Julia grew up riding horses. She is a country girl at heart and wanted to do a shoot that incorporated horses and the feel of hat day at the derby. Growing up she loved watching the hat day at the races where all of the ladies would get dressed up and wear fancy headpieces, so her love for horses and memories of the fancy hats are what inspired the shoot (and the fancy headpiece).

Why did you have an intimate wedding?
As far back as I can remember, I have always known that I wanted my wedding to be a day that celebrated my husband and I. I didn’t want anything flashy or over the top because that simply is not us. Family is extremely important to us both, so we wanted a weekend that brought our two families together in a relaxing and comfortable environment so that everyone could get to know each other and celebrate.
