plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


I have room in my heart for all kinds of weddings; The ones that go all out with detail and things to keep the guests entertained throughout the evening, and the ones that are simple, to the point, and a quiet celebration of love. Today’s wedding is one of the latter, and the sweet intimacy of it all really gets me. The florals and soft lighting are gorgeous, and the venue really made for a cozy feel. Suzanne and Stephen chose to walk down the aisle together, which speaks its own message.


From the Photographer:

This was a 2nd marriage ceremony for Suzanne and Stephen. It was an intimate, small wedding with close family and friends. Suzanne is a pastor and wrote the entire ceremony message and they each wrote their own vows. Having both gone through heartache and disappointment they both felt that God had finally brought them together to find happiness and true love. The gorgeous flowers and decor were provided by The Crimson Petal. Suzanne chose purple and blue for their summer wedding. Kelly with Crimson Petal did an amazing job and the venue looked beautiful. Suzanne wanted to go with a shabby chic look and Kelly nailed it. The ceremony was held at the Chaumette Chapel and the reception was held in the new barn at Chaumette. The chef at Chaumette cooked a wonderful meal outside the barn using a fire pit and brick oven. The couple and their guests enjoyed wine and laughs while watching the sun set over the gorgeous countryside.
