Jenna and Ryan were married at the gorgeous Bull Run Golf Club in Haymarket, VA. The day began as a beautiful afternoon with blue skies and puffy white clouds. Jenna and Ryan started getting ready and prepared for their first look. I love first looks. They are so personal and heartfelt. It is such a wonderful time for a couple to get to express their feelings to one another without the rush of the day snatching those thoughts and words from each other. It is almost as if time stops and gives them a few moments to soak everything in. And then the day starts whirling again and off they go to the many other events and people they want to share their special day with.
This day was like no other. It was time for the ceremony and the wind was whipping and storm clouds were approaching. Jenna and Ryan had the comfort of knowing all of their portraits were already done as they decided whether or not to have their ceremony outside. They chose to take the chance and I held my breath as each minute passed. The lush greens, tall trees and pond were a perfect backdrop for their intimate ceremony. I could see why they wanted to take the chance and have their ceremony outside. The bridesmaids dresses fluttered beautifully in the breeze and Jenna’s veil blew behind her. We all celebrated as they said their I Do’s and kissed. It wasn’t until the guests started to head for the club that the first drop of rain was felt. We all were so excited to have experienced such a magical moment with them and were so thankful that on this day the weather was on our side.
There were so many personal touches with this wedding. Special gifts for the bridal party included floral robes and personalized beer bottles! The decorated golf cart, fans, a lemonade stand for guests to enjoy as they made their way to the ceremony area, unique escort cards displayed on antique shutters and a painted story of all their important firsts… first meeting, first date, engagement and I Do. It was a beautiful day!
