Romantic Summer Antrim 1844 Wedding

Sep 2, 2021

Romantic Summer Antrim 1844 Wedding

The location was set. Rows of white ceremony chairs were set out across the freshly cut grass in front of the beautiful white arbor. Each of its corners beautifully decorated with florals by the talented Ann’s Garden. The beginning of the aisle was marked with two stunning floral arrangements.

It couldn’t have been a more beautiful setting for this romantic summer Antrim 1844 wedding.

As the guests slowly trickled in to their seats, the lovely sounds of a harp played in the background. The sun slowly began to peak through the clouds that had been around all morning. Christian anxiously waiting for his cue at the top of the deck to begin the ceremony. The music transitioned, and it was time to begin. Slowly, one after the other, groomsmen and Christian made their way down the path along the edge of the garden where all the guests were waiting. His hands intricately turning within each other.

The nerves were building up within him. In the best way possible.

As the guys settled in for what was about to be an incredible moment, the music shifted once more. Now it was the girls’ turn to make their way through the garden to the aisle. One-by-one, they came down the center of the garden, gracefully making their way around the fountain in the center. Each with the biggest smile on their faces. So excited for Christian to see his gorgeous soon-to-be wife. Each time one would pass him, the anticipation would build.

Then, it was finally the moment.

The officiant asked everyone to rise, and off in the distance, you could see Michaela, arm and arm, with her dad, begin to make her way off the deck. Smiles instantly lit up on all the guests’ faces. This was truly a picture-perfect moment. As she began to make her walk through the garden, Christian began to sway back and forth. This moment that they have talked about for so long was finally happening. She was walking towards him to officially become his wife.

Could you ask for any more beautiful of a moment?

Antrim 1844 rose behind Michaela, and as she rounded the fountain, so did that fountain rise, plus the rest of the garden. It was a beautiful sight to see, but Michaela easily drew all the eyes right to her. She was in the most beautiful Maggie Sottero wedding gown! With a simple yet stunning veil flowing from her hair. As she passed each row, the guests turned to get a glimpse of the gorgeous gown from the back and to see Christian’s reaction.

The biggest smile you could ever imagine!

It was finally time to say I Do. Michaela and Christian, seriously, being a part of that moment will always stay close to my heart. The connection between you two, and the love surrounding you from all your guests was such a beautiful experience! You two looked absolutely stunning, but the words and promises you said to each other topped it all! I know you two are going to have the absolute best marriage, and I’m just so honored to have been there on the day it officially began! You two are the sweetest, and I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to capture every moment of the day! I seriously can’t wait for you to relive it all over and over again through your images! Here is a highlight of the most romantic summer Antrim 1844 wedding.
