Bailee and Ryan celebrated their wedding at the Duck Pond Farm in Mount Juliet this November, and it was stunning! Several of the vendors are people whom the bride and groom knew well, which made it even more fun to celebrate with everyone. The sun was shining through crisp, autumn leaves and the air was still just warm enough to keep us from freezing.
All of the girls and guys stayed in cabins on the property after Friday’s rehearsal bonfire, and had plenty of time to enjoy the morning before guests began arriving. Ryan and Bailee got ready separately, and wanted to spend some time praying together before the ceremony. We led Ryan out with a piece of cardboard over his eyes to keep him from seeing his lovely bride, and they exchanged gifts, letters, and prayers underneath a stunning yellow maple.
It’s rare to meet two people so lovely and so committed to one another and to everyone around them. Both Bailee and Ryan have been faithful, wonderful volunteers at our church and Bailee has been talking about opening up her home for parties and tea since long before they even found a house. Photographing this beautiful day was such a pleasure and an honor, and I’m happy to know these two wonderful humans. Here are a few shots from their wedding day!
