When we arrived at Flagstone Farm to shoot Cassidy & Sam's wedding, I was struck by the sweet beauty of the place. Rolling green hills, an open chapel perched atop one of them. The GORGEOUS cottage with every beautiful detail you can imagine; and the rustic farmhouse feel of the reception hall. Did I mention there's a lake and dock for fishing and winding dirt roads through trees and wildflowers? Sigh.
As the wedding day progressed, threatening clouds loomed and eventually poured down harder than I've ever seen in my life. But Cassidy's charm and sweet demeanor never wavered through the day. When we had to take all the portraits on a covered porch to stay dry, she didn't mind! And when the rain beat down louder and louder during the ceremony, until you could no longer hear the officiant yelling, she just laughed hysterically. Cassidy was just beautiful, inside and out, and her joy and love radiated throughout the day.
I have a hard time narrowing down all the sweet details from her day, but here's just a few: she had signs for each of her girls to hold describing how they know each other; their guestbook was a large frame, and guests signed little flat wooden hearts and dropped them into the top of the frame, plink-style (SO cool!!); and they had a beautiful custom-made ring box with their initials!
Oh, I'm not done yet though. Because THEIR RECEPTION. Guys, it was amazing. I mean like, rocked. the. house. It was kickin'. All the dorky-cool phrases in the world don't measure up. Spirited sing-a-long to Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'? Check. Tearful dance with the parents? Check. Amazing dance moves from almost every single guest? And sweet + hilarious toast from bridesmaids? Yup. Oh, and how about the most EPIC GARTER TOSS OF ALL TIME. Guys, I'm not gonna lie, it got a little scary. And awesome. Basically, I wish I could party with these people every night. Yeah, you wish you were there, too.
Anyway, here we go:
Congrats to these two, wishing you both the best!
