I think Rae & Seth’s awesome country wedding day has to go down as one of my most FUN weddings of 2017– for real! Not only are they the absolute sweetest and most kind hearted people, but they also know how to party!! Talk about a perfect combination. The day started with the first of many happy tears when the bride’s sweet dad surprised her with a horse & carriage. Deep down she had really wanted it, but was being conscious of their budget so she decided to skip it. However being the daddy’s girl she is, her father decided to surprise her with it and they shared the sweetest moment together when she finally realized he had made her dream come true.
Their beautiful wedding ceremony was also emotional as Seth got a little misty eyed seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time. They also had a braiding ceremony in which they braided a cord of three strands and it was a lovely personalized touch. After an AWESOME first kiss we took the bridal party, who were rocking their boots & cowboy hats for some photos around this incredibly charming rustic property. Then we were able to steal the bride & groom for more photos by the silo right as the sun was setting. It was too perfect!
For their barn reception they had the most beautiful rustic chic decor with so many pretty details everywhere. My favorite was their tree stump cake stand which was engraved with their names! It was a photographer’s dream for sure. Once the reception started it was party mode ON all night long. Highlights included killer line dancing bridesmaids, Seth dancing on a table top and Rae riding a wine barrel like a horse. ;) It was seriously amazing. The reception was so much fun that I hit my highest photo count all year in a single wedding! I just could not stop taking pictures!! I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite images from their epic Central Florida country wedding below.
