Floral & Fruit Autumn Wedding : Diana & Lee

Friday weddings are my favorite. There’s something magical about getting married on a Friday; like the rest of the world is carrying on and you’ve carved out a little nook all your own. So when Diana & Lee hired me for their Friday wedding, I was excited not only because it was a Friday, but because some of my favorite vendors would be there, their color scheme and design style was going to be stunning, and Diana & Lee themselves are so sweet and I knew they’d be so fun to work with.

Their engagement session just a few months ago was hot and humid (and buggy!), but their wedding was a gorgeous fall day with perfect weather. The day started out overcast (which was beautiful for photos!), but the sun came beaming right during their ceremony and cast it’s glorious warm light all over them as they vowed their love to each other.

When Lee proposed to Diana and they started looking for a wedding date, Lee suggested a wedding this fall, which in wedding terms would be a quick engagement season, but he had a point when he told Diana that he loves her and wants to marry her and, well, why wait? They quickly pulled Jennifer of Harper Hadley Events into the planning equation and she took the reins on helping them bring their vision to life. Diana wanted lots of rich, fall colors, but she also wanted to pull in some food elements into the design. Shelly of Shelly Sarver Designs was the perfect choice to make this happen and the incorporation of grapes and pomegranates and pears and apples made each centerpiece a beautiful creation!

We were on a really tight timeline to start the day so I was extra grateful to be able to split up detail tasks with my second shooter, Summer. We got so much photographed in a short period of time and I had never been so proud of us!

Diana & Lee shared a first look out at Terry Trueblood Park, where they would later say their vows and dance their first dance. The way they beamed all day long was so heartwarming and beautiful.

It was so special to have some of Diana’s Ecuadorian heritage incorporated into their wedding, including these scarves for the guests for their outdoor ceremony, the authentic Ecuadorian food (which was so delicious!), and best of all, some of her relatives who made the trip!!
