Andy + Jocelyn | Breathtaking Wedding With A View

Andy and Jocelyn’s celebrated a breathtaking wedding with a view and an epic sunset! Andy and Jocelyn’s breathtaking wedding with a view was at The Historic Bell Hill Wedding Venue. I just loved how they included their sweet pups, Little One and Pearl. Ok, I am 100% biased because of the adorably sweet pups….but would you have guessed otherwise?

Jocelyn was surrounded by such an amazing group of ladies the entire morning. Her momma, sister, friends, future mother-in-law. They were are incredibly funny and sweet! I just loved the environment from the moment my assistant and I walk through the door! Now guys, they were quite comical! Walking into their cabin it was immediately full of laughter and jokes non-stop. It is very apparent that Andy and Jocelyn surround themselves with people as genuine and as kind-hearted as they are themselves.

I absolutely loved this day for them. However, there was a chance of rain! But it was very apparent that there wasn’t a thing in the world that would throw a wrench in their day. Part of their breathtaking wedding with a view was the incredible sky! You can see the storms off in the distance from the top of the bluff. The sky was showing off for their ceremony. Finally, it put on a real show at sunset which was probably some of my favorites. Andy and Jocelyn laughed throughout their entire day!

I am a sucker for pearls! So, I was absolutely in love with the jewelry set her momma got her! Jocelyn had so many sweet details speckled into her day that reflected great sentiment. Another was her grandmother’s garter that she also wore on her wedding day.

Andy and Jocelyn had a taco bar from Moe’s for dinner. If I ever get to have a vote for dinner at weddings….it will forever be taco bars!! Seriously, these two had it all! It was elegant and relaxing. The perfect mix for a perfect day. After that, their gorgeous day wrapped up with a phenomenal dj (618 Pro), epic dance moves and a beautiful stroll through the lights. Below, you will get to relive their day with them. So, I hope you enjoy scrolling through their breathtaking wedding with a view as well!

  1. […] While it was pretty cold, the views from the balcony were worth the wintery chill!! Andy and Jocelyn are proof that you can have gorgeous images regardless of the season and temperature. Jocelyn was such a trooper, because she really wanted to wear a her short-sleeved dress! In between our time outside, we also took full advantage of The Historic Bell Hill’s gorgeous indoor spots. It helped warm us all up! We do have warmer temps in our sights for their September wedding!! […]
