September 24, 2017
It was September 09, 1950 when Kristin’s grandmother said “I do” to the love of her life. Sixty-seven years later, it was Kristin’s turn. She said the exact same words to her forever. Kristin even wore her grandma’s wedding band during her wedding. It was truly memorable.
Kristin and Josh got married on September 9th, 2017 at the beautiful Historic Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, VA. Their special day started with their first look. I could go on and write a whole lot about how emotional it was, but I will just provide a few details about it. Kristin and Josh were very excited about their first look. They have been anticipating it. Leading to that moment, Josh was patiently waiting while Kristin was just a few steps away behind him. I definitely felt the aura and excitement from the two. Just a step behind, Kristin tapped Josh’s shoulder and with no time wasted, Josh turned around and his world enlightened. His future wife in her gorgeous wedding dress, with a lightly pinned veil, stood before him. Oh man, he was the happiest man with that smile. They looked at each other, looked some more, then came the happy tears, and then Josh went around to check out Kristin’s dress before they gave each other a kiss. Okay, it was more than one kiss. Their first look was beautiful and mesmerizing. After a couple of minutes of personal space, Kristin and Josh were ready for their couple portraits.
Kristin and Josh picked the best venue to incorporate their rustic theme for their wedding! From the long barn tables decorated with greeneries, mason jars and a few hints of flowers, they achieved the look they wanted for their wedding. What made their tablescape extra special, were the Farmers Creamery mason jars that her mom collected. These mason jars are special to their family because Kristin’s grandmother used to work for Farmers Creamery back in the day. It was one of Kristin’s special request to photograph and I made sure I took plenty!
