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 consider myself a connoisseur of cookie tables.  This was a quite a fine cookie table:

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:
