The sun was warm, but the shade of Goodwin Manor’s stone walls kept everyone cool that day. Whitney’s father and grandfather waited on the second floor balcony for her to turn the corner, eagerly anticipating her reveal. Her mother and grandmother watched from the corner as she tapped their shoulders. Never have we seen such joy and happiness flow as we saw that day from her family. I wiped my own tears as her grandfather collapsed reading the note Whitney wrote him for that day. It was the sweetest moment, and I absolutely love capturing these memories.
As Whitney exited the manor with her father and made her way down the grand staircase to meet Mason, he could barely contain himself, biting his lip, squeezing his eyes shut, and smiling wide as she finally met up with him. Whitney’s bridesmaids were so kind throughout the day, helping her with her gown, her gorgeous bouquet, and dancing the night away with her and her new husband.
And when Whitney and Mason were alone, we loved seeing how truly amazing they are together. Both sweet and silly, calm and full of joy. Whitney has a laugh only Mason can bring out, and that is when you know it’s true love.
Thank you both for allowing us to be a part of your day.
They were married in June, so they chose to see each other first at the ceremony but still had plenty of light for portraits after.
They hired a second photographer, so we got to capture both Whitney and Mason getting ready, as well as reception and ceremony details, different angles for portraits, etc.
