Brookside Farms Wedding with Madison and Michael

I was so much looking forward to photographing a wedding at Brookside Farms last December and was elated when Madison and Michael booked me for theirs.  The grounds there are amazing and I had a ton of ideas flowing as far as photos.  Turns out, Old Man Winter had his own ideas about the day and turned the ENTIRE venue into an ice rink!!  Luckily Madison and Michael were some really chill clients and didn’t let inches thick ice deter them from enjoying their wedding day!  They even bravely slid out into the snow for a few outdoor photos between the ceremony and reception!

If you couldn’t guess, this couple was so lovely to work with and didn’t let a few shakeups in their day ruin their happiness!  All day they just kept looking at each other and smiling – which I found so sweet.

Thank you both so much for having me along on your day!

I loved Madison’s custom robe!Bride getting ready for wedding at Brookside Farms

Brookside Farms has a lovely suite for brides to get ready in and it had plenty of space for all of the ladies to get ready.

The final lady to get dressed was Madison and what a stunning bride she was!

There were a lot of hugs and love all day long.

Madison did a first look with her father and there were lots of happy tears.

Soon it was time to head over to the ceremony and Michael was all smiles when he saw Madison coming down the aisle.

While all the eyes were on Madison her eyes were on Michael.

I loved this old car that Madison’s parents had brought out for photos!

While Madison came prepared for snow and blustery cold there is not a lot of clothing that can overcome ice (but man that cloak is amazing!)  Luckily there was an iceless patch between the ceremony and reception buildings where we could do a few photos outside.

While they visited with their guests during the cocktail hour I captured a few details from the room.

They entered onto the dance floor and did their first dance immediately while everyone looked on and smiled.

After dinner the dancing continued with their parents.  I adored Madison’s father’s hat!  Ha!
