I had looked forward to returning once again to Diamonds and Dust to photograph Brooke and Ethan's rustic outdoor wedding. The grounds were beautiful, and I always adore a classic red barn. The weather, however, had made alternative plans for the day. The showers began in the morning and showed no signs of ceasing. Indoors it was, and luckily the barns' interior was beautiful and adorned with country decor and twinkling lights.
The couple didn't seem to let the rain dampen their day and were just as sweet and laid back as during their engagement session. Their ceremony was flawless and beautiful, and the reception celebratory and fun. During the reception we were granted a short break in the down pour, so we took advantage and captured a few natural light portraits of Brooke and Ethan. The moments outdoors rounded out the day perfectly and allowed them a little time to themselves.
Even though the day didn't completely go as planned, Brooke and Ethan had their perfect wedding, and I felt so privileged to work with them and capture their special moments.
You'll be seeing these two love birds again. I'm photographing their wedding in October! :)
