bridget + morgan | hermitage hill farm + stables wedding

hermitage-hill-farm-and-stables-wedding-photos

Ahhh, I am SO excited to be sharing this wedding day with y’all today!  Bridget and Morgan are genuinely two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and I have so enjoyed being part of this sweet season with them!  They are both incredibly gracious and kind, and they share a sense of humor that makes each moment together that much more enjoyable!

Bridget + Morgan’s wedding day was filled to the brim with laughter and with the sweetest tears – and if you ask me, that speaks volumes about this precious bride and groom, and about their friends and family who were there to celebrate with them.  It was so easy to see how much those relationships are treasured, and it made every moment of this wedding day one to remember.  From the sweetest looks between Bridget and her mom, sister, and bridesmaids during the getting ready part of the day, to Bridget + Morgan’s tender first look, their exchange of their handwritten vows, and those joyful first moments as husband + wife, this wedding day was 100% heartfelt from beginning to end, and it was such a privilege to be part of it!

Bridget, Morgan, thank you for inviting me into this season of life with y’all.  I hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day through some of my favorite images!!  🙂

I LOVED Bridget’s dress, and the beautiful blue color of her girls’ dresses!  (plus, y’all, these florals by The Faded Poppy?!  all. the. heart. eyes!)

I loved their invitation suite and Bridget’s simple, classy bridal details too!!!

Bridget shared the sweetest first look with her dad!

It all becomes real when it’s time for the First Look!  I love this in-between shot of Bridget and her sister, Kati, just moments before Morgan saw his bride for the first time!

 

And then it was portrait time!  And y’all, these two.  I. can’t. EVEN.

This next one is another of my favorites – I love how natural this moment feels (plus, let’s be real, Bridget’s veil picking up in the wind is sort of magical).

Loved their cake topper!

We slipped out just as the sun was setting for a few last bride + groom photos and they were SO worth it!!

At their engagement session, Morgan snuck in little nose + forehead kisses every chance he got, so it was only fitting that we captured a few of those on their wedding day, too!

I’m so thankful Bridget and Morgan were OK with venturing out into this field!  Anyone else think this super tall grass is MAGICAL?!
