If you’ve ever wondered how adorable a baby in a kilt would be, you’re about to get your answer, and I’ll give you a hint… it doesn’t even fall on a normal cuteness scale. Way too adorable. The kiltwearer himself attended a wedding captured by Aaron Watson Photography, and we’re kind of (okay, totally) blown away by how beautiful the soiree, complete with dining under the Virginia stars, is.
From the photographer… When coming up with a vision of her wedding, it was simple for Rebecca to narrow down what she wanted—good music, delicious food and beautiful June weather. Her prayers were answered when her wedding day was welcomed with sunshine, lush green grass and vibrant-colored summer flowers. She coined her wedding as a “vintage garden party,” with white flowers everywhere.
Rebecca and Ian chose to hold their wedding at the Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia which completed their vintage garden theme. The historic home is stunning on its own, but with a backdrop of its picturesque rolling hills and Blue Ridge Mountains, makes it a breathtaking ceremony and reception space.
These newlyweds were sure to add plenty of personal touches throughout their wedding. One aspect in particular they put a lot of thought into was their music. They spent a great amount of time looking for and selecting their music for the night. As a result, everyone enjoyed a long night of dancing the night away. There were also many DIY touches such as personalized menus and programs. They even gave guests their own welcome bags made out of rustic brown paper bags filled with their favorite childhood treats ranging from Ohio-style buckeye candies, to Canadian rooted maple candies.
The couple happens to share the same favorite wedding memory, which is having a brief “first look” before the ceremony started. Although some consider this breaking tradition, Rebecca and Ian valued their quick peaceful moment together before embarking on their marriage.
