This was a classic late-summer wedding at Aldie Mansion, one of my all time favorite venues. We couldn’t have asked for better weather or better quality of light. Lots of warm sunshine filtering through the trees and reflecting off various surfaces. Maggie got ready at her parents house in North Wales with her three bridesmaids, including her sister who’s downtown wedding I had the pleasure of photographing just a two years ago. I loved how Maggie hand-embroidered her shoes (Toms!) with their wedding date, such a sweet touch.
Tyler rolled in at about 1:45 for the first look, which we staged in the front yard under the shade trees, their wedding party and family looking on from a distance. From there the day flowed seamlessly along through the formal portraits, their ceremony under the gorgeous and infamous Aldie oak tree followed by cocktails on the back patio as the sun went down.
