Romantic Southwind Hills Barn Wedding Featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs
This was a special wedding for me because Lacee and Matt requested I use primarily film vs digital photography on their wedding day. Even though I am a hybrid shooter (meaning I use both film and digital cameras at weddings) using film exclusively comes at an added expense to the client. More film means a higher lab bill. It means hiring an assistant who also shoots film, etc. Mo’ Film Mo’ Problems. (Not really, I just wanted to say that ;) Requesting this means you have a discerning eye, and you value the perfectly imperfectness of film. You want timeless, classic images with grain so good you could sop it up with a biscuit. I’ll be honest not many couples request this so it made my little film nerd heart skip a beat! Which is why I’m so excited to finally share their wedding with you. It’s not every day I get a wildly good looking and stylish couple like Lacee and Matt, who also happen to be just about the nicest down to earth people you could meet AND who value photography as much as I do. WIN WIN WIN WIN
Lacee and Matt had an evening wedding so these next few images were actually BEFORE the ceremony, also known as a “First Look”. First looks are absolutely crucial if you have a sunset/evening ceremony time. Otherwise you miss out on these beautiful natural light photos.
Elizabeth Anne Designs had this to say about their beautiful day:
“Lacee and Matt’s vision of an effortless, romantic autumn wedding came to life when they selected the scenic barn at Southwind Hills to play host to their November nuptials. Along with a dream team of Oklahoma wedding pros including the spectacular Poppy Lane Design, the couple designed a wedding filled with lush, natural flowers, candlelight, and dramatic draping. Theirs was a wedding filled with personal touches, from the ceremony altar, handmade by Matt’s family, to Lacee’s garter, sewn by her Great Grandmother, and to commemorate the joining of their families, cherished photos were displayed at the reception. The couple had a hand in each detail, from flowers to fashion. Lacee is the picture of understated elegance in a custom gown from Helen Enox Fine Fabrics and Jimmy Choo flats, and Matt’s bespoke tuxedo from MySuit and Gucci shoes are picture-perfect. Champagne bridesmaids dresses complete the bridal party, with bouquets designed to appear as if they were freshly gathered. The complete devotion and total joy shared by Lacee and Matt is evident in each gorgeous frame captured by Jenny McCann!”
