Kristen and Cameron’s friends and family describe them as a “match made in heaven”, and for them it was important that their wedding honor their spiritual side. They planned a garden ceremony at The Plantation at Sunnybrook in Roanoke, Virginia, but when the forecast called for rain they did some quick maneuvering and sought shelter on the historic house’s grand porch. They never let the rain get them down though, instead choosing to remain upbeat and focus on what was important, their love and the commitment they were about to make to one another. The ceremony featured a live vocal and piano performance and after Kristen and Cameron said “I do”, the skies cleared and they were able to get some outdoor portraits with their playfully styled wedding party.
Kristen made a beautiful bride in her lace gown with its narrow A-line skirting and sheer shoulder detailing. She finished her look with a fingertip veil and a simple pearl necklace for an elegant springtime style. Her bridesmaids wore lilac gowns with lace bodice embellishments and her maid of honor stood out from the pack in aqua, creating a playful palette that carried through to their bouquets. Cameron and his groomsmen were handsome in light gray, each with a coordinated tie to accentuate the color scheme of the ladies’ gowns. Cameron wore a vest to set him apart from his guys and each gentleman pinned a simple boutonnière to his shirt.
At the reception, tables were set with delicate arrangements of roses and wildflowers and gilded frames held the table numbers. After dinner, it was all about the dancing! Kristen, Cameron and their guests took the party outside to the porch, where Edison lights were strung high above the dance floor, to get their groove on. Pausing only to cut their four-tiered wedding cake, which was decorated with pale pink peonies, this amazingly upbeat couple danced the night away in celebration of the start of their new life together as husband and wife. Congratulations Kristen and Cameron!
