Winter Wedding at Lingrow Farm | Judy & Josiah

I have a confession to make, dear Reader.  Please don’t send me angry emails when I tell you this.  The truth is…I love winter.  Phew–there, I said it.  Ok, so it’s really cold, and sometimes mushy outside, and it’s a pain to drive in the snow.  But I love how the world looks when it’s covered in a new blanket of snow.  I love the magical feeling I get when the snow falling from the sky makes everything look like a snow globe.  I even love the way it smells – so clean and fresh.  Autumn is still my favorite season, but winter?   She’s a very close second.

I had an opportunity to photograph a winter wedding the week before Christmas 2009 at Lingrow Farm with my good friend, Amanda Wilson.  When Amanda and I get together, we are seriously like peanut butter and jelly.  Like peas and carrots.  Like Wonder Twin powers, activate!  When you have your good friend at your side, you feel like there is nothing you can’t do.  And the bride and groom? Judy and Josiah were such a cool couple with a ton of amazing details planned for their wedding, all the way down to their very own custom designed logo.   Add it up, dear Reader:  Cool couple + gorgeous venue + amazing details + snow + my favorite super talented photographer friend shooting with me = complete and total AWESOMENESS.  So, take a trip down memory lane with me and enjoy the awesomeness that is Judy and Josiah’s winter wedding.

Judy and Josiah met in a record store in California, and music is a passion that they both share.  They had their engagement photos taken at the record store, and carried the theme through in their wedding.  I love this concert poster they designed!  These first three images are by Amanda.

Lingrow Farm has this great deck on the second floor of the barn; since it was winter they had the whole deck covered in translucent plastic and heated to a toasty warm temperature.  The lighting was just beautiful.

I l.o.v.e. this shot by Amanda.  It’s just something about the way she cropped it that just sucks me in every time I see it.

Oh, Vanilla Pastry Studio, I would recognize your cupcakes anywhere.  Next two images by Amanda.

Jessica - I was planning a december wedding for this year(2012). I leave very near to Lingrow Farm and never knew it was there till looking thru a magazine. I had looked on their web site and was wondering if they did winter weddings as they show none on the web site. Thank you so much for showing the beautiful photos. Based on what I have seen from this page I will be making a phone call in the morning! Thank you again!

Sandy - Hi Jessica! Glad I could help. I do love winter weddings and all that snow. You are going to have a beautiful wedding–be sure to give me a call! ;)
