Maddie and Jackson had a gorgeous fall wedding at King Family Vineyards. This one was extra special to Anthony and I since we are lucky enough to call these two friends! Fun story: I did a mini session of Maddie and Jackson with their dog, Argo, a couple years back. I was convinced that Jackson was going to propose to Maddie at that session that I even made a bet with Anthony about it. Alas, he just didn’t have the ring yet, so I lost the bet! However, Jackson proposed a couple months later and they started their wedding planning journey.
The day started with the ladies getting ready in the bridal suite. The room was cozy and had plenty of light for their hair and makeup needs! During this time, Anthony and I did some detail shots, which included a great shot of Maddie’s dress. Her dress was quite a stunner! It had a beautiful fit and flare silhouette with an illusion neckline. It was perfect for her!
A bit later, the guys arrived and the day really started rolling. Before I knew it, it was time for the first look. Maddie and Jackson shared a private first look outside and moved onto portraits. Then, we focused on wedding party portraits and family portraits. Afterwards, it was time for the ceremony! The couple decided to have a private legal ceremony before their outdoor ceremony in front of their family and friends. This was really sweet to witness!
CEREMONY + RECEPTION
Immediately following the legal ceremony, we got ready for the outdoor ceremony, officiated by a friend. These two tied the knot (again) and recessed into a gorgeous golden cocktail hour. We took some sunset portraits where I got to see some friends and past clients (hey Lucy and Ben!). The weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed the late fall sunset. The views at King Family Vineyards never disappoint! The evening continued with a delicious Harvest Moon dinner, toasts, dessert and dancing. Fun fact: Maddie used to work at the Pie Chest, so they had a bunch of Pie Chest pies for guests to enjoy! Before we knew it, it was time for the sparkler exit. Congrats to Maddie and Jackson – we are so grateful to have been part of your King Family Vineyards fall wedding!
