Emily + Blake's wedding day surpassed all of my expectations. Emily had shared with me a little bit of what she had planned, but I was completely blown away by how beautifully her vision came together.
This was the first time we have ever photographed at the Inn at Warner Hall, and I am already dying to go back. The Inn itself is absolutely gorgeous and their bridal suite was the perfect place for Emily and her bridesmaids to get ready before the ceremony. The property surrounding it sits along the river and has so much open space and gorgeous scenery all around.
The entire property was filled with bright pink and magenta flowers that perfectly accented Emily + Blake's wedding colors. I love that Emily chose bold colors for all of the bouquets and centerpieces because they contrasted so nicely against the pastel shades of the bridesmaid dresses.
Emily + Blake's ceremony was one of the most heartfelt, emotional expressions of love that I have ever witnessed. The vows they wrote for each other were so beautiful that they brought tears to my eyes. Just wait until you see their wedding video....you'll understand exactly what I mean.
Happiness was radiating out of Emily + Blake when they were officially announced as husband and wife. This day was spectacular from start to finish. I hope you can feel the love in these photos. Congratulations to Emily + Blake!
Emily Says | Blake and I’s wedding day was more magical then we could have ever imagined. After being long distance for about 2 years it was a huge milestone for us.
The Inn at Warner Hall was the place I wanted to get married ever since I was 12 years old. My grandparents house, now my parents house, is only a mile away so we passed it every time going to Gloucester. It means so much to me to be able to have a huge part of my childhood memories be a part of Blake and I’s special day. The Inn at Warner Hall has always been where I pictured that special day to take place.
Being long distance and planning the wedding while also in medical school was no small task, but Blake and I cannot thank our parents enough for everything they did to make it the most amazing day of our lives. It would not have come together without everyones help and we are forever grateful to be blessed with the best family!
Having all of our family and friends in one place is what made this day so special for us. Blake and I feel that family is very important, and we are both so close with our families that it was such a great feeling having everyone there supporting us. Also, for all the friends that have witnessed Blake and I’s love come into fruition it was special to have them all by our sides as we said “I do”.
Blake and I always knew we wanted to write our own vows. Blake is a much better speaker and writer than myself so I was extremely nervous, but once I sat down and started brainstorming it just poured out. I think my favorite part of the entire day was reading those vows to Blake. It meant so much to both of us to finally be at this point. We wish we could relive every second of it!
