today’s love story:
Steve & Karen’s Salem Cross Inn Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
Karen & Steve’s Salem Cross Inn Wedding was such an incredibly happy event filled with warmth, love and pretty flowers. They chose the perfect Sunday afternoon for their wedding – the ceremony was outdoors in front of Salem Cross Inn’s gazebo and beautiful gardens, followed by hayrides for all before heading in to the barn for dinner and dancing. Here are some of my favorite moments from their wedding day.
Salem Cross Inn created all of the bouquets and floral arrangements using flowers grown on their land. Karen loves flowers, and created a beautiful flower wedding theme for the wedding which extended from the beautiful floral overlay on her light pink gown (how gorgeous is her gown?!), to her jewelry to the place cards which were written on plantable flower-seed paper.
Karen was absolutely radiant, and I don’t think I caught her for a moment without a smile.
I love (and have photographed!) so many from this wonderful family (including bridesmaid and flower girl here), so it was such an honor and a pleasure to capture Karen & Steve’s wedding. Her son’s walked her down the aisle, and Steve’s son Chris (you can see his wedding to Libby here) stood with him as his best man.
I love Steve’s expression as he watches Karen approach.
So so happy! I can’t help but smile the every time I look at their pictures.
Wedding party hayride!
I love the rustic feel of the barn at Salem Cross Inn, where Karen & Steve’s wedding reception was.
Steve’s expression in this next picture pretty much sums up why I love photographing weddings. Pure happiness and love.
As a special treat for their guests, Steve & Karen invited their guests up for homemade apple crisp, with a special dollup of whipped cream.
Karen has so many amazing girlfriends. I loved hearing about her different groups of friends, and why they mean so much to her. This wedding day was filled with so much love and support. Congratulations to Karen & Steve!
