Arianna and Max's rustic barn wedding at the 228 in Sterling was absolutely STUNNING! From all the cozy barn details to the hazy golden light pouring through the trees to the couple on cloud 9 themselves, this wedding was an absolute dream!

After getting ready, Arianna and Max decided to do a first look. I LOVE when couples go for a first look because it allows for them to have a moment together before the ceremony and it helps to take the pressure off of them before walking the aisle.

After their first look, we headed over to the 228 in Sterling to get some of their formals out of the way before the ceremony. We had planned to get a majority of the formals done before the ceremony so that we weren't doing them during cocktail hour - meaning the couple could spend more time with all their family and friends. After the ceremony, we finished up family formals and spent some time with the couple one-on-one getting some photos of just the two of them.

I think it goes without saying that this group was a ton of fun to work with - I love relaxed, fun formal photos and this bridal party was all for it!

Officiated by April (The Offbeat Officiant) - LOVED her bright red hair, and she was so sweet!

The reception space was absolutely gorgeous and this couple definitely knew how to party! I absolutely loved getting to know them, their family, and friends - everyone was so incredibly kind and an absolute joy to be around!
