Congratulations, Alice and Justin!! Their gorgeous fall Orchard at Hayes Farm wedding day was so special and just beautiful. Despite a surprisingly warm day, their day was full of happiness and lots of beautiful moments with their families celebrating. It was nice to see both Alice and Justin, as well as their girls again. When we photographed them for their engagement session at the Orchard, we knew immediately we’d be waiting impatiently for their fall wedding!
The Orchard at Hayes Farm Wedding
When we arrived to begin photographing Alice getting ready, it was clear that she was SO excited to be getting married. She finished getting ready before having a sweet first look with her father. Those first looks are always super emotional! When they were finished, it was time for Alice to meet Justin. They decided on a first look, which we’re grateful for. It gave us extra time for portraits at the Orchard. You’re missing out if you’ve never photographed an orchard in the fall. The Orchard at Hayes Farm is a working Satsuma Orchard. When the fruit is ready to harvest the inside of the venue turns into a large space to clean/sort fruit! After more portraits together with their dogs and their girls, it was time for their ceremony.
Alice and Justin LOVE their family. Truly, more than anyone we’ve ever met. During their wedding ceremony, not only did they exchange vows with each other but they also exchanged vows as a family. It was emotional and honestly, it was hard to find a dry eye in the room. There’s something really beautiful about finding a way to include your family in your wedding ceremony. Every story is unique and worth including.
After their ceremony, it was time for the party! With a live band keeping the dance floor busy, Alice and Justin enjoyed celebrating with their guests. It was a great evening for all of them!! The night ended with a fun sparkler exit to send the newlyweds off. Congratulations again, Alice and Justin! Your day was SO beautiful and we’re honored we could capture your family’s newest chapter.
