Mr. and Mrs. Payton
Brooke and Anthony are MARRIED! And they had the most perfect, beautiful spring weather for a wedding at the Barn at Valhalla. There was not a cloud in sight, the weather was warm and the these two and their families were nothing but an absolute joy to be around. I love when bridal parties and guests welcome me into the day as one of their own! This group was nothing but smiles all day 🙂
The Barn at Valhalla was a stunning wedding venue to photograph. The full floor to ceiling windows casted natural light throughout the getting ready area, the game room lounge downstairs provided for a fun setting to relax and the reception area was cute and perfect for their guests to party! Rolling hills and fields were just steps away and provided a stunning backdrop for sunset portraits. They were so dreamy that I squealed with excitement in the moment. They were perfection!
Want to know one thing that really made my heart smile? Okay, there are many things but here’s one of them! When I sent sneak peeks to Brooke the following day, her first post on Instagram was a thank you note to everyone who helped them in their wedding planning process. I read it and got all teary. She’s a bride with a heart of gold. So sweet!
I hope everyone enjoys some of my favorites photos of their wedding day below!
Brooke and Anthony — thank you both for trusting me to capture your wedding day! Your love story and your love for each other was so beautiful. It was evident from our very first consult that your marriage was going to be nothing short of wonderful! I hope we can get our goldendoodles together one day and share tacos before you move! Congratulations to you both again <3
Lots of love,
