Pratt Place Barn Wedding Details + Story of Whitney and DJ

Hey everybody!

I've shot more weddings at Pratt Place Barn than probably just about any other wedding venue, so you'd think I'd seen it all, but I haven't! Once again, our fabulous clients have amazed me with a gorgeous vision that became a real wedding that could take your breath away! I'm spreading Whitney and DJ's wedding story over two days so you can take in the full effect of what they created. Today I'm sharing the wedding ceremony at Pratt Place Inn. Such a dream. (okay, okay, I mixed in a few reception details... enjoy your sneak peek!)

I love anything and everything from Rifle Paper Co., including these "Will you be my Bridesmaid" cards.  To die for!  And how about this chalkboard sign.  Some days I wish I could have another wedding of my own just so I could have these fabulous wedding details.

LOVE her Tori Burch shoes (can you see my reflection???) and her wedding dress hanger not only has her new name, but the wedding date. So sweet!

And guess what... it's FALL y'all!!  I picked up a fall leaf on my way in to Pratt Place in and stuck it in my shootsac.  Little did I know it would inspire this wedding ring shot! Yay!

Oh my word... Whitney is such a stunner!! Mere always captures great getting-ready moments!

The Pratt Place Inn has a gorgeous staircase that is pretty much perfect for a special first look for the bride and groom.

Darling, darling, darling little flower girls. 

I always wonder what the dad says as he's walking his daughter down the aisle (they've got a big job... keep the bride from being a blubbering mess). I always put myself in the dad's place and wonder what it is I'll say when I walk Ellie and Cece down the aisle. Don't get me started!

Mere got access to one of the rooms at Pratt Place Inn overlooking the ceremony for this gorgeous shot.

Meanwhile I hung out below capturing sweet moments like this!

How FUN is this bridal party?!  Balloons, balloons, balloons make me happy.

Balloons, balloons, ballons I love you (that's from Yo Gabba Gabba, Cece's favorite show... but so fitting here).  I'm dying over this sweet time Whitney got to spend with her bridesmaids on the wedding day being fun and silly!

Isn't she a dream-come-true?

Okay, that's it for today! Come back tomorrow for a breathtaking Pratt Place Barn reception!!

Talk to you soon,

Oh, look! One more pic... one of our favorites (of all time!) couples, Brittany (Whitney's bridesmaid) and Chase with their new son, John Grady! What a happy family!!
