From the beginning of their relationship, co-leading a summer running/ yoga group this couple have been inseparable since their first date and their wedding was no different. With no bridal party, just their sweet flower pup Zoe and her guide human Lily, the two enjoyed an Intimate Fall Wedding at Promise Ridge with absolutely no distractions or stress. Starting married life as they mean to go on, the couple spent the whole day together, assisting in getting each other ready and making sure they were both looking and feeling their best. With Jake proudly wearing his Grandfather’s pocket watch and Kim with her custom Mrs. wedding box, they faced the day together, just as they will now face every day of married life.
A small wedding doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on the things that mean the most to you. Kim and Jake prioritized their love for each other and made their day as stress-free as possible by making sure they put themselves and their loved ones first. The couple said ‘I do,’ in front of the stunning living wall at Promise Ridge, the perfect setting for their small and intimate ceremony.
Although they decided on a small ceremony, their day was still full of love and personality and as their photographer it was important I understood the couple and their connections with their families to ensure I captured their true personalities. You shouldn’t have to stress about your photographer on your big day, the right one will do their research about you as a couple to ensure they don’t miss a beat and help the day run smoothly!
The couple placed the focus of their day on the things that they value the most which included their attire, florals, venue, catering team, and the perfect photographer to capture the precious memories and smiling faces of those who mean the most to them. Sharing their special day and spending quality time with their loved ones was one of the couple’s main priorities so ensuring that they had a photographer who they could trust to capture this was essential to them. It was truly an honor to capture their beautiful wedding day story under their custom ketubah of the night sky.
Ensuring that I captured these sentimental elements of their Intimate Fall Wedding at Promise Ridge was made possible by the connection I established with the couple before the event. Numerous meetings and calls help a photographer to connect with the bride and groom on a personal level and this is why I always insist on extensive interaction between myself and the couple to get to know them on a profound and intimate level.
