After my initial phone call with the Liz, I knew this wedding was going to be very special! Liz and Jim envisioned a Southern outdoor brunch wedding, full of personal touches and family elements that would create a warm setting and give off just the right amount of sophistication. Woodend Sanctuary was the perfect backdrop and we made sure to take full advantage of the entire property. From bringing in pine wood benches for the ceremony in the beautiful Grove area to hanging personalized signage on the trees lining the pathway to the reception on the lawn where guests enjoyed refreshments from the Mimosas and Bloody Mary Bar. For brunch under the tent, guests were served family style and helped themselves to a biscuit and waffle bar, which were inspired by family recipes. Later in the day everyone enjoyed more merriment out on the lawn by playing cornhole and sampling sweet treats from the trail mix bar, all while bluegrass music was playing away in the background. This wedding exuded the personalities of the bride and groom, and you could really feel the warmth and love surrounding the couple throughout the day! It was truly a pleasure working with Liz and Jim! Their wedding could not have been more perfect, or more beautifully photographed by Liz Fogarty.
