A Country Club Wedding. The forecast called for a nearly 90 degree wedding day, so we prepared for hot one! For a photographer that means plenty of water, sunscreen, and your hair up! We’ve made the mistake of leaving our hair down too many times, and by the end of the day looking as if we got tossed by a tornado!
There are some of our brides who tell us everything about the wedding, from start to finish, and all the details they’ll have ready for us in the morning. Then there are some who don’t say much at all, covering just the bases we need to know, and like Lynnette, go ALL out! Let us explain how.
We arrived to the brides parents house where all the girls were getting ready. There were seven of them, so as you could imagine, there was hair and makeup going on in each corner, dresses hung up on every door frame, and if you remember their adorable dalmatian puppy from their engagement session, was all grown up running from room to room. We hugged Lynnette and then she took us into the room to show us around. Her mother had taken the last few months to completely remodel this room from walls, to flooring, glass french doors, and filled it to the brim with antique furniture. Not only that, she had coordinated everything to go with the wedding colors! Her wedding dress hung from an heirloom mirror and draped across the tufted love seat, the bridesmaids gifts showcased along the fur throw that hung from the armchair, and her wedding details were styled beautifully across on the velvet ottoman. At that exact moment you could have picked our jaws off the ground. Today was going to be an amazing wedding!
The ceremony took place at their home church, a location to them that held so much family history. Once they shared vows and exchanged rings, they were whisked away to a BEAUTIFULLY styled tented reception that stretched along the first tee of their country club. White marble tiled dance floor, hanging chandeliers, draped ceiling, and a bar set for a king! We were giddy with excitement! Congratulations Lynnette and Sergio, you’re country club wedding was an absolute dream!
