Leah + Mitchell Yeomans
It might be impossible to fully express how much I loved this wedding at Raffaldini Vineyards.
Leah and Mitchell know how to celebrate, and that's what the entire day felt like: a celebration. Their sunset ceremony was incredibly sweet, with so many personal touches. On of my favorite of those was the way they began their ceremony. Mitchell led the processional, and instead of waiting for Leah at the alter, he was standing all the way on the other side of the bridal party. They walked toward each other, met in the middle, and headed to the arbor, beginning their marriage hand in hand. It was a tiny detail, but held so much significance and added so much personality to their day. The whole crowd was surprised when their best friend/groomsmen stepped up to marry them. He had been ordained, and they hadn't told a soul who would be preforming the ceremony--needless to say, everybody was shocked (I have to admit that I felt special since I was in on the secret :).
Mitchell's dad ended the ceremony with a prayer, and everyone extended their hands to the newlyweds, it was one of my favorite things to photograph, to this date.
And then, they truly danced the night away. Fun does not even begin to cover their reception! Leah came up to me at one point and said,"I can't believe this! Literally everyone I love is here!" and that was the attitude that they had for the whole night. They were simply overjoyed to be married and surrounded by everyone they loved.
SO perhaps you can understand why there are so many photos here. I had such a difficult time choosing which ones to show you, but I truly believe that they are all meaningful, so here you go. I hope you enjoy these.
Leah and Mitchell, I cannot thank you enough for letting me play a small role in your day. You guys are the best.
