I love when couples really personalize the wedding celebration to their own tastes.  Courtney and Jim did exactly that.  They made their own home brew for a cocktail hour they shared with guests before the ceremony, they had couples married for varying lengths stand up and give them advice during the ceremony, Courtney wore a gorgeous tea-length dress, and they topped the whole thing off with pies in place of the traditional cake!  Neverland Farms was the perfect setting for their laid-back family event! 

The sun cast amazing golden light on the couple during the ceremony…


and these images of the wedding party are too much fun not to share! :o)



Thanks for looking!

Courtney and Jim – Your joy on this day was overflowing and contagious!  Thank you for letting us capture it for you!

– Mel and Sean

    I like how the horse is trying to get in on the action in the bride shot. Such a beautiful place for a wedding! Another fantastic job by the McLellans.
