It isn't every groom that sets the mood for his proposal with panic, but that's what Jim Wano inadvertently did when a detour to pick up his engagement ring sent him home late to his worried girlfriend, Leslie. "In he walked," she remembers, "and I was so overwhelmed with relief, I was crying." Tears of worry soon gave way to tears of joy, however, when Jim got down on one knee and out popped the ring! It was the moment that the couple, who met online, officially went from match.com to match made in heaven, and started planning a celebration that brought the unique character of their relationship into the design. VIRGINIA BASED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER ELISA BRICKER captured these beautiful photos, and the warm sophisticated styling by TYPE A SOCIETY is so en pointe. And that gorgeous scotch bar? Well every groom's dream right?
The bride's favourite detail of the day was the way that the altar was set up with the backdrop of the forest. The groom's favourite detail? The scotch bar of course!
Leslie chose a garden style for her florals which were created by Carrie from TYPE A SOCIETY. Sticking to white blooms and greenery, the simplicity made them so timeless and perfect.
