PRE-WEDDING

Though we wished the rain away, it began to mist as we pulled up to Glen Ellen Farm. We arrived early, just in time to unpack our gear at the estate house on site. The bride and her bridesmaids pulled up in a limousine van dressed in their robes. They shuffled inside to avoid the rain and finished getting ready upstairs. As the boys arrived, excitement began to build and it became all the more real that the two were about to be wed.

CEREMONY

The rain, still a mist, persisted. The wedding team quickly set up chairs within the tent for close family members and opened up the flaps to expose the gorgeous landscape of the venue. While it wasn’t the original vision-the ceremony would take place inside. All worries of where the two would wed soon washed away as Shelby approached Taylor in the aisle. It was a beautiful ceremony and the pair sealed it with a kiss below the tent that would house the reception following.

PARTY TIME

Shelby and Taylor were both extremely excited about the grounds at Glen Ellen Farm. Sacrificing their dream photos was simply not an option. The family met us back at the estate house, which they kindly let us use for formals after the ceremony. Once those were wrapped up, we embraced the rain. Starting on the porch and making our way across the yards back to the tent, we took some gorgeous shots of the newlyweds and their bridal party. A little rain couldn’t hold us back!

Once we were finished up, Taylor and Shelby kicked the party off in style. With two different interactive dinner stations, an open bar, and a doughnut display for dessert-there was so much for guests to enjoy. While this was one of my colder weather weddings this year, the thoughtfulness didn’t stop. The couple prepared guests with embroidered blankets as favors so they could get wrapped up and enjoy. Those who weren’t cuddling in throws were throwing down on the dance floor all night long!

FIVE FUN FACTS

  1. While Taylor and Shelby met during high school in 2010, they still met online! The pair shared a Skype session and never looked back.
  2. Their puppy Zoe was not in attendance at the wedding, but she DID make an appearance at their engagement session last Winter!
  3. If the pair could have invited any celebrity duo to their wedding reception, they would have invited Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson so they could recreate “Wedding Crashers” moments.
  4. Shelby and Taylor love cooking together, sneaking in a slow dance for no reason, and snoozing on the couch.
  5. The newlyweds ended their evening with “The Time Of My Life” Dirty Dancing style. AND-They nailed it!
