I first met Sarah and Scott last October when we did their engagement photos. I was so happy and felt so blessed to be a part of their wedding day last weekend at Mountain Lake Hotel (where Dirty Dancing, one of my all time favorite movies, was made). Sarah’s wedding dress was custom made. Her something old and something borrowed were her grandmother’s pearl bracelet, something new was her wedding dress, and her something blue was her garter. I made sure to snap a photo of her shoes even though she decided to go barefoot instead. I loved the handmade decor behind the alter which had a beautiful view overlooking Mountain Lake. Sarah’s brother played the music for the ceremony.
This wedding was from back in August and I realized that it never got a proper blog post (being that this blog did not exist yet) so I want to share this beautiful summer wedding with you now that it is cold and dreary out. Erin and Mike were married at Sinkland Farms in Christiansburg, Virginia. The venue was perfect for their country themed wedding with their ceremony overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains followed by a gorgeous reception in the barn pavilion where I fell madly in love with their chandelier made of antique mason jars and vintage glass bottles. With a 50% chance of rain we were all keeping our fingers crossed that the weather would hold out… and it did! At least it held out until right before the kiss. There’s nothing quite like the sound of rain on a metal roof.
Here is the video that I put together from their wedding day. It’s the very first photo+video slide show that I have ever put together, but I had so much fun doing it and I cannot wait to make more for the weddings that I will be photographing this summer:
There are more photos from this wedding on my Facebook page if you are interested!
