It could’ve been a dream. They flew back from California for their wedding in Middleburg Virginia. It was a small gathering of family and beloved friends in a tiny church with red carpets, tall ceilings, and huge windows to let the light in. Jolie (a blogger, writer, and incredible all around gal) put on her gloves, her tea length wedding dress and red lipstick and met Aaron at the alter. There was singing and laughing during the ceremony, then a dinner at a small french restaurant a few blocks away. Aaron is smart, witty, and so lucky to have found Jolie, who is generous, funny, and one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met.
There was no first dance, no speeches, just gifts, hugs and the two of them making their way around the restaurant to greet everyone who made the trip in to celebrate with them. When the time came to eat dessert, Jolie and Aaron cut their ceramic fox adorned cake and decided they wanted to serve the people they love, spending part of their reception cutting the cake and handing out the pieces to the guests who wandered over to say hello. The day ended at sunset in fields in autumn and I fell in love with why I do what I do all over again. It really could’ve been a dream.
Vintage inspired weddings, be still my heart. <3
