Jessica and Aaron had such a lovely intimate Swiftwater Cellars Elopement with just their closest friends and family present. I have absolutely adored getting to know these two over the past year. I met Jessie and Aaron when they responded to a model call for a styled elopement shoot that I was putting together at Wahclella Falls. I instantly knew via photos and our communication that they would be the perfect fit and such a fun couple. And sure enough, they were amazing and I adored every minute of getting to know them throughout our adventure that day. And so when I got an email from Jessica earlier this year that they were planning their real elopement, I could not be more ecstatic that they wanted to book me! And their day proved to be even more then I could have imagined. We started with getting ready with the girls in a nearby cabin and it was such a fun and casual environment with Jessica doing her own hair and makeup and lots of giggles and selfies being taken on cell phones. From there I headed over to The Lodge to photograph the guys getting ready with the grooms parents where we spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out how to make the perfect pocket square.
After that we headed over to Swiftwater Cellars for Jessica to have a first look with her dad and brother before her grand entrance into their intimate ceremony. I adored their ceremony. Their parents shared advice and love, the couple both read special words to one another as well as vows and it could not have been more amazing and full of tears throughout. We then celebrated briefly with champagne before starting all the formal photos. And then we were off to appetizers, cocktails and dinner!
I hope you enjoy a sneak preview into their amazing day.
