Saturday was my first wedding back from maternity leave and OH MY GOODNESS was it such a great wedding to come back to! It was so much fun jumping back into it- I really have missed the excitement of a wedding day! Plus, Josh and Caroline are the sweetest couple & just radiate how much they are in love with each other! I loved how Josh would steal a kiss from Caroline at every point that he could throughout the day and evening!
They had their ceremony at the gorgeous Christ Lutheran Church in Roanoke, Virginia & her dress was THE perfect pick for a church ceremony, and she honestly looked like royalty! I loved all the special details that they incorporated- from the veil that has been passed down in her family and worn by over 10 other happy Brides, to the ring box that Josh's brother made from them out of the Christmas tree he proposed next to, the pearls that once belonged to her Grandmother, and so many other sentimental pieces. I just love when couples really make their wedding day their own with details like that!!
After the ceremony, we headed out to the Braeloch at Glenburn Farms and Boxtree in Vinton, Virginia and were met with the most spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the city of Roanoke. The weather was so perfect- not too hot, not too cold- we could have stayed out for portrait time forever! Such a dream!! The reception was such a blast- the band, The Finns by Sam Hill Entertainment had everyone up and dancing all night!
Congratulations Josh & Caroline!! I am SO excited for you both as you begin your new life together! Marriage is such a blessing & I know you are both going to rock at it!! Enjoy your Hawaii Honeymoon!!!
A special thank you to the AMAZING vendors from today!! Oh my goodness was everything so perfect!!
