I’m back today with the 2nd part of Abby and Tripp’s colorful Vineyards at Bettys Creek Wedding! What a fun day this was to capture. Full of laughter and love. It was my first time photographing a wedding at Betty’s Creek and I was simply blown away! The property is so peaceful, tucked up in the mountains in a way that makes you feel as though you and your guests are the only living souls. The buildings on the property each have such character… See my other post from my original visit to Vineyards at Betty’s Creek for more on the history of the buildings and property. The property offers multiple locations to have your ceremony, Abby and Tripp chose to say their vows under a beautiful large old tree next to the honeymoon cottage.

I adore shooting through things, other tree’s, grass etc… I feel as though it gives depth to an image. We’ve been informally called ninja’s by multiple wedding guests. Many times during the wedding you will find us on the ground, hiding in a bush, up in a tree… Whatever needs to be done to get the image!

After the ceremony guests made their way past the vineyards and up to the newly built reception lodge. Upon arrival they were greeted with stunning mountain views.

Abby and Tripp worked together with the talented Wendy with Weddings by Wendy and Lauren at Sweet Stem’s Flower Bar to create a gorgeously designed wedding reception. Jewel tones alongside lot’s of earthy greens made up the tabletop decor. Place settings were adorned with one beautiful fern leaf atop a collection of both square and round tables.

Once guests were seated toasts began… They were a perfect mixture of funny, thoughtful and sweet.

When the light was just right to get that beautiful blue sky behind the great chandelier on the balcony of the reception lodge I couldn’t resist pulling A + T out for a little impromptu dance… I think it was worth it!!!
