Before their ceremony, Traci & Patrick chose to do a first look by the pond on MKJ Farm‘s property. We were able to capture a sweet and intimate moment between the soon-to-be newly weds in a gorgeous setting. It also gave us ample time to capture photos of them with their Corgi, Calvin, and bridal party. We get extra excited when a couple choses to do a first look because it allows some flexibility and time to explore the grounds and get creative! We are especially happy with what Sarah created with Traci & Patrick during this time.
Traci & Patrick’s big day was infused with a lot of their favorite things in pop culture and life. Each reception table was decorated with a nod to Harry Potter and various other television shows, movies, and toys they love like Bob’s Burger, Star Wars, Toy Story, Matchbox Cars, and Futurama! Instead of numbers, each table received a glittery letter along with a bottle of potion from Harry Potter. They were some the most personal and fun centerpieces we’ve seen!
Traci is a dog lover (and groomer), so it was a must that Calvin attended the ceremony and reception! His silhouette also popped up in some of the wedding decor (including corgi shaped cookies!), which was super adorable. Calvin got to hang out right behind Traci & Patrick’s sweetheart table. He was all dressed up in a bright red bowtie! Traci’s dad made a heartwarming speech before inviting his daughter out to the dance floor that we (and everyone in attendance, we’re sure) will always remember.
As guests finished eating dinner, they were invited to enjoy an assortment of pies and play beer pong! We enjoyed getting some “epic night shots” of the beer pong shenanigans and the party on the dance floor.
Here are some of our favorites from their best day ever:
Congratulations & best wishes, Mr. & Mrs. McNeil!!
