Romantic Wedding at the Barn at Silverstone

May 19, 2021

Romantic wedding at The Barn at Silverstone

They held hands; the biggest grins fell across their faces. Nothing else mattered at the moment during their romantic wedding at the Barn at Silverstone. Melanie had just come down the aisle, her dad by her side, with the gorgeous train of her dress flowing behind.

Tears streaming down all three of their faces.

The day, the moment, had finally arrived. Melanie’s dad gave her a final hug and shook Chris’s hand. Letting them know, he fully supported their marriage. From that moment on, the two of them locked eyes. People moved and spoke around them, but they were just focused on each other. What this day meant for them. What their future would hold.

They didn’t know, but all they cared about was being side-by-side through it all!

And it showed in their vows to one another. Each shared different funny stories that had the whole barn laughing. Each shared promises for what was ahead. But in every moment, you could see the love and happiness beaming out of each of them!

They had waited for this moment, and it was finally here!

As the ceremony came to a close, the officiant spoke the most exciting sentence of them all, “Chris, you may kiss your bride.” Cheers and clapping rang through the space as Melanie and Chris shared their first kiss as a married couple. The two of them were overly ecstatic! It was official!

The whole rest of the day, they couldn’t stop the kisses!

Honestly, I didn’t want them to. It makes me so happy to see my couples so in love. They deserve it! This past year has been crazy for so many couples having to plan their weddings. Dates get moved. Vendors have to change. Going places is a nightmare. Luckily, for Melanie and Chris, they were able to keep their original date, but that doesn’t mean it still wasn’t taxing on them.

Through it all, they always had a smile on their faces.

Eager to get another thing checked off the list. Taking each bump in the road day-by-day. Their wedding day turned out incredible. The details were gorgeous. Family and bridal party was a complete joy. And vendor team was a home run! This day will seriously go down as one of my all-time favorites, and Melanie and Chris, it was all for you! You two are absolutely incredible.

You each have the biggest hearts.

I know I said it to you on the wedding day, but it is so bittersweet that your wedding day has come and gone. I am so happy for you and this new journey you are on together. But I’ll miss our random emails or checkup phone calls! You are the ideal HMP couple, and I can’t thank you enough for that! Thank you for trusting me. For allowing me to be a part of your day! I will never take those moments for granted! It was a true honor to capture your wedding day, and I can’t wait for your to relive the full story soon.

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
