Sarah + Ben's Backyard Wedding | Kinsale, VA
Congratulations to Sarah and Ben!
We had a blast at this gorgeous backyard wedding in Kinsale, Virginia. (Um, can this be our backyard, please?) The night before the wedding, we "glamped" with the bride-to-be and her wedding party at a nearby cabin on the water. It was so fun to get to know everyone in a totally different way than we normally have the opportunity to do!
After the wedding, we asked Ben to answer a few questions for our blog and we cant help but share this adorable couple's story - from the day they met to their wedding day! Enjoy!
We had been dating for a little over 3.5 years when we got engaged. We met when I was working at the Nordstrom e-bar in Tysons Corner and she was shopping there. She paid her sister $20 to give me her number. I like to say I was bought. haha
I have a river house in southern Maryland that has been in my family for about 105 years. After a couple weeks of knowing her, I learned she has a river house in Kinsale, VA (by the northern neck - and where we got married). She pulled it up on google maps and I zoomed out a little. Ironically, her river house is directly across the Potomac River from my house.
Each summer we go to another lake house in northern Michigan which has been in my family for 110 years. We love picking raspberries and visiting nearby vineyards. We enjoy taking our black miniature schnauzer, Sophie, who has an abundance of personality and sass, on walks.
We love finding unique spots to fulfill our photography thirst
I loved that I could look around the yard from one place and see different cohorts of people hanging out and having a great time. I like this because there were so many great places for people to socialize and it was almost like a TV show switching back and forth from scene to scene, from the swing, to the corn hole boards, to the dock, to Maisy, the family dog, doing Goose things (probably looking for scraps) or posing for a photo.
A lot of people say it's hard to take things in during your wedding day, but it seemed like at any given time there were 10 things going on to take in
