Today we are showcasing a beautiful outdoor summer wedding at Lauxmont Farms in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania between Aubrey and Barrett. The location is such a perfect spot and the bright colors used in the wedding along with the unique DIY decor throughout the reception makes this such a perfect wedding to showcase.
This sweet couple was photographed by Tahmid with KetaNuva Photography. Here is what Tahmid had to say about the couple and the wedding:
“Aubrey and Barrett tied their knot at the gorgeous Lauxmont Farms, overlooking the Susquehanna River. High school sweethearts, Aubrey and Barrett wanted to have an intimate wedding, and this gorgeous venue was the perfect fit for that. Surpassing the breathtaking beauty of the location, the most memorable part of the wedding took place when the best man forgot to take the wedding ring (yes that happened)! As wedding photographers we consider ourselves to be story tellers, and this was quite the story that was unfolding in front of us. The range of emotions and expressions were transforming from sheer horror, to confusion to, thankfully, laughter. Barrett’s mom came to the rescue with her own wedding ring and that’s the ring that Barrett used to marry Aubrey! It was wonderful to see how the families came together, and the overall ceremony turned out to be one of the most cheerful and memorable that we have ever captured. After the ceremony, we headed out to explore the beautiful landscape of Lauxmont Farms. From frolicking horses to the breathtaking sunset overlooking the Susquehanna river, we utilized every bit of the divine light and scenic setting. It was absolutely fun watching Aubrey and Barrett have the same level of enthusiasm about the portrait session as we did.”
We hope you enjoy all the photos from their special day!
One key member of their wedding party was their dog, Oliver, although the couple initially planned not to have him during the wedding. Here’s a note from Aubrey, the bride, about their special story:
“Barrett really wanted a dog, but we were saving/planning for a wedding at the time, and I didn’t think it would be wise to add that to the mix. Barrett brought up the possibility of taking care of a foster dog and that’s how 3-month old Oliver came into our lives. Within an hour of meeting Oliver, I knew he could not go back, so Barrett and I became “foster fails” in September 2015. Raising a puppy was hard work and exhausting, but so rewarding! We were excited to celebrate his first birthday on June 6, 2016, which also marked two months until our wedding. Unfortunately, about a week after his first birthday, Oliver developed a quarter sized lump on his back left leg. His vet suspected a swollen lymph node, but brought up the possibility that, while highly unlikely for a dog his age, it could be cancerous. We decided to get the lump tested, and Oliver was diagnosed with mast cell cancer shortly thereafter. Due to the location and size of the lump, surgeons and an oncologist decided it was best for Oliver to undergo amputation. It was probably the hardest month of our lives seeing Oliver in pain, not being able to sleep, and adjusting to his new life. Needless to say, going through that solidified Oliver’s centrality in our own lives. While we hadn’t originally planned on him coming to the wedding (he is rambunctious!), his amputation changed all of that: we simply couldn’t imagine having the wedding without him there. Oliver is currently in remission doing remarkably well!”
