Zach’s mom, Lynn, and her outstanding crew had about an hour (maybe less?) to set all of this up. I’m in awe of how incredible it turned out!! (Fun Fact: This historic house was only just recently opened up to the public, so their’s was the first wedding in it outside of the Ellwood family. How cool is that?!?) ellwood_house_wedding_photography_17 Also, how AMAZING is that willow branch arrangement??
