From the moment we stepped foot on the lawn at Greencrest we were greeted with endless beauty. Sounds of birds in the treeline, pops of color from the meticulously maintained gardens and the team joyously buzzing about preparing for the day. What a gorgeous place to be.
Julianna was a stunning bride. Just absolutely stunning.
I think this portrait will forever be a favorite.
This invitation suite was so lovely. The hand-painted watercolor of the venue was one of my favorite wedding day details.
Immediately before the ceremony, David and Julianna had a private first look where they read their private vows. It was seriously the best part of the day. The nerves and the emotions were still there and their reactions were forever priceless.
This ceremony setup may be my most favorite ever. The floral masterpieces lining the aisle with the manor in the background. It felt grand yet intimate, classic yet comfortable.
Sweet parasols to help with the sun that kept popping out.
The new Mr & Mrs!
After the ceremony, they went indoors to soak up a few minutes of air conditioning before being introduced to their guests on the back patio. I love these portraits on the grand staircase.
The back patio was such a beautiful place for an intimate celebration and champagne toast.
These sweet butterfly name cards for the seating chart may have been one of my favorite details.
Butterflies are special to Julianna. Her mother, Layla, gave her the nickname of “her little butterfly” ever since she was little so they were included throughout the day.
After their first dance, champagne and dessert, we took photos with their getaway car, a 1984 Mercedes, and photos in the gardens with gorgeous light.
It is absolutely stunning in the back yard with gardens lush and full of beautiful flowers.
This photo of Julianna is amazing. Wow, you are beautiful.
David & Julianna – thank you SO much for trusting me with these precious images. I had such a fun time taking them at one of the most beautiful venues ever. I pray that you’ll enjoy these for years and years to come!
xoxo – Kellie
