Inside The Cotter’s Romantic Vogue Wedding at Jorgensen Farms

When Bella & Garrett first reached out to me about their wedding day I knew it was going to be something extra special.

For starters, their love for each other was genuinely so kind and pure I could sense their affection for one another through the zoom screen. They shared how they had met in anatomy lab and it took about 2 YEARS before Garrett asked Bella out, but ever since they had only grown more affectionate toward each other.

I got to know them at our engagement sessions (which, if pride and prejudice style hometown horse-filled sessions are your jam, you’re gonna get teary-eyed over this) and was so eager to capture their wedding day.

On this warm March morning, the girls watched Princess Bride while getting ready, taking breaks between mascara applications to quote iconic lines from the film and exchange hugs with each other.

They savored the Jorgensen bridal suites and fresh breakfast while the boys joked about Shrek and belly-laughed over Garrett’s personalized gifts for each of them just across the way.

The parents huddled in the corners of the rooms, teary eyed at the sight of their kids all dressed up. 

I remember holding back tears of my own as Bella’s father exchanged the most meaningful gift to his daughter on her wedding morning—a necklace she had worn as a child that once was broken, now fixed and made new.

Bella’s mom and bridesmaids helped her finalize her look and enjoyed the calm company as guests started to arrive. Mom wiped a tear away watching her twin children all grown up and dressed for the occasion.

When the ceremony began, guests were welcomed into Jorgensen: The Gardens’ venue to live music, candle light, and a stunning greenery wall.

 The ceremony tied the couple together through emphasizing their faith, compassion for one another, and deep love for their current and future families.

As the guests made their way to cocktail hour, it began to rain.

The newlyweds slow danced to the sound of thunder rolling in, as warm spring rain ushered in their first few moments of marriage.

The reception was set for a cozy celebration—guests could enjoy hot tea and cider, candlelight table scapes, local dessert, and the best of Jorgensen’s plated meals.

After heartwarming speeches from family, the Cotters danced the night away with their loved ones before ending the night with a last dance and a bubble exit.
