This was both of ours second wedding so we wanted more of a casual wedding. Our wedding was so much fun and meant so much more because of our friends involved. The location was my friend's gorgeous backyard. Our bartender was another girlfriend (and for a short time my boss was back there bartending!). Photographer was a friend and the officiant was a friend - it all meant so much more to us.
It was wonderful having my daughter as my maid of honor and she also "gave me away." We walked in to the song "Jessica's Soneta" from the movie "Man from Snowy River." She thought it was neat that the song shared her name.
Hubby's son was his best man. Very casual . . . Noah got to wear shorts!
And what southern gal wouldn't want to have 2 drinks in her hand?! We had been to a wine festival and bought 30+ bottles of wine and had them at the reception. Our guests loved having a sampling of all different types of Virginia wines. I'm so glad we did that.
The next morning we headed to Charleston, SC and Kiawah Island for our honeymoon. I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding!
