I remember going to the Antrim 1844 as a young girl with my parents. I thought it was gorgeous, something out of a magazine, something historic and so neat. I remember thinking their gardens would be so pretty to take pictures of. But never did I think we’d shoot a wedding here. The Antrim 1844 has been on my bucket list since 2014 when we went full time. This is our first wedding there.
Michelle and Shaun, what a beautiful day you guys had. It was beautiful weather, hot, but beautiful. Vibrant and Colorful. Those are the two words we associate to your day. Your flowers and wedding palette spoke beauty and bright, vibrant and full. We loved all the details and loved how everything wove throughout the day.
Your ceremony was sweet. Michelle wrote and recorded a song and it played as they looked at each other, committing life to each other and believing for the most amazing future. Their guest book was a beautiful puzzle with pieces for guests, and a program was a playbill as these guys love the arts.
A few personal favorite moments were the cheoreographed first dance and father/daughter dance, a rocking band, and the grooms cake, the Oriole Bird. Other details like a Monogramed Name board at their sweet heart table, chocolate covered strawberries (one of my favs!), and even Rescue Shoes for those whose feet needed some extra love while partying on the dance floor.
Michelle and Shaun, what a full and beautiful day you had. Thank you so much for choosing us. We hope these photos bring you tons of memories in the years to comes and laughs and tears too for days and days.
When Michelle and Shaun hired us, they fully knew 1) we’d never shot there and 2) it was on our bucket list. First off, thank you both for trusting us and thank you for helping us reach awesome goals like shooting at amazing venues. Checked off this one. Up next, The Sagamore Pendry Hotel and The Biltmore Estate!
