Y’all, this day was the ultimate dream for any couple having an October wedding!! The colors on the trees were vibrant, it was 70 degrees outside, the sun was shining, we were on time for everything, and we got a pretty sunset to seal the deal. What a wonderful day we had at Sassafras! I’m so excited to share Jordan and Kelly’s day with you.

When Stephen and I arrived, both Kelly and Jordan were wrapping up getting dressed. Stephen hung out with Jordan and his guys, while I hung out with Kelly and her girls. I just loved all the details they put into the day!

There were some sweet tears when Kelly saw her daddy for the first time. 🙂

The first look took place on a picturesque bridge right in front of the stone chapel. Kelly and Jordan both seemed nervous and excited leading up to it, but as soon as they saw each other, they were as happy as they could be. 🙂

As far as ring bearers go, Wyatt won the show hands down (every time he asked for a photo we just couldn’t say no!). 🙂

After portraits, it was time for the ceremony! I still cannot believe that the weather was 70 degrees at the end of October. It was unbelievably gorgeous!
The church was adorn with red roses, lilies, and baby’s breath, which made butterflies flutter around in the sun’s warmth. The couple couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony.

I love this photo with Kelly, her mother, and her grandmother. Three generations of wedding bands; what a precious memory!

After the ceremony, guests were sent to the Stable, where touches of red and silver graced the tables. My favorite touch: they purchased personalized M&Ms as party favors for the guests (because who doesn’t like M&Ms?? 🙂 ).

This was my other favorite touch of the reception: a memory table honoring those who couldn’t be there. Cody, Kelly’s older brother, was a classmate of mine in high school, so capturing his little sister’s wedding was the biggest honor for me and Stephen.
