Clayton & Sarah: July 23, 2016- Lake Hill Winery

Sarah and Clayton were married  on literally the HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR.  Literally, the hottest day.  The weather had been so nice- and then bam- humidity and heat like mad!!!  These two handled it like champs though- and I love them for it!!

The day was SO hot that our afternoon photo session got the halt put on it pretty quickly!  We didn’t want to torture the bride and groom and birdal party- so we did a few quicks ones before the ceremony and then got everyone back inside into the air conditioning for the ceremony!  And how adorable was the ceremony?  First of all- it’s the exact church where Clayton’s mom and dad shared their vows.  Clayton, being a farmer, linked agriculture details into the entire day!  The ring bears rode mini tractors up the aisle!  After the ceremony – guests threw corn kernels at the happy couple!

The reception was held at the gorgeous Lake Hill Winery!  I’d never been there before- and what a stunning venue it was!  I was so excited to shoot their amazing reception there!  The decor was adorable- you could tell Sarah had put so much time into making it perfect!  The cake was made by their grandma and it was stunning!!!

Sarah and Clayton geared up and we did go out into the intense heat (still intense at 7 p.m.) for some gorgeous couple photos in the vineyard!  I’m so glad we did!

Sarah and Clayton- thank you so much for a fabulous wedding day!  We can’t wait for you to see the rest:)
