wedding: katie+jonathan 09.06.09

being snowed in today has given me the opportunity to get caught up on the blog. one down, just two more '09 weddings to go! it has been great fun to relive katie and jonathan's september 6th wedding again by looking through so many favorites. trying to decide which ones to share here on the blog has been a difficult task to say the least.

katie and jonathan's countryside wedding was held at glendower in scottsville, virginia, the home of the bride's family. i loved all of their personal touches from the vintage tractor adorned in flowers, the wedding cake lovingly made by a family friend, the bagpiper, the antique quilts covering the hay bales used as seats during the ceremony, not to mention how they utilized the family's heirloom vases to hold the flowers on the tables at the reception. the bride's mother and grandmother created all of the floral arrangements including the bride and bridesmaid's bouquets and the men's boutonnières.... amazing!

the ceremony was held on the hillside overlooking the vineyards, then cocktails were served up at the house immediately following... soon after, the party continued and a good time was had by all! the guests danced well into a mild late summer's evening under the big tent decorated in twinkling lights....oh to be summer again!

I ran across your blog and your work is just lovely! This wedding looks as if it was a lot of fun and you documented it so well. I love the quilts on the bales of hay! What a clever idea for a wedding held in the countryside, not to mention the old door with "K & J getting hitched" painted on it and the beautiful flowers. Love, love, love this wedding!! --- Amanda (from Santa Fe, NM!)
