Taylor and Adam's wedding at the Lavender Heights Bed and Breakfast was a picturesque event. The day was gorgeous and the bride was just as much so. The wedding day was actually only the second time I had met Taylor and I first met Adam during his getting ready photos. This is not my normal practice but an exception was made as the day was a special event put together by fellow Virginia Wedding and Event Network (VAWE) member and friend, Sarah Wellington. All of the vendors participating were asked to do so free of charge in order to bless the couple who would have had no way of having such a spectacular day under any other circumstances. It was my privilege to participate and an honor to be a part of such a blessed day. The way everything came together was spectacular and the bride and groom were two of the sweetest people i have ever met.
Taylor looked absolutely stunning in the dress provided by Simply Modern Bridal. I loved the unique touch of the white gloves which provided a throw back look to perfectly compliment Taylor's classic beauty. Adam's James Bond inspired suit looked quiet dapper as well. It was finished off with complementary aqua and purple handkerchiefs to perfectly match the decor provided by Occasions by M&K as wells the favors by The Popcorn Bag and Flowers by Floral Palette.
Lavender Heights Bed and Breakfast provided the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and reception and the hospitality couldn't have been better. The grounds were gorgeous and the staff were exceptional. I loved how many options we had for pictures both inside and outside and Taylor and Adam's guests were gracious enough to allow me to steal them during the cocktail hour so we could explore and few that caught my eye.
Having not had the chance to get to know the bride and groom like I usually do I wasn't sure what to expect. I was blown away however, by the glowing words of the pastor, as well as those of their friends and family. Throughout the day, as I got to know them more, I was struck by their sincerity and humble appreciation for the day that had been assembled for them. It was truly an honor to have been asked to participate in such a blessed day and to the bride and groom I wish all the best!!
