Hunting Theme Wedding of CharLee and Ethan

Hey everybody!

Today I'm sharing a really UNIQUE wedding with y'all!  When CharLee first met with us and started describing her wedding to us, she threw in a lot of disclaimers.  "He's wearing a camo tux, but it's not going to be like THAT... think Camo + Classy."

So, we didn't know what to expect... we'd never shot a wedding where camo was present, but the wedding was more Classy than Camo, as you'll see below.

They have an amazing home that hosted the ceremony and reception. {better yet... it's about a 2 minute drive from my house, so yeah... I was diggin my commute that day!}  Isn't that fountain gorgeous?!

The hunting-inspired theme was carried out in all the floral arrangements and rustic details were everywhere. 

When the sun set it was even more breathtaking!

Here's the fabulous bride, CharLee, getting zipped into her lace dress from She Said Yes.

CharLee was all smiles as she locked eyes with Ethan at the alter.  I love this moment in any wedding because the bride is filled with such fun emotions!

This is just about the cutest thing ever.  Ethan is such a gentleman and you can see his personality shine in this picture!

The sun was setting as they cut a little cake and had their first fight... a food fight.  (Those are the best kind of fights, after all).

CharLee wrote to me about this image after she saw her images expressing such a gratitude for capturing this moment with her father.  Obviously, I just shoot daddy daughter moments they way I'd want a photographer to capture me with either of my sweet girls.
Now, stare at this pic for a sec... can't you just FEEL her emotion?

Tomorrow we're going to have another post from this hunting-themed wedding: the Portraits!

Talk to you soon,
