Tiffany and James are an adorable couple. Tiffany’s mom Sandie worked with Diamond Events to bring together the couples creative vision of an outdoor tent wedding at the historic Oakland Green Farm and Bed & Breakfast in Loudoun County. The property makes a lovely weekend getaway for a wedding. Friday night the bride and bridesmaids spent the night in the Oakland log cabin built in the 1730’s. In the morning the girls were treated to a delightful breakfast and shortly after the hairstylist met them onsite to begin updo’s. Roger Canada of Broadleaf photography had plenty of time to take the groomsmen and later the bridesmaid’s pictures all around the property for some great shots.
Just as we thought the day progressed without a hitch, the wind began to blow in and the rain started to pour an hour before guests arrived. For an outdoor wedding, the doppler radar is a must! The couple chose to wait out the storm and wait for a break in the clouds before starting their ceremony. Only a few minutes behind schedule, the bride left the log cabin with her dad by her side to meet James at the end of the aisle. It was a beautiful ceremony that was almost complete before the clouds returned and the rain again began pouring. Everyone quickly gathered their things and moved under the tent for the couple to finish their vowels and seal their love with a kiss! They were finally married!
The rain eventually left and Roger Canada was able to get some great shots of the wedding party with their umbrella’s, I can’t wait to see the final results! Jason Reeves of Market Salamander did an amazing job in carrying through the romantic design of the couple’s wedding invitations, Splendid Swirls by Wedding Paper Divas. Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted incredible as well! The flowers by Holly Chapple Flowers were amazing. The table centerpieces varied between the square vases filled with lime slices, along with a unique cylindrical vase swirled with pink tulips. The only word to describe the buffet arrangement is breathtaking!
At the end of the night the couple was treated to a sparkler exit before making their way back to the cabin. Even with a little rain, they weren’t going to let the dampness ruin their spirits! Congrats Tiffany and James, I hope you carry your cheery disposition and determination on to everything you do together!
