I just went to the Woodburn Tulip for the first time and it was gorgeous! I got to photograph Billy and Karen for their pre-wedding bridal shoot.
I loved the deep maroon antique vibe throughout the wedding. Everything was just so classy and looked amazing with Austin’s gorgeous red hair! They even had Something Borrowed bring in antique love seats and chairs set up in two vignettes at the reception – one next to the lake and another overlooking the view of the gorge.
After the ceremony we went down to the beach and took a stroll under the pier. The concrete pillars made for some pretty sweet visuals. And then they entered the reception through a sword arch, it was pretty awesome. After some hilarious speeches and hardcore party rocking they exited through sparklers on the beach and Aaron was tossed into the sea!
I love smaller weddings like this, because you really focus in on the things that are important and don’t have to be bothered with all of the extras that you don’t care about. Holly and Ethan’s three kids were a huge part of the day and the ceremony. Ethan’s dad even officiated! Everything was perfect!
