Colleen and Andy were married on a cloudy October day at Cherry Basket Farm in the charming little town of Omena. Their vintage decor fit in perfectly with the brilliant green, browns, and whites of the farm, creating an event that was rich with history and natural beauty. Those who are followers of the blog will recognize the ceremony photo of Andy, overwhelmed with emotion when he first sees Colleen - it's one of our absolute favorites!
"October 3, 2015: Best Day Ever." For Colleen & Andy, it truly was.
Colleen and Andy's wedding day was breathtaking. The location. The decor. The people. Every piece came together to create a truly special event for a very deserving couple.
Colleen and Andy's day began with morning preparations amidst good friends and close family. And among the moments of laughter were the overwhelming feelings of love and excited anticipation. This was the day that marked the beginning of forever. It was a day of celebration.
Celebrating is always a fun and joyous thing to do. And celebrating love is perhaps the greatest celebration of all. Watching Colleen walk across the grounds of Cherry Basket Farm, towards her groom, was the perfect picture of love and excitement. The tears, the joy, the tender love. In those quiet moments, those were the emotions that spoke the loudest.
From that first quiet moment between Colleen and Andy to the beautiful and intimate ceremony on the lawn, it was quickly evident that this was no ordinary wedding. It was that deep emotion and epitomized love and commitment. The vows, a kiss, photos with friends and family, and a wedding reception that rocked the barn...Colleen and Andy's special day was everything it should've been: romantic, beautiful, personal, and a whole lot of fun! Especially when Colleen's dad changed the father daughter song without anybody knowing, to a song that he wrote specially for his daughter and him to dance to. The entire crowd was in tears.
Colleen and Andy, it was truly a privilege to spend your special day with you. I wish you nothing but the absolute best. Congratulations!
