Don't forget these special items to be photographed first thing on your big day!

Every Rosewood Farms wedding ends up being so romantic…the beautiful white rustic barn is soft and charming, and the big rustic barn is a beautiful, open setting for all the fun! The surrounding grounds get gorgeous sunset lighting, too! But, this pretty venue was made even more perfect when the sweetest couple decided to have their wedding there!

I first met Carly & Josh at Josh’s sister’s wedding back in 2018 – click here to see their big day! I was so thrilled when they reach out years later about their turn in front of the camera. Carly & Josh both have such outgoing, positive personalities and every moment with them is full of laughter and fun. The way they make each other laugh is so heartwarming and you literally cannot help but smile when watching them interact. And their wedding day was just that – full of giggles, sweet loving moments, and a ton of fun!!!

Soft, romantic florals with ivory and blush details are such a timeless look! I also love how much fun both Carly and Josh had getting ready with their crews by their side. That’s how wedding mornings should be!

Next, they took a moment to read letters from one another before the first look.

The feeling of nerves and excitement exuding from each of them was so sweet! They even had a few spectators watching from the barn!

After the first look, we squeezed in as many outdoor portraits as we could before the rain started – luckily it held off just enough for us to get what we needed! Love the blush and blue combo for the wedding party!

Josh looked so dapper in his classic blue tux with blush bow tie. Carly dropped jaws with her gorgeous strapless corset gown with the most beautifully detailed lace!

The ceremony took place in the beautiful Rustic Barn at Rosewood Farms. What I love about this space is, your decorations can be minimal but it still creates such a beautiful statement. Soft greenery with ivory and blush florals were the perfect touch!

After the ceremony, we grabbed some more portraits in the grassy fields, by the pond and even in the lower level cocktail hour space!

Sunset brought us pastel, cotton candy skies that just added to the romance of their perfect Rosewood Farms wedding day!

When it was time to party, guests moved to the Rose Barn where more beautiful floral centerpieces atop white linens waited for them!

Carly and Josh made their entrance even more epic with some cold sparks, and then wowed their guests with lots of twirls around the dance floor.

Finally, the night partied on with great tunes, lots of crazy dance moves and more laughter!
