Rachael and Jordan were married at Historic Rosemont Manor in Berryville, Va. “When I arrived at Historic Rosemont Manor, I instantly was reminded of my childhood home,” Rachael said. “I grew up in a 100-year-old house in downtown Leesburg and have fond memories of my time spent there. I knew right then and there that it was the venue I would be married at.” The outdoor ceremony included bright pops of color — pink, orange, and yellow as well as the indoor reception. Lantern centerpieces were surrounded with small floral arrangements, and the wedding cake featured sugar flowers cascading down three tiers. “My mother loves doing origami and handmade all the boxes that we used as favors,” she said. “It’s a good thing I was engaged for 17 months because this was not a quick task.” Her favorite moment? Seeing her husband for the first time, of course! But also when her decorator took her from the cocktail hour to show her the reception all set up before guests were in it. “It was exactly how I had envisioned it would look,” Rachael said. “As a bride, you work so hard to make your dream wedding come to life, and when you see it all come together, it’s the best feeling in the world.”

Trish and Joel were married on a warm summer day at The Manor House in Littleton, Col. “We loved nearly everything about The Manor House, from the scenery to the charm of the house, and especially the service we received from the staff,” Trish said. “Even though the day went by quickly, we were able to spend plenty of time with our family and loved ones too.” Trish walked down the aisle holding back tears as she approached Joel standing behind a dramatic backdrop of Deep Creek Canyon. “We both will never forget the look on each other’s faces,” she said. The tented reception featured a gray and yellow color scheme. Check out those tall floral arrangements and lemons! Besides dancing, guests enjoyed playing corn hole and posing in front of the photo booth with props.

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I wanted something that was quintessential Charleston. Charles Towne Landing is also special to me because my parents and I were always there as child. My parents are deceased, and I wanted a place where I had fond memories of them.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Chandeliers hanging from the majestic oak trees.

2. Farm tables.

3. Nearly every single centerpiece was something I found in the garages, storage units or in our home, family and friends. I purchased 6 new pieces. Mostly candelabras.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

That it rained, and it didn’t steal our joy. At first, I was very upset and then, I let it go. It was out of my hands. Now, I look back at the photos and video, and wouldn’t have it any other day. We danced in the rain all night long. My dress was a bloody mess, but it was everything we could have asked for and more. Now, we dance in the rain every single chance we get.

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We picked The Peter Allen House because it had the perfect combination of beautiful outdoor scenery and a classy vintage backdrop.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My bouquet, the ceremony programs, and the signs my Dad made for around the grounds.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

As part of our wedding, we decided to do a foot washing ceremony to demonstrate our commitment to putting the other first and serving one another in love. The combination of this act, the music, and the atmosphere made it a very memorable moment, not just for ourselves, but for everyone who attended.

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Burr Homestead is a charming, sun-filled historic house (John Hancock got married there!) with majestic columns on the front porch, thick wooden floors panels, three fireplaces, and a festive mural. And the outside of the house was exactly what we wanted. It had a brick entry with green hedges, large side lawns with enormous oak trees, and a colorful garden with a pond in the back. It was a blank canvas for us to mold into the fun, backyard wedding that we wanted.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Two food trucks! We were so thrilled to have Caseus Cheese Truck (from New Haven) and Luke’s Lobster Roll (from NYC) come to Fairfield for the cocktail hour. Lobster rolls are one of my favorite foods, and they were a big hit along with the gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches!

2. Our wedding planner (Michelle Neff of Dreaming Tree Events) decorated the outside of the house with vintage pieces of furniture, yard games (custom-made bags and bocce) and Chinese lanterns. The lanterns, which were hung in the trees, reflected the afternoon spring light. I could not have imagined it would look so warm and inviting.

3. Family and friends are really important to us, and we wanted to incorporate their pictures inside the house. It took us a while to pick the ones we wanted to highlight but loved that we could include pictures of almost everyone at our wedding.

 3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

We had an incredibly hard time choosing our first dance song, but the one song we immediately agreed on was for the cake cutting. I don’t know why, but “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show seemed like the most perfect song to play at that point in the night. The song meant so much to us, and we jumped right on the dance floor after we cut the cake. No one was paying too much attention to us at that point, and we really had a moment to ourselves singing and slow dancing to the song that really felt like “our” song.
