And here we are at Kara and Jeremy’s wedding day - May 4th, 2019. The perfect day for Star Wars fans wedding as K+J are. It was the perfect spring day weather and the perfect venue for their rustic wedding. I was so lucky again to shoot at my favorite outdoor country venue - Mountain House Estate. I like it because I can cover both bride and groom getting ready - everything is in one location - ceremony, cocktail, and reception. Also, the venue has different settings for photography, where I can play with any light at any time of the day.
The ceremony was under the big oak tree where we were able to take group photos after the official part. The cocktail hour was in the lawn and the reception in the patio, followed by the dancing part inside the main house of the estate. Everything was so emotional the whole day and evening.
The most impressive thing about Kara and Jeremy’s wedding planning was the DIY handmade objects that Jeremy made all by himself especially for the wedding. Things such as the Groomsmen Boxes, the Wedding Hashtag Sign, the Corn Hole Boards, the Giant Jenga, the Seating Chart and the Card Box and the Chalkboard Signs on Dessert Table with collaboration with his sister and dad. Everything was very creative and arranged in a Star Wars theme. Witnessing his fine detailed work that day and Kara’s calm attention to every detail during the planning process made me realize the dedication and affection to one another they have.
The rustic wedding decor was beautiful, elegant and chic, touched with subtle simplicity with the help of their wedding planner Lacey Davis from Stacey Goods Farm and Events who I had the pleasure to work with again at another epic wedding day. The rustic elements of the wedding were also part of Kara’s hairstyle. The Star Wars theme was very subtle as well as it appeared in some keepsakes such as Star Wars Toasting Flutes and Glass Cannons, man’s accessories such as Jeremy’s Star Wars Watch and Bow Tie, and Star Wars Socks, and some of the signs such as the Star Wars Welcome Sign and the Star Wars Seating Chart.
It was a very special day for two people who were meant to be together.
