It was a fabulous day last Saturday, Oct. 2 at the Farm in Candler, NC. Friends and family gathered to celebrate the marriage of Tristan Franklin and Jade Swindell. Shay Brown was the coordinator for the event and every little detail was perfection!
Jade and Tristan met in Illinois where they worked together at a restaurant. Their favorite thing to do together is travel, so it's only appropriate that they are spending their honeymoon in Spain (Madrid and Barcelona).
I had so much fun with this group! There were a lot of emotions, and a lot of dancing and some gorgeous weather! All in all, a fantastic celebration of the love of two best friends!
Flowers were exceptionally done by Shady Grove
I've included several photos of the moment where Jade saw Tristan for the first time because it was SO incredible!! I rarely get emotional at weddings, but tears filled my eyes when I say Jade's reaction to seeing his beautiful bride!! This is real love.
Ken Powers, friend of the couple, served as the officiant of the wedding.

Bride's hair and makeup was done by Eden Salon.
I loved the owl and apple details :) Shay Brown is fabulous at her job!
This group really made me understand why they call it a "wedding party" The party started when they came in!!
The Ring Bearer, Owen, really enjoyed the microphone! it was really cute. (below)
One of the great things about weddings at the Farm is that guests aren't confined to one room, they can go outside and feed/pet the horses, watch the sunset, or talk a walk around the beautiful farm.
This wedding party BROUGHT IT on the dance floor!!! so much fun!!
Sound Extreme did a great job playing all the right songs.
At the end of the night, guests circled Tristan and Jade for a final dance (below). It was quite a moment!
Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your day, Mr. and Mrs. Swindell! I hope you guys are enjoying Spain and I wish you so much happiness!
Another big thanks to my assistant, Giedre, who spent the weekend with me at the Farm and did a fabulous job as always! Thanks G!
