When I say this wedding had everything, that is absolutely NO exaggeration! From a butterfly release in honor of Megan & Will's late grandparents, and a fumbling groomsman who dropped the rings during the ceremony, to a fun Southern tradition of burying the bourbon which worked like a charm in warding off bad weather, to out-of-this-world catering and a photo booth at cocktail hour, to a Maid of Honor/bridesmaid toast to the tune of the Spice Girls' Wannabe, to twerking, cigars, late-night pizza, the groom's very own gourmet popsicles for an extra-special treat, to hired coach buses to ensure safe travel for their guests to & from their hotel, no stone was left unturned when it came to Megan & Will's off-the-charts, beautifully romantic, perfectly rustic wedding at The Vintager Inn in New Kent, Virginia. They treated their guests to an evening they won't soon forget, and it was a thrill for me to be there, capturing each and every moment!
The best part for me, however, wasn't all of these amazing details. Sure, there was an endless amount of beauty and fun at each twist and turn, but what made my heart full was to hear Megan repeat all morning/afternoon, "I just want to see Will! I just want to see him!" I didn't get in this field to shoot pretty things; I wanted to do this job to shoot beautiful moments and this wedding is chock-full of them.
Megan and Will are surrounded by parents who adore them, and a group of friends who most of us dream of having. They are down-to-Earth southern sweethearts who are crazy about each other, and the life that they've created. What more could I possibly ask for in the people I serve?
This post is epic. With over one hundred images to scroll through, you can see for yourself how much love, happiness, and completely fun-loving this couple, their families & friends are.
All of my love to you, Mr. & Mrs. Auman!
