One of the most searched wedding phrases over the last few years is ‘rustic wedding photography’. And it’s not hard to wonder why! Rustic weddings have maintained their popularity because of the timelessness of the imagery and the countless options for beautiful backdrops.
Karen and Ben had originally contacted me to photograph their wedding back in 2019, but then Covid struck and Karen’s UK family were unable to travel. After a few date changes, they locked in 26th March 2023, their venue of choice was the amazing Cowbell Creek in Austinville. I had been there before but had never seen it so green and so beautiful, and in spite of a bit of British rain early in the proceedings, the day was a huge success!
I arrived early (as always!) and photographed the ‘nervous tension’ part of the day. Was the wedding going to be inside or out? Would the rain stop? Ben and his boys were there early, and Karen was impressively on time too!
With the rain radar looking busy, we opted for an indoor ceremony, which was of no consequence at a venue like Cowbell Creek as the Plan B is as amazing as the Plan A!
The ceremony had plenty of tears and was filled with emotion. With the rain abating I was able to take the bridal party around the property for some rustic wedding photos!
Cowbell Creek is the perfect venue for rustic wedding photography. There are limitless locations for photos, and I was like a kid in a sweet shop choosing the best options!
To everything in between!
And so to the barn for the reception. And what a reception space it is!
