Kristen & Cole were married on the most beautiful May day at Pharsalia in Tyro, Virginia.  Pharsalia is beautiful at any time of the year, but May, it just shows off.  Pharsalia is a flower farm and May is peak peony season!  I have never, ever seen so many peonies in my life!  Their herb garden was in full bloom (see first look photos below) and I fell deeper in love with this place!

Kristen wore a beautiful custom lace gown and jewelry from BHLDN.  Cole wore a blue suit from Ralph Lauren.  Kristen’s bridesmaids looked stunning in an assortment of dresses from BHLDN.  She and the bridesmaids carried peony bouquets made by Pharsalia’s resident flower extraordinaire, Foxie.  Custom made invitations by Hadley Designs helped bring the theme of gold and pink together beautifully!  Kristen and Cole had a HUGE bridal party and they were some of the best I’ve gotten to photograph!  The guys were up for anything and were so genuine and relaxed.  It was obvious how much the girls love Kristen, especially her sister, Meg…I heard Meg express her love for Kristen (& Cole) numerous times throughout the day!  Meg made these giant canvases for the bars that pin pointed the origins of each specialty drink being offered — a special touch to Kristen’s love of travel.  Cole & Kristen exchanged gifts before their first look and Cole surprised Kristen with a dog collar for their NEW GREAT DANE PUPPY (that they’ll be bringing home this fall)!!!  Best. Wedding. Gift. Ever. Her reaction was priceless (see below)!

The two partied the night away with some of the most energetic and dance-crazy friends and family I have ever witnessed at a wedding!  Their guests could not wait to get out on the dance floor and the dancing didn’t stop all night long…except for maybe a slice of delicious cake, a homemade cookie…or a late-night snack, Chick-fil-a!  Two of the sweetest people are now married and off in Bali relaxing on their honeymoon!  I can’t wait to send them their full gallery, but this will definitely do until then!  Congrats again Kristen & Cole!
