We have been anxious to show you the wedding of Heather & Charlie. These two are amazing and love each other so fiercely you can’t help but smile every time you are around them. They were married at the gorgeous Primland Resort in Meadows of Dan, VA. If you remember, we traveled up there this past spring to shoot their engagement session and that time spent there just made us more excited about the opportunity to go back and explore this hidden gem. The staff was exceptional and really made Heather & Charlie’s wedding one for the books.
They were set up in these fantastic suites that overlooked the property. The guys did the typical getting ready routine consisting of some reminiscing , a little drinking and lots of laughs.
Hello men!! These guys knew how to work it. Don’t you love the different color ties. Such a great idea!
I could go on all day about the beautiful details that Heather & Co. put together for the weekend. I seriously love the calla lilies in the girls bouquet. Lesa from Cana Mt. Airy Florist did an exquisite job.
I’ll let the following photos do the talking but I do have to mention the delicious chocolate covered strawberries that flanked the cake. YUM! I am still thinking about them.
The ceremony was an emotional one and it all started with the walk down the aisle. Such a sweet moment.
Can you spot the ring bearers trying to open the ring boxes they are holding. Such curious boys.
After the ceremony they released two doves in honor of their union. Heather told me that the doves will fly back to their home even from 2 hours away (by car). They circled the property for a bit to find their bearings and then off they went.
You know the saying that the people you choose to surround yourself with are a reflection back on the type of person you are. Well, Heather & Charlie surrounded themselves with the greatest group of friends. The bridal party were troopers. Although it was only the beginning of October it was one of the first cold days we have had around here. Add to that being on top of a mountain with lots of wind and I am surprised we were able to get everyone to not only pose for the picture but actual have fun doing it. You guys rock!
LOVE! They really were such naturals in front of the camera.
GORGEOUS BRIDE ALERT! My favorite on the left. Heather, you are stunning!
First dance time. They were all giggles and smiles throughout their dance.
The mother/son and father/daughter dances were emotional. It was touching to watch.
Then the party got rolling. This is the first time we shot a wedding that featured a caricature artist, Brian Vasilik, and I loved it! It was so fun to watch him work throughout the night. Plus it added a nice level of entertainment to their reception.
I could photograph Heather’s ring ALL DAY LONG. It just makes me speechless.
Of course, lots of dancing fun was had till late into the night. Even the kids were still up and celebrating.
Heather & Charlie – you guys are fantastic. We love being a part of your special day and can’t ask for better clients and friends. Lots of love and congratulations! S&B
