Oh man… I knew from the moment I met Mike & Judy that this gorgeous summer wedding at London Town and Gardens was going to be a really special one. I feel like that for every wedding I shoot, but something about Mike and Judy made me sure that their wedding day was going to be all about not only the love they share, but also about the unconditional love that bonds a family together. These two got married on Father’s Day and even though it was one of the hottest days of the year, everyone was ALL smiles the entire day.
The sweetest moment of this wedding was not only witnessing the way these two look at each other (seriously the sweetest, just wait until you see the pictures below!), but also happened when the DJ announce a Father Daughter dance for everyone to join in on. It was truly just like Mike & Judy to include their guests in this special wedding reception tradition, and as I snapped away with tears welling up in my eyes, I couldn’t help but think of how special these pictures would be 10, 20, 50 years down the road.
This Father’s Day wedding was just FULL of heart! From the tearful First Look to guests hanging out and playing corn hole for hours on end with the stunning Historic London Town and Gardens as their backdrop, Mike and Judy had such a beautiful day… and I’m so excited to share these images!! :)
With all this gorgeous aqua blue to work with during detail shots… I was in HEAVEN!!
LOVED Judy’s shoes for the day…! :)
Your hair… that dress… one stunning bride.
Time for the FIRST LOOK!
Yep. I totally cried. What a REACTION to seeing his bride…
Just absolutely gorgeous!!
The JOY! I hope I look this radiant when I walk down the aisle!
And then after the first kiss, they just looked at each other and laughed because they were just that full of excitement/”we’re actually really married” feels.
SO many cocktail hour details around the grounds…! Everything was summery and perfect.
The dinner reception took place under a tent off the back of the venue and it was stunningly elegant.
And then it was time for more bride and groom portraits, this time down by the water!
Time to celebrate!!!
Mike & Judy, thank you SO much for having me alongside you during one of the most special days of your life together… it was an honor to be a part of it!
