It was two weddings in a row in Butler County in May. I really love the laid back atmosphere of country weddings.
Stacie and Eric’s wedding took place at the Succop Conservancy, which is a fantastic place for a wedding. The house dates from the mid-1800’s and the grounds feature mature trees, an outdoor pavilion, historic barn, and ponds.
Lots of laughter, dancing, great food, live music, and fun people made this wedding a blast to photograph.
I loved the way they tied the motif of the birds, vines, flowers and leaves into all the printed materials:

I love it when a moment happens during a portrait session. This is the goal I’m after when doing all that stuff like telling a couple where to stand and to face each other, etc:
Cameras were everywhere on the dance floor:

The music was terrific! The incomparable House of Soul made sure that everybody got up and danced:

I thoroughly enjoyed the day, and am grateful to have shared the experience and tell the story.
