Jake and Ellie planned a spring wedding at Arbor Haven in Fredericksburg, Virginia but thanks to Covid they had to postpone. Luckily, event regulations loosened right before their new wedding day and they were able to celebrate as planned with all of their friends and family members.
Arbor Haven was a perfect venue. The bride and groom both had on-site getting ready suites, the ceremony was in front of a beautiful pond and gazebo and the reception tent provided for tons of space for both seating and a spacious dance floor. Antonia of Antonia Experience did a phenomenal job making sure every detail was on point! The decor was elegant and romantic and the golden glow through the tent and flickering candlelight at sunset were absolutely breathtaking.
Unfortunately, there was one very special family member missing. Although Ellie lost her father in December, his presence was still felt throughout the day… from his photograph gracing the ceremony to the speeches by Ellie’s uncle and sister. The evening culminated with a heartfelt slideshow including home movies, photos and texts between Ellie and her father regarding wedding planning. What a beautiful way to include him in their wedding day.
Ellie and Jakes wedding was one I will not soon forget and I am thankful that I was able to capture their beautiful day.
