Emily & Hogan - Cape Charles, VA

The last wedding of our 2017 season was definitely one for the books! Emily & Hogan were married in her parents' backyard on the Eastern Shore and it was the perfect day, despite the moody weather. The days leading up to the wedding had been rainy and pretty miserable, but it cleared up that morning and stayed dry throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and even most of the reception! They had buried the bourbon a month prior {if you're unfamiliar with this southern tradition, check it out here...it's a favorite of mine for sure!} and it definitely did the trick!

One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the ceremony. In our first meeting, Emily told me that she wanted to have a circular ceremony setup, using gorgeous antique church pews provided by Eastern Shore Events & Rentals. I loved helping to bring her vision to life and I think it turned out to be one of my favorite setups ever!

This group was such a blast! The bridal party was rowdy and hilarious, and it was super apparent how much they love their friends. Hogan kept Emily laughing all night long, even after it started sprinkling later in the evening. Emily had decided to embrace the elements and wore white rain boots under her dress and she danced the night away with Hogan and partied with all their family and friends.

To round out a perfect evening, the couple arranged for a food truck to bring freshly baked pizzas for their guests to snack on. It was the coolest late night snack ever and their guests loved every bit of it!

I had the best time working with Leigh Skaggs Photography for the first time and I'm pretty much obsessed with the images she and her team captured. Here are just a few of my favorites! Be sure to check out her blog for even more!
