NICOLE + BRETT
September 28|29, 2017
The Lodge at Loma Linda, Grandin Missouri
When Nicole contacted us about their classy wedding on the groom's family farm, we knew it was going to be perfect. They traveled from their home in New Mexico to get married on Brett's family farm at the Lodge at Loma Linda surrounded by their closest family members on Friday afternoon and had a reception with friends and family on Saturday.
Their ceremony was held in front of a backdrop of beautiful oak trees and a simple arbor with white, flowing fabric that complimented their soft and femme details in a rustic location. We LOVED Nicole's choice in flowers and greenery. (Don't even get us started on her dress. How beautiful is it??) Her soft pink and white florals we're the perfect contrast to the lush greens still clinging to the early autumn earth. After they said "I do!", Brett and Nicole drove us around the property so we could take some portraits and soak up all those just married feels. Favorite location? Oh. That's a hard one. It's definitely a toss us between the incredible sunset light peeking over the hill and the bridge we reached right as the sun was setting. (One photo reminds us of The Princess Bride!)
Saturday we drove back to photograph their reception! (and eat a couple slices of cake! ;) ) There were yard games like Corn Hole and Giant Jenga, (You can actually see the exact moment that mans heart broke as they fell to the ground. lol) southern BBQ, beautiful speeches, great dancing, and so much love and laughter. It was truly a joy to experience.
Thanks so much for reading along!
