I totally jinxed myself. I’ve been boasting how lucky I’ve been with the weather and weddings this year. Steele & Andrea’s day was projected to be AMAZING. Which was great since we really wanted to get these farmers outside for their portraits. Low and behold, as I’m driving to Shelbyville to the gorgeous Spruce Street, I reveled in the perfect cloud cover we have. Bright sun and afternoon pictures don’t combine terribly well, so the clouds were amazing. Fast forward two hours: rain. Luckily, the rain did not disrupt the day too terribly.
Andrea & Steele originally had plans to go to the family farm for their portraits (check out the engagement session that was on the farm). Since the timeline wouldn’t allow it, we ended up on the fairgrounds in Shelbyville to shoot the bridal portraits. Amazingly, it had everything we needed for perfect pictures, and we had the go ahead to wander around and get all the pictures they envisioned on their wedding day. The rain literally started as we wrapped up, so timing could not have worked better.
While they aren’t all here on the blog, the details that went into this wedding represented the couple so well. From the tables names, the types of flowers selected, to the pies in lieu of cake, it was so well put together. Every time you turned around, there was another element that tied the day together beautifully.
I hope you two enjoy your images and re-live your wedding day for years to come through the pictures. Look for them in the mail next week! I can’t wait to hear what you think of them!
