Carol & Ethan: Married! Rustic vintage glamour DONE RIGHT! (a Highland Springs Resort wedding)


This wedding was incredible WEEKS before it even began! The mother of the bride is a photographer herself AND a fan of Jasmine Star (who isn’t?) and actually found me through her! God bless j*! The M.O.B kept in contact with me and shared her Pinterest board of her daughters wedding and… I was ecstatic. I mean, this was the wedding I had been waiting for! I was happy just to ATTEND it, let alone be the photographer! They didn’t miss a detail with the rustic vintage glamour theme (yes, that is what I call it) and from the attire to the food – to the good looks – to the sweetness – to the love – to the EVERYTHING was all just delicious! Steve and I had such a blast spending the day with Carol & Ethan and all of their awesome family and friends. So, so so thankful to be a part of this day! ENJOY!
Carol is a total barbie doll bride and her sweetness shined brighter than her beautiful smile all day long!

This shot of the Maid of Honor sitting in the bathroom is one of my favorites from the day.

The precious bridesmaid dress are from BHLDN. I love the black lace that peeks through the bottom.
The Bride wore TOMS to her reception!

This photo of the Bride getting her hair done is another favorite. Her smile stayed that way all day!

My husband, Steve, and the Father of the Bride bonded over their mustaches within the first 5 minutes of the day!

Have you ever seen a more DARLING bride?!
Loved the moments Carol and her momma shared on her wedding day.
Carol bought each bridesmaid a clutch that fits their personalities… so cute.

It really doesn’t get much more stunning….

There was so much JOY with these 2! I’m telling ya, Carol was ALWAYS smiling.

The limo driver overheard the bridesmaids wanting McDonalds, so he drove thru during the ceremony! Now THAT is service!
We were definitely in nature! We all laughed so hard when we noticed a bridesmaids heel stabbed a leaf.

I’ve never seen 2 young people have so much ROMANCE in the way they looked at each other. I was eating it up!

This wedding was the loveliest day!
To Carol & Ethan and Trish & Dan… thank you so much for welcoming Steve & I into your lives on your most special day!! We had a blast witnessing the way you and your entire family LOVED. I hope the laughter and smiles NEVER END! :)

    Sara Lucero!!!!! I hardly have words. You captured this wedding beautifully! Although all of your work is gorg, I have learned that there are certain weddings/shoots that allow a photographer to completely expose herself, her style and her talent. This, my friend, is one of yours, and there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that you are gifted! Just beautiful, Sara!
