As I drove up to New Kent on Friday afternoon, I had extremely limited visibility on the interstate. I thought over and over again, "Please not tomorrow. Please not tomorrow!" I was so worried the weather would let us down. As I pulled off the interstate for the rehearsal, the clouds parted and the sun peeked down at us. It was a good sign.
Saturday was even more beautiful. Throw in thoughtfully planned details and we had a priceless day! Casey and Chris did an outstanding job choosing their vendors. Don't worry, they did have a real photographer there. These are just the ones I snapped with my iPhone. :)
Picture it: those gorgeous doors opening to reveal Casey, in all her bridal glory. Chris sobbed, which made me cry. Casey cried, which made me cry even more. Good thing for waterproof eye makeup!
This is their real cake, but the big surprise of the day was their April Fool's joke! They wanted to do something that wouldn't give anyone a heart attack...so they came up with the idea to drop their cake before cutting it. Don't worry, they used a fake cake. The crowd went wild! I did take a video, but the quality is so poor. (hey videographers, NEVER hire me!! mmmkayyy!)
The sweetest, most caring pair! I loved working with the two of you. I look forward to keeping up with your bright future!
Flowers by Morrison's of Williamsburg were, as usual, STUNNING! Arlene used succulents and I melted when I saw them. Perfect, perfect!!!
Casey and Chris, have fun in St. Lucia!!!! Thank you for letting me be part of your story!
I cannot thank my assistant, Kelsey, enough for her hard work. And to my cousins, thank you for driving up to lend a helping hand! You guys are the real MVP!
Stay tuned for REAL pictures from Sharon Elizabeth Photography! :)
