Alan and Samantha are definitely one of my favorite couples…
We’ve had the honor of being with them during their journey to the alter. In 2014 the couple contacted us, and we did their Engagement Session at Lake Arrowhead.
Samantha and Alan had the distinction of being the first couple to be married at Khimaira Farm in 2015.
It was a beautiful warm Kentucky Derby day, which was the theme of their wedding. A collection of Derby cups spanning the past few decades adorned the reception.
In the unfortunate absence of Samantha’s Father, she wanted to do a first look with her Uncle
Alan wanted to honor his country by wearing his “Dress Blues’ for his wedding
The couple choose not to do a first look, but instead wanted to share an embrace and fight temptation before their ceremony.
Alan and Samantha had an absolutely beautiful day for a wedding, the skies were a beautiful blue, with awesome cloud cover over Khimaira Farms.
Before their reception and after their ceremony we did all of their family formal pictures as well as a few creative images.
Alan played his guitar and invited the guests to sing with him in memory of those who couldn’t be with them on their special day.
The mood wasn’t somber. This was a celebration a long time coming. After 13 years of dating, they made it down the aisle.
After their musical duet came the Garter and Bouquet tosses
