A Night Ceremony at Farrar Hill Farms

April 28, 2016


We have been waiting for Jaqui and Jason’s wedding for over a year. Last spring we photographed their gorgeous engagement session, which has been featured on several wedding blogs, at their wedding venue. So, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of their wedding date since! Plus, the fact that the two of them just absolutely rock made us all the more excited to spend their wedding day with them!

When we first met with them, Jaqui was explaining to us her vision of a nighttime ceremony with lights strung up everywhere. It sounded like an absolute fairytale. And when we saw it on the wedding day it was absolutely breathtaking!IvoryDoorStudio_FarrarHillFarms_NightWedding_JASON+JAQUI-0020

One of the best parts about having this evening ceremony was that Jaqui and Jason were able to spend most of their wedding day together. Which sounds kind of crazy, right? It’s surprising actually that most couples only see each other for a few hours on their wedding day. Each of them had plenty of time to spend with their wedding party, they had time to relax and get ready exchange gifts all before your first look.

We photographed all of their bridal party, all of their family portraits, and everything else that is typically done after the ceremony well before their guests arrived. Which then allowed them spend the entire evening and reception together and with their friends and family.

Speaking of their bridal party, it was so wonderful seeing so many of our past grooms in Jason’s wedding party. Both Scott and Ethan were a part of their wedding day, and both of their wives were at the wedding too. In fact, Ethan’s wife Ashley helped to coordinate the wedding. She did a fantastic job, the bridesmaids could not stop raving about her!

They chose to have a first look and it was the best decision ever. Combined with their evening ceremony, Jaqui and Jason were able to have short portrait sessions throughout the day. After the first look we spent a few minutes with them during the day time doing photos of just the two of them. Shortly before sunset we took them back out for photos during the golden hour. Jaqui is absolutely obsessed with golden hour photos and so are we, so we were thrilled that they wanted to do for couples portraits then too.

Before the ceremony, they had dinner ready for their guests. Jaqui stayed hidden but enjoyed dinner with Jason outside in a gazebo near the lake. Is that not the most perfect idea ever? What a sweet and intimate date together before becoming husband & wife!
