This spring has sprung with the most fickle of weather, but it was clear from the start none of that was going to bother you (family photos outside, then under the tent, then back outside again, for example? 🙂 throughout your relaxed and elegantly DIY wedding celebration. But let’s back up a bit to some years ago when we worked with your sister at The Homestead. How could we have known way back then she’d be calling on your behalf last year to check our availability for you? So many couples become clients through personal connections of others, and your connection to Lindsay as well as Amanda and seeing them both again made the day all that more special.
Given your expansive family tree (ask Bill about his someday!), it was so touching watching you come down the aisle escorted by each of your dads, Whitney, and the tears they both let escape while Chris watched with a big smile on his face. How could he not? You looked so beautiful, despite the rain and humidity. (Okay, just between us girls, what’s your secret??) And after you danced with your mom, Chris, watching the bagpiper (surprise!) stroll into the carriage house to escort all of your guests upstairs to the lovingly decorated long farm tables overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains as the rain subsided and fog settled in over the valley below. Everything from your fun welcome bag (baby Corona’s & chips & salsa for Cinco de Mayo – perfect for Anne’s birthday, too!) to your rustic pretty invitation to the delightful stories Bill Cochran shared during your vows to your signature cocktails was perfectly thought out and felt so much like you guys.
It was a so fun to see your sorority sisters serenade you by candlelight, too–a clearly touching and meaningful break in the crazyfantastic dancing. But how could we forget that race through the sparklers to your car, waiting for you to take you off into the night and the start of your marriage together. It means so much to us that you included us in your day in such a meaningful fashion and a special shout out to Lindsey for telling your sister she just had to work with us. It was a perfect match. Just like you both. Congratulations!
