It there was ever a wedding that tested my ability as a wedding photographer, James & Tori’s wedding at Clay Hill Garden Events in Yale, Virginia was the wedding. Just minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start, a dangerous storm rolled through the area. Hail, lightening, and high winds delayed their wedding for more than 30 minutes. But as they say, “we adapted and overcame”. The staff at Clay Hill Gardens quickly grabbed umbrellas, and set up the wedding inside their rustic barn. Sometimes the best plans are “Plan B”.
As documentary wedding photographers, we documented the day as it unfolded. I think these images tell the story of their day perfectly. We included a few of of their DIY decorations and their unique cakes as well for wedding inspiration Take a look!
We wish these two all the love in the world as they begin their journey today. They truly weathered the storm on Day 1 of their marriage. The best is yet to come!
