Driving through the rolling hills of grass to Lingrow Farm, I had a feeling that Marcie and Ben’s day was going to be something extra special. Not only because it was their wedding day, but also because I know what a fun couple they are, how absolutely smitten they are with each other, and what a lovely venue they chose to get married at. Lingrow Farm boasts a renovated barn and farmhouse, friendly animals (oh, those horses!), a gazebo, pond, and a multitude of colorful flowers.
I walk into the farmhouse where Marcie is getting ready, and I hear her say “Hi, Leigh! Come in and grab a mimosa!” Immediately, she treats me like family because, well, that’s just who Marcie is. A generous person with a big heart. And as much as I like mimosas, I knew I had quite a few hours of photography ahead of me, so the mimosa had to wait for another day.
What I love most about Marcie and Ben’s wedding day was watching how much fun they had together. It was the little gestures and moments that made this wedding unique- the joyful laughter they had when they exchanged rings, the thumbs up they gave the camera after they said their vows, and the laughter that ensued when they had a few moments alone (but still caught on camera!) I love how they made each and every guest feel welcome and special throughout their wedding day. Like I said, BIG hearts.
Take a look to see what I mean…
No, these weren’t Marcie’s wedding shoes, just her garter on some really cool historic shoes used as décor in one of the getting ready rooms!
Sisters- how sweet are they?
I love this picture of Marcie and her ladies walking from the farmhouse to the barn for the ceremony…
The lovely backdrop of the ceremony…
This is exactly what I mean- fun, laughter, and merriment throughout the entire day!
Right as I was taking the picture below, I backed into a vehicle, flew feet up, and landed elbow first on the gravel! A super bloody elbow was worth the shot, though.
So this is a dream-
Best cake cutting sequence ever…
And a moonlight image for Marcie…
