Juliana and Matthew planned a beautiful garden wedding at Rixey Manor on Saturday, and not even a surprise thunderstorm could get in the way of the celebration. The sky cleared in time for their tented reception, decorated with pastel colors and featuring the dreamiest views. Notable guests included their sweet pups and a couple of friendly horses (who we learned can be attracted by bridal bouquets). The rain clouds left behind a perfect sunset for this wonderful couple.
If Saturday’s storm was any indication, things don’t always go exactly as planned. Having a team that is able to pivot quickly and enact alternate plans makes all the difference on a wedding day. With plenty of buffer time in the timeline, hands-on venue owners (Rixey Manor could not have been more supportive), and flexible spaces, everything continued on with barely a hitch.
