Chris & Kelsey's Wedding (Spring Hill Manor - Rising Sun, Maryland) / by Erika Sneeringer

Dried etsy flowers that pop with color, flash tats, brooch bouquet, a rustic barn, fall colors with pumpkins galore, a taco bar…. need I say more?  What’s not to love about this rustic wedding?  The weather was gorgeous for this outdoor ceremony at Spring Hill Manor in Rising Sun, Maryland.  Believe it or not, this was the first and only venue that the couple even looked at.  Not surprising, they were won over by the beautiful landscape and rustic charm (as well as the down to earth and fun owner, Jamie, who personally ensures that each and every wedding run smoothly).

One of the greatest joys of being a wedding photographer is capturing the raw emotions. Chris swore he wasn’t going to cry, but he did… and I have pictures to prove it!  Not only did Kelsey and Chris shed tears of joy, but they also kept each other laughing all day. It was incredible to be around a couple with such joyfully contagious personalities!

Kelsey nailed the bohemian bride look and definitely looked just like Jenny from Forrest Gump with her gorgeous flower crown and flowy gown.  And music lovers rejoice at all of the music themed decor and All You Need is Love theme!

I’m seriously obsessed with the bridesmaids dresses.  I love the style and length but also the pop of color with the long gold necklaces, flash tats and dried etsy flowers are stunning!
