Manchester Country Club Wedding | Jen and Brian's Fall Wedding
It was the perfect fall day for a Searles Chapel Ceremony and a Manchester Country Club Wedding Reception
I absolutely love fall. The leaves. The light. The weddings! Jen and Brian had a few locations for their wedding which always makes for a fun day with lots of variety in spaces to photograph in.
I started the day with Brian and his guys getting ready. There was lots of nervous jitters, laughter, and a few shots of Jack Daniels. The guys all gathered in Brian's three room suite to get into their suits and share stories from their past. Most of which I'm pretty sure I can't write here! Once the guys were ready to hit the road in their party bus, we swung downstairs for a few guys photos just outside. From there, they grabbed the coolers and loaded into the bus for, what I'm sure was, an epic ride to the ceremony. Did I mention they are all football fanatics, and there was a game on.
After the guys got on the bus, I headed over to meet with the ladies at the Manchester Country Club where they were getting ready in the bridal suite - which is pretty much the whole 2nd floor complete with a mirrored room for getting into your wedding gown. So many laughs were shared between the girls, including some armpit drying with a hairdryer!
I loved how the decorated the Manchester Country Club was for fall - it made for easy location selections for the ladies portraits.
Searles Chapel Wedding Ceremony
We headed over to the Searles Chapel for Jen and Brian's ceremony. It was my first time at the chapel and I loved everything about it! The stone architecture to the tree lined parking lot which made for some stunning backdrops to both their family photos as well as their couples portraits. One of my favorite parts of their ceremony was seeing how excited their friends and family were for them. I mean just look at the best man when the couple was pronounced married! (Either that or someone scored a touchdown at that football game they were so amped about)
Manchester Country Club Wedding Reception
When we arrived at the Manchester Country Club the cocktail hour was in full swing so we took the opportunity to use the grounds for some images of Jen and Brian as well as some more casual images of the full wedding party.
After being introduced into the reception Jen and Brian went into their first dance and after a fabulous meal, the parent dances, cake cutting, and a party into the night!
