Outdoor weddings have been the trend for summer 2020 due to the Covid-19 regulations restricting large gatherings to outdoor events. A large portion of larger weddings have moved to farms, backyards and tents or outdoors at venues. Rachel and Luke's wedding was planned to be at a farm wedding way before Covid-19 came to be so it worked out that they could continue with their wedding plans.
Our wedding day photography begins at Bluebird Farm owned by the warm and friendly hosts Joseph and Carmen Hall. The property has numerous outbuildings, barn, tree house, pasture and numerous farm animals including pigs, sheep, goats, cows, ducks, chickens dogs. They can all be seen hanging out and enjoying the days on the farm making for a perfect farm friends wedding.
Rachel and Luke's wedding started off on a warm early September summer day with getting ready photos of Luke and the guys.
Next were the getting ready photos of Rachel and her bridesmaids at the barn loft. The girls were so beautiful in their navy blue dresses and sunflower bouquets. Great job Rachel and the girls!
With the getting ready photos of Luke and his groomsmen and Rachel and her bridesmaids complete it was time for their "First Look" outside the barn followed by portraits together of Rachel and Luke. The farm property provided many backgrounds for their portraits including gardens of sunflowers, rustic outbuildings, fences and fields.
The wedding party joined in on the fun with portraits before the ceremony so Rachel and Luke could enjoy their cocktail hour as much as possible.
Next was their outdoor ceremony in the late afternoon. The guests started showing up and it was time for a wonderful ceremony.
Family was very important to Rachel and Luke. We spent the first half of the cocktail taking family photos at the farm.
As the day moved into the late afternoon the excitement ramped up as the reception began under the big tent and neighboring barn.
We danced, laughed and celebrated into the night way past the time that the cows came home. Rachel and Luke did an amazing job of planning and putting together such a joyous and fun wedding celebration.
