Rustic September Wedding at The Ranch in Southwick, Massachusetts :: Sneak Peek :: Emily and Paul

While she was getting ready, Emily was so excited for Paul to the boutonnieres, made with shell casings that his best man secretly retrieved. She orchestrated it as a surprise for Paul who is a hunter, wanting there to be pieces of the wedding that could speak to who he is just as much as the rustic flowers and lace spoke to her. She had a wedding cake made with that in mind too, designed to be half white lace and half camo. I was really struck by those details, they were so sweet. It was really clear on Saturday how much these two love each other. Those little surprises planned before the wedding, they were just the start. The amount of emotion at their ceremony was tangible; I think everyone got choked up as Emily came down the aisle, tears in her eyes. That energy carried through the night with heartfelt toasts and then a whole lot of celebrating, including quality dance moves and a packed dance floor! Here's a little peek at their day!
