Summer wedding at Chatfield Botanic Gardens

June 3, 2013

All of you longtime readers already know that I have a red hot love for weddings held at Chatfield Farms. I love all of it’s historic charm and the wide open fields next to wooded areas with pathways throughout. Allison and Matt must love it as well since they chose it for their wedding this past Sunday. It’s my first time back since last fall and it was nice to see it already full of flowers and bunny rabbits chasing each other around. These two gorgeous people wrote their own vows for each other that were so sweet and friends and family from as far as Connecticut and Iowa came out to witness their beautiful celebration. It may have been a little hot outside, but that really didn’t stop everyone from having a good time.

Allison & Matt,
Congratulations on such a lovely and laid back wedding day. Thanks for making my job really easy by being so photogenic and cute in front of the camera too:)
Hope you have the best honeymoon ever and we’ll be in touch when you get back!

I like how Matt and his groomsmen walked down the aisle all together. It’s like a springtime version of Reservoir Dogs!

Hard to pick a fave. But this is definitely up there:)
