These two sweet people were wed one Friday evening this spring. I LOVE so much the blush and light blue tones as well as Ellie’s fantastic hair. Such a treat to shoot and as you know, I love the Swishers and so enjoy being around their families. You’ll recognize Ellie’s matron of honor, from her wedding last summer and a bunch of their guests, too!
The afternoon got started when Ellie slipped on her dress in the gorgeous tobacco barn at Red Orchard Park. Mackenzie arrived with his groomsmen, adjusting bow ties and greeting family up until he and Ellie shared their first look. We followed that up with a slew of sweet family photos and the children got tidied for the ceremony. I cannot say enough good things about this venue. I love how open the field is and how wild the tall grass feels, but also how tidy the property is. Those white tobacco barns are such simple and gorgeous spaces to use for portraits and don’t get me started on the tree lined drive.
Mackenzie and Ellie’s ceremony was so sweet and full of family. I loved watching Ellie walk down the aisle with her Dad and little brother. The relationship Mackenzie shares with her family and father is also such a treat. From handing the bride off to the toasts, it’s so easy to be joyful for these two ambitious folks. To tie up the whole family affair, their guests enjoyed an evening of desserts made mostly by Mackenzie’s mother and others. She even made their gorgeous, dotted wedding cake. The kiddos enjoyed the candy bar while everyone passed around water to keep cool and Ale 8’s to keep Kentucky.
Thanks, sweet Swisher friends, for having me tag along to another Swisher wedding. I so enjoyed spending time with your crew and the Morris’. Such a blessing to have not just strong family and marriages all around you to, Mackenzie and Ellie, but also a tight-nit and affirming body of friends. Can hardly wait to see how the Lord uses your work and marriage to bring glory to himself. Enjoy!
