Andrea & Bo ~ Wedding at TCB Farm Lancaster, Ohio
When I got a wedding inquiry from Andrea I realized we lived in the same tiny little village. And then I discovered that we are nearly neighbors, living behind each other, only a few houses down. It was meant to be.
You might remember Andrea and Bo's engagement session. It was one of my all time favorites (see the blog post here if you don't remember). They chose Bo's family farm to have their engagement photos and shooting somewhere so personal for the couple is what really makes it their photos. I advise brides to incorporate as much of themselves as they can into their wedding and it was perfect. If you did go back to revisit that session, you will have read that we waited for quite a while for the sun to come out, and it did eventually, but I felt like God was saving the beautiful light for their wedding day. And He did not disappoint.
The Finney's wedding at TCB Farm was perfect and full of light and love.. and these are a few of my favorite things...
Everything about this wedding was personal. Andrea and Bo are outdoorsmen... and er.. woman.. and they incorporated that theme into their wedding beautifully, from their wedding invitations to the handles on a desk that Bo refinished and carved for Andrea. Their officiant told their love story as if it were poetry. Bo could hardly make eye contact with Andrea, his eyes filled with the happiest of tears as she came gracefully down the aisle to him. There was more than one moment I was grateful to have had a camera in my hand as a distraction and in front of my eyes, to hide my own tearing up. The way the light poured in from three tiny little windows in the barn wall made it feel like the brightest of cathedrals and their love made the light even brighter and infinitely warm.
Every wedding I shoot finds a place in my memories but as you might be able to tell from my description, this one lives in a special place in my heart.
