Ardenwood Park Wedding | Frances + Michael

Frances and Michael are lovers of photography, so naturally, it was such a compliment that they asked to me to photograph their wedding! And what a wedding it was! Everything was placed with intentionality and flawless design – Frances even handprinted all of the calligraphy pieces herself. They chose Ardenwood Park because they loved the greenery and the animals at the park. (I guess the animals loved them, too, because the goat kissed the groom during portraits!) Going with the natural ambiance around the farm, they opted for a classic theme with a few rustic accents added in. The soft greenery, bridal white, and hints of blue were just perfect for this outdoor ceremony. And the weather was amazing! The sun shone warmly for the happy couple, and it looked stunning twinkling through the shade trees sprawled across the property. Absolutely dreamy!

about their sweet day

People flew in from all over the work to see these two get married, quite the testament to how beloved they are. After their super sweet and elegantly classic ceremony, everyone spent some time enjoying the weather, playing lawn games, and sipping cocktails before heading inside to celebrate with the bride and groom.

My documentary style of shooting went perfectly with this fun-loving couple’s personality, and the portraits were laid back and quick as we took pictures near all of the couple’s favorite spots. Check out some of their photos around the farm below – too cute!

At the reception, their friends and family, both young and old, danced the night away. Frances and Michael love K-pop and had a coordinated dance routine to one of their favorite upbeat songs. It’s almost impossible to keep a straight face around these two, and I had a blast celebrating right along with them. I truly fell in love with Frances and Michael’s goofy, big warm hearts. Congratulations, you two!
