Catherine + Tim’s Spring King Family Vineyards Wedding


Sunshine, outdoor vows, and greenery galore? Catherine + Tim’s spring King Family Vineyards wedding was one for the books. From Catherine’s gorgeous smile and bright eyes to seeing this couple so in love on their wedding day, we were ecstatic to part of something so special. Now, thanks to Aaron Watson Photography, we get to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Of course, we can’t deny that working with Catherine was our favorite part of the day. This bride’s sweet smile made our job so easy. For her bridal makeup look, we went a bit more glam and highlighted Catherine’s stunning eyes (seriously, they’re gorgeous). We lined her eyes and went a bit smokier with the look before adding a nude lip. For her hair, we kept it soft and romantic with loose curls.

We’re so excited to showcase some of our favorite moments from Catherine + Tim’s spring King Family Vineyards wedding and continue celebrating this beautiful couple.

Rachel + Nick’s Summer King Family Vineyards Wedding

R+N Portraits-105

If winter weather is getting you down, we have a dose of summer on the blog for you today. Rachel + Nick’s summer King Family Vineyards wedding is the perfect way to remember that flowers will bloom again, the sun will shine, and a couple in love is always in season. Rachel + Nick’s big day was as romantic as they come. From Rachel’s gorgeous smile to she and Nick’s sweet first look,  this pair was basically glowing on their wedding day, and we were so happy to be a small part of it.

Of course, if we’re going to talk about a glow, we have to talk about our glowing bride. For Rachel, it was all about her wonderful smile and those beautiful eyes. We made sure that her eyes were the focal point of her look, defining them with liner and lashes. For her lips, we kept the color neutral so that her eyes stood out even more. Finally, for her hair, we swept it into a half-up, half-down style with romantic curls framing her face. The result? A glowing bride we just couldn’t get enough of.

We were so happy to help Rachel feel beautiful during her summer King Family Vineyards wedding and can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments with you.

Amanda + Robert’s Romantic Fall Castle Hill Cider Wedding

View More:

Rich, deep hues, a stunningly beautiful bride, and the crisp air of autumn? Yes, Amanda + Robert’s romantic fall Castle Hill Cider wedding was everything you’d want in a big day as the weather cools down. With beautiful details, a sweet couple, and the perfect vows, we’re so in love with their special day.

For Amanda’s wedding, we decided to make sure her stunning features were the stand-out element of her look. To do so, we pulled all of her vibrant red locks away from her face and secured them in a classic but slightly loose bun. For her makeup, we made things neutral but added just a hint of smoky details to the outer corners of her eyes. Of course, we had to let her beautiful fair skin be the real star, though, and kept her makeup natural.

Plus, if we didn’t already know that we are in love with the bride, we would be after seeing the remaining images of she and Robert’s wedding. The mix of warm burgundy and orange with sky blue was the perfect blend of warm and cool tones, and we love the hint of rustic romance afforded by their beautiful venue.

Clearly, we can’t get enough of this Caste Hill Cider wedding, and we think you’ll be just as smitten with Amanda + Robert’s wedding day as we are.

Lucie + Nick’s Classic Mount Ida Farm Wedding


There’s something about a fresh, white palette and classic florals that will always make hearts aflutter. That’s certainly the case with Lucie + Nick’s classic Mount Ida Farm wedding. This beautiful couple’s rustic meets classic feté was filled with sweet, intimate moments, stunning details, and southern tradition (hello, buried bourbon).

For her wedding day, Lucie looked absolutely breathtaking in her lace gown. We kept her hair soft and romantic in a half up, half down style with a jeweled clasp holding back her dark locks. As for her makeup, the eyes have it. We subtly smoked out her outer corner but kept her lid bright to keep her eyes looking bright and awake. With a smokier eye look, we chose to keep her lips sweet and subtle with a bit of pink gloss.

Lucie shone throughout her big day as she and Nick said their vows and celebrated with friends. From the classic tradition of burying the bourbon to a romantic, al fresco ceremony, and classic reception, this pair’s Mount Ida Farm wedding was one for the books.

Erika + Eric’s Romantic Pippin Hill Wedding


What do you get when you add cool tones, romantic florals, one gorgeously fluffy dog, and family + friend involvement? A wedding to remember. Erika + Eric’s stunningly romantic Pippin Hill wedding may just be one of our all time favorites (though, really, they’re all our favorites). From the soft purple hues to the sunset ceremony, the big day’s got everything you could want.

One detail we can’t get over, though? The bride herself. Erika glowed on her wedding day with her blonde locks softly curled and pulled back from her face. With greenery woven in to her tresses, we kept things ultra-romantic for her vineyard first look and al fresco ceremony. For her makeup, we chose to keep things glowy and made sure Erika was radiant with a lit from within beauty.

While Erika may have been the star of the show (alongside Eric, of course), the other details we love are how this couple’s family and friends helped makeup their wedding so special. With family friends providing music for the ceremony, the bride’s aunt providing the perfect jewelry, the cookie table crafted by guests, and photographs by friend Jeremy Salapek, the love could seriously be felt from beginning to end.

We are so excited to showcase Erika + Eric’s Pippin Hill wedding with beautiful photos from Jeremy Salapek.
