The words Liz and Nate used to describe their vision for their wedding were: old-fashioned, honest and country. They imagined being surrounded by nature, chose to use local vendors, cut their flowers themselves and used chicken and produce directly sourced from East Lynn Farm, in Round Hill, Va. where they also held their wedding day. What they created was a wholesome, sweet, family-friendly celebration that reflected their vision perfectly. Their loved ones gathered around them in a circle as they expressed their vows to each other. Family and friends spoke to Liz and Nate during their ceremony, expressing their thoughts and well wishes. Guests sat down for a culinary experience as the chefs from Capital Taste did their magic even while the weather added a little rain to the mix. And, amid laughs, pie and babies being passed from one friend’s arms to another’s, the evening drew to a close with bluegrass filling the air. Following are my favorites from the day: enjoy!

A big thank you to wonderful vendors, who put together a perfect Southern wedding for me to document. Following are my favorites from the day: enjoy!

Tyler and Nicole’s fall wedding at Smokey Glen Farm in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was rustic chic, offbeat and simply beautiful. A sunset ceremony was followed by some pretty competitive yard games of basketball, mini golf, croquet and even a little bit of soccer for Tyler. Then Tyler and Nicole, who are themselves Philadelphia-based restauranteurs, treated their guests to a scrumptious meal of BBQ chicken and other goodies made by the folks at Smokey Glen Farm. Pies baked in custom outdoor, charcoal fired ovens and a vinyl-spinning DJ were the final touches on a day filled with romance and fun. Many wishes of happiness to Tyler and Nicole and following are our favorites from the day: enjoy!
