I was so excited for the opportunity to photograph Sara and Matt’s wedding with Corey of Skyryder Photography, I hadn’t been to this gorgeous venue since Emily and Brett’s Boxtree Lodge Wedding a few years ago. It was also wonderful to finally get to work alongside of some of my favorite wedding vendors like Lexi of The Perfect Fairytale who was their wedding planner and Sarah of Pumpernickel Pickle who provided the delicious food [if you ever work with her, make sure you try the donuts with fried chicken on them, HEAVEN). Thunder crashed throughout the wedding ceremony, but the torrential downpour held off until we were all safely inside of Boxtree Lodge for their wedding reception. RSP Entertainment did a great job DJing; Corey and I were busting a move to Beastie Boys along with the Mother of the Bride.
The lace detailing on Sara’s ivory wedding gown was to die for, I love the buttons on the back too. The wedding bouquet by Green Designs in Roanoke had a gorgeous pink, green, white, and ivory color palette with hydrangeas, anemones, roses, and peonies. Sara and Matt’s chose a delicious naked wedding cake from For The Love Of Sweets with lots of fresh strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries and an etched wood cake topper that said “love” in beautiful calligraphy. Sara and I are both sparkle and glitter addicts which you might have noticed from the “best day ever” wedding fans, sequined tablecloths, and sparkling strands of light at their wedding reception. How cute is the bride’s half braid faux hawk? Major hair envy.
