We are throwing it back to October 27th, 2018 as we feature Gabby & Connor’s Fall wedding on the blog today. They decided to do a first look at our one lane bridge, the photos turned out absolutely beautiful.  We would be lying if we said it didn’t make us a little teary-eyed! Are you #TeamFirstLook? We are!

One of the many perks of doing a first look is you get the opportunity to get a lot of your portraits out of the way before your guests even arrive.  Check out some of Gabby & Connor’s pre-ceremony photos, including them digging up their bourbon. Burrying the Bourbon is a southern tradition to ensure it doesn’t rain on your wedding day.  They must have done it right, because the weather was perfect.

After pre-ceremony photos, they made their way to the pergola at the Mountain Grove ceremony site.  They added a little personal touch to the outdoor ceremony space by bringing in this gorgeous floral arch, which complimented the rest of their weddings’ aesthetic. They said their I Do’s, shared their first kiss as husband and wife, and joyfully recessed down the aisle as flower petals were tossed.

Guests then made their way to the Lodge for cocktail hour and reception. Our friends over at Magical Lighting Concepts added some drapery in the dining space. We really love the way it softens the space, it really is a nice added touch!

The two love birds along with their friends and families danced the night away. It was a truly magical evening.  Congrats Gabby & Connor!
