This was a beautiful day to be apart of. One of my most favorite venues this year, Ridge Haven Chalet is a gorgeous venue that offers a full service. Tucked in the middle of nowhere this private garden features stunning flowers, plants, trees, and rustic decor. If your looking for that picture perfect outdoor ceremony, this is the place for it. Grace the venue coordinator runs the show flawlessly and will help keep a busy bride on track. She is also the venue officiant. The venue is a log cabin with a bridal suite for a bride and bridesmaids to get ready in and also a room for the groom and his men. I couldnt get over all of the options for backgrounds for photos here! I was so happy with this modern vintage bride's decision to focus on just getting family formals and bride and groom portraits. They have so many great choices to decorate their home with. The ceremony was beautiful, a long gorgeous walk to the alter covered in Ivy, and a huge treeline of trees.
From a photographers perspective this was an amazing day and I would love the opportunity to shoot her in the fall as well. Those trees will look amazing in October. One of my favorite features here was the wall covered in Ivy. The Bride and Groom had a beautiful moment at the top deck of the cabin, and we were ready to capture it for them. A beautiful candid between a bride and her groom.
I chose to do the family formals on the large brick steps because during the time of day the sun was at its highest but there was large trees to block the direct light, so everyone looked flawless!
