Margaret & Ben

In March, we were lucky enough to be out at Sweetwater Branch Inn twice! Margaret & Ben got married there and I'm so excited to share with you some special images from their day! We had a great time planning with them long distance, since they planned everything from up north, where they live. 

All the memories were captured by Kristin Kozelsky and they are seriously a-maz-ing! I say "memories" specifically too. Kristin practices what she calls "Beloved Photography." She describes it as "a very natural approach to photography. There's very little posing, and it helps people really get back to the core of what matters most in their relationships." Learn more about it out here!

You can't go wrong here: great venue, fantastic vendors, gorgeous flowers, couple so in love it shines through in every picture, and stunning personalized details scattered throughout the day!

Warning: I'm about to go a little picture happy in this post. I can't help it - they're that good! Just you wait and see:

Mustaches were everywhere in their wedding details! They even handed them out to guests to party with at the reception! 

Do I need to say how much I loved these escort cards?!

Margaret & Ben had their first look in the gardens at Sweetwater, where the ceremony would take place. So romantic!

I LOVE how they look at each other! There's just so much joy shining out of their eyes....

By the way, their Bridal Party was the funnest! Who else could think of bouquet light sabers?!

All of the flowers were by the talented, and seriously fantastic, Plant Shoppe. We love working with Betsy and her team and ooh'd and aww'd over the flowers all day long! How cute are the pictures of Margaret & Ben next to their centerpieces? Guests were having the best time checking them out!

Their ceremony was held under the trees out in the gardens and completely fit them to a tee!

My favorite moment of the night however was when Ben got up with his acapella group from college and serenaded his bride with an impromptu performance - priceless!
