Remember that super blustery Saturday a few weeks ago? That was Stefanie and Aaron's wedding day. Stefanie and I had carefully selected a beautiful location for all the photos weeks ago that met her vision for the day, but you can't control the weather!!! Know what Stefanie did? She just bought everyone an umbrella. I love that. I met Stefanie at her parent's home where we began our day.

Eric and I coordinated these two meeting under beautiful trees loaded with fall foliage. I will take this moment to reiterate how lovely it is when the couples sees one another before the ceremony. The photos are intimate, not rushed and only about love. Not the party, not the guests, not the family. But two people in love. My favorite kind.

The wind was crazy strong and cold so we tucked away into Wilder Mansion's greenhouses! Yes, do imagine my response when I found out there was a greenhouse. It seemed especially suiting since Stefanie and Aaron are settling together in Orlando!

We met everyone else inside! The Wilder Mansion was a perfect solution for a rainy day. It was elegant, full of character with huge windows letting in gorgeous light.
