A Raspberry Plain Manor Wedding: Mr. & Mrs. Jeschke

A Raspberry Plain Manor Wedding

First of all, this past Saturday was a dream to photograph. Not only are Annie and Brendan so easy to work with, they also know how to plan a beautiful wedding!! The theme for the day was “a white wedding with French blue accents.” So you already know I’m going to love this one! And let me tell you: every detail was simply perfect! From the elegant floral arrangements to the four-tiered cake and everything in between, I was in heaven capturing everything.

Now, it was supposed to rain the entire day, but the weather ended up working out perfectly as well. The rain held off through the ceremony and all of our photos (YAY!). As soon as the reception started, it poured!! But it did stop long enough for us to get a few romantic portraits and have a fun send-off. So we got everything we needed, and Annie and Brendan were able to use that gorgeous backdrop for photos! Because obviously Raspberry Plain Manor is stunning, and they deserve some epic newlywed portraits to celebrate their marriage.

A little backstory about the couple.

Brendan is one of nine siblings. So when I say family played a big part of the day, I truly mean it! Brendan’s father, the senior pastor at The King’s Chapel in Clifton, officiated the ceremony. And Annie included family heirlooms, which I also loved. Her necklace and engagement ring belonged to her great grandmother, Beaulah Evelyn. There was so much love throughout the day, and it was an honor to see the two families join together as Annie and Brendan became husband and wife.

Not to mention, these two are simply made for each other. I already knew from their Vienna town green engagement session how cute they are together. It was so early (6am), but these two couldn’t stop smiling!! So I pretty much expected that on their wedding day as well. And as you can tell from the photos below, Annie and Brendan radiated happiness every single moment of the day. It was truly an honor to be part of such a special time in their lives.

A few of my favorite moments:

  • Annie and her mother crafted the cutest bridesmaid gifts! And she included a necklace for each bridesmaid inspired by a sentimental place during their relationship. So sweet!!
  • Dianna and Alyssa were coordinating the day, and I have to give them the BIGGEST thank you!! They made the day run so smoothly, and I always love working as a team to ensure the couple has the best day possible.
  • The flower girl and ring bearer stole the show the entire day. There were too many cute moments to count!!
  • Can we all agree Annie had the most twirlable wedding dress?? She looked so elegant as Brendan spun her around for a few photos – and on the dance floor!
  • Their church has this amazing tradition where the groom gets tossed in the air during the reception. Spoiler alert: it’s 100% worth it to scroll to the bottom of the photos to see a couple of those shots. Easily one of my favorite parts of the night!
  • Guests tossed lavender for their send-off. And yes, it smelled amazing!


Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Jeschke!! Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the day below!
