Mr. & Mrs. Rowland's Wedding Day
April 3, 2021
We Have Decided on Forever
This was what my husband and I call a DREAM wedding day.
The weather was very windy
but the sun was warm and beautiful.
Everything went as smooth as butter with some amazingly special moments everywhere.
I arrived at Fair Oaks Farm's hotel and joined the bride, her mom, the groom's mom and her bridesmaids in the bridal sweet.
The groom's sister met me at the door
with a special note the groom had written
but had to be specially given, so not to mess up the makeup...
When a groom says that you know there will be a few tears.
The excitement rose in me because if you know me you know I love surprises and special moments!
Now, the girls were almost done with hair and makeup and the laughter filled the room.
One open eye on the bridesmaids getting ready
but the other one watching
for that special time to give Megan that note before it was makeup time.
Let's say the moment was priceless but it lead to a surprise for the groom that would come right before the first look.
Harry joined the guys at Cody's house
in the magnificent barn (as he called it) perfect for you guessed it, Guy stuff. lol
Time to get this beautiful lady in her wedding dress.
Cody and Megan chose a first look
but because it was so windy we decided to do that in the pass through in between the hotel and the restaurant.
After a few mishaps with people passing by they had a very special first look alone
thanks to the Maiden of Honer guarding the door.
Meet the bridal party.
Are you ready because here comes your bride.
as though no one is watching,
as though you have never been loved before,
as though no one can hear you,
as though heaven is on earth
and most of all love the journey you are on!
