As the leaves flutter off the trees, there’s no better way to reflect on the romanticism of fall than to scroll through Jake and Stephanie’s Belhurst Castle autumn wedding blog post. Their wedding was so gracefully fall themed that I think you’ll love each detail of it!
I loved the simple, yet elegantly designed fall invitation suite! And I already have to give a shoutout to Stephanie’s florist, Stacy K Floral for having a handful of flowers ALL READY for me for these flat lay pictures! I SO appreciated them being right there all ready to go! You’ll also have to check out Stephanie’s GORGEOUS bouquet further down this blog!
Stephanie got ready in the Tower Suite at Belhurst Castle where the wedding was held. I really did love that we got Stephanie dressed right in the turret of the tower itself!
Groom Details and Portraits
Here are some of Jake’s details!
Please notice what, or rather I should say who, is on Jake’s cufflinks. Oakley, Stephanie and Jake’s dog couldn’t be a part of their ceremony at Belhurst but he could be with them in spirit! He was however part of their engagement session that you can check out here!
He may look super serious but hang with him for 10 seconds and you’ll see how much fun he really is!
Father Daughter First Look
I loved this First Look with Stephanie and her dad. He joked throughout the day that his allergies just kept acting up, as he wiped tears from his eyes.
Bride & Groom First Look
Bride & Groom Portraits
This spot where we did portraits was an amazing meshing of perfect portrait lighting and autumn color! A photographer’s dream… especially when all Stephanie’s wedding colors were autumn themed!
They had their personal vows all ready for each other!
I don’t even remember what these two were laughing at but it’s one of my favorite candid pictures of them from the whole day!
I loved framing Stephanie and Jake between these two hydrangea bushes!
We wanted to make sure we used the lake as the background of some photos too! Can’t miss that!
And what is a Belhurst Castle autumn wedding without pictures of the castle itself?!
Here are some portraits of just Stephanie and I LOVE how they turned out! Isn’t she stunning??
Stephanie and her bridesmaid’s hair and makeup was done by Gallery Salon! They had LOTS of bridesmaids, moms, aunts and flower girls to get done but MAN, they were fast and kept us right on time! I was so impressed!
Again, florals by Stacy K! Just incredible!
Bridal Party Photos
Here’s their bridal party… Flower Girls, Ring Bearer and all!
The kiddos were SO good for photos! I was impressed by that!
One of Jake’s requests was to have a photo with the bridesmaids. Of course they all had to blow him kisses!
There’s no better place for a Belhurst Castle autumn wedding ceremony than to hold it on the lawn of the castle itself!
HUGE shoutout to Stephanie’s mom who made a QUILT for each family that attended the wedding! HANDMADE! They looked gorgeous!
Here comes the bride, with Carmen at Belhurst always ready to lend a helping hand!
Simpy radiating joy!
Stephanie wasn’t the only one radiating!
You may now kiss the bride!
The guests of honor enter their own Belhurst Castle autumn wedding reception!
The First Dance
Stephanie and Jake love the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas and there were a few things in their wedding that tastefully nodded to the movie. Their wedding cake was one of those nods!
The donuts and donut wall was also another nod to the movie! These were delicious and made by Donuts Delite!
Our DJ for the night was Steve Turner with Turner Music Productions.
At the end of the night, we had a chance to do a few night time shots both inside and outside the castle!
Thank you so much for coming by the check out Stephanie and Jake’s Belhurst Castle autumn wedding. We were honored to be a part of their day and capture all the sweet memories of their day. Andrew and I wish you both the very best as you begin married life together!
