Down a mile-long gravel lane, past the browning late-summer cornfields, I saw a tent top in the distance, popping up above a soy bean field. This tableau so perfectly illustrates why I love garden weddings on the Eastern Shore, and, consequently, why I loved Julie and Edward’s September wedding.
My favorite trifecta of elements were there- location, style and emotion. When you throw in a boatload of love, how could it not be the bees knees of fun?! So, Julie and Edward, my star couple, more than held their own in all this, in fact, they seemed to me to ride a big wave of love right into the moon-lit night.
I loved how sweet Edward was with her, how he stole glances throughout the night at his lady love. I like to think that he loved seeing her smile, her obvious joy in her wedding day and her commitment to him.
And Julie, with a great family supporting her, I loved how she glowed. Can that really have happened or did I imagine it? I believe I know the truth! As most brides know, when you finally get to your wedding day, all the planning is over and blessed relief has set in. I felt that Julie let go of all that “stuff” completely and so totally enjoyed her day that each and every moment was reflected in her expressions. Needless, to say, I loved working with them both!
