We are walking through my favorite 2016 photos and today, we are looking through the ceremonies I had the honor of helping them create memories they will cherish forever! 🙂 I made sure to not only include some of my favorite moments but also some details I thought were great ideas. From a rose petal display to a chest full of blankets for those colder weddings to both grandmothers walking down the aisle as flower girls, there are countless ideas out there!
More importantly, the ceremony is more than just the details. It’s a beautiful, sacramental time for two to become one. This past year, I had many couples who chose to write their own vows. It’s a heartfelt moment listening to their promises. It takes a lot of courage to stand in front of their families and pour out their feelings to each other and God, but there is something so special about that moment they will never regret. One thing I try to encourage my couples to look into a wedding videographer because they are able to take those vows and design the movie around it. Watching my couple’s video makes me tear up every time! Want to check out one of my favorite videographers in VA? Check out Simon Cook Film’s work HERE!!
Rose petal display for guests to grab on their way to their seat. LOVE!!!!
A sweet moment after Brittany walked up the aisle. <3
The groom and the bride’s dad had a shot tradition that carried on the wedding day!
Both mothers came together for a hug before Sam walked down the aisle. So sweet!
Pews outside? Why not!!! A lovely detail Big Spring Farm offers at their weddings!
Love that split of a second moment when the father of the bride looks over at his daughter!
The sweetest flower girls! Don’t you agree? 🙂
Some were at the wedding in spirit. <3
A chandelier hanging from a tree? Why not!
Old House Vineyards tradition — Locking a lock on the bridge and throwing the key into the pond!
For those late fall weddings, blankets are a great touch!
Sweet reaction seeing his love walking towards him. <3
Horse drawn carriage taking the bride and groom away from the ceremony. Magical!
