Rustic and Intimate Wedding in the Woods
Wedding Date: September 12, 2020
High school junior Hayley Zappa met high school senior Scott Jewett at a graduation party. After their first connection over party snacks and conversation, their relationship grew. They soon discovered their dads had worked together and they had met as little kids many years before. Fast-forward to 2019 deer hunting opening day: Sitting in a stand together, Hayley dozed off, then woke to Scott, a small box and a ring, as he asked her to be his hunting partner for life. With a small, stylish wedding that featured a unity ceremony, Hayley and Scott spent the day basking in the warmth of friends and family as they celebrated the beginning of their life together. The setting, on rustic land belonging to Hayley’s father, was serene and mystical. The greens and cream shades of the bride’s gown and bridesmaids’ dresses coordinated with the color palette—and the towering trees. Pops of pink accented the lush florals. The bride’s father fashioned ceremony benches from timber on the property for another personal touch.
