On Sunday October 8, 2017, Matt & Jamie exchanged vows at Up the Creek Farms with the most special people in their lives present. All weddings have a clear theme – whether a color, or a nod to a favorite hobby, place, or style. Matt & Jamie’s wedding had bold decorative themes; however, overall the theme could be described in one word – People. Their wedding acknowledged and celebrated so many types of relationships in their lives from close friendships to loving relatives to their role as fathers to two adorable daughters. As seen in the photos by Nick and Lauren Photography, these relationships have two things in common: pure joy & true love.
The celebration began as Matt & Jamie gathered in the Decklan House to get ready together – enjoying one’s company while suiting up. Their daughters and best friends were present to toast to the future. The day was bound for a party; their lives were bound for joyful companionship. During the ceremony, the grooms also chose to be together, side-by-side, as they walked down the aisle. Their daughters were to accompany them as first-hand witnesses of their vows and promises. There was not a dry eye on site, these four walking down the aisle caused even the Up the Creek Farms staff to tear up! Their ceremony was touching, faith-driven, and chalk full of devotion to each other.
Nick and Lauren Photography’s photos of the ceremony even made news – HuffPost included a photo from Matt & Jamie’s ceremony in the article “21 Emotional Wedding Moments That Moved The Photographer To Tears”. Click below to check out the article and to see many more touching photographs.
Planned and coordinated by Jackie of Sincerely Yours Weddings & Events, and with grand blooms by Buds Etc., the wedding design was a perfect balance of modern and earthy touches, warmth and heart-felt details. We are in love with the centerpieces – a unique arrangement for every table! The cute little succulent favors were a fan (and UTCF staff) favorite encouraging to let love grow in all guests’ homes. Then there was the cake! Creative Cakes created a cake that was as stunning as it was delicious. It is really hard to cut a cake that looks like a piece of art… but then when you take your first bite, you know it was well worth it! 😉
Below are photos that captured this unforgettable event. Enjoy re-living the day of pure joy and true love with us!
