I’ve photographed a lot of Fall weddings in my day, but Holly and Fernando’s wedding had the most unique Fall color palette I have ever seen! The bright orange really made her florals pop against natural surroundings at Hotel Emma.
We were also fortunate enough to have THE BEST weather for their wedding! It wasn’t too hot or too cold, and the sun was so happy that day–as were we all!
Holly and Fernando are so precious together, and watching them show their mutual love and respect throughout their wedding day was something special. It’s evident that they adore each other!
This invitation suite from Paper Culture was so fun to style! The Vintage Bouquet knew I was photographing the wedding and sent a care package full of styling florals! If you’re a bride reading this, be sure to have your florist do this too–it makes all the difference!
Tulips are holly’s favorite flower. They’re typically out of season in the Fall, but Vintage Bouquet worked her magic ;)
This is a prime example of reality Vs Allison Jeffers magic. LOL. Just kidding, but really. This is the same exact location for both photos!
Holly’s “something blue” was her pedicure. Genius.
This color palette full of oranges, peaches, and burgundy was MADE for Hotel Emma. Even the carpet matches perfectly 👏🏻
I happened to glance out the window while I was photographing reception details and saw Fernando and his son hanging out by the fountain. It was the cutest thing!
PS That’s rootbeer. Ha!
These socks kill me 😂
Why, yes, Hotel Emma is an ACTUAL DREAM!
I love how their kids were incorporated into the wedding!
They had a sunset ceremony, so it was a race against time for their portrait time! But we had just enough light for their beautiful couples portraits!
These industrial chandeliers in The Elephant Room are such show-stoppers!
Their first dance was to “Sara Smile” by Hall and Oates. Fernando had their wedding party hold up letters that spelled “Hollly Smile.” If you’re saying “awww” right now, you’re not alone ;)
It was Fernando’s mom’s birthday, so they surprised her with her own birthday dessert!
Holly and Fernando were game for all the night portraits! And Hotel Emma has so many amazing options 😍Here are a few:
Congratulations, again, Fernando and Holly! You guys are so amazing and I wish you decades of love and joy! ❤️
