Few people light up a room like Libby Koerner Issitt. Her April 27 wedding to Andrew was sheer joy, and you can almost ‘feel’ the emotions through wedding day images by Rachel Moore. Weddings are a chain of emotions shared by two people in love and with those who love them, and we asked Libby her favorite recollections of the day. Libby says, “There are so many unbelievable moments that will stay with me forever; the first moment I saw Andrew when I walked across the lawn; the feeling of excitement and nervousness I had when I held on to my dad’s arm right before we walked down the aisle; the moment that the Pastor announced us man and wife when we looked back at all our family and friends and I could see their happiness for us; how proud I was when Andrew gave his thank you speech that he was my husband; I can go on and on….it was such a remarkable day.”
Libby says she’s a small town girl from Ohio and Andrew’s a sweet southern boy from Tennessee, so they wanted they wedding to reflect that. A good friend of Libby’s suggested that her style was simple fresh country and it clicked. Libby and Andrew wanted to make their wedding simple and classy with a relaxed country feel, and they thought Cedarwood’s natural farm environment and beautiful aesthetic was the perfect fit for who they are and how they wanted to celebrate their wedding day.
Happy times caught on camera preserve moments forever, and Libby says her favorite photos include the shot of herself and her niece giggling together in the front lawn, and the amazing group photo of all their wedding guests celebrating in front of the barn. The photos (numerous!) of Libby and Andrew laughing together are our favorites because that is how we remember them spending their day at Cedarwood.
Libby and Andrew, you have etched yourselves in our hearts. Thanks for allowing Cedarwood to assist you with your wedding. Special thanks to Rachel Moore for sharing images with us!
