Carly & Luke's Adeline Farms Wedding

Emily Hall

Let me be very up front about this. This is gonna be a looong post (as in I started out with 250 photos for blogging, and I worked real hard to narrow it down to this). Also, that’s not an apology. Not even a little bit.
I met Carly & Luke at Mercedes & Kyle’s wedding. At most weddings, I don’t get more than a few moments to chat with the wedding party in a non-photography manner, and, honestly, this wedding was no exception. But in that weird way that you sometimes just know you’re supposed to connect with people, I absolutely knew I wanted to see this whole crew of friends again (and again and again).
Although they were not engaged at the time, Carly & Luke were SO fun and so obviously in love, that I made a point to call “dibs” on being their wedding photographer (via the classic middle school style of informing their friends and not mentioning it to either one of them, because, let’s be honest, demanding to be someone’s wedding photographer when they’re not engaged yet might be a little weird.)
When you look at these pictures, take a moment to really look at the connections in these images. The parents of this couple are all so loving and supportive of their children and their marriage. I don’t have a poetic way to frame it, but it was just so cool to see such easy laughter and comradarie among all of the family members. They’ve clearly been ready for this official day for a bit. The un-scripted “first look” that Carly did with her dad (see photos) was just one of hundreds of examples that I noticed that day. And those truly happy smiles are plastered all over on Carly & Luke’s faces ALL. DAY.
And that feeling of casual, comfortable, intentional connectedness was a theme throughout the day. Luke’s Mom made his wedding tie. They opted to include Carmelo (their van) & their doggos in their first look, while loved ones peeked and quietly cheered them on. There are so many thoughtfully handmade decorations that weren’t merely used for wedding day, but also to decorate the couple’s new home. Even the venue they picked (Adeline Farms) embodied this feeling of intentional thoughtfulness. The owners, Jenny & Muriel (and their amazing team) were this amazing combination of “completely on top of everything” while being super kind, relaxed, and thoughtful. The whole day was really pretty great. But don’t take my word for it. Please check out the 178 photos that I decided best tells this story.
