We had a beautiful, albeit overcast day for Jackie and Anthony’s Oatlands Historic House & Gardens micro wedding last weekend! Although this was not originally the plan for Jackie and Anthony’s wedding day, they handled everything so well and decided to come up with a new game plan. Because they didn’t want to wait another year to get married, they decided on a small, intimate wedding ceremony with approximately 15 of their family members by their side, and postponed the original game plan to make their big wedding fall on their one year anniversary next year at Riverside on the Potomac. I think that’s a pretty great solution and can’t wait to see them all again for their big party in a year!
I photographed their intimate micro wedding as the only photographer last Saturday and really enjoyed getting to meet and witness the union of these two amazing people. Jackie and Anthony are so good together and it’s been an honor getting to know them throughout this process. Their micro wedding began with a couple of details, then we moved straight into the ceremony, family formals, portraits of the two of them, and a few toasts before dinner.
PS., can we discuss how stunning the grounds are at Oatlands Historic House? The garden area was so peaceful and beautiful with so many amazing little surprises and spots around every corner, I could have stayed there for hours! And they have the cutest little greenhouse there also. Any planner friends want to hold a styled session in that greenhouse, feel free to reach out! I’d love to chat.
Anthony and Jackie’s day flew by but I wanted to share a few glimpses into their day, so here we go!
Married! Check out that photo above and to the left. That was the look they exchanged right after making it back down the aisle moments after they were husband and wife! Their smiles say it all.
Congratulations, Jackie & Anthony! I can’t wait to celebrate with you both again in 2021!
