By far, the best part about being wedding photographers is being able to be a part of someone’s favorite day. We adore our couples and have the best time getting to know them during their engagement session. As we communicate through the weeks leading up to their wedding, we form real friendships with our couples and so, our couples weddings are so special to us! When we arrived to Meadowbrook Farm Bed & Breakfast in Suffolk, VA, we were immediately greeted with hugs from both the bride and groom. Ally & Kyle are so kind and genuine that we felt like family the entire day. Ally had no stress, even as their little girl ran around her feet and called her name throughout their getting ready cottage. We can’t say enough wonderful things about this lovely couple and their family. We are truly blessed we got to be a part of their special day!
After nearly an entire month of rain, we were all holding our breath, watching our weather apps and praying that Saturday would be clear so that we could at LEAST run outside for some portraits. Well, their angels up in heaven heard their prayers because Ally & Kyle were able to have their outdoor wedding they hoped for on the lawn of Meadowbrook Farm. Surrounded by friends and family, Ally & Kyle exchanged vows under a lush green tree and the rain held off the entire day. What a blessing!
Following their ceremony, Ally & Kyle rejoined their family and friends as husband and wife and danced the night away, under the glow of white lights strung around the rustic barn. Their beautiful reception details were perfectly placed and their theme was so exactly the right fit for the new Mr. & Mrs. Shipman. Country music played and friends and family danced and laughed through the night. If we had to pick one word to describe this darling couples’ wedding, it would be “joy.”
We are still swooning over all of their images, but without further adieu, take a look at Ally & Kyle’s beautiful rustic wedding!
