Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Grant! Laura and Jon were married at the historic Rose Hill Plantation last month. Rose Hill is a picturesque countryside estate with a beautiful 18th-century Manor House nestled between a tree-lined crepe myrtle driveway and a quiet lake filled with very friendly swans. It is an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for the most intimate day of your life!
I met Laura last year and from the get go she was beaming with excitement over the wedding venue. I could see from pictures she showed me that is was beautiful, but it is even more impressive in person. On the wedding day, I arrived a little early to capture some of the romantic beauty that Rose Hill has to offer. When Laura arrived, the first thing she said to me was, “I told you!”
The night before the wedding was my first opportunity to meet Laura’s groom. Jon, a Navy SEAL, is a great compliment to Laura. Where Laura is animated, Jon is calm and very humble. It was a pleasure to have met them and watch them interact with each other throughout the day. Jon was very gentle with Laura… he let her shine. One moment I recall was just before the reception was ready to begin, I spotted a wooden fence resting in the path of the setting sun. I politely asked Jon if he would mind standing back for a moment so I could photograph Laura against the fence. He said yes absolutely, she is gorgeous, this is her day. Now how sweet is that?
I also want to thank Erin McLean Events for all their hard work. And a special thank you to Valerie!
