This Hillside Estate Wedding is the sort of things dreams are made of. It’s like the warm and fuzzy feelings of a Hallmark movie mixed with the style and luxury of a bougie hotel. No wonder Caroline and Daniel picked this venue to start their marriage together.

Did you see that precious bible in the bride’s hands? That is a very vintage bible and family heirloom. What a special idea to have her carry it with her bouquet down the aisle. Up next, we have the most wonderful flower girl, who did her job perfectly in preparing our hearts for the bride’s entrance.

This Hillside Estate Wedding Ceremony is set in truly a beautiful chapel. The all-white chapel has so much natural light that it overpowers the chandeliers (that’s a good thing because they cast orange light). I set up this shot above so you could see the nature outside the chapel as well. Isn’t it gorgeous in the spring?

And here we go with the first kiss as husband and wife. Oh… so…. special!

Then it was time for some family and wedding party portraits. It’s an important part of every wedding day, as it commemorates who was there at the wedding and who your closest friends and family are. I always imagine looking back in 20 years at who was in these photographs. They aren’t the most artsy, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t important. And then for this next little gallery, the ushers demanded (in a fun way) that they be allowed to take a photo with the bride. I told them they could {respectfully} do whatever they wanted in the photo. This one is a keeper for sure…

I think that is a great shot to end on, lol. Tomorrow I’ll share the reception story with you, so come check it out! Oh, and if you’re looking for the getting ready for the wedding post, here you go!

Talk to you soon,
Dale
