This past Saturday Rush Videos was honored to capture the Dream Field Farms wedding of Shelby and Zack in Fitzpatrick, AL. Located just a few minutes outside of Montgomery, AL, we found it to be the perfect wedding venue for Southern style with a beautiful rustic barn feel.
As we arrived, we were quickly greeted by the staff to tell us about the venue and the wedding day. This being the first wedding in the newly constructed barn had everyone excited. Floral was being setup, food was being prepped and wedding cakes arriving. Soon we found Shelby getting ready in the guest house located on the property with her sweet dog Skye, a beautiful toy Australian shepherd. Although Skye never quite warmed up to us, we were able to capture some fun video of her getting ready as well.
Shelby finished getting ready and stepped into her dress, Zack waited patiently down by the lake at the end of a pier for the bride and groom pre-meet. As Shelby made her way down, Zack’s excitement grew. With cameras in place, Zack turned to see Shelby in her dress for the first time and you could see their love for one another. After a few moments alone, the photographer started the photos, and we followed along to capture some stunning and fun moments.
Guests were beginning to arrive and soon were seated in the barn’s wedding area. As music played, Zack and the pastor entered to take their place at the alter area. Next the flower girl came in walking the cutest little toy Australian shepherd named Skye. The ring bearer followed carrying a sign that read,”No going back Zack”. This was not only the hashtag on social media for their wedding day, but a reminder to Zack that this was the day. As everyone in attendance stood to their feet Shelby was escorted down the aisle by her mother. Once Zack took Shelby’s hand, the pastor opened in a word of prayer and read a passage of scripture. After a brief word about marriage, the pastor read the vows which Shelby and Zack repeated. After exchanging rings they were pronounced husband and wife, a kiss sealed the marriage. As Shelby and Zack made their way back up the aisle, everyone clapped and cheered as a way of celebrating the new marriage.
Everyone was starting to enter the reception as the buffet of food was waiting. The line formed for the buffet and everyone sat down to enjoy the feast. Not long after, Zack and Shelby were introduced in to share their first dance. Following that, Shelby shared a dance with her mother which quickly turned into a fun time of family and friends. Although this may not sound very traditional, you have to know Zack and Shelby, they are just very fun loving down to earth people. Keeping with tradition, Zack did invite his mother to share a dance with him to the song,”Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. As everyone enjoyed mingling and a little dancing, the time had come for the garter and bouquet toss. As all the single ladies lined up, Shelby tossed the bouquet. Tradition says who ever catches the bouquet is the next to marry, guess we’ll have to keep tabs on that one. The single guys lined up as Zack went for the garter toss. This was no ordinary garter, when Zack stood up for the toss, a table top size set of red bloomers went flying. As it was caught everyone laughed and had a few jokes over it. As mentioned earlier, Zack and Shelby are fun people and made every effort to make sure everyone enjoyed the day and had a laugh or two.
The guests moved outside and formed a tunnel for Zack and Shelby to exit through. As the newly married couple exited, everyone released pink balloons, symboling well wishes sent up for the the new marriage. Zack didn’t miss the opportunity to dip Shelby halfway through and lay a kiss on her. This made all the guests along with family, clap, cheer and whistle. The staff at Rush Videos was definitely blessed to meet such awesome people and to capture the Dream Field Farms wedding of Shelby and Zack.
Congratulations to Shelby and Zack ! Thank you for allowing Rush Videos to be a part of your Dream Field Farms wedding day and may God bless you both as you begin your new life together.
