Hillary & Andrew | Disney-Inspired Outdoor Wedding at Carriage Trail Farm
Wedding: 28 September 2019 | Posted: 21 January 2020
Some wedding days, we fit right in: we vibe with the wedding party, we know and love the vendors, everybody's on the same page, and slide right in effortlessly. Other wedding days, though, we get to feel like family, and, well, those are the best.
Hillary & Andrew's wedding day, obviously, was one such. We photographed Hillary's sister Elizabeth's wedding back in 2015 (what?!), we grew close, we've hung out, we know the family. Hillary's dad is our second dad whenever we're around. It gives us that extra degree of trust and personal investment that can make a wedding day—and its resulting images—feel almost as full of our hearts as the couple's.
Needless to say, then, there are a lot of photos here that rank among our favorites from the year. Hillary is someone who laughs all the time; Andrew, though a bit more quiet, is her equal in intensity of feeling. (His First Look reaction is one of the most adorable I've ever seen!) She giggled her way through their First Look, their couple's and wedding party portraits, and down the aisle; Andrew's grin could have split his face in two. What perhaps deserves the most highlighting, though, is not just the bridesmaids' incredible Disney-Abba-fusion musical toast, but Hillary's reactions, cycling through shock, awe, tears, and laughter multiple times throughout the song.
We are so grateful that Hillary & Andrew trusted us to capture these amazing memories for them; we're grateful to have been a part o the family, even for a short time; and we wish them every imaginable happiness in their marriage and in life. Wish them well in the comments, and enjoy a selection of our favorite images from the day below!
