A couple of weeks ago, I went out to The Barn at Snider Farms to photograph the Hensley wedding. Lisa and Tanner are such a great couple, and I was so excited to be included in their big day!
I started out by getting a few detail shots and some photos of everyone getting ready.
If you can't tell from the cake and the ring, Tanner is a baseball fan!
Lisa gave her bridesmaids these cozy blankets so we took a photo of them all snuggled together outside the barn.
After everyone was ready, we did a first look with Tanner and Lisa.
They exchanged gifts during the first look. Love when couples do that!
You can probably tell it was a cloudy day, but we got really lucky and it didn't rain until the very end of the night! The temperature was pretty nice too.
They root for different teams, but they make it work!
Brother and sister silliness. These two are both so fun!
I can't explain the chicken...it's just a thing. Apparently rubber chickens show up at every wedding in Lisa's family. Tanner threw it at the girls as they were walking up to the barn. Ha! Their expressions crack me up.
Tanner's gift to his guys was these baseball bat tumblers. So neat!
Toasts with dad
Soon it was time for the ceremony! It was held inside the barn, and it was a beautiful, intimate ceremony. The dark ceremonies are hard to photograph, but I just love the atmosphere!
She was really into the flower girl duties!
Our last flower girl was NOT a fan! haha
It was so beautiful! Congrats, you two!
One of the flower girls got up under Lisa's dress, and once everyone noticed, it was pretty funny. So that brings up something I definitely want to point out...Lisa's mom made an overskirt for her dress that she added before walking down the aisle. It was BEAUTIFUL! I was so impressed with it, and I'm so glad we got some pictures after the ceremony with the skirt added.
After photos, everyone went back into the barn for the reception. They had moved the chairs from the ceremony aside so there were tables all around and a dance floor.
Tanner lost his mother a couple of years ago, so he danced with his grandmother. It was such a sweet moment for them, and I know having his grandmother there to dance with him was special for Tanner.
It started to rain a little, but we got the sparkler exit in while it was just sprinkling.
They really went crazy on the car!
Now Tanner and Lisa are headed on their honeymoon during Spring Break to bask in the sun and relax! I'm not jealous or anything... :D
Congrats to you two, and I hope you have an awesome time this week!
