Aili & Tom | A Sage & Lavender Rosemont Manor Wedding

Aili & Tom | A Sage & Lavender Rosemont Manor Wedding

When two firefighters fall in love, you can look forward to one AMAZING wedding day! We took a road trip to Berryville, Virginia to photograph Aili & Tom‘s wedding at the historic Rosemont Manor. The gorgeous mountain views and getting to see these two again were 100% worth the drive!

Aili and Tom complement each other perfectly. She’s calm, driven, and even-keeled, while he’s a little sillier and playful. However, they’re both incredibly sweet and sincere humans that genuinely care about each other – and the people around them. Their wedding day was full of personal touches and ties to those that love them most. Aili carried the same six pence that her mother used on her own wedding day, and the couple even had friends write their vows for them!

Their wedding was the perfect balance of emotional and rowdy, which is my FAVORITE kind of wedding. There were so many happy tears during the first look, ceremony, and the first dance, and I couldn’t help but tear up a little myself. I love to take a moment and just observe the mothers on wedding days – so full of grace and composure, watching their babies promise forever to each other. It’s hard to believe that someday I’ll be watching my own little girls dancing with their father on their wedding days, and I get emotional just thinking about it!

While there were certainly some happy tears, there was also a whole lot of fun with this group. The groomsmen were all friends of Tom’s from the firehouse, and they were just as rowdy as could be. At one point the best man referred to himself as the “bestest mensch” and I knew right away I was with my kind of people. It’s so important to balance guiding a bridal party into poses, while also giving them space to be themselves. These guys wanted tons of crazy pictures together and I was happy to oblige!

Please enjoy a few of my favorites from Tom & Aili’s wedding day! Congratulations, you two!
