AmiLynn and Colleen’s Beautiful Wedding in the Woods at Huntsville State Park Raven Lodge
AmiLynn and Colleen’s wedding was an absolute treat! AmiLynn is a friend from high school and she and Colleen got married at one of my very favorite venues, the Huntsville State Park Raven Lodge.
The setting was gorgeous with the woods on the lake and these two are such a beautiful couple together. There is so much love that they have for each other and as a family with their daughter, Rebecca.
It was also extra special because we got to work alongside another friend from high school, Brandy with Bran Bakes! I had to help myself to seconds at the delicious soup and sandwich bar.
And the funny thing is, I almost missed it all because I happened to be 37 weeks pregnant on their wedding day! But we powered through, I set a personal pregnant photographer record, and got to enjoy this gorgeous wedding day.
Some of my favorite moments from the day were getting to take portraits with AmiLynn and Colleen in the woods and on the lake of Huntsville State Park, the ceremony, and their speeches. I was so touched to hear them tell their family and friends how much their support means to them. Oh, and the cake was pretty amazing, too!
We are so glad that we got to experience and capture AmiLynn and Colleen’s beautiful wedding day. Here’s what the married ladies have to say about it:
Q. How did you two meet?
A. We met online! Lol We were both busy professionals, online dating was the only way to go.
Q. What was the most fun part about planning your wedding?
A. The best part of crafting the ecoflower bouquets and making the signs. Colleen loves being crafty!
Q. What was your wedding inspiration? (decor, theme) Favorite details?
A. Our inspiration was to reflect ourselves. Colleen was raised in a family dedicated to the national and state park system, always camping and hiking. We used our favorite colors-navy and green. Colleen’s family, the Keith side, was represented in the use of the family tartan. AmiLynn and her brother LOVE star wars, so Colleen walked down the aisle to the Imperial March, and her brother Patrick wore an imperial officers uniform! Our daughter Rebecca LOVES to read, and reading is a family value for both of us, so books and book pages were incorporates throughout! Our friends contributed by decorating the 200 cookies as thank you gifts, and decorating the fireplaces. Colleen’s mom and Aunt handmade every heart streamer for months.
Q. What were your favorite songs from your wedding day?
A. We loved walking down the aisle to Jurassic Park Overture and the Imperial March. We incorporated our love of Motown and Soul throughout the day!
Q. What are you most looking forward to in your new married life?
A. We’re looking forward to forever!
Thank you, AmiLynn and Colleen, for making us a part of your wedding day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together! <3
