I don’t even know where to start, Kelly & Rabon’s special day was absolutely amazing.
From the moment I arrived at Grace Cottage, where Kelly was getting ready with her bridesmaids and her mother, there was this light thread of joy surrounding the whole day. Grace’s Cottage is an old church in Waterford, VA that has been converted into an Air B&B…complete with a bookshelf wall that made me think of Beauty & the Beast.
There was light jazz playing as the ladies prepared, and they even did some stretch routine’s together before the day started rolling. Kelly is beautiful, and in her dress, she was breathtaking.
Rabon prepared for the day by practicing with his fellow Marine’s in preparation for the Sword Party exit out of the ceremony, and showing his soon to be father – in – law, that he carries Kelly with him wherever he goes.
The ladies hid upstairs in the gorgeous barn at 48 Fields, while the gentlemen stayed in the gorgeous ceremony space and chatted with guests as they arrived early.
Once everyone took their seats, and the cutest flower girl ever finished walking down the aisle, the Innocenti Strings started to play Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral as Kelly was escorted down the aisle by her father.
The ceremony was officiated by a very close friend of Kelly & Rabon’s, and the two shared their own, handwritten vows.
To say that the rest of the day was just as breathtaking would be an understatement. It was also a whole lot of fun, so many amazing people leads to some great moments, including a great Beyonce moment by a guest!
Thank you again, Kelly & Rabon, for allowing me to capture such a wonderful, exciting, and beautiful moment in your lives.
What an amazing team of vendor’s for this gorgeous day!!!!
