Emily and Zack had a dream wedding in August 2017 at Airlie, a venue in Warrenton, VA. Airlie serves not only as a gorgeous wedding venue, but also as a hotel, with plenty of room for you and your guests (including the fury ones!) to stay right on the property -- how convenient is that?! Airlie is situated on 300 acres of lush green space and sits at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is the perfect spot for both your ceremony and reception. If you're looking for gorgeous garden space, amazing Spanish steps and an equally beautiful indoor Plan B option (which we ended up needing to use), this place is worth checking out!
We started working with Emily and Zack about a month prior to their wedding date, and what a beautiful, sweet couple they are! They are both teachers and had a 6 month engagement before their big day. The theme for the day was vintage chic with a touch of travel, and featured antique books, typewriters and globes, and 1930s and 40s luggage. Guests found their seats at reception tables named for various countries around the world.
Most importantly, their love for each other was SO apparent. We may or may not have shed a few tears during the ceremony, as they both read heartfelt notes to each other. At one point the officiant asked Emily and Zack to turn and face all their wedding guests to see the love and support everyone had for them in the room (gahh!! cue the waterworks!)
When we asked what they were most looking forward to on their wedding day, they responded with, "being married!" That's definitely the best part, right?! It was such a blessing to be part of this special day. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Henderson! Thank you for allowing us to share in your wedding day!
