Karen is a very special lady to me! She’s the mother of one of my past brides, Cherie, whose wedding I photographed several years ago. I was so happy when they contacted me for Karen’s upcoming nuptials! I had no idea quite how beautiful of a day they were planning until I got to the house. Karen was floating around in a white bathrobe that said “Bride” and Harley was in the kitchen working on dinner (even though he was supposed to be getting dressed)!
The sun started setting during their poolside ceremony as their closest friends and family watched. It was truly a beautiful wedding. They’re on a one month honeymoon to Italy right now and wanted to share some pictures with family while they were there! Thanks so much for letting me share in your special day.
Ceremony and Reception venue: private residence
Wedding design and coordination: Stephanie Strawn
Floral design: Wilson’s Limited

This is what greeted guests in the front and directed them around to the back. Love all these details!
I think it’s pretty special that Karen’s dad walked her down the aisle:
Karen’s two gorgeous girls, Danielle and Cherie. I’m not sure what they were laughing at, but I love this shot:
Some truly unique and beautiful details. They totally transformed the backyard!
We tried to get a shot with all 5 grandboys, but the twins were sleeping. We had our hands full with just these three though!

Karen told me she loved candlelight and really wanted to do their ceremony after it got dark! But when the sun finally went down those 300 candles were blazing!
They didn’t have a first dance planned, but I think their impromptu one was even better:
What a beautiful wedding!
