Wedding days can be a funny thing. Sometimes I arrive at a venue before the wedding party when it’s still calm. Well, vendors are usually around setting up and doing their thing, but the chaos of the day hasn’t really started until the bride and groom arrive. That’s how my day started at Rose Hill Manor – setting up, scoping out the light, waiting for the day to really begin.
When Lisa and Neal and their wedding party arrived though, sure it got a little more vibrant and celebratory. But these two were just super relaxed and taking in their day. No drama, no stress, no last minute problems to solve. It was amazing to be able to have that kind of environment and I think it’s a big part of keeping us completely on schedule – almost down to the minute for a while there!
Of course there were smiles and cheers and big hugs and deep laughter. Everything a day should have. Including a bride who met her groom at the end of the aisle, encouraged by the love of their guests, to exchange their vows to become husband and wife. Which naturally was the universal cue to let the partying begin!
And so it did! Enjoy highlights from Lisa and Neal’s romantic pink and yellow Rose Hill Manor wedding in Leesburg, VA!
Special thanks the team that helped make the day great!
