Elizabeth + Lance: Married | Historic McFarland House Wedding

Elizabeth + Lance were married at the stunning Historic McFarland House in Martinsburg, WV and had an absolutely beautiful day despite the extreme downpours.  It seems like rain has plagued much of our wedding season, but this is the only day that it became an all day event.  I always feel bad for my couples when this happens, especially if they planned an outdoor ceremony as Elizabeth and Lance had.  The day prior to their wedding, when the forecast seemed certain of rain, I sent a quick email to her offering a few suggestions for outdoor photos and quickly reminded her that the most important part of the day is that she gets to marry her best friend.  However, she did not need to be reminded of that.  She quickly responded that she is completely ok with whatever happens, trusts us, and that her main focus and excitement was based on marrying Lance, not the weather.  I knew right then and there it was going to be a perfect day.  And it was.

Elizabeth and Lance are such a fun couple and have a tight, best-friend bond in their relationship.  This is always the perfect recipe for a successful marriage.  I had not met Lance prior to the wedding day so I wasn't quite sure how their interactions would be during the bride and groom portraits, but they were so sweet and kind to one another I loved every second of photographing them and being able to document their love.  Because of their positive attitudes about the day, despite the less-than-stellar weather, they had an amazing, love-filled wedding and celebrated well into the evening with all their closest friends and family.

Congratulations again, Elizabeth and Lance, we wish you all the blessings you deserve and know your marriage will be a beautiful one.  Thank you for trusting us to document this important day in your lives - we are forever grateful!

I have fallen deeply in love with all the gorgeous wedding gowns this year.  It seems that strapless is on it's way out and beautiful beadwork, amazing backs, and buttons are back in!  Elizabeth purchased her beautiful Mori Lee gown from J&B Bridals in Chambersburg, PA.
All of the flowers throughout the wedding day were absolutely stunning.  Flowers Unlimited in Martinsburg, WV did a phenomenal job!
Their pups came for a quick photo op and were So. Darn. Cute.
As luck would have it, the rain stopped just long enough for us to go outside and photograph a few portraits in the Historic McFarland House's beautiful courtyard.
Seriously, you guys.  These two are the sweetest!
All of their reception details were not only beautiful, but well thought out and coordinated.
 Elizabeth's brother gave this sweet speech and I love all the beautiful reactions from everyone.
 Perfect ending to a perfect night.


Thank you to all of these amazing vendors for making their day even more perfect:
