Emily and Jeff have been looking forward to Memorial Day weekend 2013 for almost 2 years! With that much time to plan a wedding you can bet it was going to be spectacular! The happy couple tied the knot this past weekend during a beautiful outdoor wedding at Veritas Winery!
The day began with the bridesmaids and mother’s of the bride and groom relaxing together at a quaint house they rented in Bellair. To ensure everyone was getting ready for the wedding in style, Emily bought robes for each of the ladies in her bridal party with their names and the wedding date embroidered on the back. We absolutely love this thoughtful (and practical) detail! After hair and makeup was complete they traveled to Veritas where Emily finished getting ready in the Bridal Suite. Her stunning ivory dress and glittery Jimmy Choo shoes were fit for a princess and she looked lovely as she eagerly anticipated seeing her prince who was enjoying time in the barrel room with his groomsmen.
As guests arrived for the ceremony they were greeted with a sign that asked them to “pick a seat, not a side” to symbolize the joining of these two special families. The celebration of Emily and Jeff was certainly a family affair as they said their vows amidst so many loved ones. We loved hearing Claire Goodman of Sacred Ground Ceremonies officiate the ceremony and eloquently lead this happy couple into marriage!
Enjoy looking through pictures from their romantic day and be sure to keep an eye our for more wedding pictures tomorrow!
