I love everything about a Howe Farm wedding. What an incredible venue! Cherry contacted me back in January of 2015 for their open house when Howe Farm had just opened up. Little did I know that I would develop an enduring relationship with this incredible venue and eventually photography Cherry’s wedding! What an amazing honor it was to spend the day with her and Jeremiah and their amazing families! As you will see below, there was lots of laughter and fun but also some wonderfully quiet and deep moments captured as well!
Cherry and Jeremiah have a great connection with each other and I’m going to share some insights into their relationship throughout the blog post!
But first, before we get to the photos, check out the talented team that helped make Cherry and Jeremiah’s dream day into a reality!

Rich: What did you first notice about each other?
Cherry: His smile/eyes. [When] we made eye contact for the first time and his eyes lit up and he smiled from ear to ear!
Jeremiah: Her gorgeous smile and her dimples!
Rich: What stands out the most about the moment you were proposed to?
Cherry: How nervous he was. He was facing away from me and spun around onto his knees so quick it startled me. He proposed less than 50 feet from where my step dad proposed to my mom- and he didn’t even know.
Rich: What’s one of the wildest / most adventurous things you’ve ever done with each other?
Cherry: We still need to sky dive! But the craziest thing was when we went kayaking and we both were bored cause the family was being slow. So he kept standing up in our kayaks. It was funny until Jeremiah got flipped and had to swim halfway down the river.
Jeremiah: Driving up to the ocoee during a storm just to spend time with one another.
Rich: Describe your memories around the moment you first realized Jeremiah was more special to you than a typical friend.
Cherry: When we decided, the next day, after our first date that we were going to set a record for spending the most consecutive days together. We spent approx 45 together in a row.
Rich: Recount a moment when Jeremiah surprised you in a way that made you love him more.
Cherry: He worked side jobs and kept me in the dark to pay for my engagement ring. I thought he was broke but he was saving for my ring!
Rich: Why are you still in love with each other?
Cherry: I love and admire, respect him more every day. Instead of tiring of him, I find more I love about him.
Jeremiah: Because she is always there for me through my ups and downs.
Rich: When do you feel most loved by Jeremiah?
Cherry: He never leaves me without kissing me and telling me he loves me. He will kiss me, walk a couple feet, then hurry back and kiss me and tell me he loves me again- usually does it more than twice
