I love everything about weddings: the flowers, the dresses, the food, but I don’t get to go to weddings very often now that I’m in my late 30’s. Saturday, we were invited to a beautiful wedding at Oakridge Estate in Nelson County. Since I’m from Nelson, I’ve been to a few weddings at Oakridge and even had my 10 year class reunion there. It was empty for years and years and was purchased and refurbished when I was in college. I was so excited when I got to see it for the first time. I’d always heard all about it, but the property was guarded when the estate was uninhabited, and you can’t see it well from the road.
We have been friends with both the bride and groom for a long time. The groom is in his mid-40’s, never married, and very athletic. The bride is in her mid-30’s, never married, and also very athletic. A good friend of mine set them up, they dated a few years, and now they are husband and wife.
Now, to share some scenes from the wedding.

I love the back of her dress.
This one is kind of dark. I’m in the brown dress beside the girl in the white and black toile dress.
Doing what I do best – Talking!
