Wedding photography at the Succop Conservancy is always a pleasure. It was the perfect place for friends and family from all over the world to gather to celebrate Casey and Stéphane’s wedding.
I grew up less than 10 miles from the place, so it’s definitely home turf for me. It’s one of those places that invites people to relax and be happy in one another’s company. I think it appealed to Casey and Steph because the elegant Civil War-era Marcraig House kind of looks like a French country villa. Which makes sense because Steph is from France.

My favorite hair and makeup artist Justine Lynn made sure that Casey looked fantastic. Having a hair and makeup person come to you is one of the smartest things a bride can do to keep her wedding day stress level low.

Sometimes getting into the dress isn’t as easy as it ought to be. Even with the help of bridesmaids:

Casey made a stunning bride. So elegant and lovely:

A wedding always seems to remind those who have been married a long time how it was on their wedding day:
Casey and Steph planted a tree in a pot that they’d later transplant at their new home:
While the guests enjoyed cocktails, the couple and I wandered the grounds together:

Some more details. Mostly Lisa’s photos because she’s really good at them:

Many tears flowed as Casey’s maid of honor Anna toasted the couple. She’s very sweet:

No dimly-lit dance floor for these folks. They packed the floor even though it was bright out:
