James + Olivia Highlight | Private Estate Tyrone, PA
James and Olivia's outdoor wedding featured bohemian decor. Accents of baby pink and purple flowers, eucalyptus greens, and pampas created a soft and romantic September day in Central, PA. However, what stuck out the most to us weren't their decorations, but all the love and joy that came with this celebration.
These photos are still frames from our video. To see James and Olivia's photos check out Sarah Dane Photography. We loved working with the SJD Photography team.
When Evan asked James what he was most looking forward to on his wedding day, he mentioned all the people they loved all being together. 2020 has taken away so many of our opportunities to be together, but for the first time in a long time, James and Olivia got to be back home with all their loved ones.
James and Olivia's wedding day took place on James' parents' property. The Russell Ranch was perfect for their wedding. Olivia recalled days when she first started dating James and the time they would spend at the ranch, hanging out, riding in the fields, or walking along the pond. We were so lucky to shoot James and Olivia here.
My favorite aspect of James and Olivia's wedding day were the personal touches that we would find in almost every aspect of their day. Olivia's grandmother and father played major rolls in her upbringing. So it was important to her that her grandmother help her into her dress, and that she have a first look moment with her dad.
It wasn't hard to see how big of a role family plays in James' life as well. From the location being his' childhood home, to the sweets and cake made by his sister, the food being prepared by his parents, and all the nephews standing with him for his ceremony, the Russell and Adams family did everything to help make this day perfect for James and Olivia.
After the many hours of hard work James, Olivia, and their families put into the design and decorations for the wedding they decided to start a rental company! Check them out!
James and Olivia, it's easy to see how selfless and hardworking you two are, and how much you deserved to be celebrated on this day. Olivia, you have the sweetest heart, and your personality lights up a room. Seeing your joy before your ceremony was a highlight of my year! James, you love and take care of Olivia so well, and I can understand where you get that caring attitude from upon meeting your family. You both work so hard and I really believe that you can do anything you put your minds to. I hope this day was everything you could have ever dreamed of, and that you always care for and love each other the way we saw you do so on this beautiful day. Thank you Olivia, James, Russell family and Adams family for giving us the opportunity to celebrate with you all.
Thank you to this amazing team of wedding vendors who made our job so much more enjoyable, and kept the day running smoothly! We really appreciate you all!
