daniel + kenzie | the acre | hipster country chic wedding
Couples who know their style, their love, mission in life and know how to execute it perfectly into real life..well... are rare.
But when you get to experience it in real time and it becomes a tangible thing. Its a sight to behold.
Over the summer we had the chance to get to know Daniel + Kenzie, and after spending just one day with them, it was hard to resist their goofy lovable charm. County charm with a strong hipster streak. Every couple portrays their own vibe, and you can't force them to be something their not. As much requests as we get for those romanic and airy couples, its not fair to make certain ones look as such. Your vibe attracts your tribe. And the love of your life. These two love to dance, laugh and have a good time. They believe in pinky promises and dressing sharp. They love the moody tones, and a hipster edge. With a dash of unique along with a pinch of class. They are special and we love them, and being chosen to capture their big day was flattering beyond words.
With the love of their wonderful family, friends and those near and dear..what a great big day it was. Literally the BEST party we have ever attended.
When they told us back in June that The Acre in Orlando was the chosen venue, we immediately got excited. One it was a PERFECT fit for them. Two it was incredibly unique and we here at C+C. thrive off the different. When they explained it would be a cross of country hipster we where immediately intrigued. They explained that the flowers would be paper and be partly her grandmothers love letters(swoon), and the colors purple and blue our artistic minds where excited to see what lay in store.
The Big Day
When the big day arrives, the weather was perfect and it ran smoothly and on time the whole way. Minus a missing groomsman shirt...and a double entrance at the reception! But that made the day even more them! It was a day of laughter and fun.
Spending several hours with the girls as they got ready has always been one of my favorite parts of the day. The jitters and the excitement. The "its finally here". The sweet moments when mom and sisters help her get dressed, and the moment dad sees her for the first time. So many feelings and emotions as her now family spends the last few moments with her before she becomes part of a new family. Its touching in its own special way and cannot be replicated.
The fellows usually are having a grand old time. Usually fussing over a pin that wont stay, or for the first time spending some 30 mins correcting rouge hair in a cowlick. Orrrr realizing that a grooms mens shirt is missing! Its usually full of good laughs, inside jokes, and asking the groom six hundred times "you ready?!" Daniel and the boys made our time with the a good one, and they looked particularly dapper.
THE FIRST LOOK
These are always some of the best moments. We usually like to predict between ourselves whom will throw the bigger reaction. This time it was Daniel. I like to call it "just one the football game face" Daniels excitement through the whole day and electric energy was highly contagious. Needless to say we left the venue to ceremony pumped and excited for what was to come.
The ceremony went perfectly and sweetly. Tears from audience members and Kenzies mom made it that much more special. No flaws, it was a perfect moment. Their first moments as Mr + Mrs.
Never have we ever been to a wedding thats provided us with so much to do. So many things that even with three photographers it was hard to capture it all! We had a smashing DJ, huge dance floor, a campfire, hammock, live karaoke, a bar, a mini playground , a VINTAGE VW BUS...ya catch my drift?! The party literally ran all night, to the point where we couldn't stand any longer. They were so sweet to allow us to get down and boogie for a few of the reels and enjoy the amazing food! What a way to end the wedding season.
Needless to say you didn't come here to read a novel, so now would be a good time to exit with my two sense and allow you to seewhat you came for! We hope you enjoy them as much as we endlessly loved being there to memorialize it!
