Sun-kissed laughter, overflowing love, and a touch of historic charm – that’s the perfect recipe for an Ewing Manor Wedding, and Mary & Anthony’s celebration was a masterpiece! My day started early, capturing the buzz of anticipation at the stunning ceremony site. Sunlight streamed through the windows, painting Mary’s dress in a warm glow as she slipped it on. The bridesmaids, radiant in their summery hues, were already buzzing with excitement, and their portraits under the sprawling trees were pure joy.
Meanwhile, Anthony and his groomsmen were a riot! I snuck in some fun candids as they finished getting ready, already brimming with nervous anticipation. The ceremony itself was a tear-jerker – the old castle-like architecture of Ewing Manor providing a dramatic backdrop as Mary’s father walked her down the aisle.
Portrait time with the newlyweds was pure magic. Ewing Manor’s sprawling grounds offered hidden gems at every turn – lush gardens, sun-dappled walkways, and even a charming courtyard. We explored them all, capturing Mary & Anthony’s love in every frame.
The party then moved to the Bloomington Center for Performing Arts, where laughter and dancing filled the air. Heartfelt speeches, delicious food, and four-on-the-floor moves made the reception unforgettable. We even snuck out for a quick sunset session, the golden light painting their faces with a touch of magic.
Mary & Anthony, your Ewing Manor fairytale was pure joy to photograph. Thank you for sharing your love story with me, and for letting me be a part of your magical day! May your journey together be filled with endless laughter, sun-kissed moments, and a love as enchanting as your wedding day.
It was soo much fun to be part of this Ewing Manor Wedding. This venue is really a wedding photographer’s dream to shoot at.
