Sandy & Matt – 08.14.10

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned somewhere on here before that I LOVE when couples take their wedding day and make it their own. Sandy and Matt did just that, and their wedding day was such a true reflection of their personalities. An eco-friendly theme showed up in several places in the way of recycled and organic materials, a fresh farm-to-buffet dinner menu, and even vegan shoes! Chris and I had fun capturing all of the little things that made the day unique, starting with the dress that Sandy’s mom made for her. It’s 100% cotton (as the tag indicates) and therefore goes beautifully with the theme:

In lieu of a veil, Sandy wore a simple, fragrant wreath of rosemary:

Sandy’s parents both accompanied her down the aisle: Their ceremony was so sweet:
Chris caught this little guy honoring their union with some festive stickers:
Married! Sandy and Matt’s reception was held at The Farm at Broad Run, and it was just THE perfect spot for their celebration.
The pavilion:
How incredibly delicious-looking is that?! The watermelons made such cute, colorful centerpieces. A tree was planted for each guest as the perfect environmentally friendly favor.
And since Sandy and Matt are both fans of The Beatles, who better to play at the reception than The Apple Core, a Beatles tribute band!
Some of the prettiest cupcakes ever were provided by Mallow Drama: And what farm would be complete without some farm animals! (Captured by Chris, wildlife and farmlife photographer extraordinaire):
I’m pretty sure in this next shot he is saying, “Congratulations, Sandy and Matt!” The minute I pulled up to the farm and saw these greenhouses, I knew that I desperately wanted to do a few photos in there, and I’m SO GLAD we had the chance: (And since I promised to have this blog post up on Monday but it’s nearing my bedtime, I’m going to wrap it up there!) Sandy and Matt! Thank you so much for inviting Chris and me to capture your wedding day. We were so honored to be a part of the occasion and it was fun to see your amazing plans come to fruition. We wish you both all the best!
