Andrea and Dom…I don’t even know where to begin with these two. They are two extraordinary people and we were so incredibly lucky to be able to capture their sweet marriage at the Farmer and Frenchman in Henderson, Kentucky!!
I remember shooting their magical engagement session in Chicago, Illinois so vividly! They were the center of attention during that session with not only us, but all the bystanders! It was the perfect session so we were so excited to hop into their wedding day! We just knew with every ounce of our being that their wedding day was going to be P-E-R-F-E-C-T and we definitely weren’t let down!!
We met the morning of the wedding at Andrea’s parents’ house where the bridesmaids were full of giggles. I was also super pumped to see that their sweet pup, Frank, was also hanging out with the girls that morning. Frank made an appearance at their engagement session, so naturally he was included in their wedding plans, as well (and we were SO EXCITED!!) He spent the morning taking in all the sights as the girls got ready! It was truly magical watching Andrea being transformed into a beautiful bride! There was the absolute best vibe in the air that day and we couldn’t wait to get Andrea to her groom!! EEEK — all the feels!!
We met up with Dom and his guys at Farmer and Frenchman and the two shared their first look as soon as Andrea arrived on property out in the vineyard! A big storm was rolling into the area (Mother Nature was not kind that Saturday), but it was almost as if time stood still in that moment and the storms seemed to pause during their first look! The feeling of being in each others arms before the wedding was so exciting and exhilarating for them! Their excitement is one of the main reasons that we HIGHLY recommend a first look!!
Now to race the storm for some dreamy photos out in the vineyard!! Rain was making its way into the area SOO fast…BUT, that rain was no match for Andrea, though! She was fearless and determined to get some photos knocked out!! We put on our game faces and knocked out so many photos in record time!! We ended up timing it perfectly and finishing up as soon as a monsoon started! We were so stinking lucky to have dodged all the rain drops in between all the portraits. Everyone in the bridal party were such troopers and they were determined to have a great day rain or shine! Everyone was just so excited for Andrea and Dom and their perfect day!!
Due to the weather, their ceremony was moved from outside into the barn. The Farmer and Frenchman has dreamy, magnificent barn full of charm!! It was the perfect cozy atmosphere as they tied the knot surrounded by their family and friends! The ceremony was standing room only with the most beautiful and intimate vibe! It felt as if everyone was a part of the magic and the ceremony was incredibly sweet!
After Andrea and Dom were officially married, there was a clearing in the forecast for their family photos outside and some of the most exquisite photos with Frank. They ended up dancing the night away and indulging on some delicious food! It was an incredible party to end the night as husband and wife! Andrea & Dom, we are so stinking happy for the two of you and cannot wait to see what the future holds for you!!
