Charlotte & Mason's Fairytale Wedding at The Willow Creek
Earlier this year, our featured couple, Charlotte & Mason, were married in a romantic ceremony at The Willow Creek, an historic and charmingly rustic barn located just outside of Frankfort, Indiana. It was the perfect day, filled with love and laughter, with talented photographer Aubrey Lynn, there to capture it all. As you keep reading, you'll get to experience the magic of their special day, and we know you'll love it. Before we get into their wedding, we want to highlight their first look photos because they are just too wonderful not to share. Charlotte is so angelic as she walks towards her soon to be husband, and we can only imagine the nerves coursing through both of them. The look on his face when he sees her is priceless- these are the moments that are truly everything. Seeing your partner is their wedding day attire is indescribable, and we know it was the same for these two. Sharing a few smooches, the day had officially begun and the magic was about to continue.
The next event of the day was the ceremony itself. Mason stood handsomely at the alter in his blue dress military uniform while he waits for his new bride as she was escorted down the aisle. Charlotte was gorgeous in her long flowing lace gown, complete with a floral detailed train, and her hair and makeup expertly done. They exchanged their wedding vows as loved ones looked on, holding hands and looking deeply into one another's eyes. As they were announced husband and wife, they shared a kiss as the onlookers cheered. Leaving their wedding under a military tunnel of swords, they walked out together hand in hand. Posing for photos with their bridal party, they were all smiles. The men wore navy blue suits and blush pink ties, with the women in various styles of pink blush gowns, and standing side by side, the colors are nothing short of beautiful. The bridal party even completed their own bridge to have the couple walk under, this time with florals.
We love all the details that go into creating an event, and the details at Charlotte & Mason's wedding were some of the prettiest we've seen so far. Soft pastel colored roses in shades of pink and tangerine matched the bride's floral bouquet, and complimented the table settings, featuring additional florals with matching pink linen napkins and all white tablescapes. Underneath the twinkle lights of the venue, it looks like something out of a fairytale. The couple offered delicious red velvet cupcakes for dessert, along with dinner and cocktails. There was even a giant bottle of champagne being passed around amongst the bridal party! Everything from their wedding colors, to the venue, to the company was incredible, creating a one of a kind, magical event.
The couple had a matching floral cake that was beautifully decorated with the same colored roses as Charlotte's bouquet. Mason even cut their cake with his sword! Feeding each other pieces of their delicious wedding day cake, both look happy and playful as they enjoyed the moment. The below photos are some of our favorites of the happy newlyweds- their first dance as husband and wife, and a ceremonial sparkler send-off. What a beautiful wedding these two had!
We never get tired of seeing happy couples on their wedding day. Everyone always looks elated and the mood is continuously high. There's just something so special about it all. We want to extend a congratulations to the happy newlyweds on their marriage, sending them nothing but the best. Cheers and congratulations!
