brother-in-law gets hitched!

 

It was a busy weekend here in the Garber family household... baby brother Jonathan got married!  Jonathan and Erika have known each other since 9th Grade and have been dating since their second year of college.  A long-awaited day! 

They chose the historic Rosemont Manor in Berryville, VA, for their wedding.  They planned to have the wedding on the lawn in front of the Manor House, but just for good measure the bridal party also practiced on the porch.  Good thing they did, because it rained throughout the entire ceremony, and so that's where the ceremony was held! 


Isn't it gorgeous?  It reminded us so much of Raspberry Plain, the beautiful old Virginia manor house that Elliott and I chose for our wedding.

The rehearsal dinner was at the Garbers' house (!), which definitely was a lot of work for the family to get everything ready, but was a total success and so much fun.  I took a million pictures of the rehearsal dinner at my mother-in-law's request and plan to share a few soon, after I do some editing.

As I was a reader in the wedding and Elliott was a groomsman, I couldn't take any photos for awhile once the wedding began, but it was so tasteful and so lovely.  The rain didn't detract from anything; instead it seemed to make it more intimate and unforgettable.  The wonderful reception included family-style dining on chicken and mashed potatoes, caramel apples for favors, Pumpkin Spice and Maple Walnut Crunch cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, and plenty of dancing with a fabulous DJ.  Lena partied along with all of us... our little social butterfly!

Congratulations, Jonathan & Erika!  We love you!

  1. It sounds like a lovely day was had by all. I am so glad. I was at 2 weddings on the weekend - well I was able to attend the pre-wedding party on Friday night of my very good friends Keith and Amanda but since they have only announced their engagement and planned their wedding in the space of 3 months I was already committed to attending my cousin's wedding on Saturday. So I partied till midnight on Friday then at 7am I set off on my 220 mile drive to the Saturday wedding. All in all a fab time was had but I do so wish I could have been in 2 places at once ;-)
