They chose the historic Rosemont Manor in Berryville, VA, for their wedding. They planned to have the wedding on the lawn in front of the Manor House, but just for good measure the bridal party also practiced on the porch. Good thing they did, because it rained throughout the entire ceremony, and so that’s where the ceremony was held!
The rehearsal dinner was at the Garbers’ house (!), which definitely was a lot of work for the family to get everything ready, but was a total success and so much fun. I took a million pictures of the rehearsal dinner at my mother-in-law’s request and plan to share a few soon, after I do some editing.
As I was a reader in the wedding and Elliott was a groomsman, I couldn’t take any photos for awhile once the wedding began, but it was so tasteful and so lovely. The rain didn’t detract from anything; instead it seemed to make it more intimate and unforgettable. The wonderful reception included family-style dining on chicken and mashed potatoes, caramel apples for favors, Pumpkin Spice and Maple Walnut Crunch cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, and plenty of dancing with a fabulous DJ. Lena partied along with all of us… our little social butterfly!
