Cabin by the Spring
On the morning of September 17th, Hannah and Luke were faced with a forecast of rain for their wedding day. However, this beautiful couple did not let a little sprinkle get in the way of their perfect day. The bride and groom embraced the day with the biggest smiles and their love for each other shined bright enough to clear away the clouds just in time for their ceremony.
Hannah’s dress was absolutely stunning. All of the subtle details added to the intricate beauty of it. She looked radiant. For her bridesmaid’s dresses, Hannah chose an elegant navy dress with silver beading on the top to add a bit of sparkle.
Hannah and Luke chose to do their first look on the front lawn of the Hermitage Mansion. Luke’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time was straight out of a fairy tale. He spun her like a princess to get the full view of her gorgeous gown. Honestly, it was hard to pick just four photos to showcase these two. All of their shots were beautiful!
Their bridal party was also such a joy to work with! This group had so much fun and you could tell. Luke’s groomsmen in grey suits with blue accents really brought out the color scheme Hannah was going for. The bridesmaid’s bouquets of sunflowers truly brightened the day in the best way.
The couple’s ceremony and reception happened at The Cabin by the Spring. Their outdoor ceremony was able to happen thanks to a nice break in the clouds! The reception was elegantly simple and really captured the couple’s style. The burlap, lace, wood, and sunflower centerpieces created a homey feel that was inviting for all of their guests. I loved their dessert table as it was so personal to the groom! His family has a tradition of having “pie time” every morning and so he thought it was fitting to include “pie time” into the wedding. Family members brought in a variety of pies to be served! It was so unique and personal!
This couple exuded love and had a blast throughout their wedding day. Thank you for letting us be a part of your big day! Best wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs. McKee!
"Growing up near the Hermitage, I never imagined it would be the place where I would marry the man of my dreams. After our visit and tour of the grounds, Luke and I knew it was the perfect fit for us. The Hermitage had the history, beautiful scenery, and rustic charm we were looking for. The grounds, the garden, and the mansion provided a beautiful backdrop for our wedding and made for some great pictures. We had our ceremony under one of the large majestic trees located near the Cabin by the Spring, and the reception was cozy and intimate inside the Cabin. I cannot thank the Hermitage staff enough for helping to make our day so memorable and stress-free. Lastly, I love that the Hermitage will be a place for us to visit for many years to come and reminisce about our special day" - Hannah McKee, the bride
