Now to wrap up our time with the Queen and King of Awesome Town, Sylvette and Nate. We last left off drooling over their “First Look” hotness in Part 1. We are now moving on to the main event!
The Old Town Manassas Train Station played host to Sylvette and Nate’s ceremony. We then walked a block over to the Center for the Fine Arts at the Candy Factor for their funlicious reception. Despite the rain that started as we shot the last photo you saw in Part 1 of the bridal party on the tracks…..the weather could not dampen the spirits of all attending this much awaited event.
Peacock plumes were in full effect as the main accent piece along with the gorgeous jewel tones.
Nate and his grandma before the ceremony.
The moms embracing before taking their seats. Such a loving and affection crew. It was very refreshing.
One of my favorite pictures ever! Sylvettes arrival in a classic Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.
Love her parents response to the kiss!
The rain slowed enough to a drizzle that Sylvette got the group shot she wanted!
Let’s get partying! I wish I could make this photo come to life because I have NEVER seen someone dance with such vigor and bounce in my life! She tore it up on the floor!
Nate’s brother and best man gave the toast. He shared about his horrific car accident leaving him with permanent brain damage and yet has maintained his incredible sense of humor. It was a beautiful, raw and poignant speech of love and admiration for Nate and Sylvette and yet peppered with hilarious stories about Nate. I love learning about families through the speeches.
Sylvette and Nate insisted we clock out and enjoy the last hour of the reception with them. YES PLEASE! I haven’t danced in so long and it felt right to become part of the crowd, part of their friends celebrating their day.
You guys are so dear to us. We left with such sadness that we live so far away for I know when you got back from your honeymoon we totally would have been hanging out if we lived in the same town. You make that trip to Lynchburg happen, you hear us!
Sylvette and Nate, we love you both and thank you truly for choosing us! Blessings on your marriage.
