Hannah + Zach: Ault Park Rose Garden + MadTree Brewing Wedding Day

Hannah & Zach had an absolutely beautiful June wedding day and I am so excited to finally be able to share it with you. We had perfect weather for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony in the Rose Garden at Ault Park and an incredible time celebrating the new Mr. & Mrs. at their MadTree Brewing reception!

I started the morning off by meeting Hannah and her incredible bridesmaids at a hotel they were getting ready in. They had the cutest matching robes and were so excited for the day. I took a few detail photos of Hannah’s wedding stationary, jewelry, and sentimental items before it was time for her to get into her dress. When she was all ready, she spun around to show her mom & maid of honor. After seeing their reactions, she made a comment about how she didn’t think she was going to be emotional like they were . . . until she headed into the bathroom to see herself in the mirror for the first time. It was such a sweet moment and she had the absolute cutest reaction to seeing herself as a bride! After taking a moment for herself, she had a first look with her bridesmaids (they were so sweet!) followed by a first look with her dad. She told him he was NOT allowed to cry while looking at her so he did his best holding back the tears! Truly such a fun and relaxing morning and a perfect way to kick off a wedding day!

While I was hanging out with Hannah, my incredible second shooter Sam was in a different room in the same hotel hanging out with Zach and his groomsmen. From the looks of their photos, it looks like they had a fun morning as well! Zach’s mom helped him get his boutonniere on, all the guys got ready, and then they took some photos together afterwards!

After everyone was ready, it was time to head to Ault Park! Since this is a really close knit bridal party, Hannah wanted to have a first look with the groomsmen before her first look with Zach. This was the first time I had ever captured a first look like this and it was SO sweet!! Once this first look was finished, it was time the first look with Hannah & Zach. Usually I only talk about a groom’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time (by the way, Zach’s reaction to seeing Hannah was absolutely adorable) but Hannah’s reaction to seeing Zach was so precious, too! Cue all the emotions!! After first looks we took photos of the entire bridal party together before heading off with just Hannah & Zach for couples portraits. I love the variety of scenery that Ault Park offers and we had the best time exploring the gardens and finding fun little spots for photos!

After we finished up with portraits, it was time for the ceremony! Hannah & Zach’s ceremony took place in the Rose Garden at Ault Park. We got so unbelievably lucky with the weather and had an absolutely gorgeous day. Their ceremony was short & sentimental and after it was done we took a few family photos (but those are for Hannah & Zach to share!)

We took a few more photos outside of MadTree in the same spots we took their engagement photos and then they danced the night away! An incredible ending to an incredible day and I am so happy for Hannah & Zach to be starting this next chapter in life together!
