Laura and Stephen’s wedding at the Patrick Henry Ballroom in Roanoke, Virginia was absolutely gorgeous! Wait until you see the beautiful floral centerpieces and lovely wedding cake decorated with white and pink peonies.Ahhh! It was simply stunning! Their outdoor ceremony was held at Laura’s family’s private estate with amazing mountain views that will take your breath away! The bride and the bridesmaids enjoyed a quiet morning at the bride’s family’s farm. The groom and the groomsmen joined them later in the day, before the ceremony started. Laura and Stephen had a few quiet moments to themselves during their first look, followed by some portrait time before the ceremony. After the ceremony was over, the guests headed to the Patrick Henry Ballroom for the reception. The bride’s sister, the maid of honor, surprised the couple with a song she had written for her toast. The song was called “Hey Stephen” (adapted from Taylor Swift’s song) and got quite a few laughs from the guests.
Stephen surprised Laura with a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings the morning of their wedding.
How cute are these rompers the bride and bridesmaids wore the morning of the wedding?
Their private estate outdoor ceremony was one of a kind: mountain views and a bright and sun-filled beautiful afternoon.
The Patrick Henry Ballroom took our breath away! Such gorgeous light inside!
Laura and Stephen surprised their guests with a fun, choreographed dance. When I asked Stephen if he was nervous before the ceremony, he said he was more nervous about their dance than he was about getting married. They really worked hard, and it paid off! Well done, Mr. and Mrs. Knight!
One of the sweetest toasts by the bride’s sister. Needless to say, everyone at the wedding loved it!
