1812 Hitching Post Wedding: Alex + Cody

It was the perfect fall day for a wedding at the historic 1812 Hitching Post.  Alex and Cody originally planned for an April wedding, but Covid had other plans.  Let me tell you, it was worth the wait!  The yellow farmhouse was the perfect backdrop for such a beautiful couple.

Alex spent the afternoon getting pampered by her sweet bridesmaids, while Cody goofed off with the guys.  The large bridal suite even had its own private balcony that overlooked the property.  Alex chose a vintage and rustic chic theme and it was perfect for this venue.

The tables were decorated with unfinished natural wood slices and topped with lanterns, pearls, and wooden flowers.  Even their guest book was a slab of raw edge wood.  All of the natural wood accents were cut by their Amish friend.  The blush dresses were paired with a navy shawl to pull in the groomsmen’s navy suits.  Green Meadow Farm provided fresh cut florals and soft greenery.  Alex’s flowy bouquet was simply stunning and paired beautifully with her lace gown.

The ceremony was short and sweet.  Alex and Cody had waited a long time to say their “I dos” and they were overjoyed to finally be married.  They cheered and laughed as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife.  We started portraits at the most beautiful time of day and the lighting was so perfectly golden.  Alex is truly one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever photographed and I could have spent the entire evening just on her bridal shots!

We headed to the front of the house to grab a few extra shots at dusk and they are definitely magazine worthy!  Alex and Cody are so fun to be around and they always keep me laughing!  Their intimate wedding has quickly become one of my favorites and I’m so excited to share it with you today!
