I had another gorgeous wedding day on Saturday at the Fields at 1890. The Fields at 1890 wedding venue is one of my absolute favorite places to photograph, so I'm so glad I was able to be back!
Mary-Kate and Hollis haven't had the easiest time when it came to COVID reschedules. They currently live in New Jersey, so when their 2020 wedding didn't happen, they were forced to postpone an entire year. I'd say it was worth the wait since every detail was so meticulously planned out.
Because they were forced to reschedule, they didn't have the opportunity to come in town earlier for their engagement pictures, so we actually squeezed them in two days before the wedding day.
Mary-Kate hired me about two years ago when she was able to see the venue in person for the first time. I remember our meeting so clearly. She was accompanied by her wonderful in-laws and, after a fun conversation, decided to book on the spot. I remember her telling me it was a done deal after she read my website, saw my pink hair (unfortunately it is back to normal now), and heard all about my love for cats. I feel like that's a pretty good reason to book 🙂
When the wedding day was finally here, the weather seemed like it wouldn't cooperate. Rain had been in the forecast all week and Saturday was no different. The day began with a dreary torrential downpour. That didn't dampen their spirits though. Even though the rain still continued throughout portraits, these two and their amazing wedding party had no issues getting a little wet for the perfect shot.
Before we started with the portraits, Mary-Kate wanted to have a little fun with Hollis during the first look. One of his groomsmen wore a t-rex costume to lighten the mood. After a shocked expression and a few laughs, Hollis was ready to see his beautiful bride.
Despite the rain, Mary-Kate had her mind set on having an outdoor ceremony. I was thrilled the rain wouldn't derail their plans because the Fields at 1890 has the most beautiful outdoor area. Thankfully, the rain let up about 30 minutes before the ceremony and we were able to continue as planned.
Throughout the entire day, it was clear how much love surrounds Mary-Kate and Hollis. Not only did Mary-Kate have two wonderful parents, but she has an amazing relationship with her step-parents and in-laws. It was so fun to witness all the emotional hugs and memories created throughout this beautiful day.
As the night continued, the sky parted and allowed for a gorgeous sunset! It has been a while since we've had a sunset this good. I'm so glad these two were able to have so many pretty colors to cap off their night.
The day wouldn't have been complete without their amazing vendor team. LaTasha with the Veil KC is one of my absolute favorite people who made the day perfect for them. Their food is also worth mentioning. Joe's KC did the catering, followed by a coffee bar from the Wild Way, and they served the most delicious pie. Why have cake when you can have an entire table of pies???
Thank you so much Mary-Kate and Hollis for including us in your gorgeous the Fields at 1890 wedding day! You two are so perfect together and I had so much fun watching the day unfold perfectly. Here's your full preview! More to come shortly!
