Romantic Southern Plantation Wedding at Oak Hill | Jade & David

From the intimate ceremony to the glow of their beautiful sunset portraits, this entire southern plantation wedding exuded warmth and light. And when you meet Jade & David, you know exactly why! They embody such heartfelt joy towards everyone they talk to and their smiles just radiate with sweet enthusiasm! I have had the pleasure of knowing Jade since college, but their beautiful woodland engagement session was the first opportunity I had to meet David. But it was within just minutes of seeing them together that I knew they had something especially tender and sweet about their relationship AND that I was in for a truly incredible wedding day.

This sweet couple made such a special effort to fill their day with sentimental and thoughtful details that would personalize their wedding. From the family Bible guest book to the long farmhouse tables arranged family style at the reception, you could tell this couple wanted guests to feel comfortable and welcome as a part of their intimate circle. One of my favorite moments was the footwashing that they shared during their tear-filled ceremony! Using copper vessels that belong to the bride’s grandmother, there wasn’t a dry eye as they ceremonially vowed to serve each other always.

Jade & David are also such a perfect example of the magic that can happen when you trust your photographer and give them plenty of portrait time on wedding day. Between their sweet first look with portraits after in the gardens, a dedicated time for portraits after the ceremony to capture that newlywed glow, AND THEN sneaking out of the reception for a few moments at sunset to capture a few more photos, it was nearly impossible for me to narrow down which portraits to share in their blog! There were just so many incredible moments to choose from!

Can we talk for a minute about how this wedding day was COVERED in lucky little blessings? Just three days before the wedding, the ladybug population swarmed. All day long we encountered hundreds of these happy little ladybugs catching rides on Jade’s bouquet and flocking into the garden to attend their wedding. Long considered a symbol of luck and making wishes, I think it’s a special sign that this southern plantation wedding is heralding a beautiful future!

Oak Hill houses one of the most one-of-a-kind and stunning ceremony locations I’ve ever seen- their sunken garden! This amphitheater-style garden with a fountain focal point at the bottom always leaves guests gushing about how unique it is, and I love how this venue offers the classic southern plantation wedding with an unexpected twist through their unique gardens.

Funny story: Just as Jade & David began to cheer, I caught my heel on a tree root and took a tumble straight down onto my behind (occupational hazard of being a wedding photographer and walking backwards all the time)! I caught this photo halfway down to the ground, and though I’m sure their cheer would have been full of joy anyways, I love that I captured a bit of their laughter at my clumsiness!
