It was a beautiful morning when I arrived at the New Hampton bed and breakfast where Stephanie and her bridal party were getting ready for the day.
Stephanie's dress was stunning! I love the lace, the illusion neck line, and the back. So beautiful!! Stephanie shared a little about how she chose her dress, " My mom and I went shopping to a few different places. I loved the back of the dress (and am not a huge fan of shopping) so I went with that one! "
At another bed and breakfast just a block away, Blake and his guys were getting ready for the day. I adore Blake's tractor cuff links! So perfect for these two, and you'll see why shortly.
The tractors in these images are Stephanie's (the John Deere) and Blake's (the Ford). Such a perfect addition to the beautiful barn backdrop for their portraits! Absolutely stunning!!
Stephanie's bouquet was a beautiful blend of white blooms, greenery and blue thistles. It was gorgeous!
The bridal party joined us out at the farm for formal portraits. The weather was hot and the sun was harsh, but we found a beautiful shaded side of the barn for portraits.
"Our bridal party was a mix of friends from siblings, high school friends, all the way to friends we've made through work. It was a great to see the mix of friends we have made throughout our lives and them all have a great time, even when just meeting," Stephanie shared. It was a great group to work with!
Their ceremony was held at St. Joseph's in New Hampton. What a beautiful church! This wall of stained glass was simply stunning, but I think my favorite spot in the church was the little stairway up to the balcony. Love, love, love the portraits of them at the bottom!
Be sure to check back soon for more from Blake and Stephanie's gorgeous New Hampton wedding day!
