Adriana & Mac’s Wedding!

Happy Friday, friends!  I can’t believe I am ending my 2019 weddings this weekend, wow!!  It’s been great looking back on these fall weddings that have been so beautiful and filled with so many great clients :)

One wedding I have loved from this past month was Adriana and Mac’s!  These two are literally SO much fun and so easygoing, such a joy to be a part of their day!!  And it was SUCH a perfect fall day!  When I arrived at Owera Vineyards, Adriana was there with all her bridesmaids.  I had so much fun capturing her gorgeous dress and details against the textures of Owera – her florals by Spruce Ridge were just beautiful!  When it came time for Adriana to get dressed, her mom and cousin helped her, and you could tell how close she was to both of them!  Adriana looked just stunning!  She had some teary moments with her mom, and opening her gift (bracelet) from Mac!  Then, her bridesmaids waited for her outside and when they saw her that was so sweet too!  More sweet moments!  We took portraits in the vineyards with all the girls, away from the guys who were taking portraits and having fun at the Tasting Room on the other side of the property!  As the guests started arriving, we snuck in a first look with Adriana and her dad back in the tent, and you could feel the love!

Mac waited for his bride at the altar outside under the pergola.  He had such a happy face as his bride walked toward him with her dad.  They had such a sweet ceremony performed by Mac’s grandpa, and then they were MARRIED!  I loved seeing the joy between them in those just-married moments walking down the aisle, so priceless!!  After we took family photographs, we gathered their bridal party (20 people!!) to take photographs outside in the vineyards.  Let’s just say they had some ENERGY!  You could tell how loved Adriana and Mac are!  After the portraits were done, the bridal party gathered around them, like on the dance floor, and started pounding the air celebrating!  I’ve never seen anything like that before, so I got on a chair to capture those moments!  Then, the energy calmed a bit and we took photographs of just Adriana and Mac in the vineyard together.  They had such sweet moments together and the light was just PERFECT!

As cocktail hour finished outside, their guests gathered in the tent – and it was PACKED in there!  Owera at max capacity, I love it!  Adriana and Mac entered as the new Mr. & Mrs. Johnson as all of their guests waved their napkins in the air!  They did a sweet first dance, and then each danced with their parent for parent dances.  Then, Adriana’s cousin and Mac’s brother gave some sweet (and funny) toasts.  The long table in the middle for them and all their closest friends was the coolest ever, perfect as everyone toasted with their champagne glasses!  Then, the party got started with dancing!  They had such a fun night with their band, which included one of their band members performing a chainsaw noise before the end of the night (you had to be there!)  They also took a class reunion photo with all of their friends from St. Lawrence University.  Adriana and Mac cut their cake, specialty popcorn was served, and we took some beautiful night portraits outside in the vines and beneath the Owera building all lit up.  A perfect way to end their evening!

I had SUCH a fun time capturing these two, and wish them every joy and happiness in their life together!  I hope Adriana and Mac’s story inspires your weekend!!  Here’s to the last one of wedding season!
