A Patrick Henry Wedding in Roanoke, VA: Laura+Stephen

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.bride and groom photo as husband and wifeAhhh! 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.

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!
