From the photographers: “The rustic backdrop of Honsberger Estates in Jordan Station was the stunning location that Sarah and Andrew chose for their wedding day. If love is shown in the details, then Sarah and Andrew out did themselves in showing how special they are to each other. From the burlap aisle runner to “made-with-love” preserves for guest favors to the wood-planked tables adorned with candle light, snapdragons, and rosebuds kept that elegant feel that Sarah and Andrew had hoped to achieve. Every gorgeous detail was so beautifully put into place creating a warm ambiance for their friends and family to enjoy as they became husband and wife.
The morning began with a surprise delivery of flowers to Sarah from Andrew as her aunt was putting the final touches on her classic updo. After hair and makeup was done, Sarah personally handed out the bridesmaids’ bouquets complete with a added, personal touch – a gift of a brooch made unique to each bridesmaid. Meanwhile, Andrew and the groomsmen enjoyed getting ready at a friends house nearby. Once the guys were ready, they had fun taking pictures complete with a vintage VW Beetle.
The old exposed beams and embedded stone made for the perfect setting for their simple ceremony. One of the highlights of the ceremony was when the guest were asked to join as they were led in a few worship songs that were close to the couple’s hearts, certainly a moment that will not be forgotten.
For there formal couple pictures, we scouted out a field and grove of birch trees allowing Sarah and Andrew a moment to step away from the guests and enjoy a moment as husband and wife, capturing those intimate images that they had been dreaming of.
As a special treat for their guests, Sarah and Andrew entertained their friends and family with a live band – The Postmen. From fun dinner music to their first dance and some crazy fun on the dance floor, The Postmen kept the party rocking and did an amazing job. To top of their amazing day, Andrew had a little secret that he had been planning for Sarah. As night fell and the party came to an end, Sarah and Andrew got ready to exit with sparklers and guests waving goodbye. Unbeknownst to Sarah, Andrew had arranged for some of the groomsmen to be hiding out in a local field with fireworks. As they drove away, the sky was lit up.” — Mike and Jenny Vinson of VP Studios Photography
