Weekend Update

June 10, 2019

Now time for Weekend Update Part 2! If you missed Part 1, you can view that here. On Thursday, I photographed Caden and Rachel’s gorgeous wedding at Walden Hall. I always love Thursday weddings because though it feels like it should be Saturday, I still have my whole weekend ahead.

It was a hot and humid wedding but Caden and Rachel had the most gorgeous mountain view ceremony with a floral arch which was just stunning! The rest of their wedding day flew by, even for me! I felt like I batted an eye and it was time to head home. Enjoy a few sneak peeks from this gorgeous wedding. Can’t wait to share their full wedding blog with you soon.

A few take aways/ lessons learned from this weekends events:

– Walden Hall is in Culpepper. For some reason I thought Culpepper was near Warrenton. It is not! The drive there was gorgeous. I love that wide open country space.

– I loved Walden Hall so much, I’ll have to keep it in mind when my youngest sister gets married!!

Special thanks to the vendors who made Caden and Rachel’s wedding so special!
