When Carly + Nick decided to get married at a local church in Warrenton, VA and celebrate at a beautiful venue called the Retreat at Eastwood, I was super excited to photograph their evening wedding. Then throughout the process, they decided since their ceremony was earlier in the day, they would change their reception to an afternoon reception. Best idea ever!
I believe when couples are super thoughtful and keep their guests in mind, everyone rallies together and has the best time celebrating at a wedding! Carly + Nick have this incredibly sweet and thoughtful relationship themselves, so its not surprising they would take their guests needs into consideration as well!
Although, there might have been a reason to have the reception a bit earlier, after all, Carly + Nick met at Virginia Tech, and it being an October wedding, there was a football game to tend to after the reception. Why not keep the party going as I usually say?
Carly + Nick wanted to have a wine garden party, where everyone felt like family. Seeing by the smiles on the family and friends, I’m pretty sure they got what they wished for!
