Chelsey and Michael’s Botanica wedding was one I had been looking forward to all year. Aside from being one of the loveliest couples around with amazing wedding style, their venue was so much fun to photograph.
The soft color palette of whites, blush pinks, and greens with pops of yellow was perfect against the lush setting of Botanica. The groom and his groomsmen wore blue suits and the bridesmaids wore sage green dresses. Chelsey stole the show in an amazing strapless lace gown.
One of my favorite moments of the day was the surprise officiant. After Chelsey’s father walked her down the aisle, he surprised everyone by officiating the wedding!
Cocktail hour was held outdoors on the lawn with tray passed bites. Then guests headed to the Botanica wedding tent for the reception. There were beautiful toasts given by friends and family. After dinner, everyone danced the night away!
