It’s such a privilege to be able to be let into a big day like this, and to be in the middle of a sweet family coming together. So it’s EVEN BETTER when you get to be with the same family all over again for a sibling’s wedding a few year’s later. We loved being a part of Justin & Olamide’s beautiful wedding years ago, so spending another day with these families for Samantha & Anthony’s upscale barn wedding was so sweet. We were hired to create a wedding film for them.
Seeing Anthony tear up at his beautiful glowing bride might bring you to some tears.
Samantha & Anthony’s gorgeous, classy day at Stone Valley Meadows’ upscale barn venue (we have to keep using that phrase because of the bot overlords.. sorry) included sun rays peaking through the trees throughout their ceremony, an absolutely jaw-dropping sunset, and a candlelit night of dancing. There were gourmet tacos with every topping imaginable. It was a pleasure working again with Bethany Nicole Photography as well, who we got to capture Samantha’s brother’s wedding with!
The bride’s getting ready area was a beautifully sunlit upper room overlooking the reception hall. Lots of white accents made the room feel even brighter and joyful as they got glammed up and exchanged gifts and happy tears. The guys’ suite was a small separate cabin a ways across the farm, with more heavy wood accents and a breezy porch where we snagged some portraits of them getting ready. Corn hole happened on the side of the cabin in their downtime while the younger fellas threw a football.
The ceremony was a magical – tucked into the woods between the trees, with a pretty wooden arbor, lanterns along the curved stone pathway, and sunlight serenely bouncing across the scene. During cocktail hour, guests relaxed on the large lawn area between the main hall and the picturesque old barn and silo, playing lawn games and enjoying cocktails.
The reception welcomed everyone to a warm toned wooden great hall, full of ceiling high windows and beautiful sunshine making everything glow all the way through speeches and dances. We got to capture some beautiful drone portraits of Samantha & Anthony outside as the last bits of sun peaked through the clouds over rolling hills and trees.
Their family is beautiful and we were so glad to be a part of their upscale barn wedding at Stone Valley Meadows.
