Jade and Ed wanted to work together in planning their wedding. As it turns out, Jade said that Ed actually did almost all of the planning! They had a small, intimate ceremony; Jade calls it their dream wedding, and they both consider it the most perfect day they could ever have imaged. Jade’s Mom Lisa made her bouquets, and her Aunt Patrice made the centerpieces. Her Maid of Honor Jen was one of Ed’s best friends. Jade was a little nervous for her “first look” with Ed, and she wanted to surprise him by coming in through the antique gates on the Holly Hedge courtyard. After their first look, Jade and Ed didn’t let a humid summer day slow them down from enjoying every inch of the beautiful grounds Holly Hedge Estate has to offer. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

I love the softness and framing this willow tree gives them.
