Ever since Sydney & Andrew’s engagement session, I was extremely excited for their upcoming wedding day. Their admiration for each other is extremely evident in their sweet and gentle interactions. I have never met a bride so relaxed and easygoing on her wedding day. Both bride and groom were surrounded by family and friends throughout the morning – everyone was so happy to celebrate their union as husband & wife. Getting married at The Vanlandingham Estate was a perfect fit for this couple. It has that refined old estate feel but is also surrounded by numerous beautiful and plush gardens and the large gorgeous southern trees that hold many years of history and rich stories. I loved how the couple incorporated the southernness of the estate by filling the backyard with classic outdoor games, a paint by number canvas, wildflowers at every turn, and a dessert table that would rival Paula Deen’s kitchen any day. Carla at Style Perfect Weddings & Events did a wonderful job and it was so exciting to see how the ideas, planning, and coordination unfolded so beautifully. I won’t lie, I teared up on multiple occasions throughout the day. It was simply beautiful. All of it. Oh and I’ll tell you one thing, this couple and their friends/family can DANCE. Andrew said it best “I feel like I’ve married into the Travolta family!” The dance floor never stopped hopping. A big thank you to Sydney & Andrew for allowing me the honor to capture the story of your wedding day. It is truly a gift to capture such a pure & gentle love that you both share. Enjoy!
That wedding band (below) has been passed down through Sydney’s family for generations. I just love that!
