A Vintage Wedding in Middleburg

Sunday, August 13, 2006
Hi all!

Well, we were off the *whole* month of July. I had these big grandiose plans to do so many different things! Well, I did a few, but the whole month FLEW by!!

We took a last minute wedding at the end of June. Brandi was marrying on August 5th, and was currently in the midst of studying for comps for her Master's degree. Brandi is a classmate / friend of our April 29th Bride - Jackie. I had planned to be off until August 19th, but I couldn't refuse any friend of Jackie's :-) ... And, I'm glad I didn't - Brandi was AMAZING! And her wedding couldn't have turned out any better.

The weather was lovely - perfect for a vintage wedding. The Ceremony took place in the very small, quaint Middleburg United Methodist Church. It's one of those Churches that seats about 100 people. The Photographers were Richard Jones and Ray Vanover. They are based out of Kentucky, the Bride's home.

The Reception site was at the Middleburg Community Center. And I know what you're thinking - Community Center? Well, this wasn't your mamma's Community Center ;-) ... There were no basketballs or kids running around. This building looked like it was built in the 1800's - the architecture was simple and beautiful. There were dark expresso hardwood floors, Chandeliers and beautiful sconces.

I must tell you, I LOVED Brandi and Brian. They are such warm and open people. Not to mention cute too! Their kids are going to be gorgeous! Brandi just kept asking was everything fine, and did I need anything. I mean, it's her *big* day, and she's asking about me. How cool is that?!

Brandi also had a vintage theme laced throughout the wedding. She went with the whole "antique" Middleburg feel. She used a vintage font on all of the stationary; Both Brian & Brandi's mom both displayed their actual wedding gowns on dress forms at the Reception, in addition to pictures of them wearing the dresses; And one of the best touches - All of the centerpieces were in vintage hat boxes. John Duffy over at YellowDoor provided the flowers - and of course they were stunning!

Here are a couple of pictures of the wonderful day:

Oh, and here's a picture of me -> I'm always clutching my phone and that gameday book - the Holy Grail!!!

Okay, that's it for now :-)
