm, you guys win!

2016-09-15_0040

A few more portraits.  Love these in black and white.

2016-09-15_0041

First dance.  “All of Me” by John Legend.  They took dance lessons leading up to this day, so it was awesome to see it come together.

2016-09-15_0042

Father-daughter dance.

2016-09-15_0044

Mother-son dance.

2016-09-15_0045

During the reception, we often have individuals from the wedding party secretly tell us that they are getting ready to decorate the bride and groom’s vehicle.  Ha!  We so appreciate that.

2016-09-15_0046

Party time!

Last dance of the evening.

Sarah and Tracy,

You two are exceptional.  We were honored that you asked us to photograph your day.  Thank you both for being YOU.

Caitlynn & Nick

As I was taking a picture of these two, Nick decided to photograph them through my arm.  Love that I get to work with such a creative guy each weekend.

Lanie - Mother of the bride

The pearls were the ones my husband gave me on my birthday.
I was so honored she asked for them.

It was, for many of us, a very emotional wedding. Her grandfather passed recently, and having the wedding on the family farm made us feel as though Bud and Dolores were right there with us. Not to mention the teamwork it took to transform a rainy, muddy field into a thing of beauty.

October 2, 2016 - 8:39 pm

Lanie - I just realized the photo of the groomsmen were with my neighbors, Dawn and Mick’s house. Sidebar, whenever we had tornado warnings, Dawn and Mick and the kids would come over and stay with us in the basement. If there was a storm, we had an open door policy, just come on over. Wow. The memories just keep flooding in. This picture means so much to me because of the years we spent as young mothers raising children in tornado country.
