brett + josh – thorntown tree farm wedding

I got an e-mail from Brett almost two years ago.. I was only two sentences in & I knew I already loved her adorable self. It went along the lines of…. “I love your photos and we HAVE to have you at our wedding.” Before that she had told me a bit of their engagement, how they are both book lovers, and that their dream wedding was in the works. We met up a few months later for their engagement photos which you can see here. This July I met up with them again for the most perfect Summer weather imaginable & a storybook wedding. Josh’s face at their first look is still one of my favorites to date. So much joy. They were married under a willow at Dull’s Tree Farm surrounded my dear family & friends. It was perfection. The night was capped off by a freestyle to Salt-n-Pepa’s “Shoop” by the bride herself… See? I told you…perfection. Now, that’s my kind of wedding. Enjoy!

Dull’s Tree Farm is still one of the best places to shoot. A photographer’s dream. I had the privilege of meeting the owners and they are so very charming. I have to admire a family business that are doing it for the love of what it is. They were so involved in Brett & Josh’s day and you could tell they truly cared that it went off without a hitch – keeping an eye on things the entire night. Great people. Class act, and I can’t wait to work with them again.

Best bridal party EVER. No lie. They were all so very at ease with any and all directions I gave them. I know my fellow photographers won’t believe this but they knocked out every bit of their portraits in 20 minutes! They all got to be a part of the cocktail hour which I know so many people don’t get to be a part of. They brought their A-game and were on point! LOOOOVED all of them and so funny!

Love the photo above! The guys kneeling were shooting “craps” before they obliged me with a more photogenic pose. Ha.

The ceremony musicians were just unreal. I’ve never experienced anything like it, and I doubt I ever will again.

The popcorn idea on the bed of the truck was so unique and adorable.

Music was provided by Jared Wade. A real treat to work with, and kept the wedding party on their feet well into the night.
