I absolutely loved this wedding day! It was just one of those days when things come easy. Of course, photographing such a beautiful couple on the best day of their life is always a recipe for success and this day certainly did not disappoint. This Inn at the Old Silk Mill wedding was gorgeous!
Christina and Aaron exchanged vows at St Mary’s Church in Fredericksburg and then we made our way to Kenmore Plantation for bridal party and bride and groom portraits. It was such a beautiful day despite a temperature of about 170. Ok, I’m joking…maybe…. Everyone was a trooper though and the images we came away with were spectacular.
The only downside of the day came at cake time. You see, Peggy and I have been participating in a “Biggest Loser” challenge with some of her coworkers which meant I was not able to indulge in what was a beautiful looking cake. Even worse was at just about 9 or so fresh, homemade, ice cream sandwiches were passed around as a late night snack. That was just pure torture! It was also however, a very nice touch. If I were closer to my fitness goals I surely would have imbibed.
The perfect day of vows, celebration, tears of joy and laughter was finished off by an awesome sparkler send off as Christina and Aaron darted through the crowd and off to enjoy the rest of their lives together.
