Head over heels in love with this Wakefield Barn Wedding. It’s complete summer wedding perfection. From the all white barn ceremony to the bride’s stunning gown and the beautiful florals all around. This wedding is every bride’s wedding day dreams come true.

Weddings like this one are my favorites. Julia is a sister of a past Cotton Room wedding bride and sister of one of our families we photograph regularly! Walking into their day was like walking into a family reunion. So many familiar faces and people to hug! My days are already fun, but having so many friends there made it even better! It’s always such a huge compliment when siblings come to us for their wedding photos too! We are so thankful for family traditions like this one!

Julia & Cody, thank you so much for choosing us!!! It meant the world! We loved you two, your beautiful Wakefield Barn Wedding day, and of course seeing your family again! We hope these pictures make you smile every time you see them, and that you always remember how truly special July 20, 2019 was! Many, many congrats! We hope you two have the happiest of marriages!

All images below were taken on film! I love the way film captures the feel of the moment, not just the moment itself! It’s my new favorite way to document life!
