Antrim 1844 Wedding | Lydia + Ben

antrim1844_wedding_-107When I was a bride checking out venues I came across Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel and always loved the quaint look of it, so when Rachel Smith Photography asked me to work with her on Ben & Lydia’s wedding I was thrilled! Everything was in full bloom which made for beautiful pops of color in the bride and groom portraits.

Get ready for this beautiful black and jewel tone wedding with hints of nautical elements found on the cake topper and favors. antrim1844_wedding_-5antrim1844_wedding_-7antrim1844_wedding_-10antrim1844_wedding_-11antrim1844_wedding_-16

They will then re-write letters each 5 year anniversary and replace the bottle of wine for a tradition together. LOVE this idea.
