Ty and I had the opportunity to shoot at one of our DREAM venues for Ben and Rosemary’s wedding day. Morais Vineyards has been on our bucket list since 2016! It was so exciting to finally have the opportunity to capture Ben and Rosemary’s gorgeous wedding day in what felt like a venue that is straight out of Europe!

We loved working alongside Taylor from Lauren Taylor Photography! See more sneak peeks of their photos here.

Ben and Rosemary met in high school. Rosemary had been talking to an administrator about using the auditorium stage to film a video for a dance project that she was working on. The administrator asked her if she had someone to film the project for her and she casually mentioned that her Mom was planning on helping her. It was then he asked her, “Do you know Ben Names?” And that is where their story began!

Ben ended up helping Rosemary film her dance project. This progressed into quite a friendship that eventually led them to being a couple. The majority of their relationship was spent long distance. Ben traveled off to college a year ahead of Rosemary and then they spent many miles a part as they pursued their different educational paths at their separate colleges. But their commitment to one another stayed the same. They were loyal, invested, and 100% committed to building their story, despite the miles that stood between them!

Ty and I loved celebrating with these two on their wedding day! They worked so hard to incorporate so many things that they valued into their perfect wedding day. Like their different cultural backgrounds represented in their menu choices! Their high school guidance counselor as the officiant of their ceremony which was so meaningful to them because he knew so much about their story. And truthfully, had seen it grow from the very beginning! Rosemary wore her sweet Momma’s veil and a jade ring that has been passed down through her family. It was the best day, but you’ll just have to watch their film to see it all :]

Ben and Rosemary, we are so grateful for you guys and the love you share! Some of our favorite parts of your wedding film are the beautiful words so many special people in your lives shared about you and your relationship! We’re excited for your future together and even more excited to think about all the times you’ll rewatch this film in the years to come to remember this first day as husband and wife! Enjoy!!
