Inn at the Old Silk Mill Wedding
Meghan + Adam
When you know, you know. That’s often the theme when I meet new couples and listen to them tell me the story of how they met. They just knew. Right then, right away. Sometimes without even having exchanged words. It’s beautiful and reminds me that indeed there are greater forces at play in this world other than those we can see #God #love
So, despite how cheesy it sounds that’s kind of the way Peggy and I felt about Meghan and Adam when we met them last year at the Bridal Show Under the Stars at The Inn at the Old Silk Mill. They were our kind of people, down to earth and fun. Meghan was from the Woodbridge VA area and Adam Grew up in in NYC (New York City…if you don’t know…) We had a great conversation at the show and they explained that they were going to actually get married in New York but were going to have their wedding reception at the Silk Mill.
Everything wound up working out perfectly. We met prior to their wedding to formally discuss details and decided that we’d go to a few locations in the Downtown Fredericksburg area prior to the beginning of the reception. We drove to nearby Fredericksburg Station for photos and eventually returned back The Inn at the Old Silk Mill for more photos including few family portraits. It was really a great time hanging out with them and we were able to get to know each other more similar to the way things work during an engagement session, no pressure and fun! They indeed really were our kind of people. I’m sure it helped that they were already married and didn’t have all of those pre ceremony jitters that normally happen on wedding days but either way they were super cool people, just as I’d thought!
The reception was also a great time. Both of their families were fantastic and their friends were as well. It’s incredible what a reflection of people their friends and family are. I think my favorite part of the reception was the music. Old school hip-hop and R&B. And by Old School I don’t mean songs made in the last 18 years. I mean proper 90’s hip-hop like the music I grew up on (I’m old ok!). Absolutely the best decade of bar none. Well done DJ!!
Meghan and Adam’s day turned out absolutely perfect and the classy yet subtle décor reflected them perfectly as well. Meghan’s choice of cocktail length wedding dress and Adam’s navy blue suit, sans tie, complemented their style and gave them a quintessential “cool without saying” vibe. The truth is, they are cool people and it was an incredible pleasure to spend the day with them as they celebrated their marriage with family and friends. Thank you both so much for having me there to capture your celebration and so many images I love. I’ll see you guys the next time I’m back in NYC to grab a slice of pizza!
