Kathryn + Bryan's wedding was a blast! Kathryn's brother is one of my very best friends, so I've known her for quite a while. I was amazed by how well she was able to incorporate little aspects of her and Bryan's personalities into their wedding day.
The ceremony took place on their families Historic home aka The Island along the river in Gloucester, Virginia. The bright blue hues that Kathryn chose for her bridesmaid dresses perfectly complimented all of the natural greenery and blue tones of the water.
Kathryn's family loves nature and the environment. It's a huge part of who they are and she was able to incorporate that love into her ceremony in some very unique ways. Instead of doing the classic unity candle during their ceremony, they opted to plant a tree together. They had watering pots that spelled out L-O-V-E and during the ceremony they watered the plant together. The next day they planted the tree on the property. It was such a thoughtful and unique spin on something we see so often. When we arrived at the reception, I was happy to see that she kept the nature theme afloat by having seeds as the wedding favor.
Music is also something that is incredibly important to Kathryn + Bryan. They had Colin & Caroline play some of their favorite songs during their ceremony and into the cocktail hour. Their acoustic tunes really helped set the mood for the entire wedding day. They also had a phenomenal band called The Jangling Reinharts play at their reception. Every single person there hit the dance floor.
The entire reception was an absolute blast, and they ended the night with a sparkler send off. Glint Events coordinated the entire day and did such an exceptional job making sure everything ran smoothy. It truly was such an amazing day! Congratulations to Kathryn + Bryan!
A huge thanks to all of the vendors who contributed to this amazing day!
